I had a total hip replacement in December 2016. As I began to recover, I developed neuropathy in both feet and lower legs. The pain was very intense and kept me awake at night. It was a burning pain and I could not stand to have the sheets touch my feet. I had taken a nerve medication and had some unpleasant side effects. I had also been taking oxycodone for the hip pain, but ended up taking it for the neuropathy pain.
The response from both my surgeon and primary care doctor was either to take a nerve pill or continue the oxycodone. I continued the oxycodone, but it is an opiate and can be addictive. I really wanted to be off of it.
I found out about Restorative Wellness on Facebook when I saw a posting regarding neuropathy. I contacted them and scheduled a consultation. I was impressed with their knowledge of neuropathy. I underwent some simple tests and learned it could be treated in a natural way. There were a lot of factors involved: changing diet, chiropractic visits, special supplements, foot massages, and equipment to use at home.
After a month in the program, I was able to go off the oxycodone, I was sleeping better, and the pain was greatly lessened in my feet. I have since been introduced to other aspects of Restorative Wellness and am so happy I found Dr. Geck's practice. Thank you Dr. Geck, this experience has been well worth the expense!
