Acupuncture has been utilized by billions of people for thousands of years. Over a quarter of the world’s population in Asia still uses acupuncture as a regular part of their healthcare. In the United States, acupuncture has been recognized as a medical profession for over three decades, but only around 2 percent of the population has ever tried acupuncture.
The Chinese administer acupuncture with frequent treatments, and it is the most effective way. Otherwise, results can be felt, but often disappear before the next appointment. If people can afford to receive acupuncture treatments on a regular basis, the results are cumulative and can be permanent.
Happy patients not only continue to come back, but also bring family and friends. It is for this reason I have chosen to make acupuncture more accessible by not charging more for the initial visit (which is customary), and to set my fee low enough that most people can afford to continue to come as often as they want.
After another round of asthma and severe allergy symptoms last winter, my chiropractor suggested I try an acupuncturist he had just met. At the time I was using two inhalers and a nasal spray with only a little symptomatic and temporary relief. I had also modified my diet and was exercising regularly, but was still extremely miserable. After one acupuncture treatment from Troy, my symptoms improved dramatically. After the second treatment a few days later, I no longer needed the inhalers and have had no asthma symptoms since. My chronic allergy symptoms have pretty much disappeared, too. The subsequent treatments also helped with sleep difficulties and digestive troubles. I highly recommend Troy Heinrichs who is now my "go to" health provider
Just over a year ago, I was diagnosed with avascular necrosis, a painful disease that cuts off blood supply to the bones, causing them to die and ultimately collapse. I immediately went to one of the foremost orthopedic clinics in the US and consulted with a leading specialist who told me that my MRI showed the disease had already killed my left femur from my hip midway to my knee. To make matters worse, I had recently been involved in an accident that cracked the same femur in numerous places and, with no blood supply to help it heal, the bone was in imminent danger of collapsing. By this time, I was able to walk only with a cane and then painfully. The one solution the doctor could offer was to cut out the damaged bone and replace it with a prosthesis. I elected to postpone any surgery and contacted Troy to see if there might be alternatives. Making no promises, he said he thought he could help. Though I've been away from Lincoln on business more than 50% of the time in the 10 months since then, I have been treated by Troy when I'm in town. As a result, I can once again walk normally without a cane and the pain is 95% eliminated. Last week I returned to the orthopedic clinic for my one-year follow up MRI. After reviewing the new images, the doctor said, "This is positive beyond anything I would expect!" In fact, he told me he no longer recommends surgery and that if I continue at the same rate, I could be free of the disease within two years.
