My name is Bobbi Williams. I first started coming to Active Health Clinics for migraines. The migraines I was experiencing, on a scale from 1-10, was an 11. I had been experiencing these for about 6 years, at least once a week. I had seen a neurologist and tried several medications, several at once, including Botox. NOTHING worked. My migraines were so bad they made me nauseated. I was not able to function as a “normal” person. I would be in bed for 3-4 days at a time.
On my first appointment at Active Health Clinics, the provider told me his goal was to rid me of my migraines. I was leery but excited. Within 2 weeks I had been migraine free! Then another week passed and still no headache! I have rarely had a headache since! And when I do, it is a headache and NOT a migraine!! Life is back to normal!
I then started working at Active Health Clinics. This is where I was speaking to the provider and mentioned I have a torn meniscus and was having knee pain. My knee pain was restricting me from wanting to work out, walk my dog, and do day-to-day things that caused my knee pain. I figured that I would have to deal with the pain until it got bad enough that I would have to repair the injury with surgery. I was in no rush to have surgery. So, I let time pass and eventually avoided more and more activities so I wouldn’t have to deal with the pain. After casually discussing my situation with the doctors they informed me that I no longer had to wait until the pain got unbearable and surgery wasn’t my only option for the pain. They suggested a treatment plan, which included Pulse Wave and Joint Injection (can’t say PRP on the website). Each week with the pulse wave machine I could feel my knee getting better and better.
We Paired the injection with the pulse wave machine and it decreased the pain even more. Again, life-changing! I am so glad I was able to find a solution to my pain and avoid taking pain medication and of course that surgery. I am now back to exercising and doing the things I once couldn’t. I have completely changed my health and feel so good. I tell as many patients as I can about my experiences in the office but if I can help even more people with my story, even better! It’s no fun to live life in pain and I am glad I was able to change my life and I know you all can too!
