“After 34 years in law enforcement I retired – partly due to developing chronic back pain. I was literally in constant pain, with limited mobility.
For over 7 years my family doctor tried all the traditional medical approaches, but he could not provide relief. I went to a chiropractor, an acupuncturist, and various physical therapists and none of these therapies provided relief either. Desperate, I underwent a series of spinal injections (at the cost of $8,000.00) by an orthopedist and they also failed.
Then a physical therapist directed me to Dr. Charles Harpe. He reviewed all my medical records and created an innovative program of neuro-muscular manipulations and soft tissue injections that treated the root cause of the pain and inflammation – not just the symptoms. After two months I have diminished pain, greatly increased mobility and am now able get back in the gym three days a week. I highly recommend Dr Harpe because he was able to focus on the cause of my pain and then relieve my pain when other people couldn’t.”
I met Dr Harpe in June of 2014 when he became my new primary care doctor. At this point in my life my health was going into a real downward spiral. I could only walk short distances without being winded. I had back and joint pain so severe I had taken to walking with a cane. Also had arthritis, acid reflux, diverticulitis, heart arrhythmia, borderline high blood pressure, migraine headaches and an autoimmune disorder called Relapsing Polychondritis, which attacks cartilage and connective tissues. Also, I was extremely overweight for not just my height, but for just about any height!
