Treatment for herniated disc
“I incurred a bad reherniation of my L5-S1 disc — of which I’d had a discectomy in 2014. I was seeking any alternative treatment then having to go back under the knife. I read about Dr. Storm and her treatment options and schedule a consultation with her. [Symptoms included] major sciatic nerve pain from my right buttock down my right leg into my foot that had lasted approximately 6 weeks. I could not sleep. I could not walk more than 100 feet without searing pain down my leg. I could not sit nor stand for any periods of time. There was no comfortable position! [After treatment with Dr. Storm] I am back at the gym regularly and I am getting my road/trail mileages backup to an acceptable level. I will continue to see Dr. Storm in the future to ensure that I am maintaining course and speed!”

Getting back in the swing
“I was not able to participate in regular life activities. Regular exercise was difficult to be consistent without major setbacks due to weak back and leg. The inability to “play” with friends and my husband left me feeling isolated and low. Eventually so low that I felt hopeless. Since beginning [treatment] I can feel my leg and foot again. The numbness is almost completely gone and I no longer compensate with my other leg, allowing me to be more active. It changed my life. I am so grateful to Dr. Storm. She is extremely knowledgeable, encouraging, listens and is determined to get to the heart of the issue to help you get better. What I appreciate most is that when I think that I feel ‘good enough’, she helps me address every issue so that I feel ‘my best self‘.”

Excellent orthopedic results
“Dr. Storm has treated several of my creaky joints from long-ago injuries, all with impressive results. Both of my thumbs had become progressively more painful and crunchy– lots of noise in the joints with use–since dislocating them in a car crash 35 years ago. I was worried that I only had a few years of guitar-playing left, as they would hurt a lot after playing for even 15 minutes. I’ve now had four PRP treatments on each thumb, and they’re about 75% better overall, with much improved strength and range of motion without pain. I feel like there’s more improvement coming, and I no longer worry about guitar playing at all, and can play for hours at a time. She has also treated my left shoulder, which I separated 20 years ago. It never healed well, and I had to favor it to keep from re-injuring it. Massage and chiropractic treatment would help for days or weeks at a time, but Dr. Storm’s treatments have strengthened it and reduced the pain significantly. I now can go months with no pain or weakness. Sometimes when I overdo it, it needs another treatment, but then does really well. Dr.Storm has also treated my neck, which had been giving me trouble for about 6 years, mostly due to my work posture. Regular craniosacral treatments helped some, but Dr. Storm’s treatment fixed the problem. I would recommend Dr. Storm for any orthopedic problem, as my results have been stellar!”

Reduced pain and a new lease on life
“I consulted Dr. Storm because my knee was inflamed, painful and keeping me from enjoying my usual activities. Dr. Storm used prolotherapy two times in combination with having me identify and eliminate from my diet foods to which I was sensitive. Through the combination of these approaches over the course of approximately 3 months my pain has reduced from 7-8 out of 10 to 0/10. I currently do not have any inflammation. I feel as if I have received a new lease on life!! I was feeling pretty hopeless about my pain situation when I went to see Dr. Storm. Now I feel relieved, optimistic and ready to resume my activities. Dr. Storm is that rare combination of providers who is compassionate while being completely well versed in the science (and art) of healing. I trust her. I recommend her.”
“I reached out to Dr. Storm for an interest in a natural route to skin care treatment. I have been having acne breakouts on my face for years. I have tried multiple different medications, consulted multiple dermatologists, and tried many different topical treatments; none of which had the lasting results I was hoping for. I began to research alternative methods determined to find a solution. I consulted Dr. Storm about interest in the PRP facial, which is when she recommended treatment with PRP cream for acne. I have been using the PRP cream for over a month and have already noticed significant changes. The acne on my face has greatly reduced and my confidence has returned. I feel so grateful to have found a solution that does not have harmful effects on the rest of my body, and a solution that works! Dr. Storm has been compassionate and caring with me as a patient and is extremely helpful and knowledgeable in the field. I highly recommend Dr. Storm and the use of PRP cream.”
“For five years I lived with substantial ankle pain that deeply impacted my ability to run — and even walk — comfortably. I had gone to doctors but had not found any relief. Dr. Storm was able to identify and solve the pain in our very first session. She used a combination of prolotherapy and trigger point. I’m back to running and only very rarely do I feel even a twinge of pain. It feels like a miracle.”

Prolotherapy for Foot Pain
“I started developing osteoarthritis in my big toe when I was 15. Over time it caused a cascade of very painful issues throughout my foot as everything tried to adjust around the missing support. By the time I came to Dr. Storm, I had so much pain walking even in the most comfortable shoes (and a thick pad) that it had really affected my lifestyle. As I am otherwise an active 33 year old, it was really depressing and felt like it was taking over my life. I just got my second session of prolotherapy, and I’m walking without a footpad in cute shoes! I feel my age again, and it’s awesome.”
Consistently pain-free with Prolotherapy
“An accident when I was a teenager left me with a broken collarbone that didn’t heal right and eventually had to be surgically repaired. Even though the surgery went well, my shoulder and scar area have continued to be very painful for over a decade. I’m constantly rolling my shoulders and rubbing the area trying to find relief. In a single session, Dr. Storm used trigger point therapy to release my shoulder muscle and prolotherapy to release my scar. The whole area immediately felt SO much better and has stayed feeling pain-free for over a week.”
Brighter skin with PRP facial treatments
“I was recommended to see Dr. Storm by my previous Naturopathic Doctor in Portland, who recommended PRP facial treatments as a safe and natural alternative to reduce the fine lines and dull skin that seemed to set in overnight when I turned 40. All I could see when I looked at pictures of myself were the lines around my eyes and my smile lines! But I didn’t want to use toxic products on my skin and I still wanted to look like myself! After 3 PRP treatments, my skin is brighter than it’s ever been, and the lines are much less pronounced. I am thrilled!!”

PRP treats break-outs
“I had been seeing Dr. Storm for help with persistent acne for about 3 months. We’d run a food sensitivity test to see if there were foods that were causing the breakouts and balanced my hormones, but I was still having breakouts over my lower cheeks and jaw. After just ONE PRP treatment, the breakouts started clearing, and 5 weeks later they’re about 80% gone. My skin feels softer and more moisturized. I still use the at home cream Dr. Storm gave me and I love it!”

Hair restoration for women
“I did 6 sessions of PRP treatments with Dr. Storm for my hair regeneration. I had hair extensions for years and the extensions really took a toll on my hair. I was getting resigned to a thinning head of hair and short hair for life. Thanks to Dr. Storm, my hair made a complete comeback! The growth has been incredible and the hair is healthy again. Now I go in once or twice annually for a “boost”, but I am in awe of the transformation. My hairdresser can’t believe it and has referred many clients to Dr. Storm. I am gifting my husband some sessions for xmas for his bald spot. We can’t wait to see how he likes his results! Thank you Dr. Storm.”

Facial for Glowing Skin
“My first face treatment with Dr. Storm was awesome. I went in before getting on a plane, and it worked so well that my mother — who had no idea that I’d gone in for a facial — told me that night that I was ‘absolutely glowing’. A week later, I still look like I’ve just spent two weeks on a beach vacation. My skin is glowing and feels deeply moisturized.”

Why try scar therapy?
“When I was 8 years old I had bladder surgery to correct an abnormality that was causing frequent urinary tract infections and occasionally even kidney infections. The surgery was very painful and recovery took a very long time. My mom tells me I used to cry myself to sleep while I was healing. Flash forward into my adult years and I was still having urinary tract infections, about 2 times a month, often after having sex, even using excellent hygiene practices. I was taking antibiotics for each infection, who gave me horrible stomach pains and digestive issues. I started to see a functional medicine practitioner to help with my digestion, and when he found out about my surgery and the scar over my bladder, he recommended I see Dr. Storm. I was extremely nervous about needles, but in just 2 treatments I was no longer having UTIs! It’s 4 months since my last treatment, and this is the first time in my life that I can remember not having pelvic pain or pain after sex. Also, no more antibiotics! This was such a game changer and I cannot recommend scar therapy enough!”

Scar Therapy for Shoulder and Knee Pain
When I went to see Dr. Storm, there was two things that were wrong with my body. I had torn ligament surgery when I was 16 years old, and was never the same after. The biggest thing was a lack of movement in right shoulder, low flexibility. I also had hernia surgery in September and immediately following started having major pain in my left knee. Dr. Storm mentioned that these pains could be from my scars!
The only trepidation I had before my appointment was wondering if it could be for real! My pain and discomfort was so bad I was willing to try anything. I was taking (9) Advil a day to get relief. I’d already tried Advil, Acupuncture, and massage therapy.
I was barely able to walk across the street or even walk my knee hurt so bad, and I’m on my feet all day long in my profession. I can go about 12,000-18,000 steps on my fitbit and feel good at the end of the day. I mean relatively I am 55 years young!
Also, trying to toss a ball with my right shoulder was always painful. (Not any more!)
The results (of the scar therapy) were immediate and I felt great. In fact the most amazing thing was that I haven’t been able to touch the center of my back with my right arm since my surgery 39 years ago. I was immediately able to touch my hand to my back!
I went back in for a second treatment to the knee, which resolved the pain and haven’t had anything else done for the scar on my shoulder.
YOU GOTTA TRY IT, WHAT DO YOU HAVE TO LOSE??
