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.
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.
“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.”
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.
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!
