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.
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 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!
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‘.
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!
