I decided to give acupuncture a try after a referral from Natural Rewards in Pearland. When I first came to see Dan, I was wanting to get off of my pain medications that I had been prescribed for the deep bone pain I was experiencing from severe osteoporosis. I was diagnosed at the age of 39, I am now 56. Since 1997 I have been put on several medications for the osteoporosis itself, including Fosamax, Boniva and Reclast, all of which caused me many side effects. While on these medications my bones continued to get worse.
