Loyola University Treats Interstitial Cystitis Pain with Acupuncture

loyola-university-buildingLoyola University Health System published an article last month about a woman who found much success using acupuncture to relieve symptoms of Interstitial Cystitis.

Rachel Fellers suffered from a very severe, debilitating form of Endometriosis. Less invasive treatments were unsuccessful so she opted for a hysterectomy. After the surgery she was diagnosed with Interstitial Cystitis– once again having a very severe case that left her completely debilitated. After traditional methods did not give her the relief she needed, she came to Loyola University and decided to try acupuncture.

Acupuncture has been used for more than 2,000 years to treat a variety of conditions. Although it sounds scary putting needles all over your body, the needles are very thin and can help heal your body in a way that western medicine cannot. In Fellers’ case, acupuncture worked so well that she no longer needed to take pain killers and her life has since improved drastically.

My office does not offer acupuncture, but we support any safe treatment that helps you find relief. What works for one person may not work for another, so if conventional treatments aren’t working for you, you may wish to try acupuncture. There is no reason you should suffer from Interstitial Cystitis when there are people out there who can help.
