If you’re in my age bracket – past 50 – you’ve more than likely suffered from a bad back at one time or other. My condition is not chronic, but it can be pretty debilitating at times.
Successful treatments vary from person to person, but I thought I’d let you know what has worked fairly well for me.
First of all, there are two over-the-counter medications I take. One is Glucosamine Chondroitin and the other is Fish Oil, 1000 milligrams. I take two pills of each every day and double the dosage whenever the pain arrives, which fortunately is not too often these days.
I used to regularly go to a chiropractor. He was the brother-in-law of a friend and was very good. But his office was in Diamond Bar, which is a half-hour drive.
Since I’ve been taking the medication I mentioned above, which I buy at CVS, I don’t need chiropractic service as often. But now I have a chiropractor who is geographically desirable. His name is Dr. Charles Feng. He has two offices, one in Lakewood and one inside Arcadia Fitness Sports Club at 56 E. Duarte Road in Arcadia.
Charles is a pleasant young man who enjoys talking UCLA sports, among other topics. Since I am a member of the Arcadia Fitness gym and work out there regularly, it is extremely convenient to get a quick treatment. Charles fixed me up so well the other day, I got to thinking that other Arcadia residents should know about him.
Something else to keep in mind is that you can get a free gym membership at Arcadia Fitness if you are on Medicare and have a supplemental insurance plan that offers the Silver Sneakers Health Program.
But you don’t have to be a member of Arcadia Fitness to get a treatment from Charles. Just walk in and ask to be directed to the All Pro Health Center. Or call 626 447-8888 for an appointment. If you are in pain and in need of chiropractic treatment, you’ll be glad you did.
