"I could barely speak . . . tears ran down my cheeks. . . "my headaches are gone!" I said to my fiancee. She hugged me and I turned to Dr. Waind who had just placed surgical staples in my ears. "Thank you . . . I can't believe my headache is gone!"
My name is Bob. I am 50 years old and have suffered with migraine headaches most of my life. The past couple of years they have become almost daily. The excruciating pounding in my head was driving me crazy! My life was becoming smaller and smaller . . . more things I could not do.
I heard about ear stapling for possible migraine relief months ago, but I was very skeptical. After all, I had spent numerous hours going to doctors and hundreds trying medication after medication to no avail. Certainly ear stapling must be some other gimmick to waste money on. A friend of mine convinced me to give the ear stapling a try. I was desperate . . . nothing else had worked. No one was more surprised than I was that those tiny staples could actually give me relief! I don't understand acupuncture or pressure points, but all I know is that my headaches are less frequent, less severe and I don't have the bad side effects of all those expensive medications. The staples are working for me and I tell everyone I know. After all, if you are miserable as I was, what have you got to lose?!"

"I would like to share my story about a procedure offered by Waind Chiropractic. I was a patient with major migraines, months of ER visits, shots for pain, test after test and around $100,000.00 of medical bills. I had heard about a procedure called AcuStaple that requires staples to be placed in your ears, with those in place migraines are to be controlled. I called and asked questions and made my appointment with Waind Chiropractic in February 2009. After having the staples placed within 1 week my migraine had gone. It is recommended that the staples be replaced every 6 months. I am on my 4th replacement . . . NO medication and NO migraine!! I have developed a great relationship with the staff at Waind Chiropractic. I would recommend the ear staples for anyone who suffers from migraines. I send a big Thank You to Michael Waind and staff for getting me through a difficult time in my life."

"Over five years ago, after unsuccessful results with pain pills, narcotics, spinal and joint injections, the arthritic pain in my lower spine and pelvis was intolerable. When I tried acupuncture I noticed relief immediately and began going off Oxycotin. The good results didn't last very long at first, so I had treatments three times a week for about a year, then twice a week, once a week, every two weeks, and finally monthly for maintenance. My pain level is a very manageable one to two on the pain scale.
If something happens to aggravate the pain hot spots, I can usually work it out myself. If not, I go for a few times more frequently and then back to maintenance. This has changed my life.
Dr. Waind is knowledgeable in his practice and has worked with me to find the right formula for treatment. I am so glad that I stayed with it long enough to get these good results."

"I had the Acu-Staple done at Waind Chiropractic & Acupuncture in hopes of weight loss. The first thing I noticed, I was able to stop eating. I had my 'stop button' back. I felt full for the first time in a long time. I started losing weight slowly. I have dropped from 218 to 187 pounds. I have a long way to go, but it has helped tremendously. I wore size 16 pants and now I wear size 12. I have arthritis and getting the weight off has helped my knees and legs so much. The staple has been a miracle for me. What do I eat? Yogurt, fruit, lean beef, veggies and thin soups. I recommend you give this a try, you will be happy you did!"

"After seeing 3 different doctors for poor circulation in my feet, which caused them to turn blue, I knew it was time to see Dr. Waind. After 2 chiropractic treatments my feet got almost perfect. They were back to their normal color. I now see Dr. Waind first before I see any other doctor. Thank you Dr. Waind!!"

"Thank you so much for working with us on the insurance company. You guys are wonderful people to work with. Thank you very much!"
That day was different. His assistant asked me if I was feeling alright, she said I looked like I was in pain. Yes, I was, most days, this is what I felt like. Dr. Waind came in and asked me a few questions as well. Then he stapled my left ear. He showed his assistant the area the staple should go. He asked if I was ok, then moved to the right ear. He shook my hand and was very kind and told me if I had ANY ISSUES to call right away. Then he walked out and his assistant showed me how to clean my staples and such. After about 5 minutes she asked me if I was ok. She said I had color in my face. I was smiling.... I was without a headache. I was without a headache for the first time in 26 years. Now, I know it may not have that effect as quickly as it did for me, but all I can say is THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU! I don't think I have stopped smiling and I tell EVERYONE about them!
So, to those that are worried that they may hurt, don't be. If you have suffered through a migraine, these are a piece of cake! I must say I have also lost a few pounds....an added bonus!"
