“I Have Hope Again”

Local resident, Carl P., had been experiencing the painful effects of Peripheral Neuropathy; “My feet and legs were extremely painful and my doctor told me there was nothing they could do, and that I would have to take Gabapentin for the rest of my life.” Then he went to see acupuncturist, Dr. Ashley Adams.

Peripheral Neuropathy is the pain, discomfort and numbness caused by nerve damage of the peripheral nervous system. Carl explained that daily tasks like opening doors and using the bathroom were overwhelmingly painful. “How can you live for the next 20 years when you don’t even want to get out of bed to do simple things?”

He was experiencing the burning, numbness, tingling and sharp pains that those suffering with neuropathy often describe. “The way that I would describe it, it’s equivalent to walking on glass.” Carl hadn’t worn socks in five years and was wearing shoes two sizes too big so that nothing would ‘touch’ his feet.

Unfortunately Carl’s story is all too familiar for the over 3 million people in the U.S. suffering from Peripheral Neuropathy.

If you are unfortunate enough to be facing the same disheartening prognosis, you’re not sleeping at night because of the burning in your feet, you have difficulty walking, shopping or doing any activity for more than 30 minutes because of the pain.

You’re struggling with balance and living in fear that you might fall. Your doctor told you to “just live with the pain” and you’re taking medications that aren’t working or have uncomfortable side effects. 

If this is you, know that there are options.

Fortunately, three months ago, Carl read an article about DelMarVa Acupuncture and the work being done to treat those suffering from Peripheral Neuropathy without invasive surgeries or medications. He can now share how significantly his life has been changed!

“Now when I go to bed at night I don’t have those shooting pains. I don’t have that burning sensation. I don’t have pain coming up my legs,” Carl enthusiastically describes life after receiving treatments. “I can comfortably wear socks and shoes and I can enjoy golfing again!”


Dr. Ashley Adams, founder of DelMarVa Acupuncture & Wellness Center, is using the time tested science of Acupuncture, combined with technology originally developed by NASA that assists in increasing blood flow and expediting recovery and healing, to treat this debilitating disease.

DelMarVa Acupuncture uses the most cutting edge and innovative integrative medicine. Specializing in chronic pain cases, specifically those that have been deemed “hopeless” or “untreatable,” she consistently generates unparalleled results. What was once a missing link in senior healthcare is now easily accessible to the residents of Milford and surrounding areas.

If you’ve missed too many tee times because of pain, or you’ve passed on dancing along to songs of your youth because you’re afraid of falling, it’s time to give yourself a new opportunity!


“When my husband and I walked into Delmarva Acupuncture office for the initial visit we were met by super friendly helpful staff and and were diagnosed by a most compassionate and empathetic healer, Dr. Ashley Adams. In 4 weeks my husband’s neuropathy was so much better, he was able to walk on the beach for the first time in over 10 years! And Dr. Adams and her entire staff were there to walk with my husband on that beach walk! As we continue treatment, we cannot say enough complimentary words about Dr. Adams and her very competent staff. Our only regret is that we wish we would have found her sooner. Here’s to living pain free again and we have Dr. Ashley Adams to thank!” ~B.H.

“I went to Dr. Adams with issues with my feet, which had previously been misdiagnosed, and within just a few weeks of treatments I’ve had a huge difference in my balance and regular walking! Highly recommend Dr. Adams and her team!” ~ T.L. 

It’s time to let your golden years, BE GOLDEN
