Grand Strand resident Dawn R. had been experiencing the painful side effects of Peripheral Neuropathy, “my feet and legs were extremely painful and my doctor told me there was nothing they could do. That I would have to take Gabapentin for the rest of my life.”
Peripheral Neuropathy is the pain, discomfort and numbness caused by nerve damage of the peripheral nervous system. Dawn explained that daily tasks like opening doors and using the bathroom were overwhelmingly painful. “How can you live for the next 30 years when you don’t even want to get out of bed to do simple things?”
She 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.” Dawn hadn’t worn socks in five years and was wearing shoes two sizes too big so that nothing would ‘touch’ her feet.
Unfortunately Dawn’s story is all too familiar for the over 3 million people in the U.S. suffering from Peripheral Neuropathy.
If you’re 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.
Fortunately, four months ago Dawn read an article about Dr. Tonya Weber and the work she was doing to treat those suffering from Peripheral Neuropathy without invasive surgeries or medications. Dr. Weber, founder of AIM | Acupuncture & Integrative Medicine in North Myrtle Beach, is using the time tested science of Acupuncture and a technology originally developed by NASA that assists in increasing blood flow and expediting recovery and healing to treat this debilitating disease.
“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,” Dawn enthusiastically describes life after receiving Dr. Weber’s treatments. “I can wear socks and shoes!” Dawn and her sister now operate a successful dog walking business, sometimes covering up to 5 miles a day.
“It’s life altering. As far as I’m concerned Dr. Weber saved my life.”
Dr. Weber has been helping the senior community for over 17 years using 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 North Myrtle Beach.
If you’ve missed too many tee times because of pain or you’ve passed on dancing the shag down on Main Street because you’re afraid of falling, it’s time to call Dr. Weber and the staff at AIM.
It’s time you let your golden years be golden!

Dr. Weber is now accepting new patients but only for a limited time. In an effort to protect her patients, both current and future, she has made the difficult decision to limit the number of patients seen in her clinic. Only 20 new neuropathy patients will be accepted before the end of the year so call (843)273-4467 or visit AIMLiveLife.comAcupuncture And Integrative Medicine now to schedule a consultation.
