Eliminate pain by using creams instead of medication
Marie Gentry was diagnosed with osteoporosis, neuropathy, scoliosis and was living a life full of pain. Until, she read a story and met doctor Craig Morton and his creation of AcuPlus.
Marie Gentry, patient, "My husband had to take care of me and take me to all the appointments and everything after 8 1/2 months and I got on the ointments -- I got in that car and I've been driving since."
Now with torn rotator cuffs, and a continuation of her other painful diagnoses, gentry rarely takes even the smallest medication for the pain.
"I put it on my shoulders in the back I put it on all over from my knees down to my feet. I use that because it helps with the neuropathy."
Doctor Craig Morton created AcuPlus as a way to help patients who can't take regular pain medication.
Doctor Craig Morton, Physiatrist, "So many of my patients had limitations to taking medication -- whether it was trying to fight opioid addiction -- maybe they had side effects that were impacting their kidneys, liver or stomach. and topical pain creams had helped a variety of my patients over the years -- some of them had limitations and I felt like because I was in a position to treat people all day long, I could see what was working and wasn't working."
As patients tried different creams, Doctor Morton found the perfect mixture.
"So several of our ingredients have both pain relieving properties and anti-inflammatory properties so in addition to that are ingredients have been known to decrease nerve pain and even being suggested as a topical muscle relaxers."
Now, FDA approved, Doctor Morton is watching his patients flourish with this cream.
"It's really helping my patients improve their function. They're able to do more and it's really helping decrease pain and decrease the need for opioids and other oral pain medicine."
For Gentry, it's been life-changing.
Marie Gentry, patient, "I don't go anywhere without putting my AcuPlus on. that's the first thing in the morning, the last thing at night and in between in the daytime."
