What's the alternative?
When Amanda Malvick, of Lake Park, got into a car accident in 1999, she began suffering from back, neck and shoulder pain.
Her fibromyalgia didn't help either, and she began taking multiple narcotics and muscle relaxants.
"I was on medication for a year and a half and gradually got off," she said.
Malvick decided to go the alternative medical route, to be more natural. As a nurse, she understands the side effects drugs can have on a person's body.
