(WKYC) -- Each week, 17-year-old Andrea Ellison gets a few needles inserted into her skin. She's trying acupuncture to helprecover from a concussion that happened more than two years ago.

Andrea accidentally fell and hit her head on cement. She went from being an "A" student to a struggling "C."

"I still have trouble remembering. I still have a little sensitivity to light and sound which comes with it and I get the headaches really bad. When I was studying, I just couldn't understand what I was doing," Andrea says.

Her doctor referred her to Cleveland Clinic Acupuncturist Jamie Starkey.
