OMG IM WALKING, WITH NO PAIN, THIS IS INSANE!!
This is a great story and testimonial from one of my patients.
21 year old female college soccer player injures her left IT Band on the lateral aspect of her knee. She popped it out or place working out at the school. She is in excruciating pain and can’t walk or move. One of her teammates calls the trainer to come over and she popped it back in. My patient still wasn’t able to walk and needed assistance home.
I get a phone call asking what she can do and she is in tears. I told her to ice it and go get and xray the following day. Take ibuprofen and elevate the leg.
The following day she goes into the orthepedic center and gets and x-ray but it reveals nothing unusual. The have her get some crutches and tell her to rest and the same thing I told her to do. This was at 10 am. She came directly over to see me and get acupuncture.
I examined her right leg. Her pain level was 10/10 and still no weight bearing. I decided to to electrical stimulation at the point of pain and above and below in certain acupuncture points. The electrical stimulation is attached to the needles and retained for 25 minutes. Afterwords I added ear points for pain and told her to retain the needles for the next few days. Additionally, I added Golden Tiger Balm to help with circulation and pain. She left with a 6 of 10 on pain still not bearing any weight.
Two hours later she texted me “OMG IM WALKING, WITH NO PAIN, THIS IS INSANE!!”. She was no longer using crutches and was walking normal. I told her to apply heat and still rest it but do what ever else she wanted.
Pretty awesome and the power of healing.
