Case report 1-chronic lower back pain...
This patient for the first time in about 15 years was able to work bent over in their garden, without back pain. They were appreciative of my efforts as they had treatment elsewhere without success.
Case report 2-chronic upper to lower back pain...
This patient had a sore lower back (left side) and sore ribs (right side) for approximately 10 to 12 years.
Over this period of twelve years they sought assistance for these problems from many Chiropractors (7).
Had sought medical advice and treatment from some of the
country's most eminent physicians and sports medicine consultants.
To date, none have provided the pain relief they experienced from our treatment services.
Case report 3-Referred pain, pain that is coming from somwhere else?
This patient expressed their gratitude for the course of treatment provided by me since their initial visit on 14 January, 2002. They were free of pain and restored a lifestyle I thought to be finished.
They visited me after two years of fruitless tests by various doctors and specialists to whom they had been sent. These included X-rays, Scans, U1tra-sounds, MRI's, all to no avail. A physiotherapist did some relief but the problem pain always returned.
I diagnosed their pain to emanate from the RT12/L1 nerve system tracking to the R inguinal area. The appropriate treatment gave immediate relief spasmodic at first then complete relief by April 17. They now can walk and garden again with comfort as well as play weekly golf and tennis.
