Resolution of Painful and Chronic Disc Injury
A male patient, 33 years old and a professional classical ballet dancer, came for treatment in 2011. He suffered from a disc injury incurred in 2010 as a result of which he had not been able to perform for several months. An MRI confirmed a disc tear. As a consequence, he had gone through some traditional physical therapy such as stretching, strength conditioning, acupuncture and massage. It had left him with general chronic back pain when dancing. His range of motion was normal. However, his performance as a dancer was not.

The dancer came for treatment 18 months after the injury had occurred. He was dancing again but highly afraid to reinjure his back. The patient reported to be at about 85% of his normal performance. Dr. Lind applied muscle testing to his lower extremities. All of them were identified as being weak. The dancer showed a high level of compensation for spinal stability. He was diagnosed with several subluxations at C1-3 as well as mid thoracic and at L5/S1. He was afraid he would lose his contract with the San Francisco Ballet Company if they could not rely on him.

Dr. Lind implemented a combined treatment program composed of chiropractic manipulations, tapping of the acupressure points, affirmations, reflex work with the neuro lymphatic system, and neutralizing the stress response brought on by an appendectomy (surgery was done two years ago, it had created chronic nerve patterns which were never resolved because of the trauma of the illness, treatment of the neurological effects of the disease had become necessary). The goal of the treatment was to reintegrate the nerve inputs to allow for better coordination and stabilization of the spine and the pelvis. The treatment program lasted for a total of 6 weeks (once a week with 1h per session).

The outcome has been miraculous. The pain has been completely eliminated. He is approaching his original 100% performance level. The patient is back to his normal duties as a professional dancer with a new level of confidence.
