Resolution of Severe Post Hip Surgery Conditions
A 68-year old patient, female, came for treatment in April 2010. She had been diagnosed with severe hip issues several years ago. The strength of the conditions fluctuated over the years. Chiropractic adjustments had been applied with any sign of improvement. Finally, due to a lot of pain a hip replacement was implemented in October 2009. The surgery improved the patients condition. However, she showed plenty of post surgery swelling at the lower extremities all the way down to the foot. Apparently, an edema had been created from the surgery.

Given the patients post-surgery condition she appeared comparatively weak (e.g. used canes for support of her walking when coming to an appointment). Her pain level was identified with 6 out of 10. She still suffered from back pain. Her hip was tender. She had been prescribed with narcotic pain medication (to be taken every 6 hours). She apparently had some blockage of the lymphatic circulation.

Dr. Lind applied a combined treatment program composed of chiropractic work, herbal, myofascial release (5 massages over two weeks) and some B vitamins. The herbal patches were applied in 3 series (3 patches per series, 2 days on and 1 day off). They were positioned on the lumbosacral area and her lower leg (calf muscle).

The results of the treatment were truly promising. By the beginning of June 2011, the patient was able to comfortably walk and work again part-time. Her pain level had been reduced to about 4 (right trend given the chronicity of the condition). She still showed swelling but it had improved significantly. Overall, the symptoms improved significantly (by about 60%). Her lymphatic problem has been solved which makes the patient very happy.
