Successful Healing of Severe Horseback Riding Accident
A female patient suffered from a severe horseback riding accident which had occurred at the age of 15. The horse fell into a jump. When it attempted to get up one foot of the patient was caught in the stirrup. The patient was dragged a few feet until her face was slammed into a post. A subsequent diagnosis did not identify any further injury.

Shortly after the patient started to run three times a week. After a couple of weeks the patient started to experience sharp shooting pain in her left side-ribcage. The pain became worse over time. Therefore, the patient concluded that there had to be something fundamentally wrong.

She approached several MDs for further investigation of the symptoms but none of them could identify the problem. Blood tests as well as CTs had been taken several times. No explanations for the problem were found. Several anti-inflammatory drugs had been prescribed without success. Worst of all, insurances did not cover the expenses for all the measures ordered by the MDs (e.g. $1,400 per CT and $200 per visit).

Over time the pain had become really bad. The patient could not run, workout, or ride horses. In addition, sleeping had become difficult. Many times the patient woke up during the night due to the permanent pain.

Given the bad condition of the patient, a chiropractic treatment followed next. The patient saw two chiropractors for the following two years. Both practitioners charged enormous fees without any major result.

The first chiropractor diagnosed major misalignments (based on x-rays) and suggested one whole year for treatment. The patient had three treatments a week for the first four months, then two sessions a week for another four months, and finally one session a week for the remaining two months. The total treatment of about 100 adjustments and $50 per session amounted to $5,000. Her mom settled the cost with a one time upfront payment of $1,900. The chiropractor used a small device called “activator” to correct the misalignments.
Given the lack of success achieved by the first chiropractor the patient started a treatment with another one. He also took x-rays base on which he suggested manual adjustments rather than using the “activator” device. He sold one year of treatment for $1,800 (about 100 sessions). Many areas of the patient’s neck and back were manually adjusted. Unfortunately, the patient had become worse rather than better after completing the annual treatment program.

Given the miserable condition of the patient, a friend advised to see Dr. Lubecki. He explained to the patient that once the skull and atlas were adjusted the entire spine would straighten out and all misalignments would correct themselves immediately. The results confirmed his diagnosis. After Dr. Lubecki’s adjustment the pain stopped right away (2008). The patient had been free of pain for the first time in years. The results have sustained ever since. The patient is riding again and enjoys life as before the accident.
Successful Pain Elimination from Compression Fracture Suffered for 12 Years
A patient had been diagnosed with a compression fracture of the lower back (L5) in 1982 caused by an industrial accident. He had been told for nine months that there was no observable problem. After nine months the patient decided to approach a chiropractor who took an X-ray in a standing position. It showed that the fracture had partially healed by then. Based on extensive treatment, the chiropractor was able to restore the majority of the patient’s motor functions. Afterwards, the patient was seen by several MDs including one of the finest neurosurgeons in the Pacific Northwest. Based on his review, he determined that there were three distinct areas where surgery could be performed. However, due to the extensive damage, the risk implied would have been substantial. Therefore, he was advised not to go for surgery and rather live a very sedentary life. He also indicated that the patient could become a paraplegic at any point in time.

Given the diagnosis and advice the patient started a life in pain and inactivity which would last for about twelve years. He was in chronic pain with frequent bouts of acute pain attacks which would cause the patient to be in bed for weeks at a time. In addition, MDs recommended the usage of narcotic painkillers as well as a fit with a TENS unit to manage the worst of the symptoms.

After twelve years of suffering the patient came to Dr. Lubecki who prescribed two atlas adjustments and a mineral maintenance program. The results compared to a miracle. After two sessions the patient turned out to be free of pain. He is now able to practice martial arts and enjoying his life. Given that the traditional medical community had judged the patient’s case as hopeless this represents an amazing outcome.
