Successful Healing of Elbow Pain
A male patient in his late 50ís suffered from light lateral elbow pain (5-7 out of 10). He could not play tennis anymore and went to a general practitioner who prescribed pain killers. Unfortunately, the pain was not removed beyond the temporary relief from the drug. Another practitioner provided chiropractic treatment for a number of months. Unfortunately, the desired results could not be achieved.
Dr. Guyer applied a treatment program composed of chiropractic adjustments to the elbow as well as ultrasound and physical exercise for a total of 5 sessions over a couple of months.
After the first session the pain had been completely removed. The follow-up treatments stabilized it. The results have been sustained ever since. The patient has been very happy and plays tennis again.
Successful Treatment of Rib Subluxation
A female patient in her late 40ís suffered from severe rib problems caused by subluxation. Whenever the body was unfavorably positioned the rib would go out of place. Sharp pain was the result (6-9 out of 10). It deflected into the shoulder and neck as well as the upper back. A previous practitioner could not treat this condition. Therefore, the patient came for treatment in 2001.

Dr. Guyer applied a combined treatment program composed of ice (against the swelling of the rib joints) and heat (against muscle spasm in the back), rib adjustment, physical exercise (build up muscle strength) and ultrasound. The patient started with 2-3 treatment sessions per week and continued with preventative treatment when needed.
The outcome of the treatment has been accordingly ever since. The rib pain wass eliminated after the first session. Related muscle soreness disappeared after 2-3 days. The results have been sustained for at least several months and longer. The patient needs to do maintenance when an unfavorable position of the body has moved the rib out of location.
