Successful Herbal Treatment of Rib Fracture
A male patient, age 60, had come for treatment in 2007. He had been diagnosed with two broken ribs. He suffered from constant and severe pain (10 out of 10). His range of motion had been totally limited. In addition, he had trouble breathing and, therefore, was limited in his functionality. Bending turned out to be another issue for the patient. Normal sleep was impossible.

Dr. Mattia applied a treatment program composed of herbal remedies (patches) and supplements (fish oil, apple cider vinegar, multi-vitamins, B complex, Saw Palmento, COQ10, Glucosamine, Alkadophus).

The results have been positive. The broken ribs completely healed. After the first patch the patient was able to sleep again (reduction of pain within hours). He had very little complaint left but completed the total treatment with six patches to facilitate the healing process. The patient is able to bend again and take a deep breath. He went back to his normal daily activities. Though not being too positive about the treatment with herbal patches at the beginning the patient decided to use them to avoid pain killers. After the success with the first patch his appreciation for herbal patches had been greatly enhanced.
Successful Treatment of Chronic Plantar Fasciitis
A female patient, age 54, had been diagnosed with chronic plantar fasciitis which she had suffered from for more than five years. The pain level was severe (8 out of 10) and its character permanent. Other symptoms included low back pain and hip imbalance. She came for treatment in March 2011.

A combined treatment program (six weeks in total) composed of herbal remedies (patches), chiropractic work as well as supplements (fish oil, apple cider vinegar) had been prescribed.

Upon completing the treatment the pain level had been reduced by 50%. The patient testified a noticeable pain reduction already after the first session. She is pain-free now and able to ride, row, and walk without any discomfort. Her hips are balanced again.
Successful Treatment of Hyper Extension of Tibia
A female patient, age 66, suffered from hyper extension of the left tibia. The pain level had been critical (10 out of 10) and constant. A limit on the range of motion had also been identified. She incurred pain all the time when walking the stairs (up and down). The patient came for treatment in March 2010.

Dr. Mattia prescribed a treatment focused on the left patella tendon and the Bellow knee capsule. It comprised chiropractic work, supplements (glucosamine sulfate, apple cider vinegar, multi-vitamins) as well as herbal remedies (patches). The treatment lasted for a total of two months.

It yielded remarkable results. The patient testified pain relief within twelve hours after the first treatment. She was able to sleep the first time in days. The patient returned to full range of motion. Walking the stairs was no problem anymore. She is back to her normal activities and has been very happy with the outcome ever since.
Successful Treatment of Low Lumber Pain and Spasm
A male patient, age 48, had come for treatment of an old injury in May 2011. He suffered from a low lumber pain and spasm, and had constant and severe pain (10 out of 10). His range of motion had been limited. The patient could not stand straight and was restricted in his functionality.

Dr. Mattia applied a combined treatment program for three months. It was composed of herbal remedies (patches), chiropractic adjustments focused on the left side of the spine (L3/L4), and supplements (e.g. fish oil, multi-vitamins for men).

The results have been remarkable. After the first session (chiropractic adjustment and first patch) the patient had been enabled to stand straight. The pain level and spasm had been notably reduced. Upon completing the treatment program the pain had been completely eliminated. The patient was back to a full range of motion. He practices his regular activities and has no symptoms left. The patient is very happy with the results of the treatment.
