Successful Healing of Labral Tear (Rotator Cuff)
A female patient, age 42, had been diagnosed with a labral tear in her rotator cuff. She suffered from severe pain (8 out of 10) as well as significant limitation of range of motion. She had been advised to consider surgery and came for treatment in November 2010. Prior to the injury she had been very active (exercise 3-4 times a week).
A combined treatment program of chiropractic adjustments, herbal remedies (one FASTT and two WHITEE patches), ultrasound and myofascial release was prescribed for a total length of four weeks (two sessions per week).
The results turned out to be remarkable. The range of motion was extended to its normal range within four weeks (amazing). The patientís pain was completely eliminated (in certain directions of arm movement there is a pain level of 2 which is in the process of being removed as well). The patient exercises again. She is on her way to being completely cured.
