Successful Resolution of Medial Knee Pain
A 43-year old woman (teacher from Russia) came for treatment in 2006. She had been a very active person over many years. The MD had told her about the need for knee surgery (particularly the right knee). The patient suffered excessive pronation of both feet and particular problems on her right side (test of mechanical structure of both feet and legs). She suffered from pain when walking (5 out of 10) and used a walking stick.
Dr. Vail applied a combined treatment program composed of chiropractic work, herbal remedies, as well as orthotics including a knee brace (prior to receiving the orthotics feet were casted and wrapped temporarily). A special technique performed by two people was used to fraction out and untangle muscles and bones. The orthotics played a key role to achieve overall success of treatment. The total length of the program lasted about 6 months including the follow-up care for the patient. It started with three visits for the first two weeks, continued with two sessions per week after the orthotics had been applied for another two weeks, and then transitioned to one visit per week for the remaining time of the program.
Upon completion of the program the patientís pain had been completely eliminated. She continues to wear the orthotics to maintain her quality of health. The results have been sustained ever since. She has never used a walking stick again. The surgery was not needed anymore. The patient is very happy with the outcome. She referred a number of new patients coming for treatment all the way from Russia.
Successful Resolution of Shingles (Herpes Zoster)
A female patient in her late 60ís came for treatment in spring 2011. She had suffered from shingles for about 5 years. The patient reported substantial pain (6-7 out of 10) in her right shoulder and breast (went down to her right arm). The symptoms represented a re-occurring case after a severe occurrence 5 years ago. The MD had prescribed some drugs which had not generated relief. The patient showed skin breakouts produced along the nerve route. The disease is caused by the same virus which produces chicken pocs. It is most common after the age of 50.
A combined treatment program composed of frequency specific micro current as well as natural herbs, homeopathic remedies and supplements (mainly vitamins) was prescribed for a total of 3 weeks (3 sessions during first week, 2 sessions along the second week and once a week to conclude). The specific micro current device was used to tune in to the critical pair of frequencies (frequency of tissue as well as virus) driving the symptoms. The response time of the patient depends on the age as well as the strength of the immune system.
The outcome was great. The patient reported pain relief from 6-7 down to 3-4 after the first treatment (over night). After the second session the pain level had dropped to 1. Upon completing the program, the pain had been completely removed and the additional symptoms (e.g. skin) had disappeared. The results have been sustained ever since.
Successful Resolution of TMJ Disorder
A female patient in her mid 50ís came for treatment in 2011. She complained about severe symptoms related to TMJ. More specifically, she reported clicking and snapping in her jaws as well as popping in the ears and headaches. The patient suffered from severe pain (8-9 out of 10) as well as irritability and insomnia (lack of sleep) due to the pain.

A combined treatment program composed of massage (e.g. contraction technique to relax jaw muscles) as well as homeopathic and herbal remedies was applied for a total of one week (three sessions every other day). In addition, a night guard was prescribed. At this point, preventative maintenance is implemented.
The results of the treatment have been very promising. The patient experienced complete pain relief. She continues to wear her splint to maintain the good health condition. The results have been sustained ever since. She is very happy.
