Dr. Lind prescribed a combined treatment of herbal patches (6 patches for two weeks), massage (after the patches had done their work) and adjustments (once a week for 4-5 weeks) in 2010. The patient was back on the dance floor by mid January 2011.
In March of 2011 she suffered from another injury (right foot). Two MRIs (ankle and foot) were taken. A soft tissue injury was diagnosed (no fracture). A two months resting period between March and May was prescribed (right foot was rested in a boot). In addition, three FASTT patches were applied. The patches were instrumental in a speedy recovery.
The patient has been back taking full-time dancing classes since June 2011. She is preparing her assignment at the Oregon Ballet Theater starting in September 2011.
