Successful Healing of Meniscal Knee Injury
A 50 year old woman approached Dr. Duvé on June 7th 2011 with knee problems. She suffered from severe pain (8 out of 10) in her right knee originated by a meniscus tear and a medial displacement (from step aerobics). She was unable to flex her knee without extreme pain. It could not be straightened without popping. She had difficulties in walking. The knee did not support her body weight. She was diagnosed with a right medial meniscus protrusion and edema.

Dr. Duvé started a combined treatment program composed of herbal patches (six patches), chiropractic adjustments (activator adjustments to the medial meniscus and full spinal adjustments) as well as knee taping with kinesis tape. The practitioner also casted for orthotics, i.e. the patient’s feet were scanned, orthotics have been produced for her shoes and as a result the collapsed probation have been supported to protect the knee from further injury (foot biomechanics rotate the knee inwards which puts stress on the meniscus potentially causing injury). The treatment is still in progress.

After two days only (June 9) significant improvements could be observed. The swelling had been substantially reduced and the flexion had been greatly enhanced. The complete bending of the knee had become possible again. The results are promising.
