Functional Restoration from Spinal Degeneration
A 60 year old female patient was diagnosed with Lombard scoliosis (L4/L5), disc degeneration and osteoarthritis in November 2010. The patient suffered from severe pain in her lower back and hip (pain level: 6-7 out of 10). The pain seemed to be constant and the back showed a high amount of stiffness. The neuromuscular system appeared to be in the process of shutting down.
Dr. Lind prescribed a combined treatment program composed of adjustments, physical therapy (to induce blood supply to the critical region), herbal remedies, and home exercise. The patient has completed 16 sessions between November 2010 and June 2011. Long-term maintenance will be necessary because of the severe level of degeneration. The goal of the comprehensive treatment program is to make the patient function without pain and ensure a quality lifestyle. Part of the treatment focuses on metabolic treatment to eliminate her back inflammation.
The results have been promising so far. The patientís pain level has been reduced to 3 out of 10 (from 6-7). Her back has been stabilized. The patient shows slow but steady improvement. The trend is right and the achieved results have always sustained.
Resolution of Severe Post Hip Surgery Conditions
A 68-year old patient, female, came for treatment in April 2010. She had been diagnosed with severe hip issues several years ago. The strength of the conditions fluctuated over the years. Chiropractic adjustments had been applied with any sign of improvement. Finally, due to a lot of pain a hip replacement was implemented in October 2009. The surgery improved the patientís condition. However, she showed plenty of post surgery swelling at the lower extremities all the way down to the foot. Apparently, an edema had been created from the surgery.

Given the patientís post-surgery condition she appeared comparatively weak (e.g. used canes for support of her walking when coming to an appointment). Her pain level was identified with 6 out of 10. She still suffered from back pain. Her hip was tender. She had been prescribed with narcotic pain medication (to be taken every 6 hours). She apparently had some blockage of the lymphatic circulation.
Dr. Lind applied a combined treatment program composed of chiropractic work, herbal , myofascial release (5 massages over two weeks) and some B vitamins. The herbal patches were applied in 3 series (3 patches per series, 2 days on and 1 day off). They were positioned on the lumbosacral area and her lower leg (calf muscle).
The results of the treatment were truly promising. By the beginning of June 2011, the patient was able to comfortably walk and work again part-time. Her pain level had been reduced to about 4 (right trend given the chronicity of the condition). She still showed swelling but it had improved significantly. Overall, the symptoms improved significantly (by about 60%). Her lymphatic problem has been solved which makes the patient very happy.
