Chiropractor in Kansas City Helps Chronic Pain Post Surgery with Total Body Modification

I witnessed something truly extraordinary this weekend.  A friend of mine who is also a patient had bilateral BK (below knee) amputations 3 months ago and still had excruciating pain in her tibias (shin bone) where the bone had been cut.  She had been absolutely miserable from the pain she had been experiencing, even with pain medication.  Her pain level was so high that she couldn't even wiggle the stumps or amputation sites, and had a lot of pain climbing into her wheelchair and during transfers in and out of her wheelchair.

Several days before I treated her, I instructed her to drink her water requirement of 1 quart per 50 pounds of body weight per day.  I also told her to eat a lot of meat protein and vegetables, so that her body had the fuel that it needed to heal.

During her TBM treatment I thought of a chronic pain correction I had used on another patient with chronic head pain, and used it on her.  In a matter of 30 seconds, she had almost NO pain in her tibia at all!!!  She immediately started to cry because it was almost unbelievable.  She could touch her tibia with no pain! 

After she cried and we celebrated the amazing results, I said "Are you ready for me to work on the other tibia?"  About a minute later, we were so happy again, as now BOTH tibias weren't hurting!

She had avoided wiggling her legs because of the excruiciating pain before the correction, and after the correction she tried wiggling them.  No pain!  It felt so good to her because before her amputation she liked to wiggle her ankles and twist her feet around. 

She called her mom and sister to share the good news!  She said it was her first day as a Happy Amputee. 

It was a moment I'll always remember. 


Better Health is only a phone call away.
