Left Sciatic Pain, Diabetes, Hypertension, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Dolores (from Apple Valley, CA) This retired graphics designer suffered from sciatic pain for the last 5 years. Her pain was so intolerable that the only comfortable position for her was to lay flat on the floor. Sitting in a car would cause her excruciating pain. Dolores has also been diabetic for 15 years and has hypertension. Recently, she was diagnosed with carpal tunnel syndrome in her right hand. She has tried cortisone shots and physical therapy for her pain which did nothing to help her. She has been on medication for her high blood pressure and was up to 600mg of Ibuprofen per day for her sciatica. She heard Dr. Tong on the radio and decided to try his treatment. After 4 treatments, the pain in her sciatic is much improved to the point that she can now drive herself, sit without pain, and exercise. She went off her high blood pressure medication and her blood pressure dropped from 190/90 to 168/82. Overall she has improved a great deal.
