Broken Ankle, Stress, Anger, Fatigue, Red/Puffy Eyes
Marty (originally from Louisville, Kentucky) is a speech developer who had a severe fall which left her with two swollen ankles. Her ankles were so swollen that it took two weeks for her doctors to discover that her right ankle was broken. She now has 6 pins in her right ankle. She was in a great deal of pain and she was stressed out and angry. Everything would bother her especially when she was driving. She remembers driving to Dr. Tong’s office for her first treatment feeling extreme road rage. But after the treatment, she felt calm and relaxed. Her ankle pain has also subsided considerably. She came in for a treatment today exhausted with red puffy eyes because she had been moving for the past 4 days. When Dr. Tong asked her to be a guest on the show, she was not sure if she had enough energy to talk. After the treatment, she felt re-energized, her eyes were “as clear as bells,” and the redness and puffiness disappeared.
Irregular Menstruation, Menstrual Cramps, PMS, Neck Pain, Shoulder Pain, Hip Pain, Arthritis, Mood Swings
Laura (see # 188 2-5-05, from Los Angeles) works for a film production company. Before she came to see Dr. Tong, she was having irregular periods (every two weeks), severe cramps, and PMS. For four months she was getting her period every other week with these severe symptoms. Her gynecologist immediately put her on the pill which did nothing to regulate her period or help her cramps. She was in so much pain that she was prescribed Darvocet, a strong pain killer. She even considered surgical forms of treatment, such as endometrial ablation. Her husband, whose neck pain was successfully treated by Dr. Tong suggested she try Dr. Tong’s treatment first. His neck would make constant clicking sounds and the pain was so severe that he would need to lie down with a heating pad and vibrating pad to ease the pain. He was miserable and cranky. After his first treatment with Dr. Tong, he felt so much better. Now his neck pain is virtually gone and he comes once a month for tune up treatments. With Dr. Tong’s treatment, Laura’s cramps were significantly improved and her periods have been regulated now for 6 months. Dr. Tong’s treatments also helped the arthritis in her fingers, neck and shoulder pain, hip pain, and her moodiness!
