Pia first came to us in May 2014 severe low back pain, depression, bowel obstruction, and digestive problems. After one NBE treatment, her pain went away and she experienced a decrease in digestive problems. She was feeling more energized and no longer feeling depressed.
She was later convinced by her physician that surgery would relieve her of all pain. He referred her to an orthopedic surgeon, who also convinced her to have an SI joint bone implant. After having that surgery in Aug 2014, her pain got worse. She was in the hospital for a month and a nursing home for 6 months. She was constantly being prescribed heavy medication to treat the pain, even after she told them it causes her constipation.
Pia came back to Dr. Tong 3 months after surgery for NBE treatments. The swelling on her incision has gone away and her pain has greatly been reduced.
