Joanne was admitted into the hospital after her sciatic pain was so severe that she was unable to walk. After being release from the hospital, she had to rely on a wheelchair or a walker in order to move around. She was referred to Dr. Tong by a friend at her bible class and after one treatment, the pain had diminished so greatly that she did not need to use a walker and only used a cane. After the second treatment, she did not even need to use the cane anymore because her sciatic had greatly improved. Joanne also gets treated for her COPD and carpal tunnel and has experienced decrease in symptoms.
