am a 43 year old right-handed machinist, injured in August 2000.
My arm was twisted by a honing machine and grabbed the part I
was working on, threw me to the air. When I landed on my feet,
I had extreme pain in my wrist, elbow and shoulder. I continued
working until January, 2001 and then had to stop because of the
pain. On and off, I treated by chiropractor and Physical Therapy
with some relieved but when I worked again, my elbow became severe,
I even had the difficulty picking up a pencil. then I have to
operate by a surgeon to remove damaged tissue, move a tendon.
I was casted for two weeks and then took physical therapy again
but it is not helping. My range of motion decreased with less
strength of adduction. I also had numbness and tingling in my
right three fingers.
After the fourth treatment by Dr. Tao, I began to experience pain
relief, no numbness and not need take any medication. My grip
force of my hand and arm also getting better."
am a 51 year old former medical secretary. I am being treated
for my pain secondary to a left distal acromial fracture sustained
while at work. I was reaching for a chair and the chair rolled
and struck my outstretched hand, causing the fracture of the left
acromion. Over the years I tried numerous medications, however,
most of these could only be taken transiently because of side
effects. An MRI shows I have a full thickness defect involving
supraspinatus tendon and a partial thickness tear of the infraspinatus
tendon and left shoulder confirmed the full thickness rotator
cuff tear. I received surgery on Feb 14, 2000 at Sacred Heart
Hospital. Unfortunately, my shoulder pain even gets better like
50% from constant pain to intermediate pain, however, some additional
radiates up to the base of my neck and down to my elbow with weakness
when I used my hand for my work. My course has been difficult
because of failure to respond to physical therapy, or even worsening.
I also had intolerance to nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs
with severe GI symptoms after only two to three days, or no relief
at all. Due to I have M.S. for years and unacceptable for nerve
blocks due to arthritic damage in my spine.
had been treated by Dr. Tao through my orthopedic Doctor's referral
from a three times a week for a couple months now. I am glad to
say the acupuncture treatment with Chinese herbal patch/ointment
is very effective. I could tolerate more of my pain and work longer
even sometimes without taken any of my medication. I hope people
like my condition could try this alternative medicine for it is
very helpful and not need to worry about any further surgery and
the side effect of medication."
am a 59 year old former farmer. In the early 1970's , I fell
off a ladder and injured a disc. An MRI shows a narrowing of the
canal and spinal stenosis, involving the L4 to L5 and L5 to S1.
I then developed a chronic back pain since after and my condition
of the constant toothache pain vanished since after the second
treatment. This type of relieve not temporary pain relieve from
chiropractor doing, almost completely and deep relieved from the
acupuncture treatment. In the meawhile, I experienced a GI distress
for years when I eat fruits like tomato, grapes or spicy food,
orange juice, lemonadewtc. After I taking the patent's Chinese
herbal medicine prescribed by Dr. Tao, I am no longer have any
difficulty with my stomach acid regurgigation."
