POLICEMAN aged 40 came for treatment suffering from chronic
headaches. He had been involved in a fight with a suspect
damaging his neck, head and shoulder which resulted in 10
years of daily headaches. These were aggravated by any activity
especially when using the arms. The patient complained of
pain on the right side of his head and had limited neck movements.
By treating him with Connective Tissue Manipulation and Manual
Lymph Drainage the limited neck movements improved and his
headaches ceased. He was able to return to active police duties
after 5 treatments spread over 2 weeks.
Teacher in her 40s had recently hurt her foot playing sport.
A couple of weeks prior to treatment she had hurt the foot
again which she described as feeling like an arrow and was
unable to walk on it at all. She complained of constant awareness
in the instep and foot with pain on the outside of her toes.
Stretching her foot and standing on it or walking made it
much worse. She was more comfortable walking in heels but
better still if she did nothing. She had a very stiff ankle
and foot which was treated with Connective Tissue Manipulation.
After 4 treatments she had full range of movement, no pain
at all and was able to wear flat shoes. She went to a barn
dance and was able to resume all her normal and sports activities.
with a heavy, manual job, in his 50s, fell off a ladder 13
years ago and broke his kneecap. He had twinges of knee pain,
which came and went and a history of knee problems since that
time. One month before treatment his knee became more painful
and he had constant discomfort. Climbing stairs and ladders
and walking the dogs all made his knee worse. The pain lingered
for a couple of minutes after activity and eased if he was
sitting down. He claimed that his knee told him when it was
going to rain! His knee was quite stiff and he could only
bend it to a right angle. Just moving his knee was painful.
He had treatment with Connective Tissue Manipulation to his
leg and exercises for his muscles once he was pain free. After
5 treatments he had full movement and was able to climb ladders
and stairs without pain. His knee bend was better than his
'good' leg and he no longer had warning of impending rain!!
farmer came for treatment for cold feet. She wore 4 pairs
of socks and wellies that were 2 sizes too big yet she still
came in from milking with freezing cold feet. After 3 treatments
Connective Tissue Manipulation
she was able to wear one pair of socks and her own wellies
and despite standing on the concrete for 2 hours first thing
in the morning, had warm feet when she came in for breakfast.
social worker came in one day with back
pain . During the examination she was asked if she had
PROBLEMS WITH CONSTIPATION. No she said she was very regular,
she went to the loo every Thursday morning at 9 o'clock! When
it was suggested Connective Tissue Manipulation could help
her to go daily she was unsure whether she had time to spend
three quarters of an hour on the loo every day but was willing
to see what happened. She had 3 treatments with Connective
Tissue Manipulation over a 10-day period and her back pain
went. Also she was amazed to be able to say that she was going
to the loo every day and only spending a few minutes there
each time - something she had never experienced before, even
as a child. Her energy and joie de vivre also improved immensely.

athletic 14-year-old schoolgirl, who played discuss, shot
and javelin to county level, came with a 2-month history of
constant, severe pain on the front of her knee which disturbed
her sleep. The pain was worse walking uphill, climbing stairs
and going for long walks. Her knee was very stiff and occasionally
gave way causing her to give up athletics. A CHONDROMALACIA
PATELLA was diagnosed. She had 5 treatments with
Tissue Manipulation over 7 days. After the 2nd treatment
the pain was no longer constant and her movement was almost
normal. After the 3rd treatment she competed in county athletics
without pain. After 4th treatment she had full range of movement
and no pain and learnt exercises to do at home to strengthen
the muscles. She had had no recurrence of the problem a year
youngest patient treated was only a week old!! The poor little
mite couldn't sleep and was ratty the whole time he was awake.
He lay on his mother's lap with colicky pains and was a generally
irritable little chap. He was treated with
Tissue Manipulation which even on a child of that age
reduces the connective tissue tension and we sorted out his
colic problems. It was lovely to watch him become calmer
MOTHER lifted a 2-year-old child up off the floor and felt
a sudden pain in her lower back. She came for treatment the
following day complaining of constant pain which increased
with all movements. She was very stiff and in some distress.
She had treatment with
Tissue Manipulation and a simple exercise to do at home.
Her pain eased during the first visit and after 3 treatments
she had full range of movement and was pain free and discharged.
patient with a painful bunion was referred by an orthopaedic
consultant. This turned out to be a classic case of referred
pain. No movement of the foot affected the pain but moving
his back affected the bunion pain. Treatment with
Tissue Manipulation and the MacKenzie
Exercise Regime reduced the pain in his bunion.
