It was just a simple thing…until it wasn’t.
Meet Dr. Campana, a practising chiropractor who has developed innovative ways to treat his patients based on his vast clinical experience. Here’s his story:
“A young girl hopped into my office, leaning on her mom’s arm. She could not straighten her left knee. She told me, very solemnly, ‘I twisted my ankle and hurt my knee.’ No one in manual therapy likes treating these cases; it involves painful attempts to free a locked joint. I got around that by using pain-free techniques such as diathermy, ultrasound, infrared heat, and massage above the knee.
On the third day of treating without results, she looked at me and said, ‘I told you, I twisted my ankle and hurt my knee.’ On the fifth day, she said the same. This time I heard her and opened my mind. She was face down on the table and I elevated her foot till the knee was at a painless right angle. Then I held her heel in my left hand and her foot in the right and quickly moved/adjusted them in opposite directions. She said, ‘Thanks!’ arose from the table with a totally freed painless knee. I taught this simple technique to all my fellow chiropractors, and it has never failed to free the crimped (not torn!) meniscus of the knee. And it takes just one treatment.”
Pain changes everything. Chiropractic care changes pain.
