I'm doing a special feature this Monday on my patient Lisa!
Lisa started coming to see me a little over two years ago after having at least 10 surgeries to correct congenital (from birth) club feet. Club feet often results in severe functional disabilities and pain throughout a person's life. Lisa also had just recently undergone a limb lengthening surgery to obtain a more equal leg length before further addressing her feet issues.
Throughout these surgeries and for much of Lisa's lifetime, she has chosen to receive regular chiropractic care to support her body. She has seen me about once a month for the past 2 years and 3 months consistently to ensure that her body is always supported.
With chiropractic adjustments, even to Lisa's feet, manual muscle testing and muscle therapies, organ system work, lymphatic reflex point work, vascular reflex point work, mind-body techniques, and much more, we have helped Lisa thrive.
Another significant component of Lisa's care has been nutritional sensitivity testing and nutritional and herbal supplement testing. Lisa and I regularly check her food sensitivities (often gluten, dairy, corn, soy, sugar, etc), which can change as the body changes each month. We also have had Lisa on a fairly extensive supplement regimen to support bone growth and remodeling, soft tissue structures, optimal mineral levels, mitochondrial function, and more. Lisa has been diligent in making the right diet and lifestyle changes and in taking her supplements.
It has been a long road for Lisa, but I am happy to report that she is doing AWESOME. She is now back in the gym 5 days a week working with a trainer and is also just beginning to learn to run again, and incorporate running back into her exercise regimen.
Thanks to Lisa for sharing her story with us, and for being a total joy to work with!
