42 YEAR OLD PRESENTING WITH DUPUYTREN'S CONTRACTURE
Miss G was diagnosed with Dupuytren's contracture (a constriction of the fingers into the palm of the hand) and told that it was genetic and needed surgery.
After the first session the lump and adhesions had reduced and by the 3rd session had reduced to a point where maintenance only was required on a monthly basis.
59 YEAR OLD PRESENTING WITH FROZEN SHOULDER
Mr. M is a golfer who presented with a left frozen shoulder. He was unhappy that he was unable to play without being in pain. He had had other treatment which had resolved the problem to about 60%.
After 2 sessions of NST the shoulder was released to 98% and after the 3rd to 100%. He also reported that his golf had improved!
38 YEAR OLD PRESENTING BUNIONS
Miss K has presented with bunions.
Her treatment has consisted of Fascial release work on her feet followed by NST work. After 3 treatments and a great deal of advice about high heel shoes and home care advice, her bunions are much improved.
3 YEAR OLD PRESENTING WITH BREATHING PROBLEMS
Master J was a caesarean birth. At 10 months he developed breathing problems and was hospitalized twice. His symptoms came back every time he developed a cold. He had been prescribed steroids.
He had 3 treatments and dispensed with his inhaler much to his mother's relief. He is now 4 and continues to be in good health.
42 YEAR OLD WITH BACK PROBLEMS
Mrs. S had a problem with her back at 29 years old, quite likely as a result of carrying a heavy rucksack whilst travelling. She had also had two severe accidents that affected her lower back and coccyx. She had had various treatments over the years but nothing resolved her issues. She said that not a day had gone past when she did not feel pain in her back. A keen cyclist and swimmer she has not been able to do anything for several years.
After 3 sessions of NST she was relieved of her pain. She continues to maintain her recovery with specific NST exercises and has a treatment approximately every 6 weeks for the tremendous relaxation and energizing she gets from the treatment.
58 YEAR OLD PRESENTING WITH CARPAL TUNNEL
Mrs. P has developed CTS from sitting at a computer all day.
After 1 session of NST she was much improved. For the second session some EMMETT work was included on the arms and the symptoms disappeared.
65 YEAR OLD PRESENTING WITH LOSS OF FEELING IN
LEGS AND FEET
Mr. C presented with eczema on both legs especially the left in the region of the ankle and ¼ way up the leg. There was also numbness from the ankle through the sole of the foot which started in the left foot 4-5 years ago and then spread to the right foot and leg.
After the first session he started to feel the sensation coming back into his feet. Over the next 3 the eczema improved and he had enough feeling back in his legs and feet to resume going to exhibitions (his passion is astronomy so this is rather important). He is now coming for treatment on a maintenance basis. He says that he has his life back!
48 YEAR OLD PRESENTING WITH SCIATICA SYMPTOMS
Mrs P presented with a constant pain from her right hip down her right leg. She had had a serious accident 20 years ago and had sought help from several eminent doctors to no effect.
She felt relief after the first session and was pain free after the 3rd. When she gets a "twinge" she reports that her body is able to resolve the issue without intervention on my part – which is great news.
She is also using the NST exercises.
