Toshie Shimizu (a pseudonym 71-year-old woman) living in Suita City began to suffer from right back pain and foot stiffness eight years ago and became severe two years ago. She was diagnosed with "lumbar spondylolisthesis, spinal canal stenosis, and lumbar disc herniation" by MRI examination at an orthopedic clinic.She was towed at the clinic and received analgesics, but it was not good, but she received reputable acupuncture, shiatsu, and massage, but it was ineffective. Pain and stiffness were so bad that she couldn't walk. she crouched and rested for a while before walking. (Intermittent claudication) The interval between walking gradually became shorter, about 3 minutes.When she consulted her doctor because her condition had worsened, she was told that she had no choice but to undergo surgery. However, she had three difficulties: slippage, stenosis, and hernia. When she
consulted with her daughter living in Tokyo, she was introduced to me and said, "you have a good teacher nearby."
The muscles of the right hip, hips and thighs with pain and stiffness became stiff, and the stiffness especially on the outside of the buttocks was severe. she also had stiff shoulders, headache, pyometra, fifty shoulders, and coldness. Her indicator of poor blood circulation level was 5 and her blood circulation was poor.
At the first treatment, I focused on treating the induration (the area of stiffness), and she was surprised because most of the back pain and stiffness were removed. Her pain was reduced and she was glad to go to garden work and pool where she couldn't do it before and swim again.
The symptoms improved after the second treatment, so I was convinced that the cause was muscle stiffness, not bone.
When I say, "You can heal without surgery," she was bright with hope.
She had to take two rests to walk to the station, but after three treatments she could walk without stopping and go shopping to Umeda.
Later, when her condition improved, she came to the hospital with symptoms such as gardening, weeding a cemetery, shopping, traveling, and swimming, but the stiffness gradually softened and became smaller than before. After that, she visited the hospital two or three times a month and was better treated.
After that, she got better and could do gardening, weeding cemeteries, shopping, traveling and swimming. She came to the my clinic when she was overwhelmed and had symptoms, but her stiffness gradually softened and became smaller than before. After that, she visited my clinic two or three times a month and was better treated.
＊ Indicator of poor blood circulation level
The oriental medicine's unique pathological concept refers to the poor state of peripheral circulation as OKETU, which indicates its degree. Blood pressure increases as the number of symptoms such as coldness, stiff shoulders, headache, insomnia and poor blood circulation such as skin condition increases. Investigate from the questionnaire on the pre-examination card established by the BCT Association.
Keiko Hirahata, "62-year-old female" resident of China, suffered a pain in her left groin (Base of thigh) from around May 30, 2018, and suffered severe pain when she got up in July.When she returned home in Japan and was examined at the hospital, she was diagnosed with "lumbar spondylolisthesis", and a doctor told her that this would not go away. She was prescribed an analgesic but did not improve.She lost her way and searched the internet for "lumbar spondylolisthesis", hit "Slippery Specialist", and returned to China after receiving 18 expensive treatments to reduce the pain. However, it recurred in September, and this time she returned to Japan again because she was more painful and unable to bend forward, and came to my clinic with a feeling of struggling with straw.
When I consulted, a tender, hard scotch was palpated in her painful right groin. The stiff left shin (lower leg) and left buttocks were also hardened. With one treatment, pain in the groin, back pain, and stiffness in the lower leg were alleviated, and the pain disappeared even if he bent forward.The pain returns a little at the second time, but the treatment improves and the patient can bend forward. The third time, the symptoms improved by 90%, so I should treat her shoulder and thyroid. On the sixth occasion, her back pain and pain in her groin were gone. Be able to raise the shoulder joint. The induration of the groin and buttocks was completely softened and returned to China.
Later, when she returned home in early December, she had no pain and had no recurrence. The remaining fifty shoulders were treated. When she returned to Japan in 2020, her back pain and pain in her groin were completely cured.
