Susan is married with two children and lives in London. At the time I went to see Susan she had been diagnosed with a herniated disc to her L3 vertebrae and spinal bulges to her L4 & L5 discs. The severity of the injury was causing Susan to lose control of her bladder and bowel movements also numbness and paralysis from the waist down. After a consultation Susan agreed to have treatment. The initial treatment consisted of, six 15 minute phases of Interferential Electro Stimulation Therapy, at a frequency of 80-130Hz for acute pain alternating with a frequency of 2-5Hz for chronic pain. Electro pads were placed on the lower lumbar region. Completing treatment with 15-20 minutes of Shiatsu Spinal Massage and Vertebrae Alignment techniques.
