Now 70 year old male tells his story of an injection gone wrong…7 and a 1/2 years ago he went in for a lumbar spine epidural and he ended up with a cerebral spinal fluid leak. This has caused constant, 24/7, headaches that are reported to be all over the head and very severe.
After being evaluated by Dr. Fitzgerald, OD at Dr. Fitzgerald & Associates, he was referred to complete a Multi-Sensory Reset Therapy (the Vision In Motion Pinnacle Program for those of you that know of it). Throughout the 12 day program, he was dry needled by an Athletic Trainer 2-3 x per week to relieve head pressure and allow the cerebral spinal fluid to flow. The patient states that he felt the largest impact from dry needling than he ever has with any other treatment.
He continues to receive treatment 1-2x per week during the 1 month period between the end of the MSRT program and his re-assessment with Dr. Fitzgerald, OD. These sessions consist of eye hand coordination exercises, specifically noted benefits from tossing a ball with a partner, and dry needling.
This patient continues to report improvements in his chronic headaches; that they now occur only at the end of the day. AND that some times he goes days without one at all! Can you imagine going through the trauma that this man has, understanding that he will always be in pain due to the injection gone wrong, and then wake up without headaches multiple days in a row?! That is the power of combining treatments appropriately, utilizing your medicine team, and incorporating a 360 degree health program.
