Twenty-four years of pain, paresthesia and malocclusion resolved in one hour
Twenty-four years ago, Judith Hagan underwent a surgical procedure to remove a cholesteatoma (benign bone tumor) from her right ear. The surgery was a success however it left Judith with facial pain, paresthesia, and the inability to close her teeth comfortably. Judith literally went around with her teeth apart because they would not articulate. As a nurse practitioner, Judith sought out every imaginable form of diagnostic test and therapy to resolve her problem. MRIs, CAT Scans, consults with numerous neurologists, chiropractors, pain specialists brought no resolution. Acupuncture did result in reduction of the paresthesia but nothing relieved the pain or corrected the malocclusion.
I recently lectured at one of Dietrich Klinghardt’s seminars. Following my presentation, Judith came over and asked if I could help her with her chronic pain issue. From what she described and after a cursory, hands-on evaluation, I stated that I thought her problem stemmed from cranial distortions created by the surgery. Four days after the seminar Judith came in as a patient. I reviewed her medical history and then proceeded to evaluate her cranial alignment. I then performed a complete cranial adjustment. In addition to her cranial distortions she had a subluxation (misalignment) in two major joints. Using very gentle cranial manipulation I corrected her skull and the two misaligned joints. I spent an hour performing the procedure. Judith immediately broke out in tears because her pain of 24 years totally disappeared.
Unfortunately Judith’s problem is more common than one would believe. The knowledge and skills to comprehend these type distortions are above the pay grade of most healthcare practitioners. To make matters worse, most conventional medical doctors dismiss the fact that cranial bones move despite the fact that the medical literature scientifically documents it.
