Successful Healing of Severe Horseback Riding Accident
A female patient suffered from a severe horseback riding accident which had occurred at the age of 15. The horse fell into a jump. When it attempted to get up one foot of the patient was caught in the stirrup. The patient was dragged a few feet until her face was slammed into a post. A subsequent diagnosis did not identify any further injury.

Shortly after the patient started to run three times a week. After a couple of weeks the patient started to experience sharp shooting pain in her left side-ribcage. The pain became worse over time. Therefore, the patient concluded that there had to be something fundamentally wrong.

She approached several MDs for further investigation of the symptoms but none of them could identify the problem. Blood tests as well as CTs had been taken several times. No explanations for the problem were found. Several anti-inflammatory drugs had been prescribed without success. Worst of all, insurances did not cover the expenses for all the measures ordered by the MDs (e.g. $1,400 per CT and $200 per visit).

Over time the pain had become really bad. The patient could not run, workout, or ride horses. In addition, sleeping had become difficult. Many times the patient woke up during the night due to the permanent pain.

Given the bad condition of the patient, a chiropractic treatment followed next. The patient saw two chiropractors for the following two years. Both practitioners charged enormous fees without any major result.

The first chiropractor diagnosed major misalignments (based on x-rays) and suggested one whole year for treatment. The patient had three treatments a week for the first four months, then two sessions a week for another four months, and finally one session a week for the remaining two months. The total treatment of about 100 adjustments and $50 per session amounted to $5,000. Her mom settled the cost with a one time upfront payment of $1,900. The chiropractor used a small device called Activator to correct the misalignments.

Given the lack of success achieved by the first chiropractor the patient started a treatment with another one. He also took x-rays base on which he suggested manual adjustments rather than using the Activator device. He sold one year of treatment for $1,800 (about 100 sessions). Many areas of the patients neck and back were manually adjusted. Unfortunately, the patient had become worse rather than better after completing the annual treatment program.

Given the miserable condition of the patient, a friend advised to see Dr. Lubecki. He explained to the patient that once the skull and atlas were adjusted the entire spine would straighten out and all misalignments would correct themselves immediately. The results confirmed his diagnosis. After Dr. Lubeckis adjustment the pain stopped right away (2008). The patient had been free of pain for the first time in years. The results have sustained ever since. The patient is riding again and enjoys life as before the accident.
