A male, 31 years old, came in for treatment in June 2011. He had torn his right ACL while serving in the military in 2004 and had surgery to repair the torn ligament. Since the surgery 7 years ago, the patient has had chronic debilitating knee pain with numbness on his right lateral side due to muscle and nerve damage. As a result of this chronic pain, the patient had been unable to maintain his active lifestyle of being a runner and was only able to do light calisthenics once a week and had gained extra weight which caused him to be depressed.
I recommended the patient needed at least 5 to 8 sessions of acupuncture (once a week) to see significant improvement. After three 1-hour sessions where I combined acupuncture, topical herbs applied to the right lateral knee and Reiki therapy, the patient was almost pain-free with some slight numbness. From his testimonial he wrote, After 3 sessions of Acupuncture and Reiki, I have been able to exercise, run and jump on my knee again with no pain, stated the patient. The patient was extremely satisfied and continued with 2 more weekly sessions as initially recommended. The patient was able to resume his previous active lifestyle and work on losing the extra weight he had gained. He now has occasional arthritis in his knee due to the weather and his plan is to come in for treatment every few months for maintenance care.
