Successful Diagnosis and Healing of Rib Fracture
A male patient, age 37, had incurred a severe car accident in 2002 (he had been treated in the emergency room). The patient suffered from dramatic chest as well as mid thoracic pain (9 out of 10). He had trouble breathing. The MDs diagnosed a strain sprain. The diagnosis turned out to be wrong as the patient suffered from a rib fracture identified by the chiropractor (Dr. Mignano).

Based on the initial diagnoses Dr. Mignano started with chiropractic adjustments of the spine. It yielded some relief as the pain level had become reduced (total of 8 adjustments three times per week). However, the patient still reported anterior chest pain. A painful tuning fork test for stress fractures was implemented (based on vibration). As a result, the patient was correctly diagnosed with a rib fracture.

Based on the new diagnosis 4 herbal FASTT patches were applied for a total length of 1.5 weeks. In addition, chiropractic adjustments were executed to treat other issues incurred from the accident.

Given the new and correct treatment approach the patient experienced an amazing pain reduction down to 1-2 out of 10. He could breathe well again and was able to go to work (patient is a dock worker who has to perform physical work). He was very happy about the outcome and remained as a wellness patient for another two years. The results of the treatment have been sustained ever since.
