"My wife, Maria Helena, suffered from pain in her legs and hips all her adult life. The condition was a sequel to a childhood spent learning to walk again after contracting polio at ago seven. She had always accepted this as the price of her mobility.
Following the series of treatments you gave her to restore full movement to her left foot and correct her skeletal imbalance, along with the new lift you supplied for her shoes to accommodate the difference in the length of her left leg, she has been pain free. Completely pain free.
This is a life-changing outcome. Her gait is confident, her standing posture straight, and above all she can walk without discomfort. ‘I still can’t believe this has happened,’ she has said to me over and over. ‘For all these years I’ve had to compensate mentally and physically for pain. Walking hurt. Climbing stairs was especially difficult and I almost never slept through a whole night without waking up from the pain in my hip and leg. To be suddenly free of pain is like having a new life handed to me.’
You can imagine my own feelings in response to this development. What a series of orthopedic physicians could not accomplish in more than twenty years, you brought about in a few weeks. You have made an extraordinary contribution to the quality of Maria Helena’s life. I could not be more pleased, knowing she can walk and enjoy her daily activities in comfort. On behalf of us both - thank you."
