Injury to the lip,
Injury to the lip
Female : 45 yrs
Injury to the lip, teeth, gums and jaw bone
Over the years this patient had incurred many minor injury's related to horse riding, but none serious or hospitalised for any length of time.
Sustained a hairline fracture to the jaw after a riding accident some years ago which resulted in some major dental work but all was fixed and rectified and no other related conditions or repercussions have occurred since.
Here are the photos of how she was once she got home, these were taken by her with her phone.
She felt unable to use the 735L device that I had given her to use in this instance as she felt only capable of going to bed and lying down.
She had not used a device herself before and was unaware of the effect it may have for her, even though I had tried to explain, prior to her surgery.
I called her by telephone on 21st and she explained why she had not touched herself with the device. She thought that she would have to press it quite firmly to her face which was very painful still.
She simply was not confident in doing that so she had decided not to work. I explained to her that it would be better for her to at least work on the cervical neck area as all work is best done from the CNS first and then if necessary locally.
So she started working from the back of the neck every 2 hours. After the first session the swelling was much less and she was then able to begin to work locally also.
She kept doing as I had instructed for each day following and came to see me on my return Friday 23rd November
This is how she looked when she came to me:
She felt very relaxed after, all pain much relieved and she was able to speak without speech impediment that had become since the surgery.
She went shopping , first time out since the surgery and returned after 2 or so hours.
We worked again for 35 minutes approximately after which she said she felt virtually normal again.
We took further photos after and now she was able to actually eat a meal. She had been on liquids since Monday unable to eat anything that was not soup!
She has now taken receipt of the EX735 Ag and no longer is using the VX735L.
She wants to work again after the next surgery when the temporary crowns are removed and the permanent ones are put in. Also she has an ailing dog and wishes also to work on her husband.
