When you had originally presented to the office,you presented with chronic numbness, tingling, burning, in the hands and the feet. It limitedyour ability to walk, limited your ability to sleep, your ability to relax. We've completeda course of treatment here with the Davis neuropathy program, how have you done withthe treatment and how are you feeling today? I feel wonderful. I have to tell you thatthe treatment, I was on both programs. Before I came in, all that I knew that I had wasperipheral neuropathy after your exam, after you examined me. We found out that I had alsospinal stenosis in my spine. I have followed your program, both of your programs, the DRSprogram and the peripheral neuropathy program,
and I am doing beautifully. I can now walkwithout assistance which I was having to hold my husband's hand or somebody's hand whenI was shopping or doing anything. I could not drive by myself. I feel like a whole personnow. Well congratulations on your results and we're very proud to have you here as apatient. What else would you like to have me tell you?

Treating Neuropathy and Nerve Pain in the Feet
Let me start with I'm a diabetic. I developedneuropathy, which basically you lose all sensation in the feet, but it's over a period of time.It was very painful. I would have sensations in my feet like I was standing on fire, walkingon glass. Last October it got so bad that I couldn't sleep at night. Then I met Bullard, because he's just a great physician. I wouldn't think twice, I'd recommendhim to anybody. Very compassionate, very thorough, I can't say enough about Bullard. He'sjust a great physician and I don't know if there's anything he couldn't do hecould probably move mountains if he wanted to!Glen, probably one of the biggest questions
people are asking you is what'd we do, what'shappened. Of course, you had a tremendous improvement in your pain and the tinglingand the numbness. Easiest explanation is, to tell everybody, that this big nerve here,which is on the inside part of your left foot, was getting strangled. There was a noose aroundit. What we did is we went in and loosened the noose, and that allows that nerve to beginto function and work like it's supposed to.Now, the sensation is coming back, it's something that's going to take time butI can feel more. My quality of life has greatly improved since I had the procedure done by Bullard. There's no other physician
that I would recommend.Glen, in the next couple weeks, what we're going to do is make sure that the swellingis improving, hopefully begin to transition you out of your compression socks, becauseI know it's kind of hot right now, and then look at making sure that your shoe gear andthings like that are where they're supposed to be, fitting you well, protecting your feetand stuff. Ok? Very good. Thank you, I appreciate it, havea good weekend! You do the same. Alright, see ya.
Bellevue Chiropractor Reviews MidTreatment Evaluation Results with Peripheral Neuropathy Patient
You received so far, okay, and it talks aboutthe lasers and what it is they do. So just in a recap, when you first came in Shirley,a normal foot scores seventy four point on the vibration and cool and heat and lighttouch; you scored twenty points on the right leg and fifteen points on the left leg. Sothat's more than a thirty, thirty five percent is all you really have left in those nerves,so seventy percent deficit. Okay, they're seventy percent wiped out. Today after justten sessions, so only half way through, you scored fifty four on both feet. So now yourdeficit from seventy percent is down to reversed, it's only about thirty percent deficit. Thatis phenomenal. So that's just on the objective
test, on your subjective, we talked aboutwhen you entered in, how you, you know, walk and how does it feel. When you first scored,the worst score you can get is fifteen, and when you first came in you scored twelve.Pretty high score. The worst score you could score is fifteen and you scored twelve. Todayyou scored eight. The best score is zero, so you're on your way there! Better than halfway there as well. And then on the really important one, which is the walking scale,this is the test that evaluates how well you can function on a walking basis. Again normalis less than twelve points, the smaller the number the better, it's kind of like golf.When you first came in you scored sixty point
which qualified for severe disability; anythingover forty six points is severe. Today you scored only thirty eight, you're no longerseverely disabled, you're moderately disabled. Everything is going in the right direction.It feels like it, I'm getting better. Yeah, so what are the best things you've seen sofar? Well moving my feet, my toes, I can move them and I think I'm walking better. You'redefinitely walking better; fom sixty down to thirty eight, definitely walking better.And I don't have pain, my daughter says I don't hear you complaining anymore! So that'spretty phenomenal results, in just several weeks, I'm very proud of you, you've donegreat! We've done great! We've done great!
