Michael Beasley MS, NCBTMB, AIBT | 30.09.2011
Gender/age: 31 Year Old Female
Presented condition, complaints: Violent Crime — 2 gunshot wounds 2001, 55 surgeries, multiple skin, muscle, grafts, total hip replacement, Total arm replacement (Humeral, elbow, radius component)
Past medical history (if available):
Chronic pain, RSD as the result of violent crime attack by deranged stranger, .270 caliber gunshot to right side, right elbow, left hip. 55 surgeries, multiple skin, muscle, grafts, free flaps (trapezius, rectus abdominus, and anterolateral free flaps), total hip replacement, total arm replacement (Humeral, elbow, radius component). Developed RSD (CRPS Types I and II) to left leg, right arm.
Time of action during session: Typically 45 min — 1 hour, sometimes 1–2 times per day.
Action modes used: A3 modes — Slider Auto vs. A3 735AGM
SCENAR-COSMODIC /Slider Auto for Dosing
SCENAR-COSMODIC /Slider 10 for Dosing
COSMODIC Myo set to manual 50% for Little Wings
Areas treated: Affected right hand, arm, shoulder, left hip, GB 19 and GB 21, ST 36, 3P6P, Little Wings (in myo mode)
Change of the patient's condition during and after session:
Pain dropped dramatically, increase in all over comfort.
Total number of sessions: 2
Total time of treatment (days, weeks): Twice — evaluation of Slider
Final result of treatment: The pain relief was felt faster with the 735Slider vs. the 735AGM in the treated areas. Then just as with the 735AG Modific, the relief spread globally (to other parts of the body) and promoted a more parasympathetic state. The owners historical use of Let Medical devices enabled her to eliminate weekly stellate ganglia and lumbar blocks, reduce pain medications and eliminated her pain doctor recommended spinal cord stimulator implant from ever being pursued.
Her RSD affected limbs have improved color and are warmer post therapy.
When the Slider was placed onto any affected area (Point of pain Protocol), each area generated a strong relaxation response, an "Ahhhh" feeling of relief as the pain rapidly subsided. This was what the 735AGM also did in the beginning and still does, just not at every site, so perhaps there has been some accommodation the Modific.
Comments on the new device working: The Slider has the same ease of use as the 715AG and 735AGM, but the display is not as easily interpreted. I liked the display of the Modific better, it is more intuitive. The Slider felt stronger, slightly faster in a way and more efficient than the Modific and yet not overpowering. Its “energy feel” was interesting and different from the Modific. I like them both.
Note — this client has owned/used the following Ritm Pro, DOVE, CDove, AcuSCEN Pro, 715AG, 735AGModific. She presently uses only 2 devices; the 735AG Modific and the DOVE (which she carries in her purse at all times).
