Basic Information:


Age: 67

Condition: Torn meniscus

Initial treatment date: 8/16/2005


 February 6, 2006

In the summer of 2005, I began to experience pain and swelling in my right knee. I began to use a cane for support, found it difficult to climb stairs, and had sharp pain when driving a car, among other difficulties.

A subsequent MRI showed the dominant finding to be a torn meniscus. Two orthopaedic doctors explained that this cartilage could not heal on its own, and recommended arthroscopic surgery.

Instead, I began one treatment per week at the Eastern Healing Center with Mr. Owen Liao. After only four treatments, the swelling was dramatically reduced, and I felt a 50% improvement.

Until I receive another MRI, I cannot prove whether the cartilage is repairing or not. But I can say that after eleven sessions with Mr. Liao, I can drive a car pain free, use the stairs normally, and estimate my knee condition to be 70% improved.

Also my overall health and well-being have benefited. Thanks to Mr. Liao, who I believe has intuitive gifts and skills that are exceptional in the healing arts.


N. B.

P.s. I also found Mr. Liao's Tai Chi movement practice and the far infrared patches to be helpful.
