Treatment of My Right Knee Pain

Basic Information:


Age: 63

Condition: Right knee pain

Initial visit:  May 22, 2006


The knee pain was caused by the inflammation of the medial meniscus of the right knee. The pain was recently triggered by the patient's new jogging activities. With my examination, I found that both his lateral and medial meniscus have some extent of inflammation on both knees.


About two months ago I strained my right knee while running. For the first week or so I just took Ibuprofen and limped. I was not careful and probably injured the ligaments more.

I went to a conventional orthopedist who took X-rays and told me that I had calcium deposits in the ligaments and that this was a common pre-arthritic condition. He said that he could give me a shot of Cortisone if I wanted, but that there wasn't much else that he could do.

A friend of mine had been seeing Owen for another condition and had said that the acupuncture treatments were very effective.

I had never tried acupuncture before, but I decided to give it a try. I was very pleased with the initial results and decided to continue. Owen pointed out that the particular problem (my right knee) was only a symptom of a more widespread condition that had been building up for years and demonstrated where some of the other problems were imminent. I could feel when he pressed some of the other areas that, although there was normally no pain, the inflammation was building up. I decided to continue treatment after the right knee was essentially pain free (10 treatments in about 4 weeks). Owen estimates that about 25 treatments (total) will restore my body's balance. I can feel the improvement in my health and flexibility as treatment continues.

The cost of Owen's treatment is much less, and the effectiveness is much greater, than any conventional Western Medicine treatment that I have ever experienced. I now heartily recommend Owen's treatment to my friends and others that I know.
