WRIST, HAND, & THUMB TESTIMONIALS
_The treatment worked wonders for the pain I had in my hand. For 7 years I had what I thought was arthritis in my thumb. But it wasn’t, it was scar tissue built up in a tendon --- something he called DeQuervain's Syndrome. Dr. Schierling treated my hand and it took away the pain. Thanks for all you do.

A bit over two months ago, I was walking down the isle of the church that I pastor and I whacked the back of my hand on a chair back. Although it hurt tremendously, I did not think much of it at first. I quickly lost my grip, and just the simple act of shaking hands caused me a great deal of pain. I went for x-rays and they told me that nothing was broken. When I went to Dr. Schierling, he told me that “bumps” or “blows” to a tendon can actually cause problems that are virtually indistinguishable from tendinitis. Believe it or not, he fixed my problem in less than two minutes. I can squeeze and grip without any pain. I should have known that he could take care of this because he fixed my shoulder the same way a few years ago. PASTOR PAUL HAMM, SUMMERSVILLE, MO
DR. KEVIN SCHIERLING
This is my younger brother Kevin. Kevin and his wife Michelle are Emergency Room Physicians at Stormont Vail in Topeka Kansas. Almost a year ago, Kevin had developed a case of DeQUERVAIN'S SYNDROME that he could not shake. Listen as he tells you his story.
_I was eight months pregnant and was going up a flight of stairs when two students came flying around the corner and down those stairs. One boy tripped over the other and fell right into me. I stuck out my arms to protect my baby belly. The boy was caught by my wrist which was twisted backward. It didn’t hurt at first, but gradually, I noticed more and more pain. I saw my OB and he told me that my tendons were looser when pregnant and that it would probably stop hurting after I had the baby. This was in 2005. I gave birth…still had pain in my wrists…went back to the doctor… wore the thumb spike (bracing) apparatus for 6 months. It helped, but shortly after taking it off for good, my wrist still had pain. At a visit to Dr. S to have my back adjusted, I mentioned that I had pain in my wrist and told him the whole story of my two year ordeal. He asked if he could try soft tissue repair on my wrist and went on to explain how scar tissue causes chronic pain. I thought, “Why not, I am willing to try anything at this point.” After one treatment my wrist was healed! I almost couldn’t believe it. I had struggled with wrist pain for two years, done everything my doctor had suggest with only temporary relief, and all I really needed was one five minute treatment. It is now 2011 and the pain in my wrist has not returned.
I am currently having treatment done on my hip. The first treatment only seemed to help a little bit, but I went in yesterday and had it worked on again (he worked on a bit different spot). I feel better today than I have in months. I may still need one or two more treatments but they are well worth the minor discomfort for long term results. I would recommend scar tissue repair to anyone who wants the pain to be gone for good. CANDRA GOODCHILD, GRADE SCHOOL TEACHER, MOUNTAIN VIEW, MO
_I used to be incredibly active in performing with color guards both locally and across the country. But all of that spinning of flags, rifles, and sabres had taken a toll on my wrists to the point that I was no longer able to do what I loved. Doctors diagnosed me with CTS --- Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (without even testing for it) and recommended that I have the normal CTS surgery, which would cut my tendons and quite possibly prevent me from having the hand dexterity for ever being able to spin again. Dr. Schierling’s occasional spinal adjustments already had relieved knee pain that I had for years, so I trusted him when he suggested Tissue Remodeling. It was a physically painful process at the time, but it was short compared to the time that I spent in agony during my performing years. I had relief within just a couple of hours. After my second treatment, I was able to get back into spinning a little to build my strength back up, and since then I have been able to pass my gift on to my students by teaching color guard. I am incredibly grateful for this “advancement” and its being shared with me!
