PHARMACIST TURNED PROFESSIONAL PHOTOGRAPHER DRIVES FROM DENVER TO FIND RELIEF FOR HER CHRONIC NECK PAINRead Now
KARINA'S PAIN RELIEF STORY
Karina's story is rather amazing. Born and raised in Argentina, she studied hard and became a pharmacist. However, she eventually began questioning her career choice in light of what she was coming to understand about the inner nature of health and healing as related to the pharmacological paradigm of healing. She eventually left the profession to pursue her true passion; photography. Rest assured, she is very good at what she does (HERE is a short bio along with some of her incredible work).
Karina and her lovely mother drove from Denver to see me about six weeks ago. Not only was I able to help her with her CHRONIC NECK PAIN and associated symptoms (cervical vertigo for one), I was able to spend about 10 minutes with her mom fixing a three year old case of DEQUERVAIN'S THUMB. It was so much fun meeting them and getting to share a couple hours together. God bless you both and thanks for the kind words! If you ever decide to come back, bring your camera and our family will take yours' to THE RIVER. Oh, and for those who are interested, I have a couple hundred SIMILAR TESTIMONIALS showing that this isn't a fluke.
Dr. Schierling is amazingly knowledgeable, professional, and kind. After living with chronic neck pain for a year and trying all kinds of treatments, from chiropractic, to massage, dry needling, and spending a fortune on these treatments as they are not covered by any insurance, I started to research more about the effect of the fascia on our overall health. When I found Dr. Schierling's website I was fascinated by all the vital information he had in it and I was immediately interested in his treatment. Unfortunately I could not find a doctor here in Denver that did Tissue Remodeling, so I decided to drive all the way to Missouri to see him.
My mom and I were both treated by Dr. Schierling for different conditions and we could not be happier with the results. I have gotten at least 50% better after seeing him only once and I keep improving. My mom, got treatment for her carpal tunnel problem, and now she can use her hand without any pain. We highly recommend Dr. Schierling and his treatments!!
POST-SURGICAL DeQUERVAIN'S SYNDROME AND PIRIFORMIS SYNDROME
"The management of de Quervain’s disease is determined more by convention than scientific data. From the original description of the illness in 1895 until the first description of corticosteroid injection by Jarrod Ismond in 1955, it appears that the only treatment offered was surgery. Since approximately 1972 the prevailing opinion has been that of McKenzie who suggested that corticosteroid injection was the first line of treatment and surgery should be reserved for unsuccessful injections. A systematic review and meta-analysis published in 2013 found that corticosteroid injection seems to be an effective form of conservative management of de Quervain's syndrome in approximately 50% of patients, although more research is needed regarding the extent of any [long term] clinical benefits." - Wikipedia, quoting from half a dozen scientific studies (1955 to 2013) from peer-reviewed journals.
- Pain at the Thumb Side of the Wrist
- Tenderness to the Touch in the Same Area
- Swelling Over the Thumb Side of the Wrist
- Difficulty Gripping Things or Opposing your Thumb (Pinching)
Even more interesting is that the two forms of treatment that the peer-reviewed literature discuss the most for DeQuervain's Syndrome (CORTICOSTEROID INJECTIONS and Surgery) are not any too effective. Case in point: just re-read the quote at the top of the page. Likewise, the same scientific literature considers NSAIDS to be 'palliative' as opposed to therapeutic (they have the potential to help you feel better, but do nothing to actually help you get better). In looking at the studies concerning treatment for DeQuervin's Syndrome, you will see lists of other treatment methods (besides Corticosteroid Injections or Surgery) that one might use to deal this this problem, and call them "experimental" (COLD LASER THERAPY is on this list). But then again, what can you expect from EVIDENCE-BASED MEDICINE. As you may have noticed, drugs and surgery rule the day --- it's where the biggest money is. As we already learned from the quote at the top of the page; just like so many other health problems (HERE), treatment protocols are determined not by "scientific data" but instead by "convention" (tradition). GREAT RESULTS cannot be faked!
I would suggest that if you think you think you might have this problem, take a long look at my site's DeQUERVAIN'S SYNDROME PAGE. I promise that you'll learn far more than your doctor ever thought about telling you (including information on making the diagnosis yourself ---- it takes all of two seconds).

(AND DeQUERVAIN'S SYNDROME)
I was thinking about all the formal appointments and expensive treatments I've undergone and honestly my mind is blown by how much more effective what you do is. I had to laugh about it... However it's frightening to me how people are victimized by so-called treatments that just make things even worse.
The stretching feels very good. The bruises are still sore, but I don't mind at all. I find myself unbelievably paranoid that the pain will return. I imagine that is normal after a year of constant debilitation. I did mean to ask you, do you think swimming is safe right now? That is my primary means of exercise, but I don't want to mess anything up! I am eager to see what the week brings, and am very glad we met.
Dr. Schierling completed four years of Kansas State University's five-year Nutrition / Exercise Physiology Program before deciding on a career in Chiropractic. He graduated from Logan Chiropractic College in 1991, and has run a busy clinic in Mountain View, Missouri ever since. He and his wife Amy have four children (three daughters and a son).
