Martino Ceuppens was born with a bilateral (both feet) Clubfoot Deformity. As an infant, his orthopedist placed him in serial casts in an attempt to correct the deformity. It was only partially effective and as a result, Martino started developing hip pain in his late 20s.
By the time Martino reached his 40s, his now chronic hip pain was at times severe and debilitating. When he entered his 50s, in order to control his now continuous pain, Martino took a litany of pain medication in order to get through each day: 81 mg Aspirina, 80 mg Isoptino, 150 mg Pregabalina, 75 mg Diclofenac and 50 mg Trazondona. (Medications prescribed in Spanish).
As Martino became older and his chronic hip pain escalated, he sought help from many healthcare specialists including an orthopedist, osteopath, physiatrist and neurosurgeon, all to no avail. His unrelenting hip pain continued and escalated out of control. He started having episodes of depression and his feelings of self worth diminished. Out of desperation, Martino came to me.
When I initially saw Martino, his hip pain was off the scale, even while taking his daily medications. I diagnosed him as having a partially corrected Clubfoot Deformity and noticed that his residual foot twist was producing postural distortions not only in his hip, but throughout his entire body.
X-rays and MRIs demonstrated no degenerative changes in Martino’s hip joint, but I determined that the significant mal-alignment of his hip was responsible for his debilitating pain.
A Lifetime Of Chronic Hip Pain Reduced To Zero In 9 Months
Martino started Rothbart Proprioceptive Therapy. His response to the therapy was almost immediate and within two months he had stopped taking all his pain medication and reported to me that he had almost no hip pain. Martino no longer felt depressed and he regained his feelings of self worth. Things that he could not do prior to therapy without pain, such as walking up and down stairs, tying his shoes, carrying heavy loads and being on his feet all day at work, he was now easily able to do without any pain what-so-ever.
Martino’s entire therapy with me lasted nine months. He now lives his life completely free from chronic hip pain.
Below is Martino’s testimonial, translated to English. To read the original Spanish, as he wrote it,go to the Patient Testimonial page.
Whether your chronic pain manifests as hip pain or any other chronic muscle and/or joint pain why struggle with temporary fixes and treatments that only work in the short term, like orthopedic, osteopathic or surgery?
Reading the Curing Chronic Pain website will give you more information about the abnormal foot structures I discovered that cause many forms of chronic muscle and joint pain and help you determine whether an Initial Phone Consultation with me might be helpful.
