Manual adjustment cured the pain


Posted 2008-07-20

My name is Novi. I live in Singapore.

A few years back, I fell down hard on my tailbone while exercising. The pain was excruciating and for a while, I thought I was going to be blind. A trip to the A&E Dept didn't give me any solution.. the doctor did an X-Ray and concluded that I had a small crack on my tailbone which he said the tailbone would heal by itself in 6 months time. He sent me home with painkillers and told me to rest at home.

I could not lie on my back .. could not sit down at all for a few days till my mom suggested that I see a Chinese Physician specializing in bone treatment.. The physician examined my X-Ray and said it's not a crack, but the tailbone was bent and that's the cause of my pain.

As my threshold of pain was very very low… he recommended doing acupuncture to de-stress the nerves around the tailbone. After a few rounds of acupuncture, he just inserted his finger into my anus, and I'm not sure what he did, but I just felt that he was straightening my tailbone using his finger! I felt some pain, maybe for 2 seconds or so, then the treatment was done. I felt immediate relieve and could walk again! I did another 'tailbone straightening' treatment a few days after that, followed by some 'wind removal' treatments to remove the trapped 'wind' inside.. and I was free of pain!
