Kaarina Selin, who has been treated by Hannu Timonen, tells us that she had been looking for help for her arm problems from numerous doctors, including physiatrists, without result. “Pain killers no longer helped by the time I went to see Timonen. My arm was in such a bad shape that I could not even lift a pound object because of the pain.”
Already the first treatment session had an effect and alleviated the pain.
Kaarina Selin says that evidently there are quite a few of her kind of people suffering from elbow and shoulder problems who do not know where to look for help although help is as near as a doctor.
Kaarina explains that she had had her arm treated twice. Before that treatment Hannu Timonen had treated problems with her side, and had discovered that one rib was completely detached. Timonen directed his patient to see a doctor who removed the detached and damaged rib surgically.
“For 15 years I had been running from one doctor to another because of pain in my side. Moreover, I had high blood pressure and suffered from arrhythmia. Doctors finally examined me thoroughly from head to heel, and came to the conclusion that the problem was between the patient´s ears, and that one should learn to live with one´s ailments.”
Then I became angry, and decided to try chiropractic treatment, and Timonen finally found a real reason for my ailments.
Kaarina Selin continues that when she was treated manually for the first time, she was in really bad condition. Physical treatments prescribed by doctors had not helped at all.
“I felt crippled all over. I had stomach problems, a lack of appetite, lower back aches arrhythmia and pain in my arms.”
Kaarina explains that after the treatment sessions she felt like walking on clouds. Today I can do any work from spring sowing, gardening to picking berries in the forest. Earlier these type of activities were impossible, since I could hardly put a kettle on the stove, and swallow a pain killer.
When compared to continuously running from doctor to doctor, visits to Timonen have been relatively rare. “I am so happy that life is worth living again” concludes Kaarina Selin.
