Saidi is a highly competitive ballroom dancer so when she sprained her ankle, it meant not being able to dance for a period of time. Unfortunately, even after seeing all the specialists and trying different treatment methods, she still experienced residual ankle pain that affected her dancing. “After that injury, dancing hasn’t been the same ever since. Every specialist I went to kept telling me the pain was normal but I didn’t feel it was normal.”
Saidi’s Treatment Experience
Saidi was looking for a treatment solution that didn’t require invasive measures or significant downtime. We started treating Saidi with Acousana® therapy which allowed her to continue dancing. Saidi felt pain throughout her ankle and up her calf to the extent that raising just her toes caused significant pain. After Saidi’s fourth Acousana treatment, she stated that she had no pain and is recovering much faster than she was anticipating.
“It’s been very successful, I don’t have pain anymore. I have definitely seen an improvement in my activity level.” Saidi can now dance just like she use to without experiencing ankle pain. Before, Saidi had to extensively warm up her ankle before performing any dance moves but now she’s able to demonstrate dance moves to her students on the fly without any pain. “I’m very happy with One Wellness because I feel like finally someone validated my pain but also gave me some results to get rid of my pain.”
