OT May I share our miracle??

I know this is off topic for this board, but I just have to share a miracle that just happened to my daughter!

To make a long story short, she was injured at 15 yrs old in a karate tournament which led to a condition called Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy...a serious pain condition which included an involuntary movement disorder.

That is incredible! What a blessing that the treatment worked so quickly and so well.

Working in clinical research, I've seen many types of patients suffer from many types of pain, and whether doctors can prove that some treatments work or not, I say, if your daughter is feeling better, that's great!

Sadie, I am so happy to hear this news about your daughter's recovery. They still do not know everything about the brain and the countless ways in which it works with itself and the rest of the body, so I'll echo what Liz says and say that if it worked for your daughter, then that is excellent news! I am glad that she is now able to begin living life pain-free and I hope this continues for her. Yayyyy!
