Before I attended Dr Chao’s acupuncture clinic I was in despair. Having had a sporting life playing golf and tennis on a regular basis and to a good standard. I found that due to injury I was unable to play either, infect I couldn’t lift a golf club without great pain. My path to your clinic was a long one, having had two unsuccessful cortisone injections from my GP. I then visited a physiotherapist specialising in tennis injuries. Following in unsuccessful six weekly course I noticed the Crystal Palace Sport Injuries Clinic but again the result was unsuccessful. I was recommended an Osteopath and then a Chiropractitioner but after a succession of treatment neither was beneficial and I found myself at a large Indoor Tennis Centre Sports Therapy Department where after six sessions she suggested second opinion. At this stage, being desperate for exercise I had started to use my left arm for almost everything and had heart to play darts and play tennis but unfortunately after a months this arm started to give me problems, I could now no longer lift a pint of beer in either hand and it was in this condition that I saw another Sport Therapist for the second opinions. Somewhat reluctantly, he agreed to treat me suggesting that treatment on the left arm first might at least enable me to start playing golf again, by now I had became quite depressed, not playing league tennis for over a year, playing golf off an 8 handicap was a compensation, but this stopped without the use of the left arm. My first visit to this Sports Therapist was on the Saturday on the Monday I had treatment from Dr. Chao, on Wednesday I again saw the Sports Therapist who was astonished at the improvement in both arms. He stated and these words of his stack in my mind. “Its incredible, on the Saturday when I saw you, you were semi disabled and now you’ve got all this movement in both arms, it can’t be just me because I only worked on your left arm.” My visits to the Sports Therapist stopped shortly afterwards and he was so impressed by my treatment that he wanted Dr Chao’s clinic address for referrals. Dr. Chao treated me for a few weeks and I am happy to say that both arms are fully recovered and I am playing tennis four times per week for my club once again. Michael
