LISMORE PAIN CLINIC, (02) 6622 6966


He was aware of his Husqvarna burbling in idle by his head, then woke up in hospital 11 days later.  This young man of 40, an arborist and in high demand because of his knowledge of trees, had been cutting a bough when he fell to the ground 30ft below. He landed on his head, splitting his skull. The bough he had been working on fell after him, crushing his pelvis and fracturing his spine.

I think it is amazing he survived at all, but here he was, a short man in obvious pain, sitting in front of me 18 months later, completing our intake form.  He had been brought in by a mate who thought that he might benefit from a SCENAR treatment.

I was struck by his, almost nonchalant demeanor and his gracious, uncomplaining nature. Here was someone who was not crushed by the tragedy in his story, but took each day as a new one, as it came.  After four months of laying on his back, many more months of gruelling training he is able to walk … with pain as his constant companion. Speech therapy has helped him communicate well again. He has only just now been granted a disability pension as he is unable to stand, sit, or move for very long.

As he stripped down for SCENAR treatment I recognised the familiar Norspan pain patches and wondered that even with these, his pain continually hovered between 8-9 out of 10.  I asked him for focus: Where was his greatest pain? He told me his knees had been in constant pain since the months of lying on his back in hospital. He tapped the titanium plate at his right temple and said it felt like the screws were pushing through his head. (His GP had checked it a few days ago and said all was normal.)

We worked together for about 35 to 40 minutes, chasing the pain.  I didn’t want to do too much.  This is still early days.

We were both amazed at his body’s reactions to the SCENAR’s prompting. He virtually had no pain after this treatment. He pushed his left ear forward with his finger and cried out in joy that he hadn’t been able to touch his ear for months.  Now it didn’t hurt. His head didn’t hurt.  His knees were not sore.  His mind was more clear.  His back felt light. He walked out with a grin from ear to ear and a spring in his step.

I can’t wait to see this man again next week.  We have a long way to go … but there is hope.  🙂
