Lucia | 60-year-old female
Lucia is a sous chef and presented initially with numbness and tingling in her right hand. Nerve studies revealed carpal tunnel syndrome requiring surgical intervention. After an open carpal tunnel release, her symptoms resolved and she returned to work, where she was asked to continue cutting more than 300 avocados per day for 4 weeks. Not unsurprisingly, she developed pain, swelling, hardness and redness at the incision site. It got so bad that she could hardly touch the palm of her right hand without severe pain.
Lucia’s doctor recommended she come for Aquaroll® treatments several times a week. She saw an immediate improvement, with scarring, sensitivity, and redness all diminishing.
After 23 sessions, Lucia returned to full duty at work. One year later, she is still symptom free.
“In my line of work, we abuse our hands. Aquaroll® was like a mini spa break. It was fast enough I could do it over my lunch hour. I could feel it working almost instantly. Now, my scarring is down, I can touch my palm again without pain, and I’m back in the kitchen where I love to be.”
