Hereditary spastic paraplegia

Hereditary spastic paraplegia

"At the age of 42, I suddenly began to stumble over my own feet when walking and soon after my ability to walk 400 meters was exhausted. The risk of injury was great, and I'm lucky to say that I've only broken a toe in many falls. Finally I was diagnosed with a hereditary, spastic gait disorder i.e. hereditary spastic paraplegia. Conventional medicine cannot treat this wasting and variant disease, but only provide the patient with drugs that have severe side effects, and which do not provide any relief or even delay the progression of the disease. I therefore refrained from taking the medicinal treatment approach. I lost my job a year later as there was no longer any normal movement in my legs. One day I crashed and fell on my right arm, which was very painful because the bone mucosa was damaged. The next day I had my first treatment with HECT, in which the arm was also treated. In the evening, it hardly hurt and after the second treatment all symptoms in the arm disappeared completely. I have been treated with HECT for half a year now and after just a few therapy sessions was able to walk more than three kilometres and hardly felt my disability. And there is no discoordination any longer. Generally I enjoy the therapy sessions with HECT, as during the treatment I feel the spasms release and the numbness pass. Thanks to HECT I can now lead a nearly pain-free life. Please keep up the good work, there are surely many other people who are very happy due to HECT and who would otherwise have had no chance to become healthy and to live a symptom-free life.
