Scenar - Is the pain bad enough to try something new?

Achilles Tendonitis


A 45-year old woman with severe Achilles Tendonitis. She is in fairly good health, good diet, normally gets regular exercise. She has pain and tightness in both Achilles tendons, especially on the left side which is excruciating at night, pain level 9 out of 10, with a milder ache spreading up the gastrocnemius muscle. It wakes her up every night, requiring her to get up, do stretching exercises and apply cold treatments. She had physiotherapy three months ago which made it slightly better during the treatments, but afterwards it became even worse, and it has worsened progressively since then. She hasn't had a good night's sleep for four months, and the pain has become much worse over the past week.

She has been told she has scar tissue in both Achilles tendons, and I can feel a large, tender lump half way down the left Achilles, over 2 cm wide. There is tightness and tenderness in the Achilles tendons and gastrocnemius muscles in both legs.

I used a Scenar-Cosmodic ex735ag Modific Prototype throughout her course of treatments.

I treated her back in 3 Pathways with Slider 5, Medium strength. The 10 zones treated were all in her lumbar region, and seven of them dosed in less than a minute, but, predictably it was zones to the left and right of her sacrum which produced 6 and 12 minute doses. Scenar/Cosmodic ratios were generally 5/5 and 6/4 at this and most of the  later sessions. I also treated her left and right Achilles with Slider 10, and then Scenar-Cosmodic Myo on the left gastrocnemius, which I stopped at 15 minutes. She said the tendons felt more relaxed after treatment, and the left one was not throbbing as it had  before the session. I used this basic treatment pattern, with variations, in almost every session.
Second visit, three days later. She said the left Achilles felt looser after the treatment and it was easier going down stairs. She didn’t wake up so much the following night, but the night after that it was quite painful, although not as much as before.  Again all high readings were in the lumbar region, and most doses were less than a minute, except for left of sacrum and the zone above that, taking 5 minutes and 18 minutes before I stopped. 
Third visit, two days later. She said she had been much better the night after the last treatment, hardly needing to get up from bed. But last night the pain came back very strongly. Again, most of her high readings were in the lumbar region but this time her right of T-2, and left of sacrum, mirrored each other with 4 and 5 minute doses. 
Fourth visit, five days later. The Achilles has been consistently better: she is still hobbling down stairs, and still waking up in the night, but now doesn't need to cold-pack it. During treatment, there were two long doses, 4 minutes and 17 minutes either side of her sacrum.

Fifth visit, two days later. The Achilles is still waking her up in the night, but it is now just an ache, rather than long, severe pain. Her quality of sleep has improved since she doesn’t even need to get up to stretch it now. Again one long dose on her sacrum which I stopped at 11 minutes, plus longish treatments on her Achilles tendons and gastrocnemius muscles. 
Sixth visit, two days later. She didn’t sleep well after the last treatment but last night was much better – she hardly felt any ache in the Achilles. It is hurting a bit now after walking around a lot today. This time, all zones dosed between 1 and 3 minutes.
Seventh visit, three days later. The Achilles was bothering her the past two days with aches going into the heel and upper gastrocnemius. However, today it’s much better. Last night she was amazed that there was no pain at all for the first time in a very long while. There were two long doses which I stopped at 11 minutes, above her sacrum and right of T1-2. At the end of the treatment, the pain became worse and moved, radiating down the side of the foot, but we ran out of time to treat this further.

Eighth visit, 2 days later. The new pain in the side of her foot continued for 36 hours after treatment. But although she feels an ache at times during the night, she is still not having to get up to stretch or ice-pack it. This time, we had three long doses, right of T9-10, and on L4-5 and her sacrum, stopped short at 8, 10 and 14 minutes, finishing off with both Achilles and gastrocnemius.
Ninth visit, 6 days later. The ankle continues to improve and has not been waking her at all at night. When she is walking, the Achilles now just feels tight. There were two long doses, one at 6 minutes to the right of T11-12, and another that I allowed to run for 18 minutes using Scenar-Cosmodic Myo on her left gastrocnemius. 
Tenth visit, 3 days later. Her ankle still feels fine, not waking her at night. Two days before, she had a substantial walk without the pain afterwards that she would normally feel.  We had two long doses lasting 7 and 13 minutes on L1-2 and right of her sacrum. As usual, I finished with a treatment on her Achilles tendons and gastrocnemius muscles in both legs. 

The left Achilles is still tender and stiff first thing in the morning and during sustained walking, but the pain has gone and her sleep is restored. We agreed that the condition is on the way out and we’ll now switch to weekly sessions until it is strong enough to resume long walks and, hopefully, sports.




Terry Waller, Insurance Manager, London (Frozen Shoulder)

"After lifting some heavy machinery, I found that trying to raise my left arm above my waist was very painful. My osteopath told me I had a frozen shoulder and although I got some relief from his treatment, he said it could take up to 12 months for things to normalise. Some weeks later I was introduced to Paul and his Scenar equipment. I was a little sceptical at first but after 2-3 sessions I began to notice improvement. To my amazement, after just 8 sessions I realised that I could raise my left arm as high and easily as my right. It's now just over a year later and I have remained completely pain free ever since. There is no hard sell with Paul who I found to be very knowledgeable and a consummate professional."

John Hayward, Engineer and Landscaper, Westham, Sussex (Neck + Shoulder Pain)

"The pain had reached levels that stopped my physical workload. The diagnosis was nerve compression due to an old injury to the C5/6/7 vertebrae. After four Scenar treatments, I was able to stop the painkillers. After three months and 10 treatments I can sleep on my side again, write and sign my signature fluently again, turn my head fully to the right and left..." 

Six months followup: "I'm doing heavy physical work again as part of my job, and despite needing occasional top-ups, I'm basically pain-free. Altogether, a phenomenal success."

Don Elwick, Managing Director, Brighton Media Centre (Cracked Ribs)

"On December 21st, 2009, I went out running, slipped on some ice, and fell heavily on my back. A nurse and a doctor both confirmed I had two or three cracked ribs. I spent the next week hardly sleeping due to the pain. On December 29th I saw Paul Lowe for a Scenar treatment, and that night I slept properly again. Over the next few days, almost all the pain had gone. I had a second Scenar treatment January 1st, and on January 4th, the doctor found it hard to believe there was nothing left from the accident."

"I had a very painful injury to my leg and I tried several therapies. Scenar was the best for really deep healing. Thank you Paul."

Tali Saar, Shiatsu and Cranio-Sacral Therapist, Lewes, Sussex (Facial Paralysis)

"I was treated by Paul Lowe for facial paralysis, I also had pain in my face and ear canal. The pains disappeared after the first two treatments, and soon there was a huge improvement in the paralysis and my energy levels. The treatments reminded me of a deep, relaxing place I had lost for many years. I experienced changes at many levels, far beyond my original symptoms. Paul has been both supportive and inspiring. He is a unique practitioner with vast knowledge in his field."

Erica Yonge, Energy Therapist, Marlborough, Wiltshire (Back Pain)

"Paul, I just wanted to say thank you so much for sorting out my back problem so effectively with Scenar. I was told I had a potential herniated disc in my lower back, and I was in a lot of pain for many years. In recent months, I was frequently unable to stand up straight for minutes at a time. After six Scenar sessions, not only am I completely pain free in my back for the first time in years, but my posture has corrected itself naturally. I wouldn't have believed I could be this pain free after so many years of pain.

Eighteen months followup: My back is still very good and posture is better than it's ever been. If you weren't so far away, I'd come for regular top-ups!"

Lucienne Atkinson, Business Owner, Oulston, Yorkshire  (Back Pain)

"Life had been years of debilitating pain. I was at my wit's end. Finding Paul Lowe and the Scenar treatment has been nothing short of a miracle for me. After two long treatments with him, the worst problem area for pain changed, almost disappeared."

18 months followup: "It's truly a miracle. I have gone back to the athletic person I was before. I can train hard on my mountain bike for 3 or 4 days in a row with no back pain!"

Tim Cornwall, Works Manager, Herstmonceaux, Sussex (Back Pain)

"I've had hip and lower back problems for over 30 years. This episode was the worst I've had for two years: I could hardly walk or drive. Until now, I'd go to the chiropractor for several treatments and take at least three weeks to recover. With Paul it took five days and four Scenar treatments to get back to normal. On day 1, I could barely walk. On day 3, I took the dog for a one-hour walk."

Barry Chapman, Designer, Hove, Sussex (Leg pain)

"I would recommend anybody with health challenges to talk to Paul. I had a combination of polymyalgia, extremely sore feet, low energy and limited mobility. I thought I had tried everything and had resigned myself to sliding down the slippery slope. Paul, his guidance and treatments, gave me hope when I had none, and for this I am extremely thankful. I've adjusted my lifestyle and diet and worked hard. I am now fit, energetic and strong."

Angela Gilroy, Media Designer, London (Back Pain)

"When I hurt my lower back, the pain made it impossible to move my right leg backwards when walking, so I had to shuffle. Paul Lowe gave me a brief Scenar treatment that night and I felt some relief immediately and got a good night's sleep. The next morning he gave me a full back treatment, and this produced a major change. It still felt a little tender but I could walk around almost normally."

Marco Crivello, Artist, Lewes, Sussex (Shoulder + Back Pain)

"I had acute pain in my right shoulder. I tried osteopathy and cranio-sacral over several weeks, but with negligible results. Paul treated me with Scenar daily for four days, and by the end I was pain-free. On another occasion, I was in acute pain months after Achilles tendon surgery -- after one treatment from Paul, the pain went away. I also threw my back out twice. Each time, one Scenar treatment was enough to put it back to normal."

Stephanie Davies-Arai, Sculptor, Lewes, Sussex (Back Pain)

"I was rushed to hospital on three occasions and given four strong painkillers including morphine. I finally collapsed at work in agony, unable to walk. After 10 daily treatments with Paul, I was able to stop the painkillers and drive 80 miles to a work event."

Six months followup: "I'm still pain free."

Phil Turtle, Company Director, Brighton  (Fracture, Post Surgery)

"I broke the humerus bone in my arm and had it operated on, in January 2014. I then had frequent Scenar and pulsed electromagnetic field treatments from Paul Lowe and quickly regained use of the arm. Five weeks after the operation, I saw my consultant and he was obviously shocked at how 'back to normal' my arm was at such an early stage."

Dolores Goodey, School Teacher,  Newhaven, Sussex  (Chronic Whiplash Pain)

"It works, and I tried everything. I have more energy and I'm sleeping well. I used to get aches all the way down my back but not now. I'm also impressed that the treatments had such long lasting effects."
