Dr. Del Torto
August 1, 2001
I live an active life on Catalina Island.
On my day off I was enjoying myself at
the beach surfing. I had a small wipe
out, and in the process of going down,
my surfboard and my foot met. I am not
sure what all took place, but I crawled
out of the water and found a large bump
on the outside of my foot just in front
of my ankle bone. I was sure that it was
broken. I drove home in excruciating pain
and put ice on my foot right away. I made
an appointment at Dr. Del Torto's Catalina
office for that afternoon. At the office
the doctor took two x-rays of my foot.
The x-rays showed no sign of a fracture
or any other problems.
The doctor told me about the Acuscope
and Myopulse treatment. He said it would
repair the damaged tissue and speed up
the healing process. I was all for that.
The treatment only took 25 minutes and
was very relaxing. There was a small amount
of tingling while the Myopulse and Acuscope
was being used, but there was no discomfort.
Once the treatment was over I could feel
an immediate difference. I was able to
walk out of the office with a small limp
and the pain was not as sharp. The bump
had gone down in size considerably also.
The next morning I went in for another
treatment. It was the same treatment with
five minutes of Ultrasound at the end.
I can honestly say I felt a huge difference
when I left the office. I was able to
walk with out a limp and the lump was
all most completely gone. There was no
discoloration around the area, which was
a big shock to me. As bad as it hurt the
day before I thought for sure I would
have a bruise or some kind of mark from
With the life style I live I feel a lot
more at easy knowing there is something
out there that could speed up the heaiing
process when I do goof up. I would hope
other people would use this treatment
for any accident or for acute or chronic
pains, because it really works!
I was out surfing and playing frisbee
on the beach three days after the accident,
that shocked all my surfing buddies after
seeing my foot.
- I work for the Catalina Fox Recovery
Program, and we had an injured fox who
had hurt his leg in a fight. I told the
treating veteranarian about my Acuscope
experience, and how it rapidly healed
my sprained ankle - so Dr. Wynn and I
brought "the patient" to see
Dr. Del Torto. Well, let me tell you,
history repeated itself, and the fox responded
very rapidly to Acuscope/Myopulse Therapy,
just as I did. In no time, he was back
to normal and running around with all
of his little fox friends.
Job Dr. Adam and many thanks to you and
your Acuscope machine!
