A 32 year old man working as a nurse in the ER was complaining of stinging pain in the subtalar joint after playing a soccer game the day before wearing new shoes. His pain was so bad he couldn’t step on his foot. I was going to give him a shot of cortisone intra-articularly when I decided to test him for an IRT pattern that was present as well as Nociceptor Stimulation-Blocking Technique (IPR Technique.) Treatment as described resulted in 100% pain relief instantly. He asked me if I performed hypnosis.
