Patterson leaves the U.S. for experimental medical treatment

Washington pitcher John Patterson, who has been suffering from a nerve injury in his right elbow, is leaving the U.S. for experimental medical treatment.

Patterson is not headed south to seek help from a curandera however. He's going to Canada. Patterson won't say what the treatment is, just that involves a series of injections.

Check for the results in your next copy of the Canadian Journal of Weird Experimental Medicine.

Huston Street just completed some Toronto treatment, too, apparently with success.

Saw the title on the sidebar, thought Corey Patterson had found a country that thought it could de-suckify him. Maybe someday.

The treatment that Ken's talking about in 1 was covered in the paper today:

The nut graph from Susan Slusser: "The A's closer, who has missed six weeks with an irritated ulnar nerve, did 1 1/2 hours a day in a hyperbaric chamber for oxygen therapy, a half hour a day of injection (needle) therapy, along with laser therapy and homeopathic treatment. He also received chiropractic and massage treatments and worked out extensively, including track workouts."

The punchline: "The treatments also helped Street overcome his dislike of small enclosed spaces and needles."

I should hope so.

Obviously, they're injecting him with adamatium in order for him to go Weapon-X on the Nationals, reclaiming the team for Canada. Or something.

I wonder if it's prolotherapy.

6.   Sam DC "Patterson will deal with chiropractors, be in a hyperbaric chamber, have homeopathic injections, lasers and frequency-specific microcurrents. These type of treatments are not approved in the United States."

So, essentially, Patterson is going to a high-tech curandera?
