Gonstead Helps Stabbing Shoulder and Back Pain


(gentle music) – Left shoulder, we got the
neck, we got the lower back. Let’s kind of go one by
one, so let’s start here, tenderness in the neck
and the shoulder, so. Can you show me where you have the pain? – Oh here, right here. – It’s right over here? – Yeah. – Right in this area? – Yeah. – Okay, so it doesn’t go much lower. – No, that whole area. – Oh just this whole, oh,
okay, the whole area, okay. Is it typically worse
more down here or up here? – More down there. – More down here, okay. Does anything in particular make it worse, like if you look down,
if you’re looking up, if you’re turning your head? Um, – No, it’s just there. – Just right there? – And to your left shoulder? – Yeah. – So, where in the shoulder, like over here or over here
or in the shoulder blade? What are we looking at? – Here. – Right over here? Okay, so it’s just isolated right here? – Yeah. – Does it go up at all or just… – Yes, it goes up to the neck, because I usually have my head like this. – Okay. How far up? Does it go all the way like here? – It’s right here. – Just up to here? Okay, so it doesn’t go up to here? – No. – Okay. Do you get any headaches too? – Yeah, the top right here. – The top of the head? Do you get them in the
morning, towards the evening, towards the middle of the day? – Middle of the day to the night. – Middle of the day to the night. And it’s only on the top, it’s not left or right side? – Top. – Top? – Top. The whole top. – Lastly, lower back. Can you show me where you’re getting it? It’s on the right side? – Yeah, it’s over here. – Okay. So the right side, right there. – There. Yeah, exactly there, yeah. – Okay. Does it bother
you more if you walk or if you sit? – Either. – Either way? – Yeah. – Oh, okay. What in particular can make it worse? – Well if I sit too long. If I walk or if I run and like for like a really fast sprint. That (inaudible) feeling. – Okay. – And then, if I don’t stretch, it will hurt. – If you don’t stretch the area. – Yeah. – What about like bending forward or like if you lean over towards one side, like further to the other? Does that bother it at all? – Um, actually I find it comfortable to lean toward. – Lean towards (inaudible) – My right side, yeah. It feels like there is pressure being put. – Aha. – Yeah, and so it feels
like there is relief. – So that means if you lean towards the other side. – It feels like it’s being pulled. – It’s being pulled? – Yeah. – Yeah, because at least for your joint on the right, it’s the
way that it’s misaligned over here. It’s gone down this way, and it’s gone out this way. – Aha. – So when you lean and you go towards that, it feels better than when you go out this way because it’s already down like this. You feel that stretch (inaudible) – Yeah. – Okay, um, anything else
before we get started? – No. – All right. Remember the first time you came in we did a scan on you, the nerve scan? And this is going to be
almost like the same thing, but more pin point
where I need to find it. – Okay. – So let’s have you look straight. (buzzing device) Right there it seems. So you feel that like right about there? – Yeah. – Okay. Yip, right there. – That’s… – Pretty tender? – Yeah. – What about lower? – It feels like bone (inaudible) my disc kinda hurt. – All right, um (inaudible) – Yeah. – Okay. How long have
you had this pain for? All right. – Um, about a year and a half. – A year and a half? – Two? I keep on changing my story, don’t I? – (laughing) – A year and a half. – We’ll go with a year and a half. – Yeah. – All right. Let’s get you adjusted. So, and you’ve never been
adjusted before, right? – Never. – Okay. – I’m really scared. – (laughing) – I’ve seen these stories before. – I’ll walk you through the process, okay? So what I’m going to do is I’m going to (inaudible) to the left side over here. Bear your chin, move it this way. So what I’m not going to do is I’m not going to rotate and twist you all the way over here. – Okay. – What I’m going to do, is I’m going to push forward, up that way. Okay? – Okay. – So if you feel a pop, or if you feel a shift, that’s nothing really to be worried about. It’s just pressure being released. Okay, can you relax that left shoulder? (click) You okay? – That was weird. – That was weird. That spot should be right here. Roll you over towards me. Push right there. I’m not going to let you fall. Same thing. I’m going to push going forward, that way. Okay? Just relaxed that shoulder. We’ve got a little bit on the set up. Let’s see if we can get
a little bit more, okay? – Okay. – A little bit more. There we go. You good? – Yeah, yeah. – Good, you all right? – Yeah. – Okay, so with this one let your stomach sink as much as you can. Perfect. One, two, three, okay. So, stay right there. I’m just going to make sure your head is stable. Bring this strap over, and here. Just so that your head
doesn’t move back at all. So, on your breath out, I’m going to give a push going forward that way, okay? Deep breath in. Breath all out, and one more time. Big breath. Relax that stomach. Big breath one more time. Relax that stomach now. (click) There we go. (laughter) – What? – You’re all right? – Oh wow. Okay. – All right. Okay, walk around a little bit. Not too shabby for first time? – Not too shabby, yeah. (laughter) – I’m just like getting (inaudible) Feels different. – Yeah? – Yeah. – Okay, keep walking. – Okay. – How does your neck feel, and how does your lower back feel, how does the head feel? – Well there is no more
cracking like this. Usually it would crack in life. I would usually look
up and it would crack. – Uh-ha – So, I don’t know what you did there. (laughter) – We did something right. – Yeah. – What about the head? The lower back and the head? It might still be a little bit painful, which is fine. – It’s a little bit painful, but it feels like something, yeah, it feels different. I feel a lot more upright and stable. – Good. – Especially, it feels
like the ball in my feet is actually doing it’s job. (laughter) – This is a great first time, huh? (laughter) – Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah. I’ve never had Chiro. – That’s moving better. Still moving towards
is usually comfortable. Moving away, not too bad? – Yeah, a little bit better, yeah. – Good. Okay, perfect. All right, you all right? – Yeah. I’m good man. – That’s good. It’s all set. Now, in the first month of care, ’cause typically in the
more intensive phase, and you also, this is your first time being at a Chiropractor. It’s pretty normal if you do feel any kind of soreness, or, hopefully you don’t, but if you do feel any soreness in areas that we adjust, so like the neck, the lower back, or even that (inaudible) from your upper back to
your neck over there. It’s pretty normal for
our patients to feel that, just because it’s like, I mean, you already know, like working out for the first time, so your joints have to get used to it, and also it’s a more intensive fix itself. So if you do feel that type of soreness, hopefully you don’t, but if you do, just put some ice on those areas and you should feel a little bit… It should bring down that
swelling a little bit more, okay? – Right. – Um, other than That, try to stay as consistent as you can so we can keep getting good movement, to moving forward, and also try not to do anything crazy, In terms of exercising wise. Like lifting things,
or that kind of stuff. – Yeah. – Just be careful because we want to, so, the first phase is just making sure that we’re adjusting well, and getting the bones in
the slots they need to be, and moving well. Then after that we need to make sure they’re stable and they
stay in those places. What was that? – Um, no I was just if feels like my head is not really stable. – Ah-ha. – Maybe it’s less stable, more stable? I dunno. – Well um, we’re loosening (inaudible) especially because, when your body is so used
to a certain position for so long, it gets stuck in that position so when you start moving things around, moving the joints around, your body has to get used to it. Yeah, okay. So, other than that,
any questions from you? – No. – All right then. You’re all set. – Okay, thank you. – Yeah – No problems. – That’s a bet? (laughter) (gentle music)
