(light upbeat music) – Ooh. – Okay. (light upbeat music) (light upbeat music) – Let’s see what’s going on here. Wow! I already can see the asymmetry. So you feel the pain, right… – Yeah, mostly in my lower back and my mid-back. And from my mid-back
it radiates to my neck, and then my lower back. It goes up my back, and then down my spine and into my tailbone. – Oh, down into your tailbone? Okay. You said you’ve been having pain for, like, 10, whatever, 10+ years?
– Yup. – Is that this pain or this pain? I originally thought was… – It was this pain, the lower back pain. – Got it. – But recently, my
mid-back has been hurtin’. – Okay, so it just kinda starts here and kinda goes down there,
– Yeah. – And this started happening
how many years ago? – About five, four-five years ago. – And then this is… – This is more like, within the last year or two. – Year or two?
– Yeah. – So it’s been traveling up? – Yup. So, if you you weren’t on the medication, it really shoot
– I prob… – I probably feel like a
seven or eight right now. That’s what I was right before I came, or this morning, I should say. – Okay, and it’d be really
shooting down into… – Yeah. Into the groin? – Into the groin area. – Got, it, okay. Do you know activities, by the way, really starts shooting this way? ‘Coz you said sometimes
it shoots down your butt, and then sometimes it shoots this way. – Yeah, mainly like, when I’m on my feet, walking too much, or doing my normal day-to-day activities. That’s when it starts. Because I’m super flat-footed also. – So, that’s when it starts hurting. – Sitting also hurts? – Yeah, it’s starting to hurt, like, this knot right here. – So the reason why that happens is because your pelvis is actually taut. So when we look at your spine, just from top down, this side is a lot flatter, which means this is actually rotated out. So it sprains up, and
you keep walking on it, the muscles here seize up. That’s why you get that
golf ball over there, that spasm. Is that painful? – It ain’t comfortable! (laughs)
– Okay. Does that reproduce some of the pain? – No – Okay, come up to this side. Not really? – It’s just tight. – Okay, so still the same thing. This is a lot flatter than this side. This side is a lot bulkier. You can actually see
it on the video later, but, this side is a lot
bulkier than this side. So you have a lot of asymmetry going on, even all through your back. Let me see how you walk really quick. ‘Coz I know walking reproduces the pain. So let’s just check that out real quick. (background voice) – [Chiropractor] Did you
know you swing that leg out, quite a bit? – I guess I kick this one out more, to the, kick it out, or… Yeah.
– You definitely do. (background conversation) – [Chiropractor] I see a big difference. – Yeah. – Let’s get you back in there. When you feel the pain on the neck, Do you feel that more on the
left side or the right side? – Oh, left side. – Everything’s on the left side? – Yeah. – Your whole weight is on your left side! (laughs) Is it more all over up
here, or more down here? – More down, yeah, down. – Okay And the pain that you have is right there? – Yup. – That’s why we’re getting a reading! Your spine should be over here, but it’s actually off over here. The point is with x-rays, it’s (mumbles) to be careful. There’s something right there, actually. Okay. Right there. Today we’ll probably just work on this pelvis rotation, but, getting you back in the sight-line. – Ooh. – Okay. Sorry. – Yeah
(laughs) – I think I found the spot. Okay. So, I’ll try not… I’m just going to feel
the other parts in it. This is the other part of the joint? – Yeah. – Those are all bad, huh? I’m gonna go a little further down. So the whole thing is really bad, huh? – Yeah, it’s just, tender. – Hm, okay. If we go on the other side, a little bit too, but not as much? – As much, yeah. – Over here, this whole joint is swollen. So I’m trying to see what
part of the joint is swollen, but your whole joint is swollen. Whether I’m at the top of the joint or the bottom of the joint, it’s just, all, like, super tender for you. So, typically, it’s usually
at the top of the joint or the bottom of the joint, when it, kind of, sprains
in this direction. So, when it drops, or, kinda does that. But if it sprains outward, which is basically what it’s doing, it’s spraining outward. If that’s the major
direction that sprains, the whole joint gets inflamed too. So, we’ll have to kinda close that gap. But the other part that
I’m concerned about is how you’re swinging off over here. So, it’s super tender
at even these two-ones. Actually, you were really
jumping when I went on this one. Which is basically where
it starts pivoting over to the left side. So eventually we wanna close that gap. – Ooh!
– Right there. Is that right where around it hurts? – Yeah, it’s one of the
problem areas, yeah. – Yeah. So as we get down here… So we go here and it kinda, indents right here, where we get a reading. So, if I poke on that piece of swelling, even on the other side, that’s painful, right? – Yeah. – Not too bad here, right? – Not too bad, yeah. – And there’s the next nerve down, right here, yeah. And that is two-six right there. Okay. So when I poke on even the joint, it hurts, right? – Yeah. – Little painful here, right?
– Yup – Okay, so this is your C7. That’s where I’m also getting
another reading over here, but it’s not bothering you too much today. – No. – What we’re gonna do today, is actually, we’re gonna adjust over here, and we’re gonna adjust down there. So, in our approach, we don’t just select four
or five things at once, because we’re making such precise shifts. The beauty is in the fall-out, so in the next visit, when we measure, we wanna see what changed, right? I’m gonna be pulling
this pelvis around, okay? So, it’s a little different from what you’ve gotten before. I just wanna feel what part of the joint I need to (mumbles). What I’m gonna do is I’m gonna roll you a little between, I’m not gonna let you fall off, Okay?
– Okay. So it puts you into position where I actually pull
this hip around, okay? (whooshing thud) – Oh! – Different, right? – Yup. Feel a little bit better. Feels, feel like, it’s kinda… Throbbing right now. – Good. So what this does is it allows your body to sink in, so we can get precise into here. Fine. – Whoop. – It’s tender? – Yeah.
– And… Sixth. That’s really tender, right? Just, can you relax a little bit more, I’m gonna give this a
little push down, okay? (snap) – Oh
– Oh! (laughs) Numb! (laughs) – Oh! Oh, that one did it. It feels actually pretty good right now. Feels really good. I’m not feeling any tightness or pain right now. – Good. Come on back. Your leg is springing out less. I mean, it’s still asymmetrical, but it’s definitely more than what it was. – It’s not as bent? – Yeah. Yep, you still have
something going on over here. This is a lot better. The spike in information is definitely calming down over there. That should feel better. Your mid-back for sure, and then your lower back, it should feel better. I mean, we’re not
expecting 100% after today, but it should feel significantly better. – Definitely it’s feeling better from this morning. – Other than that, not too bad, right? – Yeah. Cool, thank you! – Yeah, let me know how that does the next time you come in. It should feel quite a bit better.
