(warm inspirational music) – So it’s like a good, solid year of that. I know with the stress level, it’s just gotten worse and worse. (pops) Oh (blank), oh my God. – You okay?
– Yeah. – How’s your neck?
– That was amazing, yeah. – The main thing was that you’re having, say, how do you something like that. Oh, I’m sorry, I mean the pain
that was on the left side. – Yeah, it was just in my neck. – Yeah, the pain in your left side. – In my lower left side, yeah. – And then you said it gets worse ’cause of stress at work, right? – Yeah, it would just like
get really, really tight, and just depends, like,
you know, how much, like, stress levels I have
that day or that week. Yeah, just, if it gets worse, and then it’s like I’m
just constantly like holding my neck like this, trying to find it and get relief. But I haven’t been able to– – Havin’ it together. Okay, and you’re a nurse, that right? – Yes.
– Gotcha. – Yeah, I work a lot of long hours, especially if I do, which I normally do is work a lot of double shifts, so I’m on my feet like a good 18 hours? Maybe during my break, two breaks, so– – I remember you told me that. – I am on my feet a lot, and so probably my posture
isn’t the best, also. – Gotcha. – So, I’ve been working
as a nurse a little bit, like a year and about six months now. So it’s like a good, solid year that I know with the stress level, it’s just gotten worse and worse. – Can you show me again
where you’re feeling? – This is like, all of this, down near right here, and I just have like a lot of tension. – So from here down like over here? – Yeah, over like my shoulder blade. – Gotcha, gotcha, got it. So I know work, obviously, the stress makes it worse, but is there any like movement, like turning a certain way, bending a certaIn way that makes it worse? Or that you can’t do one or the other? – Not so much, it’s just like, when I’m trying to like stretch my neck, like just doing this, it’s
just really, really tight, like all of this right here. – Right. – Like this whole area, and then it kinda goes into back here like right there too. – Got it.
– Yeah. – Okay, gotcha. – I guess just like
more like neck movement. – Like just in general? – Doing this. – Okay. – It’s always tighter on my left side. – On the left side, so if you go, if you bend toward towards this side, you feel like– – I feel already. – Stretch like really.
– Yeah. – Okay. Besides this over here, which we’re definitely gonna address, what were the other
things that were goin’ on, just so you can remind me? – Yeah, so it’s like usually my mid back? – Right over this way? – It’s just like mainly over here, especially when I’ve been
standing at the end of my shift, like it’s maybe nine,
nine o’clock I’m finishing my last med hour pass. I really have to like
kinda crack my back– – Push yourself up, yes. – And I just, my whole back will kinda, I try to find any, like, relief. – Got it.
– Yeah. – And in the lower back as well? Or was that, was that not a problem? – A little bit, a little
on the lower back. And I can never, I’ve always
felt really tight right here. – So it’s more like, so it’s
right in the middle here, and this transition. – Yeah.
– Okay. Ooh, okay, that swings very far. So I get a reading here but it goes way off
to the right side there. Okay. Okay, so your neck, whole neck
is pretty much all inflamed. But it gets worse from right up there. – Yeah. – [Chiropractor] Sorry, okay. – Feeling that little pressure
with that as you do it. – [Chiropractor] You can feel it? – Yeah.
– Okay. – It’s just like a whole sen– It’s like I’m just sensitive to it. – [Chiropractor] Okay,
reading it right there. And it swings right there. Okay. – [Man] Yeah, still pretty crazy. – Yeah. – That’s a little bit
at the table, got worse. – [Man] Yeah, I went to see him in late– – Right there. – And then can you point again where you have the middle point? – It’s like over here. – Hold still. You’re a huge over the top right here. So, I’m just gonna maneuver you, I can adjust you. Hold right there. That hurting? – Yeah. – All right, so you haven’t
been adjusted before, right? First time? – No, it’s my first time. (laughing) – You have a big sigh. All right, well, I’ll walk you through it before I get started, okay?
– Okay. – So, bring your head back here. All right, so, what I’m gonna do, gonna move your head a little bit aside. Okay. Feel up here. Made contact with your head there. Gonna move your head a little this way. Okay? So, what I’m gonna do here is I’m not gonna twist
your neck like this. So I’m basically gonna be pushing it into the shallow this way.
– Okay. – Basically towards your– (rattling) So. So you might hear a shift, You might, well, sorry,
you might feel a shift, and you might hear a click or a pop, but that’s just pressure being released. – Okay. – Okay, so, push. Go right here. (pops)
– Oh (blank). Oh my God. – You okay? – Yeah, that was amazing, yeah. – How’s your neck? – It’s good. – You okay? – Yeah, it feels good. – That’s good. Okay, we got two more adjustments, okay? – Okay. (pop)
– There we go. – Oh!
– Got it. – Okay.
– That was it. – All right. – Can you get?
(laughing) You all right? – That’s crazy!
– Yeah. – All right, well, we got one more. – Okay.
– One more craziness, okay? (laughing) Now here we go. Okay, so, take a big breath in. And on your breath out, we’ll give this a push forward, okay? So breath out. (breathing) Good, one more time, big breath. And all the way out. (breathing) Good stomach sync. (thunk) Nice. That’s it.
– Okay. Normally, it’s just my
neck gets it, to me, it’s just like, I don’t, it’s like that right here, it’s just a little better along the– – A lot better? – Yeah, that, which is turning
a lot really big things. And my body now. Feel a little bit more loose. Yeah.
– Okay. – And I do feel slightly less tense. – Yeah.
– Yeah. – That’s fine, it’s only the
first adjustment, yeah, yeah. – Right, right, the main here although that feels
unbelievable right here. – That’s good. – It’s amazing. – That was a big adjustment, too. – Yeah! That was loud, oh my! (laughing) – That’s good, okay. – Yeah, that was good. – Better, now bend your
head over to the right. How’s that? How about this? – A lot less pain. – A lot less?
– Yeah. – Good. – Like, normally I could kinda feel it, but I don’t feel it, like, especially right here. I feel like the connecting
muscle here really, really tight. Now I don’t, I feel the
difference right there already. – That’s good.
– Yeah. – Yeah, ’cause that muscle, that’s called, it goes actually from here, and it goes all the way down to that out to the backside of
the shoulder right there. – I didn’t know how I was gonna feel– – Yeah. – And so, and then, it’s
like, it’s my first time, so– – Yeah, no, and that’s fine. I mean, even, ’cause you’ve had this for around a year, a
little bit less than a year at this point, so, obviously,
it’s not gonna 100%. I mean, you’re gonna feel a lot better, but it’s not gonna be 100% until, you’re just in the process of, you know, you still have more to go. But that’s the exciting part is that we still have more to go, right? – Exactly. – Stay as consistent as
you can in terms of care, just so we can get good momentum in terms of like getting
things going forward, okay? – Will do. (warm inspirational music)
