(upbeat music) – Please show me. – I feel it right here. – Okay. – And it kind of radiates down this way. Right now it stops up here.
– Okay, but it’s – But when I’m standing, it
goes about halfway down my calf. – Halfway down your calf? Well, you said to your
big toe, too, right? – And my big toe goes numb. – Okay. – Especially when I’m driving, and my foot’s kind of up this way and I’m sitting a little
reclined, it hurts, and my toe goes numb. – Got it. – Just the big toe. – Just the big toe, okay. And sometimes the left toe, too. – Sometimes the left toe. – But not numb, just kinda that waking – That tingly, yeah. – Got it, okay. But right now, you mainly feel it here. And where is it kind of on a
scale of zero to 10 right now? – Right now, sitting it’s
about a four or five. – Okay. – But if I’m trying to do
something, like pick up my son. He’s five; he’s about 40
pounds, which is easy for me. It just shoots right
down, and I have to stop and take a breath, ’cause
it’s just like unbearable. – Got it, okay. – Yeah. It’s like labor pains in the wrong place. Yeah.
(physician laughs) Like I have to catch my
breath, because it hurts. – Okay, and that was
right after the accident. – The following morning. – The following morning, okay. – I didn’t feel it the same day. I went to a seminar,
came home, went to sleep. In the morning I got up,
and I couldn’t get out; I had to roll myself outta bed. – Really? – It was shooting too hard, yeah. It was just, I don’t know
what happened overnight. – Oh man, okay. – But I went to my doctor, and he said sometimes it just takes a day for the inflammation
– It takes more than a day. – No, no, the following day. – Oh, yeah, yeah. – After the surgery for that
pain to kind of settle in. – Right. – But two, three weeks now. – Three weeks? And just not even going anywhere? – No change. – No change, okay. – No change. – And is it worse in the
morning or in the evening? – It makes no difference. – It doesn’t matter, even sleeping? – Yeah, I can’t sleep. I can’t sleep at any position I take, whether I’m on my back, on
my left side, my right side, stomach, face down. There’s no relief. Sometimes if I turn over in my sleep, the pain will wake me up. – And it can go to like an
eight or nine out of 10, so that’s pretty bad. – Yeah, I mean, it’s– – Is that every day you feel
it somewhere, some activities? – Throughout the day I
will feel it several times. – Got it. – Eight to nine level pain. Yeah. – And then, it’s usually when
you’re picking up something, or is it? – It could be like, I’ll do it right now. I’m gonna hurt myself, but it’s all good. If I lean back like this,
it just shot me down. – When you lean back just like that now? – I just lean back. – Okay, and what
– And just that movement, that movement did something
in here, and, ooh. (laughs) Sorry. – Don’t hurt yourself. – So any weird movement like that, but if I brace myself with my muscles, I can hold myself from the pain. – Alright – So if I’m doing this, and
I’m leaning back, I’m okay. But if I’m just sitting
like a regular person and I just, I can’t. (laughs) – Got it. – It just, it shoots right down. It’s a big, stabbing kind of pain. – Got it. Okay. Okay. I’m just checking your neck. I know that’s not your biggest issue, even though you have that reverse curve and that degenerative process there. Okay, there is definitely
something going on right there. That’s tender back right here? – Yeah, that hurts. – That tender here? – Yeah (laughs) – Is it worse down here? – Yes, just above it was worse. – Right there. – Yeah – You sprained that right joint. So, this is your SI joint,
your sacroiliac joint. What happened in the
accident specifically? – I was stopped. The guy behind me stopped, and the guy behind him was going fast, and he couldn’t stop. He hit the guy behind me. Guy behind me hit me. – Oh man. – It was a strong impact because the guy behind me
pushed forward at least, I don’t know – Yeah
– This much. – I heard the first impact. I looked up, and I’m watching the guy. I’m bracing myself ’cause I’m like, “Is he gonna push into me? “Is he gonna push into me?”
– Yeah – I mean it’s all a
split second it happens, but all of that goes through your brain
– Yeah – Explaining it is longer
than it happens, but I was bracing myself. My leg was forward
– That’s why, yeah – ‘Cause I’m like
– Yeah – on the brake like, “Please
don’t move.” (laughs) – Got it. What happens is when you
extend your leg like that, typically this whole pelvis
shifts this right side, actually shifts down, right? – Yeah – And then the impact hits,
so it sprains it that way. This is your sacrum, right, and this is your pelvis. What happens is, if it’s
shifted down, it sprains at the very top, right?
– Uh huh – That’s why it’s so tender
there when I push that part. – That’s why it’s tender up here. – Yeah, so it went like that. Yeah, so, what we have
to do is shift that back so it doesn’t feel like that anymore. – Fix me. – Yeah. I wanna start this process over here ’cause sometimes, remember
the delayed (mumbles), started happening over here. So, if it was that bad of an accident, typically over here it starts spraining, which is it’s tender, right? – Yeah
– Yeah Okay, let me work on this
not as the primary thing, but it’ll help, okay? – Okay. – So, I’m gonna adjust your upper back. I’ll show you how I’m gonna do this, okay. – Okay – This is your first time
getting adjusted, right? – (laughs) I’m a virgin.
(physician laughs) Never had this happen to me. – Okay So, this upper back, it’s called your T1, I’m actually gonna be
pushing that forward. Okay?
– Okay – But you just have to
relax your right shoulder, and I’m gonna pivot that forward. (neck cracks) Good. Better? – (laughs) It’s like, you snapped my neck. (physician laughs) – Sort of, yes, but not so dangerous way. How’s that? – (laughs) Yeah – Cool. Not too bad, right? – No, no, no, no, not at all. – Now, let me actually work on this. – That was surprisingly okay. – Yeah, yeah, adjustments aren’t bad. I’m gonna get you on this side, so you’re gonna lie on your
left side facing that way. You didn’t just sprain this way, you sprained this way, too. So, what I’m gonna do is
actually push it this way and up. – Okay
– Exactly the opposite. And that’s typically why
there’s piriformis syndrome that’s over here. So we’re gonna adjust this
pelvis and shift it down, and also shift that up, okay?
– Okay – Have you just relax a little bit. I’m gonna roll you just a little bit, but I won’t let you fall out, okay? – Okay – Okay, just relax as I
get some leverage here. (lower back pops)
– Ooh! – Good (lady laughs) That was awesome. – That was? When I feel it (laughs) – Okay, come on up; let me help you up. – Oh. I feel some relief already. Yeah, I feel it. It’s there, but it’s a lot less. I get to stand up straight. – You couldn’t stand straight before? – I told you I was walking
like an old lady. (laughs) (physician laughs) – So you can stand straighter,
you can walk better? – Yeah, it’s less painful. I feel some relief. – It’s
(staff talking) a lot better into here. How’s the sitting? – I’m okay here right now.
– Okay – That level four pain, I don’t feel it. It’s like a one. – Good! – If I do this, oh I’m – I was gonna have you do that next, but you’re already doing it. (laughs) What? – What the hell did you do? (laughs) – What, tell me? (laughs) Just leave me hanging. – I feel it, but it’s
not like it was before. It’s not shooting me down. – It doesn’t go down into your leg? – It’s just a little bit here, ’cause I still feel it. It’s a little here, but
it’s not doing this here. – Good
– At all – Other than that, not too bad. Your first adjustments, how was it? – Cracking thing and I
don’t know what it was. It was cool. (laughs) Can I get up? – Yeah – Thank you – My pleasure. Any questions? – No – Questions, comments? – No, I’m just surprised, because I didn’t know what to expect, and that actually felt pretty good. (light instrumental music)
