We are here with the lovely Mrs Brooks.She may be in too much pain to treat. Mrs Brooks is a unique patient where we can not lay her down to adjust her because she gets quite a bit of neck, shoulder and low back pain. But just because we can’t lay her on her stomach because it increases her pain doesn’t mean we can’t treat her. So we are going to do some manual therapy on her neck and shoulders. We are going to use a couple instruments just to try to regain mobility, increase her function and to make her feel a little better. Alright so I want you to look up and down for me 5 times. What I am doing is putting pressure on her trapezius muscles. She is going through a range of motion and it is stretching those muscles out. That doesn’t hurt too bad does it? Okay we are going to turn your head and go up and down. Down and up just like that 5 times. one, two, three, four, five. Okay let’s do this side 5 times. One, two,up and down a little more, there you go, three, four,one more, five. Alright so now we take this hand and come all the way up as best you can 5 times. One, two, three, four, five. So what we are doing is trying to loosen up these trapezius muscles, all of her back and shoulder muscles. Because I feel it. You feel it all through don’t you? Yeah. And that will make her neck move better. All the way up 5 times. One, two, three, four, five. Good. Okay touch your belly and your back for me 5 times. One, two, three, four, five. Do you feel that all the way to your mid back? I feel it, it don’t hurt as bad as the other way. One, chin up for me, two, three, four, five. Front, arm straight. Touch your knee and straighten your arm out. One, two, three, four, five. Now we are going to touch your stomach and touch your back. One, two, three, four, five. I feel that but it feels good. Good type of pain right? Yeah because it helps a whole lot. next we are going to use just a vibrating instrument, some Chiropractors might know what it is. All we are going to do is vibrate these joints to try to break up any scar tissue. We are breaking up that scar tissue and loosening the joint up and allows for better range of motion and better motion, better flexibility. And it helps me sleep better. Sleep a little better too right? Mmmm Hmmm. My bed is propped up. It helps. It helps a whole lot. I actually have to wake myself up now instead of getting up at 2 o clock in the morning. You get into a deeper sleep so the Chiropractic care is helping. This is an industrial size massager. We get a lot of comments online that it looks like something you buy at Home Depot. It probably does look something like that but it works so well so we are going to use it. What we are doing is giving her mild fascial release, we are loosening the muscles. It brings blood flow to the surface of the muscles to let some nutrients go in there. It aids in the healing process. This is probably the best part of the adjustment. So the next thing we are going to do is have her seated since she can’t lay down. We are going to do some electric stim on her low back and apply some heat to help to give her some relief. If you have an questions or comments please message me and hope you enjoyed this. Talk to you soon.
