Leg numbness and chronic low back pain – after spine surgery

He looked in the mirror and was surprised to see what he saw in front of him…

His upper body leaning to his right, while his neck leaned to his left, and his head rotated to the same side. Clearly he was putting far more weight on his right foot – the scales showed that – even though he was trying not to put much weight on the right.

His right leg was mostly numb and had been for several months after taking a fall in which he landed square on his behind. So far, there weren’t many answers from anyone why his leg had gone numb.

Making the situation more complicated was the fact that he received a surgery for spinal fusion about a year prior. The surgery felt like a success for quite some time. But after his fall his leg went numb, and experienced a chronic, deep pinching in his lower right.

He was evaluated at Life In Alignment Chiropractic after his wife found information on how we can shift the body’s structure gently. She was interested in seeing if he could be helped. And only way to know was to see if his symptoms seems to be explained by his body breakdown.

And based on how he stood, it seemed there was a good chance we could unlock his body, and bring his upper body back to the center, taking some pressure off his leg and his low back.

What happened in the end? Watch the 3 minute video above to see what happened as gentle pressure applied to a few places in his head, neck, and shoulder created an immediate shift in his spine and his symptoms.
