My man, how you doing doing well welcome back from Coachella right. Thank you. This is my first time. First time ever bro there you go got dope. So what happened? Man, you read Coachella having a good time and too good of a time got locked out of my place happens and maybe a little bit too much.
Maybe my favorite beverages and I jumped over the fence to like let myself in the other way of the gate, got ta get in and I got hit. And then I fell on my bud and I like bruised this side of my butt yeah and then I worked out and I kind of like felt weird in my leg and then like went to bed last night and my right side of my leg like.
But I guess, like my muscle just was like I mean your muscle, like spasms or twitches. Yes, all night like which to old age yeah. Oh my it was so uncomfortable. It kept you up, yeah cut me out and then today I woke up.
Everything was fine. Then I like was sitting down doing a podcast and like same thing when I sit down and just started like pulsing, and it just kind of been on and off today, but got you it. Ought you to check that out what usually happens when we get that type of type of thing here is what happened is likely? You fell onto your sacrum or to your hip and this bone here, the sacrum.
Let’s. Take this off right here. This may have shifted a little bit and then what that does is it puts pressure on the nerves coming out of the lower back and the sacrum, and basically those nerves go down here that’s, the sciatic nerve, so it’s, Like I’m good, it’s, not good yeah right.
So what we’re gonna do is basically figure out. Is there an area or spines out of alignment? Now here’s, a cool thing? If your spine is in alignment, we leave it alone like there’s, no reason right, but if it’s out of alignment and it’s, pressing on a nerve like dahling, can it causing pain or that pulsing can Actually radiate all down the leg right could cause like numbness in the leg was like my mom.
Has this issue yeah times people have that issue and then a lot of times. What happens we see is that, for example – and I hope it’s – not this, but that’s. We’re gonna check. Hopefully you fell and you shifted something out of place, so we can align it again.
You’ll, be good to go so that’s. What happens is this disc down here because of a lot of sitting. You know you know just the stresses of life can wear down and that gets to be like almost bone-on-bone, and you might not even know it.
You’re, just looking right and then you fall and you’re like oh, and it was just enough like it’s like that last straw that broke the camel’s right right. It’s just enough to bring it out where you’re like dude.
What’s going on? So if it is that, then we may need more like corrective tight care of it. Either way we’ll help you out cool yeah. So what we’re gonna do in a moment we’re gonna look at your spine and when we look at your spine, we’re.
Looking for two things, movement and pain, the reason I’ll show you tell you is like this: the spine should move so just like all the joints in our body move. If your spine moves again, we leave it alone.
If it’s stuck that’s, the misalignment, we call it a sub luxation and tell me find that we got to get a handle because it can cause tons of problems. The the second way is we’re gonna take some pictures of your spine, some x-rays, okay, we just see it roll, so it’s out of alignment.
Like you see it is it. I mean I’ve. Never done this yeah so easy! No don ‘ T worry about me doing this bro. It’s, hardly 15 years well, 15 years, brother, spines and mines. What is it common like throughout life? I guess to have issues yeah it’s.
Super common, like what happens? Is this a lot of times like if you’re at a cavity, yeah? Okay, so like? How did you know you’d? Have a cavity, so you know I didn’t even know yeah. So sometimes you go to the dentist you’re like I, don’t even know, and they’re like yeah.
You do let’s fill it, so they did an exam. They probably took an extra today right. So we do the same thing cuz. You might not know your spines out of alignment. Have you ever had a toothache, yeah yeah? What you do that’s when you’re like I got a problem fix it like around it up, or what have you so sometimes people come in in that situation, which you you know you’re kind of in A little bit of discomfort right now or they have a problem and that’s, where sometimes we find things too.
So hopefully there wasn’t a pretty existing issue. Hopefully it’s, a minor thing, but we’ll. Do an exam look for motion, look for pain, so shake my hand. Does that hurt no, of course not watch this? Does that hurt? No no hurt me.
Does the joints don’t hurt man? I saw her when we press on. So if we press on your spine and you’re like oh, like we know there’s, a problem there, it’s, swollen. Okay, make sense just do this, let’s, go ahead and take off your shirt.
I’m still working on. It, though, set the phone over there all right, so shoulders relaxed yeah. You can actually bring forward this way and we’re gonna start right here. We will work our way down, so we’re gonna start.
Looking for motion so from left to right that’s, moving real good right to left moving pretty good, you want it right exactly row, the 24 vertebrae that move in the spine and if they don’t move and don’t doesn’t groove man right there, chief four five a little bit stuck there right.
There, t6 those nerves go to the stomach in the liver. Oh, you have been working out, huh champion, moving pretty good, pretty good, pretty good as we get down to the lower thoracic. This is moving good.
That’s stuck right there. You feel that no so moving good see. This is why I’m. The cargo man yeah, okay, lower back moving, pretty good and then, as we get down here, I can tell where the pain is. Yes, sir yeah anything there yeah let’s, go a little lower right here.
Any pain there at all yeah, so this is l5. This is the bottom lumbar vertebra right there yeah, so these nerves, bro they go to the buttocks, the hamstrings, the legs, the feet, the big toe, the bladder, the reproductive organs and the large intestine, which is water, absorption of vitamin formation and feces formation right, sacroiliac, joint And your left so both joins.
This is a little bit stuck your right. One feels and they’re, both pretty stuck man. So you definitely you. You fell right onto your hips right yeah, I mean yeah, no bueno man, we’re gonna try a muscle test, real quick.
So you keep your foot like this and push back with your heel. Mark push push push yep. Just like you did perfect and then right here, this one push back, push push push okay, and then we’re gonna go in this way.
So you push in this way towards me yep, just like that cool than this one here. So your muscles are firing properly, pull in champion level. Go to my face up. I will check their back while we’re here, so that you feel the difference.
So like no pain, all the way down we get bruiser. Is it well that’s? What we’re gonna find out, so usually, if the vertebrae hurts, when you press on it, it’s, usually not so much a bruise. It can be there’s, usually stuck out of alignment God.
If that’s the case I mean that’s. What we do that yeah look at this! You got stuff on the ceiling and on I ‘ Ve. Never had this done my man, so look right here. Super tight right there on the left side, a little more mobile leave that it you see how it moved already.
Yeah had a crack, sir right there, okay, so a little tight up top, mainly not lower area. Tighten your abs come on up man all right, so we Jeff, we confirm the presence of spot on. This alignment looks like mainly the lower back.
We’re gonna take some pictures and then we’ll, be able to say what’s going on and then I’ll, be good cold. Once you bro bro all right. We’re gonna run to the back. You take some pics of the spine. My man welcome back.
Am I good yeah remember we were talking about that. It could be one of two things. It could be that basically you fell. You should fit the spine out of alignment and it’s, a new issue, or it could be a pre-existing issue where there was an issue there, a little bit of degeneration – and I kind of push yourself over that this is the second one says: Not good it’s, not great.
It’s, not great right, your whole 2525, so there’s, definitely a little bit of degeneration in there. The good news is: we see this thing all the time in the office. We can handle it. Okay, I’m, just trying to think right now, like a lot of times when I go like this, I’ll crack my neck.
When I’m on the treadmill to doing like incline. When I go like this, I open my back always cracks yeah, that’s, it that’s, a dead giveaway that you’re out of alignment. I’ve made an alignment okay because, basically you, like you kind of naturally, no you’re, like wait.
A minute like my neck, wants to move right yeah. My back wants to move your body’s. Talking to you that’s, I mean what we do. Is we do it professionally, so that you don’t have that urge that’s? It awesome thanks doc, all right so uh.
So let’s. Take a look all right so here’s the neck now starting up with the neck, since you mentioned that you’re, always doing the self adjusting. This is your neck from behind one question: is it straight doesn’t like it, so when the spine is out of alignment, what the take home message is man.
You say you’re supposed to move around. Yes, you’re right, you’re right, a spine is supposed to move, but when the spine and when you’re standing still and your spine is crooked. Think of it like this think of the tie.
Real men wear pink, bra yeah they go to as high as your spinal cord and when your spine is straight, your cord is relaxed if your spines out of a line of the court is tense so all day man, your spine has tension on it, which we Call no bueno, okay right, so we want to get that straightened out next.
Here we look at your mid-back, you see pretty straight, but there’s a little bit of a bar there, so we’re gonna adjust you to bring you back into alignment now. The lower back from the from behind looks pretty straight, looks pretty right on okay, that’s, awesome that’s, where I got hurt that’s.
Yes, sir! Well, you got hurt was right down here, where you’re. Having this, you fell on your left side, you’re experiencing symptoms down here, the nerve that comes out of l5 and the the sacrum right here like we talked about.
That goes right here, the sciatic nerve, and that’s, where you’re having the symptoms yeah in that buttock area right. So this bone is difficult to tell here, but that’s. Why we measure is rotated back one way and that’s, gonna put pressure on those nerves, okay, and so here we found something else check this out.
This is you from the side you’re red and you’re supposed to be yellow. Oh so you’re. You’re, stuck in what we call. Is it so Ben yeah exactly so you’re, you’re, stuck in what’s called a hyperextension with a posterior translation.
So you’re. You’re back more than you should be, and then you’re, like leaning back, which I can’t, do too much a little fall over right, so you’re, stuck like that, so that’s not good number one, because it wears out the disc, so we kind of zoomed in here and did what’s called a spot shot, and you see the disc right here.
You see here how it’s really small. At the back, it’s almost bone on bone yeah. What’s supposed to be there? Yeah it’s supposed to be disk space like this yeah it’s supposed to be like it’s supposed to be wider in the front small in the back.
But, instead of being like this, you’re like this. Why is this one little yeah, so that’s? Actually an old fracture in the bottom of your vertebrae from my landscape? Yes, skateboard bike, something jumping over yeah right, so you that’s, actually an old fracture that dented in what we call the end plate of the bone.
It’s called as schmorl’s. Note! If you ever hear that term, but what is concerning you see this big big hole right here, that’s where the nerve comes out, so it’s supposed to be big and round like that.
You see right here how it’s, much smaller right, so that’s again, no bueno! So stick your finger out right. So, if you’re the nerve, the big hole right, there has lots of space. This one is a lot more closed and rubbing exactly and then, if you just like throwing yourself, you know six feet down onto the ground.
It might just press it in that nerve and that’s. What you’ve, been feeling is that kind of like spasm a contraction. So what we’re going to do is two things, so we’re gonna adjust your spine. There’s a subluxation here, and here it’s, a technical thing.
I know where to adjust you, but what we did was we had. You lay over what’s called a spinal remodeling role. We’ll, get to the neck in just a second here’s. What happened? You actually got an amazing correction, so you see this.
Is you standing there and this is you laying over the block? You see how it’s almost perfect, uncomfortable it’s super uncommon. But the thing is this: so it’s, always a choice, and this is the cool thing is.
This is totally up to you. I’m just here to gather the details and help you out. You know we can adjust you and we’re gonna make correction little by little with adjustments. If we put you on the spinal remodelling role and we call it traction and actually get much more rapid changes, either way, we can figure that out later what you want to do.
I just want you to know that it’s correctable. How long is that say? I’d, say take about 3-4 months. Oh that messed up every day know times like two three times a week: oh wow yeah. So you just take time it’s like come on, go to the gym right yeah.
I know it’s like when you start working out. How much does it take to get biceps like that? Guy takes time I’ve, been right, mom. So would you definitely do it for the next? Since you were here, and you were talking about cracking your neck, so the next not terrible! You’re mad.
You’re supposed to be yellow. You still have a little bit of a curve in there, but again you see how that disk it’s, mimicking the lower back right so right down there, where the disc is compressed. The disc is shrinking down here here here, so what we did was that thing called a stress film again we wanted to see.
Is it correctable? We put you on that traction role and look. What happened came out almost perfect cool, even a little bit of over correction, so it’s, definitely correctable. What we’re gonna do today is get you.
Your alignment do a really light traction set just so you can lay there and kind of feel what it feels like, and then we’ll figure out what you want to do cool sound good. You ready for your first alignment.
I’m nervous and let’s, go to my face down, sir so big breath in sir and all the way up shoulders relaxed and we’re gonna start. In the mid thoracic spine, you’re gonna feel the movement, but in here noise it is not the bones rubbing together it’s, just gasp, releasing from the join right breath in mark and now shoulders relaxed all the way by How do we do, sir? I felt it.
My man breathe again chest relaxed shoulders really loose, that’s. True hips relax all right, so this is that area that was really tender, so we’re gonna put some motion in here. This is gonna be a little bit bigger here.
You’re gonna lay on your left side, sir, facing that red cabinet over there and your arm with you all the way over there. There we go just like that, sir. So the way we adjust your lower back, especially for guys like me and you that are really lean, is that we’re gonna.
Have you on your side, hips relax just like that, sir. This leg goes straight, just like that. Gon na have your arms right here like that head back there, sir, and this is that area where the nerve was in flames.
So this is the sacrum we’re gonna adjust. I’m gonna hold you here Marx. You know fall off the table contact there lean over you. The force comes between the hips that’s. My hip is your hip so breath in dude all the way up shoulders relaxed.
How crazy is that man that’s? Nuts yeah? Come on over this way, tighten the ABS come on over yes, sir. Yes, sir. Yes, sir, that was the lower level. Now we’re gonna. Do the the lumbar spine, the lower back, straighten that one out yes, relax, just like wow yeah and then head back a little bit, sir yep exactly that the head she’ll slow breath in all the way out, hips, relax and won’t drop him on man just lean over a little bit.
Oh, that was a big one. Those big man so needed that yeah we’re gonna tighten your abs tighten tighten you have set up. You can actually stand up now. We did the upper bend, your standing some face that way: shoulders relaxed head down.
Sir all the way arms down. I’m gonna get my hands right here. Your hands on top of mine full amount yeah. All the way up here squeeze down chest up, really good breathe in fly back into me, three, more all back, no tight up there, bro all that self adjusting.
I know it’s, not good right. It’s, not good yeah. I don’t, know yeah exactly straightened out my man just a little bit just a little bit, one more so head relaxed, slow breath in all the way out this one’s a little louder closer the ears breath in again.
Oh, my man whoa die old brother. Yes, sir, get you on for the tracking all right. I’m good, the most important adjustment – oh yeah! Thank you, sir! So now the pains would go all the way yes takes a little bit of time.
So a lot of times people do actually finish their adjustment men and they’re, like oh, my god. It’s, so amazing, but sometimes it does take a couple of visits to the pain goes away. What we want to do is focus on the underlying issue, but again that’s.
What we’ll talk more about that. What you want to do: cool cool! Thank you for everything. Yeah yeah got a boom yeah
