I have often said, both in the blog and office, that I have the best job on earth.
Recently I had a patient in the office that was hurting. Not only was their low back hurting, he looked like a pretzel as he was all twisted up.
After a thorough history and examination, I determined that he had a significant structural shift that was causing a whole host of secondary conditions. While the low back pain and leg pain were bothering him, it was the problem moving his bowels that was bothering him the most.
After the patient’s first visit, he walked out a little straighter than the when he walked in. While there was not an immediate decrease in pain, not unexpected, the patient was moving a little better.
The cool part is what happened two hours later.
The patient reported he had a bowel movement that, well let’s not get too graphic here, was slightly bigger than usual.
The bodies ability to heal itself never ceases to amaze me.
If we get the structure lined up and allow the body to do what it knows how to do, amazing things can and do happen.
