See how a chiropractor cured this teenage boy’s chronic back pain
One day you wake up from your sleep in the morning as usual, but while getting up from the bed, something somewhere in your back gives way and suddenly you are in so much pain that you cannot even move from your current position. This might be a onetime thing or a precursor of something damaging. But you can be rest assured, that the thing causing your pain will go in some time with you popping a pain killer.
Anyone with serious back pain issues can vouch for the discomfort it causes and the way it hinders day to day activities. And if someone has paralysis of any kind, it means that the spine which sends signals to rest of the body via the nerves has been damaged.
Here is a similar case of a 17-year-old boy named Muntathar, who was suffering from crippling back pain and loss of sensation in his right side. Here is how he was cured of the pain and how he regained sensation in his right limb.
The video of his journey from pain to freedom can be viewed on the last page.
1 Who is the teenage boy?
The image is of a 17 year old boy Muntathar Altaii from the US. He was a normal teenager going through life when at the start of the year; he hurt his back in process of trying to pull up a tree root.
The pain in his back made it impossible for him to stand and walk straight. He spent 3 months bed ridden and in extreme pain. He also lost sensation in his right leg and was not feeling anything in it. He had seen every doctor he could but no one could help him get rid of the pain or give him his normal life back.
2 A ray of hope of Muntathar
He finally found someone who could really help him. He and his dad Asmir travelled to Australia. They were here to meet with Dr. Ian Watch of Gonstead Chiropractic in Victoria, Australia.
On day 1, Dr. Ian checked Muntathar’s files and does a preliminary checkup and X-rays of his back. He finds that the measurements are also quite a long way out which suggests the sacrum (the large triangular bone at the base of the spine) has rotated. He performs a very small correction and within 10 minutes, he gets some feeling in his leg.
3 The treatment continues
Muntathar tells the doctor that he has not been able to sleep well in the last 3 months. Dr. Ian identifies a huge amount of upper cervical nerve pressure in his neck. Muntathar now manages to move his leg a lot, where previously it was painful evne to try and lift his leg.
4 Day 17-Day 10 of treatment
As time passes by, Dr. Ian makes multiple adjustments of the spine in order to keep it stable. Muntathar says that he had lost his will to live as he couldn’t walk and go anywhere. Doctor was able to bring 100% feeling in his right leg and he was also able to walk up straight with a little bit of discomfort.
Dr. Ian made some more adjustments to his neck and spine in order to strengthen the spine and relieve pressure and Muntathar was finally able to regain his full height. He was also able to attend his graduation and now wants to become a chiropractor himself.
