Sciatica and low back pain treated with Applied Kinesiology
My name is Stefania Cardinale, I'm 33 years old. In the year 2000, I was in a motorcycle accident. I was on the back seat and a car sideswiped us. The right side of my body was hit, especially my leg. In recent years, I've been suffering from various types ofpain, mainly on the right side of my body. Nowadays, I can't stand for very long, nor can I wear highheeled shoes. This provokes pain in my back and leg. The pain is constant. It's generally mild but it is always there.
My right leg is very weak. There is pain over one spot in particular right on my spinal column. It feels like a constant bruise, even though I've never had a direct blow to this area. I've been on birth control pills since 18 years old. I have other symptoms like abdominal bloating and indigestion. I am frequently thirsty, so I drink a lot of water. The following are the highlights of the first examination and treatment of Stefania by Robert Morrison. The entire visit of approximately 45 minutes has been edited for the viewer. There's a saying that quot;The body never liesquot;.
This is why we analyze posture. It is the language of the body. By analyzing posture, we can gain a lot of information about a patient in just a few seconds. By placing my hands on her pelvis, we see an imbalance: the right side is higher than the left. The left shoulder is higher than the right. The right hand hangs lower than the left. The right ear is higher than the left. Does this hurt your low backé Yes it pulls here.
Try the other side. This is much easier righté Yes. MANUAL MUSCLE TESTING Now, we want to find out which muscles are functioning neurologically and which aren't. More specifically, if individual muscles are neurologically inhibited they won't support the bones and joints. This side locks as it should. But this side doesn't resist the test pressure. This is very important because if the ankle is not stable, there will be repercussions throughout her body. Push.Push harder Stefania.
This muscle is inhibited. However, if she touches this musclewhere it attaches to the pelvic bone, Push up and out the muscle gains strength. This is because when there is a physical trauma, muscles are injured right where they attach to bone. So as she touches the area of injury Push the muscle regains its strength. Without touching it Push out and up the muscle is weak. Very little strength here also. But if she touches the muscle's attachmentto bone, it becomes stronger.
Push. harder.she lacks strength in this muscle also, but if she touches the muscle's attachment to bone .Push.it regains strength. MANUAL THERAPY What I am doing now isn't exactly a massage. Rather we are activating neurological reflex mechanisms within the tendons. When a muscle is injured, these receptors become shortcircuited and stay that way for years. What I am doing is reactivating the neurological pathways. Now we've turned this muscle back on.
