It was nearly ten years ago that I first saw Anthony, who had come to me after he could no longer put up with the pain in the right side of his mid and upper back. To give you an idea of how bad things had gotten for this young man; on our clinic’s Pain / Disability / Loss of Enjoyment of Life Questionnaire
, driving and recreation were both rated a 7, working was rated an 8, and sleeping was a 9. He had come to the end of his rope and was looking for the kind of relief not found in a bottle of pills. Fortunately, he had come to the right place.
Probably due to the physical demands of LOGGING, Anthony had developed FASCIAL ADHESIONS that had literally “TETHERED” the musculature on the right side of his spine from the top part of his THORACOLUMBAR FASCIA clear into his NECK. I quickly figured out what was going on, broke the adhesions, adjusted him, and did not see him again for three years. In fact, this has been his pattern.
I’ve seen him once every three years since that time, with the latest coming sometime last week. Although I had forgotten how severe this problem was for Anthony when I first saw him, he reminded me. When I asked if he would be interested in sharing his story via a video, he agreed. And while it’s short and to the point, it’s quite clear not only how severe he was, but how much the care in our office changed his life.
