If you haven't read my last blog post, you can read it here. Over the last week my wife was having cold feet, strips of cold from her hip to her feet and was dragging her right leg. She wasn't having pain really, more of a numb/cold feeling in strips and areas of her legs and feet. Her left leg seemed to be having more issues than her right leg, but she has been dragging her right leg since she started to have issues. So, she went Monday to a new Chiropractor that did something similar to what we've done before but she didn't respond as well to the adjustment as she had in the past. On Wednesday, we decided to try a different Chiropractor.
After searching for a Pro Adjuster Chiropractor in the area, we found one not too far from where we live now. So, we loaded up and went through a consult and some x-rays and then she had her first adjustment at the new Chiropractor. It was a little unnerving to see the Dr. check her feet length and her right foot was literally an inch longer than her left foot. The Dr. adjusted her including adjusting her hips, which was causing the issues with her foot length, and she was feeling better immediately after the appointment. We drove home and she was fine for a few hours until her right leg started hurting.
She took an Advil and within a few hours the pain went away. We knew that she would be "feeling" the adjustment since her body was so out of whack. What's so interesting is watching her fatigue go away and the feeling come back in her body after the adjustments. Today she was much better. She can still feel the issues in her hips but isn't dragging her leg and has had much more energy. She will go back to visit the Dr. on Monday and we will see how far out of whack her body is by that point. Just another day living with MS! :)
