Hunched Back Teen Stands Tall Through Chiropractic

Share

After pulling out a tree root Muntathar experienced excruciating pain which forced him into a extreme hunched position. If he tried to stand up he would get terrible pain and numbness all down his leg. Despite being to emergency 9 times, he had found no help in the medical world. So as a last resort he decided to travel from America to Australia to see Dr. Ian. Watch as after 2 weeks of specific Gonstead Chiropractic care, Mun stands straight and tall once more and gets his life back. We hope you enjoy this very special case.

The video (see at bottom of post) was posted on Reddit by user Duggerdean with the comment: ‘I used to be a skeptic about chiropractic care until I started watching this channel. His latest video is so amazing.’

The video they refer to is that of Dr Ian Watch, who practices at Gonstead Chiropractic in Victoria, Australia – and his teenage patient Muntathar Altaii from the US.

Despite going to A&E nine times, he says no one was able to help him.

Day 1

 

 

Dr Ian X-rays Mun’s back and sees one of the joints isn’t functioning properly. 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.

 

 

Mun Also Has No Feeling In His Right Leg

 

Dr Ian makes what he calls ‘a very small correction’ at the first appointment. After just 10 minutes, he’s already got a small amount of feeling back in his leg.

Mun then confesses he hopes to be better by his graduation – on June 17. No pressure.

Day 2

 

Mun Reports He’s Slept Well For The First Time In Three Months

 

Dr Ian identifies a huge amount of upper cervical nerve pressure in his neck. His head sits higher on one side than the other. So, Dr Ian makes another ‘adjustment’.

Day 4

 

Mun has a lot more movement. He can move his leg easily, whereas before he would have to pick it up even to walk.

Day 7

After further manipulation of Mun’s spine (with assistance to keep it stable), Mun tells Dr Ian how desperate he’d become after his injury. ‘At first I didn’t want to even live anymore,’ he says, ‘because I couldn’t walk anywhere.’

Day 10

‘Now he just walks like he’s been playing too much X-Box’ jokes Dr Ian.

For The First Time, Mun’s Taller Than The Doctor

 

 

Transformation In Just 10 Days Is Pretty Incredible
