Mouth Trauma Linked to Chronic Leg Pain
Mom relates her daughter's journey
When your child gets injured, there isn’t anything you wouldn’t do to resolve their problem especially when it comes to pain. Darlene Sherp searched for over a year to get relief for her daughter Alaina, who was eight years old when she accidentally got hit in the mouth with a baseball bat. Soon after the incident, Alaina developed leg pain, which no healthcare practitioner could resolve. Interestingly, even though the site of pain was in her leg, the cause was coming from her cranium. How does it work? The trauma from the bat reverse Alaina’s cranial motion. That in turn stretched her dural membrane, which extended from around her brain down her spine to her sacrum. The added tension in the dural tube directly affected the lumbar nerves, which innervate the leg muscles.
By performing a comprehensive cranial adjustment, the tension was released from the dural membrane and the irritation to the nerves was stopped. The child’s leg pain of one year duration, stopped immediately and never returned. One must have a working knowledge of functional anatomy, which unfortunately is not taught in professional schools.
