Yesterday I had a high school kid in who had to quit track from horrible hip flexor pain. It was so bad that he couldn’t really get any lift on his long jump.
- Gluteus Maximus
- Gluteus Medius
- Tensor Fascia Lata
- Probably more, but that was good enough for me
I put a Sacroiliac belt on him and they all strengthened up. Solution? Work on the dysfunctional pelvis? Multiple adjustments?
So I checked his teeth. Nothing wrong there (I’m finding a lot of weird proprioceptive input from fillings, crowns, root canals, etc.).
Pushed on his sphenoid (bone in the skull). Strengthened all the muscles. Okay, so did some drop piece cranial corrections and made all muscles strong. Had him stand up and walk around for 10 seconds. ALL weaknesses back again with the same cranial fault (anterior sphenoid bilateral).
Re-adjusted, had him walk again. ALL weakness back again.
HMMMM. Something deeper affecting his meningeal system. It has to be.
This kid is a football player. Running back. So, I checked for an A-P or P-A cranial fault. Sure enough, there it was. But the only correction that would work was by using a percussion hammer. He needed a deep fascial unwinding in the cranium. I spent about a minute on his head. Felt the release and had him walk around.
Immediately he remarks his legs and hips feel great. Really? Wow. Test his muscles. Sure enough. ALL strong. Have him run down the professional building hallway. Test again. ALL strong.
Just had him in the office for a quick re-check. EVERYTHING strong. Pain is 80% gone, feels stronger, and moves with more freedom.
Parents spent 2 months trying to fix his hip flexors. Hip flexors were a problem, yes, but not the REAL problem. Pelvis was a problem like I found, but not the REAL problem.
Deep dural torque was the answer.
It just goes to show if you keep digging and asking the question “Why?”, you can often solve the problem.
And I can tell you with 100% certainty that the closer you get to the cranium, the more likely you will find the answer you are looking for.
Without taking tension off the skull, other therapies will not be near as effective.
