his lower back hurts. when walking, balance is poor.
when he walks a little, he feels pain in his right hip, lower back, and shin.
he enjoys playing tennis and golf, but lately he cannot move satisfactorily.
when running, he feels as if his lower back is sticking out. he cannot run fast.
when he wakes up in the morning, his shins feel numb. he gets numbness when walking for a long time. he came to our clinic through a friend's introduction.
visual observation: narrow stride when walking, pelvis not rotated.
palpation: stiffness was found in the tibialis anterior, gastrocnemius shortus, gluteus medius, and longus muscles.
i judged that the muscle tension in the lower back due to accumulation decreased the pelvic rotation ability and caused various symptoms to appear and treated him.
1st to 5th treatment: the pain in the hips disappears. pain in the lower back and shins remained.
6th to 10th treatment: numbness and pain in the shins will disappear. it becomes a level that does not interfere with daily life such as walking for a long time, playing tennis, golf, etc.
11th to 15th treatment: only the pain in the lower back remains. however, it is much better than at the beginning. the remaining trigger points in the lower back (longissimus muscle) were intensively treated.
the symptoms seemed to disappear after a few treatments.
