Big Man’s Chiropractor
Fabrício Werdum is a Brazilian mixed martial artist, a two-time Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu world champion, a two-time ADCC world heavyweight champion and European Jiu-Jitsu champion.
The long-term problem is that every time an athlete injures an extremity (shoulder, elbow, wrist, hip, knee and ankle), there is ALWAYS an injury that takes place to the spine.
And if you only treat the extremity and do not treat the injured spine, the athlete will take much longer fully recover … if they ever do.
Watch the following video clips to see my wall adjustment technique on a 7-foot basketball player.
Dr. Steve Adjusts Athletes Of All Different Sizes
If the doctor, trainer or physical therapist only treats the ankle without releasing the stress load to that injured area of the spine, it will take MUCH longer for that ankle or wrist to heal.
So by unlocking the spinal injury that accompanies the ankle/wrist sprain, you improve ankle function much more quickly.
A Functional Short Leg Deficiency (FSLD) results in an increase in injuries on the short leg side. Example: hip injury, groin and hamstring.
This photo shows a left leg FSLD (in Fabricio). This results in an increase incidence of hip injury, groin and hamstring pain.
A pelvic gauge is used to adjust the sacrum and hip joint.
FSLD balanced after use of gauge treatment and wall adjustment twelfth thoracic vertebra.
By eliminating FSLD, you see a reduction in hip injury, groin injury and hamstring injury.
Reduce pain and wear and tear on the elbow and knee with wall adjustment seventh thoracic vertebra.
Wall adjusting in the seated position allows bigger athletes to receive the structural care needed to restore joint function and enhance performance.
Shoulder & Rib Injury Solution
For shoulder problems, we adjust the first thoracic vertebra and the ribs on the injured shoulder side in either the standing or seated position. When you have a shoulder problem, you always have rib dysfunction. In most cases, we use the healthy arm to adjust the ribs that are out of place on the injured shoulder side. This immediately reduces neck pain and releases shoulder and shoulder blade stress.
This athlete reported pain in the left arm. Several ribs in the left shoulder blade were misaligned resulting in severe left shoulder pain. Dr. Steve demonstrates rib adjustment on athlete with injured shoulder utilizing the healthy arm.
