Ganglion cyst, common peroneal nerve entrapment, fibular head pain – FIXED Gonstead Chiropractic


– Yeah, so you a-ray fix
my cha-ge right there. – Mm-hmm. – And these too, right there. – Mm-hmm. Okay. – And this in the back. – Got it. – Over this part. – Got it, okay. Come sit down, let’s clarify,
so what we’re seeing here, k. This right over here,
this is a ganglion cyst. How long that’s been going on? – Ah, this, ah… Eight months. – About eight months. – Eight months. – Your fibular head, causing pain all the straight down to this way? – Yes, all the way this. – And how long this been going on? – This, ah.. Four months. – Four months, alright. Alright, let’s get to work. Okay, so there’s two areas that we want to take a look at neurologically wise. I want to focus what’s going
on in this region over here and also this region over here, in addition to what’s going on. The diagram over here shows
this is where it’s involved. Where the fibular head, right over here, right at the common peroneal nerve. There’s something very
similar on the opposite side, on your left side. That’s where you’re
feeling that discomfort. – Okay. – So now, all we’re going
to do is this over here, we’re going to take a look
at this region over here. You see how the nerves produce
all those straight down to this region right over here. We’re gonna take a look what’s
causing that ganglion cyst. And I’m gonna take a
look all at the source, straight to the base of your neck. Next component, we’re gonna take a look at structures over here,
any potential structure abnormalities that may
cause a significant rotation in your knees, and cause an irritation to that common peroneal nerve over there. – Okay. – Okay, there are several
structure abnormalities we identified on this x-ray. So the spine itself, we have
this foundation over here, a significant rotated towards
this way by five millimeters, so right over here, and you
still have a rudimentary disc at the sacrum, we need to
correct this one over here. – Alright. – In addition to, this
fifth lumbar over here, we need to address this
one in a future visit. In addition to, your
second dorsal vertebrae, right over here, we need
to address that one, okay, that’s one that’s
radiating all straight down and may be responsible
for that ganglion cyst. The next structure abnormality
we identified is this, overall, your carpal bones,
k, the bones in your wrists, they’re not that bad. However, what we have
identified is this radius bone over here should be,
right now it’s over here, and it should be here. – Oh no. – Exactly. So, in your case, right over here, this bone
over here, your radial bone, shifted significantly upwards over here. As a result it irritated the
nerves, and possibly causing that, right, possibly causing
that ganglion cyst as well. So we need to correct this, and also the second
dorsal vertebrae as well. In this structural analysis,
and what we see in your knees. I wanna see this parallel. Right now it’s gapped-over like this, on this side over here. That tells us, this bone over here, there’s significant rotation over here. But more telling is, over
here, the fibular bone, I wanna see a little more forward, but as yet it’s backwards. There she goes, right there. Right there. So, as we can see over here, there’s quite a bit of swelling on the left side versus the right, and we’re going to motion
palpate this one over here. It doesn’t move at all,
stuck on the left side. Freely moves on the right. Feel that difference there? – Yes. – See, now we’re gonna
check your right hip, moves forwards and
backwards without a problem. Left hip moves forwards and backwards without a problem, so we
identified that sacrum, and more importantly, you
feel a little speed bump right there, so it’s the
second sacral segment right over here, that’s
the one we need to correct. And again, we see, I’m sorry. We also see quite a bit of
swelling on the left side over here, not too much on the right. Muscle spasms much more on his
left side versus the right. Quite a bit of swelling
right underneath here. And if we motion it right here, stuck. It’s kinda tender on you, right? – Yeah. – Yep. K, that’s number two. Hup for a second. Hup, good. Good. Now this ganglion cyst over here, okay, as we mentioned before… You have a posterior distal radius, so in other words, this bone
over here, it went this way. So what we’re gonna do is
we’re gonna set it over here. Keep in mind, it’s not
going to go away like that. – No, okay. – K, right, it needs some
time for this to drain and also the nerve to calm down and the nerve inflammation, the swelling, to calm down as well. – ’cause they seem hard. So, relax this over here, just relax. Just relax. We’re just going to pump this up first. Now, bare in mind, I am not touching the ganglion cyst at
all, we’re just contact right over here, we’re
just pumping it down here. Okay, I’m just going to open it up, set. Here it goes. K, what’s different? – It’s more… This more. – More what? – My hands. – What do you mean flexibility? – Yeah, it is more flexing. The other one not too
much, this, so you know, sticking over here. – K. – These two were not too much moving. It is now, it’s good. – So that’s what you’re
saying, so as was before you did not have too much movement. – Yeah. – Now you have more movement. – Yes, more movement, yeah. – Okay, good. – Yes. – Ready for the next? – Alright. – Okay, so for the next component what we’re gonna do is,
we’re gonna help you with this common peroneal nerve entrapment you’ve got going on, and the reason why is because this fibula, the fibular head, the proximal fibular
head, it went posterior, when it should be little
more alignment here. So because this bone over
here ended up backwards, that’s the reason why you’ve
got the significant swelling right there, and all that swelling, because the common peroneal
nerve is so superficial that meaning it’s so close to the surface, all that swelling, what it did was, it pretty much pushed it right
against the edge, exactly, and pinched a nerve. That’s why you have that
complete obstruction radiating all the way down
to the foot right down there. So, we’re gonna realign
that fella back in to place. Just relax. So, right now we’re
around the fibular head. We’re just gonna motion
that fella, before we set. Not too bad? – No, it’s a little bit. – I understand, it’s a little painful. – Yeah. – K. So what we’re doing right
now is preparing the joint to get all the swelling,
as much a possible, out of the way before we set this fella. ‘Cause what we don’t want to do is further irritate the
common peroneal nerve. Okay. – Yeah, it’s… Working good. – What’s different? – Now it’s having a different this. – So what’s that mean? – There’s no more. – No more what? – That problem here. – Mm-hmm. – Can move it more. – Now you can move it a lot more? – Yes, more, yeah. This not too much movement,
you saw it sticking like that. – Mm-hmm. – It’s no more. – Now you have full range of motion? – Yeah. – How’s the foot now? – The foot’s a little bit,
so you fixed that one, release here, this part. – Okay. So, what’s different on the foot? Before and after the adjustment. – Oh yeah, it’s a lot different, this one more move, you see, that one. – Good. – Its move. There. – How do you like that? – Its move. – It’s amazing isn’t it? – Yeah, it’s good. – So that’s what we’re talking about. So we corrected the fibula over here, restored the common peroneal nerve, and that’s why that foot
getting a lot better, right. – Yeah.

  1. I had a ganglion cyst in my left wrist a few years ago. It got so bad I couldn't bend my wrist back at all. One night I just got drunk and squeezed the shit out of it and it hasnt come back but I still don't have full range of motion in that wrist. Should have gone to this guy instead
