I have just got back from the chiropractor. I went because I'm getting problems with my neck and lower back again; something in them goes out of place (or that's how it feels to me), and then I get spasms in my hands and feet. Chiropractic has helped me so much in the past.
Well this was the first session with a new chiro, so he didn't actually do any work on me. He just checked reflexes, had a feel of my neck and spine, measured me and talked about health conditions. It was all fine, and I walked home as it was a nice day. It was about a 30 minute walk, which I have done many a time before.
But as soon as I got home, my ankle kind of collapsed. I stepped on it, and it went into a painful spasm, which keeps starting again when I try to stand on it. It feels like if I could just twist it in the right way
I'd be able to click it out.... But I can't seem to do it. I don't know if you'd call this a sprain or a twisted ankle, but I've never had this before. It's not like the numbness I've been getting, this is both painful and kind of numb at the same time, and I'm thinking it might be quite debilitating if it doesn't resolve itself soon.
I've put a bandage on, and will see how it goes, but I'm really confused. Could the simple assessment the chiro did have caused this? Maybe combined with my walk? It really didn't seem that strenuous or taxing at the time. Are our joints really that fragile? Any ideas or suggestions most welcome.
