less than 30 seconds of NUCCA. all three spots were painless.
stands her up again (with his assistance this time) and asks her to turn her neck. "crunchy is gone. feels almost the same as turning left"
a few more NUCCA adjustments. turning neck is now the same going left or right.
now for walking. doc says walk to the door and back. i hand her the cane and she walks once and then twice. during second trip doc asks how she feels (he first warned her that some people are week and light headed after treatment) but she answered "i don't know, it feels the same".
i looked at her and said "then why aren't you using the cane?"
she didn't even notice she was carrying the cane instead of using it.
there were several more adjustments.
i noticed there were definite improvements in her walking. normally she walks by flipping her leg out to the side instead of lifting it up. she was now lifting it with ease.
her comments - more strength and less numb.
another observation - as the treatments went on, i could see her strength increasing. by the time she reached the end, she was standing herself upright without any assistance. is this placebo because she believes the treatment is working?
when we left the office, she handed me the cane and said she wanted to try walking herself. she smiled and said "i'm walking normal"
when she gets in the car, normally she has to lift her right leg using her hands. this time - not so much. driving home, she commented about feeling "more centered". not leaning to the right (her week side).
my observations continued at home. an increase in strength, balance, and coordination of her right side. i would say she now has control over her right leg whereas a few hours earlier she did not.
the skeptic in both of us continue to think this was all due to placebo - she wants it to happen so badly. we can only pray that the placebo continues. more treatments to come.
one of the best things about the whole experience is that we did not discuss MS. NUCCA is not a cure for MS. i am sure my wife's MRI would be the exact same today as it was yesterday.
its all about quality of life.
