Patient experiences pain in the hip joints when she walks which feels like the bones are jamming against each other and has trouble walking on the leg.
A thorough Structural Test reveals 3 abnormalities.
1. Extra Bone – We have 7 Cervical, 12 Dorsal, and 5 Lumbar bones. She has an extra Lumbar Vertebra. For some folks, it behaves exactly like a 5th Lumbar vertebra, for others, it will have altered biomechanics like she has. Her nerves will also be different as well, she may or may not have an extra lumbar spinal nerve. Therefore mapping of her nerve system needs to be conducted.
2. Spondylithesis of the 5th Lumbar Vertebra. As seen on the xray, her 5L has a pars fracture which makes all the structures above that bone to be unstable.
3. Sacral fracture – This will have biomechanical instability to all the structures above.
Taking all the data into account, her 6th Lumbar Vertebra was corrected to stabilize her spondylithesis. Future visits involve observation and testing the stability of the sacrum.
