We’re not in a rush or anything right now. That was incredibly. Wow. Now did you think that you were gonna get like that kind of relief? No And it’s like I didn’t realize how much tension was there until like the decompression and then it was just like a huge release. I was like wow that’s how it’s supposed to feel? So we’re going to use the massage gun one more time, how do you feel? I feel amazing. Stand up stand up Oh my gosh it’s a lot of pain gone. Good and the thing is like I know you’ve first time ever. Mm-hmm. Getting chiropractic care done. Yes. And I know even like coming in you didn’t realize that you were actually in a good amount of pain it wasn’t like I know you had… It wasn’t like you had a trauma or any kind of like crazy accident where you went from like no pain to like a ton of pain, it’s just been normal life right gradual life going so you came in just like Okay, let’s get an alignment done this will make a cool, you know, YouTube video and whatnot. But getting that decompression done you don’t realize just how much built-up pressure and tension that you have until I gets released. Exactly. Yeah, I feel a huge release Now what would you tell people who like in your situation who ave never been to a chiropractor before Yeah, what would you tell them? Definitely get it done I would say like you don’t know what’s there until it’s released like you said so definitely because I I didn’t come in with complaints of pain or anything like that. It was just like a little tension, you know stuff like that, but definitely there was definitely pain there that’s been released. I’m glad I could help.
