My aunt and my dad’s two friends all told us to go see a chiropractor about my leg length discrepancy, and so we did. My mom and I both went to see Dr. Thomas S. Perrault, Jr. at Perrault Chiropractic Offices, Inc.
Dr. Thomas S. Perrault, Jr.
As a second-generation chiropractor, Dr Tom has experienced and observed the results of chiropractic care daily throughout his life. Early on, he became fascinated with exactly how chiropractic adjustments could produce such seemingly miraculous results in a wide range of human ailments by making such simple changes in the spine. After graduating cum laude from Brooks School in North Andover, Dr. Tom went on to graduate from Bowdoin College in Brunswick, Maine, where he majored in physics before attending Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa. He has spent the past 19 years investigating a variety of chiropractic and neuromuscular techniques, and will develop a personalized approach that benefits each patient long into the future for patients who actively participate in their care.
It was AMAZING!
He listened to everything we told him, and we learned from everything he told us. There was so much information passed around that I can’t list it here. We spent a good hour talking about everything. Then we went to the exam room. He checked my posture with my knees locked and with my knees in their most comfortable position. He noticed that with my knees in their comfortable position my whole right side shifted downwards, and my head tilted to the left, but when I locked my knees my body looked fine, like nothing ever happened to it. He determined that, basically, it was all in my head. That after the accident my muscles reset themselves in a way that caused my right leg to lengthen and my left leg to shorten.
So he had me lay down in a bed which allowed you to breath when you lay face down, twisted me like a pretzel, and had me stand up. Guess what? My legs were the same length! He stated that this would only last a while as it was my first visit, but that as the visits went on it would get better and better. He did some more twists, one which included twisting my neck as far as it could go and more. It snapped around five times. He also twisted my spine as far as it could go and more. These twists took the breath out of me. They didn’t hurt, they weren’t uncomfortable, but he was putting so much pressure on places which usually didn’t feel pressure that it took my breath away! When the session ended I enjoyed about ten minutes of a limp free life, and then it came back. I can’t wait to go back tomorrow!
To all you people who found this while searching google. If you have leg length discrepancy, go see a chiropractor before getting surgery! I’m glad I did, they might have taken an inch out of my right leg If I hadn’t seen Dr. Perrault. Good luck!
