Aches and pains are very much a part of everyday life.
Whether it's a stubbed toe or lower back pain from sitting in front of a computer all day, these spasms can cause minor discomfort, but they're not enough to prevent us from living our lives to the fullest.
For far more serious aches and pains, the same cannot be said.
While some resort to pain medications, that is hardly a solution to any chronic discomfort. There are a number of treatment options, such as physical therapy or chiropractic services, but there's never a 100 percent guarantee that they'll be successful…
Meet Muntathar Altaii, a teenager suffering from excruciating pain caused by a failed attempt at removing a tree root from his backyard.
After spending three months bedridden, Altaii reached out to the Gonstead Chiropractic in Australia. This was his last resort, after all previous practitioners refused to work on him for fear of making his condition worse.
Altaii was experiencing severe spinal kyphosis, leaving him with little to no feeling in his right leg.
The unbearable pain the teen felt left him slouched over and unable to walk more than a few feet at a time.
After running a series of tests, Dr. Ian was able to better cater to Altaii's needs.
Amazingly, after just one day of therapy, the young man saw a small improvement in his condition.
Day after day, he returned to Gonstead Chiropractic to endure painful realignment sessions that would hopefully set him down a path to full recovery.
Dr. Ian was able to relieve a large bit of strain on Altaii's spinal nerves with a simple neck realignment.
After just a week's worth of treatments, Altaii was able to stand taller than he had in nearly four months.
By the final day of treatment, he was almost unrecognizable compared to the hunched-over teen that had first walked through Dr. Ian's doors.
He was finally able to stand tall and share a laugh with those who had helped him overcome his excruciating pain.
He even took to the floor to practice yoga.

Thanks to Dr. Ian from Gonstead Chiropractics, Altaii was able to walk across the stage at this high school graduation and hold his head high.
