Customer Question
Hi, my 15 yr...

Hi, my 15 yr old daughter is a competitive soccer player and she's having shooting pain running down her whole left leg but mostly her shin and calf. We've been to the chiropractor who said she was out of alignment but that was 3 was ago and since the pain ytaveled from tight calf muscle to this shooting pain. What kind if doctor does she need to see?

Doctor's Assistant: What seems to make the symptoms worse or better? Any redness or swelling in the leg?

Nothing much, we've been to acupuncture twice and no, no. Redness or swelling

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

She is currently being treated for chronic fatigue, she has 3 imbalances related to food that we are treating
