A 28-year-old Georgia Southern graduate left paralyzed after a neck adjustment moved her leg for the first time in nearly two months since the shocking incident. 

'At first, we weren't sure if it was simply spasticity, but then she did it again. And again,' Caitlin Jensen's mother, Darlene shared in a video on Facebook on August 1.

Caitlin was hospitalized on June 16 after a routine chiropractor appointment by Dr. TJ Harpham, 42, left her with four ruptured arteries that led to a stroke and three heart attacks.

Jensen, who read chemistry and biology at college, was only able to wiggle her toes and open her eyes after she quickly became ill after visiting Harpham to treat back pain.

Now Caitlin, who is being treated at Memorial Health University Center in Savannah, Ga., can move her right leg, arm and hand.

'Can you move it,' a voice can be heard telling Caitlin in the background of the video posted by Darlene. 'Look at you! Oh my goodness.'

Caitlin showed off a big smile as she moved her leg back and forth.
