A Georgia Southern University graduate has been left paralyzed following a chiropractor supposedly snapped four arteries throughout a routine visit for neck pain.

Caitlin Jensen, 28, can just communicate with her eyes and wiggling her toes as she languishes in a hospital bed after the shocking incident on June 16.

The 28-year-old, who read chemistry and biology at college, is announced to have visited the unnamed practice for an adjustment to her neck.

Yet she quickly became ill and was rushed to Memorial Health University Medical Center in Savannah, Ga., where it was announced four arteries in her neck had been dissected.

Jensen went into cardiac arrest, had a stroke, and lost her pulse for over 10 minutes before being revived just to discover she was mostly paralyzed with traumatic brain injury.

Her family has denounced the chiropractor, who they hold responsible, and stated they are working on getting the recent graduate out of the hospital and into rehab at Shepherd Center in Atlanta. Jensen's mother, Darlene Jensen, explained to WSB-TV: "The surgeon that saved her life, and every other doctor that has looked at her, have all agreed that this happened as a direct result of the neck manipulation."

Jensen's brother, Caleb, continued: "You're talking to her, and then 30 minutes later, she's in the hospital and now in the ICU."

"Caitlin is currently conscious and able to respond to verbal commands by blinking her eyes, as well as wiggling her the toes of her left foot." nevertheless, the rest of her body sits in a state of paralysis because of the injury.

She continued: "We ask that you please flood Caitlin with your prayers and positive energy and consider donating to this cause."

Jensen's mother, Darlene, shared a series of updates on the GoFundMe disclosing her daughter's progress as she battles her horrific injuries.

"Her MRI last night was not positive in the slightest. We know we are in an uphill battle to save our precious girl and are doing everything we can."

In the same post, Darlene shared that Caitlin briefly opened her eyes, and she is "100% certain that she SAW and HEARD" her.
