Dear Dr Carrie Ann and all,
From the age of 12 I had suffered with horrible lower back and knee pains. I had tried many different therapies and nothing seemed to work. The pains were getting so awful that I was barely sleeping and I could not concentrate at school due to headaches. My mother started seeing a chiropractor at Finchley Back Care Centre and had found that she had significantly less back pain after just a few of chiropractic treatments. In 2001, aged 14, I decided to see if Dr Carrie Ann could help me too.
After a short time, I found that not only was I having little to no back pain, but also the problems in my knees had stopped altogether. I also started to sleep better and had fewer headaches.
I was taught how important it is to care for your spine, and the care I received was excellent. The staff at the centre were friendly and always made me feel welcome.
In 2004, I decided that I wanted to have a career in a medical profession, but could not decide what. That year, I did my work experience at the centre and after seeing the astonishing results of chiropractic care from personal and professional experiences I have decided to apply to do a chiropractic course at university next year.
I would like to say thank you to Carrie, Zak and Kim and everyone for all their hard work in supporting patients- I feel stronger and healthier.
