I had suffered from polymyalgia (muscle and spinal problems) several years ago. Recently a potassium deficiency linked to high blood pressure which caused inflammation of the muscles and joints. I would experience pain first thing in the morning in my neck and lower back. I was prescribed anti-inflammatory tablets and painkillers for short periods of time however felt that my problem was reoccurring. This made carrying out my role as a nursery teacher difficult.
However I was also aware that I needed to change some of my habits as this was aggravating the pain. At this point I thought I would try chiropractic treatment. I started having treatment at the back clinic in February.
The initial assessment was very thorough, the x-rays and treatment were clearly explained and I had the opportunity to ask questions. At first I attended the clinic three times a week.
I am now attending once a month. I was committed to carrying out the exercises several times a day.
I quickly saw the benefits of my treatment, less pain, more movement and positive attitude. Throughout my treatment I found the Chiropractor) and reception staff friendly, efficient and committed to their work.
I have been pleased with the treatment I have received, have and will continue to recommend chiropractic to family, friends and colleagues.
