After 6 months of zero progress at a private physio clinic employed by the NHS, I was
basically told to get used to living with constant back pain. This left me with a very cynical view of physiotherapy, and I did live with the pain for 3 more years. After seeing my quality of life gradually worsen, friends and family persuaded me to give physio another try, so I contacted Chris.
I went to the first appointment as a total sceptic, but am very pleased to have been proven wrong. After taking some details on my pain, Chris performed a thorough visual and physical examination of my lower back and identified and area of tightness. Chris gave me some stretches to do and we made an appointment for the following week. The stretches were very painful at first, but after just 5 days I could feel a definite improvement. 10 or so sessions with Chris over 6 months and I am now completely pain free for the first time in years. I’m now back to strength training and am looking forward to doing martial arts again.
After years of near constant pain I still catch myself flinching every now and again expecting a huge jolt of nerve pain from my lower back, and being pleasantly surprised when it doesn’t occur.
