I had been experiencing niggling back pain most mornings for quite a while which would feel much better once I was up and moving about – but never bad enough to do anything about it. On holiday I had been for a short run and then slumped on beach bed feeling virtuous, when out of the blue on attempting to stand, I experienced my first ever searing back pain. On return from holiday, I went to seek Chiropractic treatment from Jeremy.
Having enjoyed working at the Back Care Clinic for several years, and heard many clients talk about treatment, I was curious!
Jeremy asked a lot of questions about my pain and medical health. I then changed into a gown and after some movement tests and feeling of the back, Jeremy quickly located a few sore spots and identified the problem. He was able to reassure me that there were no signs of anything series, and that it was a very common strain to the pelvic joint.
After this we got down to business and the treatment began…manipulation! Jeremy placed me on my side and asked me to relax-before I knew it I suddenly felt my spine pop and crack. It was most certainly not painful-unusal maybe but not painful.
After some deep tissue massage which was slightly painful as Jeremy did hit the tight spots, my treatment had finished. My back felt so much looser and I could go from sitting to standing without needing to pull myself up on nearby furniture. I was given clear instructions to help the back to continue to relax and after a number of days, my back felt completely normal – no pain at all and I’m now back to my running that I love.
So, please if you’re nervous, as I definitely was, don’t let that you stop you seeking treatment- speaking for myself it wasn’t that bad!
