My back pain problems began in 2008. At the time I was referred for physiotherapy by my GP. I was given exercises but they didn’t help much; I still had severe shooting pains in my leg (a symptom of degenerative disc disease). In April this year, I felt worse than ever; I was in such a bad way that my wife had to help me up the stairs. A friend recommended Chigwell Osteopathy and Physiotherapy Practice.
My sciatica was so intense, I really didn’t think it would ever go but (after a course of IDD) I feel like a different person now: I can walk properly and the pain has disappeared.
Following several fruitless visits to my GP, I made an appointment through a recommendation by a friend. I was suffering terrible headaches, back and neck pain and numbness on my right side. All my treatment was fully explained and I decided to embark on the first of two separate courses of IDD Therapy.
This combined with the odd sports massage and manipulation here and there soon had me on the road to recovery. Without any doubt, had I not had treatment, I’d still be in the misery of my mystery condition..!
