“Many thanks to Mark and the staff for the excellent and effective treatment”
I have suffered with neck pain and stiffness for 43 years following a motorcycle accident. Courses in pain management, physiotherapy, pain killers, anti-inflammatory and sleeping pills have had no effect.
I booked an appointment at the clinic, had a through examination and X-rays were taken. I then had a comprehensive report which explained the X-rays and showed me exactly what was wrong. From my first adjustment I have had instant relief and have become much more mobile and pain free. My digestion has also improved and all the pills have been thrown away! I have recommended Chiropractic care to everyone and will continue to do so.
Many thanks to Mark and the staff for the excellent and effective treatment.
“When I left the clinic that day, the symptoms that I’d suffered with constantly for the last five months had almost gone. I walked home feeling nothing short of euphoric!”
I sustained a severe whiplash injury nine years ago, which left me in agony and unable to work or even sleep for the next two weeks. My GP prescribed a course of very strong painkillers, a neck brace and told me that it was unlikely my neck would ever fully recover; the reality was, as I got older my symptoms would inevitably get worse.
As the years went on it seemed that she was right, my neck didn’t fully recover and I was left with symptoms ranging from constant discomfort to severe pain, which gradually spread down my shoulder, arm and back.
I visited my GP again about five months ago when I began to experience additional symptoms – pins and needles, a burning feeling and loss of sensation in my left arm. The diagnosis was a trapped nerve in my neck,as a result of my old injury. I was prescribed anti-inflammatory painkillers and informed that the other option was a course of physiotherapy but the waiting list for a referral would be at least six months.
The anti-inflammatory drugs that I was given did slightly reduce my symptoms for the month that I was taking them, but as soon as I stopped it was clear that any improvements had only been temporary and could only be achieved by continued use. I did not want to be dependent on any form of medication.
A good friend of mine suggested that I go for a consultation with her chiropractor (Mark), asshe was sure that he would be able to help. I didn’t really give it much thought as I didn’t know much about chiropractic care but presumed that the problem was with my muscles, not with my spine. I was also a bit unsure as to whether I liked the sound of somebody manipulating my neck and back and was concerned about how safe it was.
I put up with the pain for another three months before my friend eventually had enough and insisted that I go along for an initial consultation. I was very nervous and a little apprehensive when I walked in for my first appointment, but was instantly put at ease by the kindness and professionalism of everyone that worked there. It was obvious that Mark was very knowledgeable and experienced and I felt confident that he would be able to help me.
My x-rays showed that the spine was actually out of alignment, almost certainly as a result of not treating the original injury correctly.
After a very informative consultation, we decided on a course of treatment and I had my first adjustment, I didn’t know what I had been so worried about. When I left the clinic that day, the symptoms that I’d suffered with constantly for the last five months had almost gone. I walked home feeling nothing short of euphoric!
Over the next couple of weeks of treatment, the remaining symptoms gradually disappeared and I am now free of pain for the first time in nine years.
I have noticed improvements in my health and fitness overall. I have more energy; better postureand I no longer wake up with a stiff neck every morning. My muscle strength has improved, along with my digestion.
I’m not sure why I was not advised by my GP that chiropractic treatment could have helped at the time of my original injury.
When you start to understand the connection between your spinal column and your nervous system, the benefits
that chiropractic care can give you make perfect sense.
I have since told anyone who would listen to me about the results that I’ve had, as I know what a difference it has made to my life. To my surprise I found that a number of my friends and colleagues are already patients at Complete Health and all tell the same story of quick results and an improved quality of life. I wish they had told me!
I would like to thank everyone that works at Complete Health for their combined efforts; the lovely ladies on reception who make it such a welcoming environment and Mark who through chiropractic adjustments and deep tissue massage have made me feel ten years younger.
Thank you all so much.
