“I am now walking evenly, with a spring in my step and the numbness has practically disappeared”
Before I started chiropractic care I had been suffering with extremely tight Achilles heels for around 6 years and more recently I had been experiencing for 18 months numbness in my right thigh muscle. Both of these ailments were proving difficult when walking the dog and in the mornings and after sitting down for a while I was unable to bend my ankles, which meant I walked as if I was wearing flippers! Following my assessment with Mark Yacoub it transpired that my lower spine was tilting to the right, causing a nerve to become slightly squashed. In addition I was putting 30lbs more weight on my right leg due to the imbalance! After several treatments I began to feel slightly better however my ankles were still a problem. But most importantly having attended Mark’s talk on taking care of the spine, I began to notice other changes that I had not anticipated.
Whilst Mark had mentioned that these changes would happen over time I have to say that I had heard all this before from other sources. Other than the ailments I had come to see Mark about I have been feeling ‘unwell’ for many years. Firstly I started to sleep better, even sleeping through the night, I started to feel slightly less ‘fraught’ and ‘stressed’, the early morning ‘fuzzy’ heads & headaches eased off. And to my utter amazement my constant IBS was becoming sporadic and I lost 10 lbs in weight without trying!!! Let’s hope that this will continue. And most importantly I am now walking evenly, with a spring in my step and the numbness has practically disappeared.
I am so pleased with the results that Mark has achieved with my spine and health generally. I cannot recommend their services highly enough, and the girls on reception are so helpful and cheery on my arrival. Once I am back to ‘normal’ health, I will continue to have these treatments in the future as a maintenance plan.
Thank you to everyone.
“As a result of my marked improvement I am only too happy to recommend chiropractic treatment rather than surgery which is what I was on course for!”
I had acute intense prolonging pain in my lower back going down my right side 24/7 for about 2 months prior to seeing Mark.
I was on the edge of frustration as the pain would not go no matter what I did or tried. A friend noticed that I had a Chiropractor open near me and suggested that I try it as I had nothing to lose. I was aware of chiropractic but never used one.
So, in agony, I booked my first appointment and, after six weeks and roughly two appiointments a week, my whole state of mind and wellbeing improved beyond belief. My recovery has been a team effort effort from Mark initially assessing me, carrying out the adjustments needed, and then myself following his recommendations until the next appointment.
As a result of my marked improvement I am only too happy to recommend chiropractic treatment rather than surgery which is what I was on course for!
“Now eight weeks down the line I feel great, I have no back pain, I am able to move and do things which I haven’t been able to do in ages. Gardening is a pleasure again and don’t feel like an old man in the mornings”
For some time I had felt really unwell, I felt like an old man in the morning and could hardly walk at times. I enjoy working in the garden, but it was becoming very difficult due to the pain in my back. It was like tooth ache, or the mother in-law (always nagging).
I was talking to a lady at work and she said she had had the same problem about two years ago and advised me that I should go and see a chiropractor. Which I did and have never looked back. I made the appointment to have my consultation with Mark and luckily the day I saw him I was in quite a bad way so he saw me at my worst. The x-rays were taken on site within minutes. I went back a week later for the results of my x-rays and my first adjustment. Mark explained everything in a really easy way and answered all my questions and concerns and worked out a programme which would put me back on track.
To begin with I attended twice a week for six weeks for my adjustments. At first I didn’t feel comfortable having my back realigned, but once you get used to it, you can really see and feel the benefits, it’s great. I now look forward to having it done. Now eight weeks down the line I feel great, I have no back pain, I am able to move and do things which I haven’t been able to do in ages. Gardening is a pleasure again and don’t feel like an old man in the mornings.
I have told all my friends and family about Mark and hope they all pay him a visit. He has been a great help and am so glad that I found him as my chiropractor. I also attended his discussion class, which was very beneficial as it made me think more about the correct way of doing every day things like sitting, sleeping and standing.
I run an Holistic Health practice and now give out Marks’ cards to many of my clients and recommend him to anyone I know who has back problems. I have discovered the difference that chiropractic has made in my life, and want everyone else to feel the same.
Thanks for making me feel alive again.
