Lower Back Pain for over 40's (client studies)
From home page......Spinal Surgery that didn't stop the pain
I met Sally in 2015 when she was sixty-five.
After eight years of sciatic pain, unable to tolerate the pain any longer, Sally decided it was time to make the decision to have back surgery.
Her initial pain relief didn’t last, three months post-surgery her pain was worse than before. The recent addition of the opioid drug Targin only added balance difficulties to her pain.
So was I able to help – Yes! Dealing with a variety of issues, both present and past, the pain was gone. Leaving only the battle to get off the drugs.
She sent me an email at Christmas 2018
“I’m doing good and off most pain killers now, especially Targin, still have a few niggles but that’s all part of ageing I guess, movement is the key.”
Surgery is often a lifesaver
perhaps explore all other options first
Comment from PASC
This case shows that the value of complementary medicine and the more important point that constant pain shouldn't be ignored. Research show you need to consider all aspects of your life, not just your back hurting when you move.
Luckily the two cases below didn't wait too long, as they came to our clinic after weeks of pain, not years
In some cases it's surprising how quickly chronic pain can be resolved. Two recent cases illustrate this below.
Our clinic has a personal trainer, who does low impact exercise programmes to gently improve functional movement and rehabilitation.
My Painful Hip is Making Me Limp
Ben was limping and in considerable pain, especially with his lower back. The discomfort could be seen in his face, as he has always been a cheerful outgoing personality.
After 4 weekly sessions he was back to his usual cheerful self with a bounce in his step.
