I would first like to begin with a thank you. I have received a first class level of service from all staff in your centre. I feel very welcome and I always get the feeling of home when inside or even driving past the centre.
I first came to Centre in April. On my first visit I was crippled in pain. I’d had lower back pain for 2 years. I have children and I wasn’t strong enough to pick them up or interact with them as I used to, I’d seen many therapists and used anti-inflammatories and pain killers. This only helped short term and it never cured anything, I always had some kind of pain and I’d got so used to pain every day that I’d learnt to deal with it.
Come this April 2004, things really took the toll. I’d had a fall in the winter and my lower back pain turned into something I can only describe as crippling. My pain went to my stomach; I saw the doctors and they were sure at the time that it was the appendix. I was rushed to hospital to receive tests which proved nothing to be wrong, then sent home still with the pain. In April I’d got slightly better, and I’d learnt to deal with the pain myself (Alcohol).
It was shortly after my 29 th I was out with friends I hadn’t seen for a long time. On the way home I was attacked from behind. I hit the floor and I heard a huge crack. I didn’t know what had happened at first and then I realised I couldn’t breath. I remember lying on the road thinking I was going to die. I woke up in hospital they did tests and x-ray’s of my chest and then told me it was my back, they sent me home with pain killers and anti-inflammatories. I remember thinking ‘no-way’ I wasn’t strong enough anymore to go through this pain all over again.
I sought help and rang the only place left, Chiropractors, I tried many and the only one which could see was Dr Carrie. I had my introduction they took x-rays and did tests. The next day I was treated. I remember my treatment being incredibly painful, but after the first week I could breathe again, and I wasn’t taking tablets. After 2 weeks 40% of the pain was gone, After 3 weeks 70% of the pain gone, and after 1 month 90% gone.
I have continued to remain a patient of the centre due to their miracle cure. I am now in a good position I have not had back pain at all. My back is strong and I have better health now than I had 10 years ago, I am a completely changed man. I can not begin to tell you how wonderful it is to pick up my children again something which I haven’t done in 2 years.
I can only say from the bottom of my heart ‘Thank You’ to Jason, Carrie and Zak, the three people who looked after me and not only made me better, but who have made me healthier and stronger than I was before.
