You can gain the benefit

from my own experience, dealing with back pain

Having had a bad back myself for many years, I am perfectly positioned to help people who are experiencing back pain – I can easily empathise, as I’ve been there and got the T-shirt!  I was in my mid-twenties when I experienced my first episode of back pain. I was heavily into exercise at the time, training four or five times a week, practising martial arts and enjoying regular running sessions. In my mind I was at my peak fitness.

It was while out running one day I suddenly felt my pelvis seize up. It stopped me in my tracks and I struggled to even walk home. In those days, alternative therapies were not as mainstream as they are now, but I was persuaded to visit a chiropractor. He treated me a couple of times per week for a period of time, and although I regained my mobility reasonably quickly, I struggled to get back to full fitness. Although I was keen to start training again the chiropractor advised me to rest. However, it was only when I went back to the gym that I felt the biggest improvement in my back, and this has influenced my approach to treating patients – to help them to manage their own backs, and return to the level of activity they wish to enjoy. In this way, I find they experience fewer issues in the future.

In the late seventies, in partnership with two others, I opened a gym – the first health club of its kind here in East Anglia. I learned to treat backs through exercise and the importance of maintaining a flexible back through stretching etc. To this day, if I do not do my stretches and mobilise my back, I know that, even with regular treatment, it will get stiff and I will have more problems. It is vital for me to practise what I preach.

As a wise person once told me “Motion is Lotion”

The combination of the Theraflex, Muscle Energy Techniques and Cranial Sacral Therapy is what I have found works best for me. I now offer this treatment to my clients, with great results. That said, I am always looking to learn new skills, attending on-going training sessions to see if there are any other techniques that may be useful for treating backs. I also believe in helping patients to understand their own backs – if they are armed with the knowledge, they will be able to look after themselves and reduce the likelihood of pain returning.
