I have a long history of chronic lower back and sciatic pain after suffering
a slipped disc which effectively ended my teaching career. After years of
hospital visits, medical intervention and with the occasional aid of a hefty
surgical corset I gradually achieved a very cautious life style. And so it
was with utter dismay that recently I found myself once again in great pain
having apparently sustained an injury to my back from some quite simple
everyday bodily movement.
Several days of painkillers and immobility later, and fearing a return to
years of pain, I turned in desperation to the official Register of
Chiropractics who recommended Glen Thurlow at Goffs Oak Chiropractic Clinic.
Following an in-depth consultation and examination, a short course of
treatment and specific exercise regime was suggested, which at the time and
judging by my previous experience I thought very optimistic. However, true
to his expectations and having completed the course, to my great relief I am
now mercifully pain free, able with care to function more or less normally
and have thankfully resumed my yoga practice which is a great pleasure.
