Richard's story

Treated for Back pain at Clifton clinic

Firstly, thanks Michael for your help. Without those magic fingers and clicks I’d probably have gone ahead and purchased a support stick by now. I was feeling a bit depressed at the thought of it at 57 and the negative impact it was having on my activities.

In 2012 I had a spine operation and in 2016 I was diagnosed with having early signs of arthritis in my hip. Since the spine op I’d been unable to run as before and arthritis was identified as the most likely cause for a limp whilst walking. Sleep was regularly interrupted with pain running through my groin/knee. I was fearful that long walks with my dog and family were going to be limited and painful.

Having had physio and completing numerous exercises I thought I’d give chiropractic a go, thank goodness! After  a thorough assessment, Michael identified issues with my posture and a plan was devised. I can honestly say that just after a few sessions my limp had gone, sleep was much better and my stance more upright. I’m now even running again at the gym with no after effects. Whilst there is still more work to do to maintain flexibility to the spine, I feel much more positive about my health and able to keep fit and continue to enjoy my favourite activities.
