Cathryn's story

Treated for Neck, Elbow pain at Emersons Green clinic

“My first experience of chiropractic was in 2012. I saw a leaflet introducing Willow Chiropractic at the Willow Surgery, which offered a highly effective treatment for back and neck pain, headaches, joint pains, tennis elbow and many other conditions, with the goal of finding out the cause, discussing the results and providing a positive solution to get out of pain and so get on with life.

At the time I was in pain and discomfort from a long standing elbow problem and also quite severe neck pain. I decided to see if Chiropractic could help. I have always been an active person, walking is my main activity and I was anxious that this could be compromised if I was in pain.

I was quite nervous at my first appointment but Willow put me at ease, explaining everything clearly as we chatted about me as a person and my lifestyle. They explained that the aim of my treatment would be to help me be pain free and able to continue the activities I enjoy.

I attended regular appointments, whilst in between appointments I did specific exercises at home. Gradually over the next few months my symptoms subsided, I became pain free and able to resume my activities.

I have since received successful treatment for various other problems which have arisen, especially a flare up of an old back injury in which the pain was becoming more and more severe. Willow explained that this was something which could be successfully treated over time.  Again, I did recommended exercises at home and generally kept as mobile as possible. I did indeed become largely pain free and regained full mobility.

I have completed walking the South West Coast path with my husband. I walk regularly with a walking group, love gardening and look after my young grandchildren on a regular basis. A very important aspect is that I receive maintenance treatment every month or so to keep a check on things.

I particularly like the fact that I now understand more fully than ever before how my body works.  I listen to my body and have a much greater awareness of how to look after myself and to seek treatment when needed.”
