Treated for back pain at our Yate clinic.
“Before I went to see Hannah I was in pain every day. Some days were really bad, which prevented me from playing with my children. It also caused me to take painkillers which didn’t always help. I have always enjoyed baking especially my kid’s birthday cakes, but even this activity left me in agony from standing up at the kitchen counter for most of the day. I was in pain sat at my desk in work and even out shopping. Quite regularly I would to say to my children I was unable to play or pick them up as I was in pain.
I had been to my GP many times over the years and nothing was working. I was concerned about my future, as my mother (58) had recently been diagnosed with osteoarthritis. The doctor suggested it might be worth me seeing a chiropractor. I rang that day and was booked in later the same week for my assessment. The following week I had x-rays which showed I few problems with my spine and pelvis.
Since seeing Hannah my life has improved so much. Most days are good days and there is no pain. Even on the rare bad days the pain is nowhere near what it used to be. I feel happier, I am sleeping better, and I very rarely tell the children I am unable to play.
The true test came on my daughter’s birthday; I started baking at 6am and didn’t sit down until 3pm. I felt no pain in my back! I couldn’t believe it and thought I would suffer for it later, yet I woke the following day full of energy and still no pain. I even stood in the kitchen for a few hours decorating her cake and preparing for her party—still no pain.
I feel more able to enjoy a full life with my children, and for them not to see Mummy in pain all of the time is great.”
