Treated for sciatica at our Clifton clinic.
“One day I woke up to go about my day as I usually would. I went downstairs and before I knew it, I had collapsed. I had to crawl into the car and lay across the backseat for my wife to drive me to the hospital. A few weeks beforehand, I had felt a few twinges in my back, but I took painkillers and just got on with life. I had never experienced anything like this before. I was in a complete state of despair. The pain was excruciating, and I had pins and needles all down my leg. I couldn’t do anything for myself, my wife had to do everything for me. I couldn’t dress myself, walk, drive, the list goes on.
I was taking 30 tablets a day ranging from Naproxen and Co-Codamol to Omeprazole and Gabapentin. Even after a few days I couldn’t see a light at the end of the tunnel. I began to wonder whether I would ever be able to walk again. Eventually my wife drove me to see Dr Dane. I was amazed by the progress I made right from the start. After the first session I was able to stand by myself and almost able to walk by myself too!
As time went on my back got better, and the pins and needles started to go away. I started walking normally and with greater ease, I could even drive myself to the clinic. Fast forward to today and my sleeping pattern is better, I have so much more energy now than I’ve had for years, I can garden for longer, enjoy cycling and walking the dog. Overall, my health has improved. I feel better now coming up to 60 than I did when I was 50. I wish I had come to see a chiropractor sooner.
Even now I choose to see Dr Dane every 3 weeks. For me, it’s all about my well-being, keeping active and preserving myself for the future. I can’t recommend or thank Dr Dane enough!”
