    I was having severe headaches 3 or 4 times per week and did not have much mobility in the neck.  After several treatments I found I was getting more supple and had far more energy allowing me to start sports again.

The pain is less and less frequent

I am a 38 year old pharmacist suffering with dull pain in my neck, shoulders and lower back. The pain is dull but at times can prevent me from doing certain things around the house. After visiting the clinic the pain is less and less frequent, I still suffer with a little pain in the lower back when I exercise but all other pain is minimal since the treatment.

Having fallen off a step and injuring my back, I went from a very active, fit person to someone who had difficulty walking, sitting and standing.

Due to my reduction in activity I became very low – thinking this was my lot. I finally decided to visit Bryon and I am now walking without the limp so much.

I am able to swim again and feeling more flexible. I have nothing like the pain I was experiencing previously and feel more like my old self. Thank goodness!


Neck pain connected to back

Claire

Claire, February 2017

My name is Claire. I have been coming to Nottingham Chiropractic Clinic since summer 2013. I knew that I had always had pain in my neck, chest and knees, but I had not connected this with my back problems.

On my first appointment Bryon took photographs to document my existing posture. It was the first time I had noticed the way I stand and was a real light bulb moment.

The treatment then involved a device which is used to gently tap the bones, moving the joint to a better position and breaking up tension in the muscles.

Three years on and the neck pain has pretty much gone, and my posture is much closer to the ‘normal’ than before. I now come monthly and I love that I can see and feel the treatment working.

I am a 62 year old woman, just retired from a secretarial job after 25 years – mostly spent in front of a computer. 30 years ago I trapped a nerve in my neck and initially was put on traction.

This Caused an on-going and recurring problem, especially when doing a lot of driving. Neither hospital nor physiotherapists seemed to be able to make much difference and it wasn’t until I visited a chiropractor that I gained any lasting relief.

I also slipped down stairs and hurt my coccyx, which caused recurrent lower back pain. Regular manipulation by the chiropractor generally keeps my neck and back in working order with little pain and any problems that do arise are soon sorted.


Back and Neck Problems

“Now aged 63 and retired after 40 years as a teacher and an active sportsman. Married with 2 grown up daughters and a granddaughter. I came to the practice suffering with back and neck problems which had been caused by numerous sports injuries over many years.

I was having severe headaches 3 or 4 times per week and did not have much mobility in the neck. I had had to curtail or stop most of my sporting activities because of this. After several treatments I found I was getting more supple and had far more energy allowing me to start sports again. read more»

I am again very active – gardening, walking, biking and again enjoying DIY activities. Of the two treatments I have for my arthritis, the medication does have unpleasant side effects for which for I have to take more tablets, whereas there are no unpleasant side effects with Chiropractic treatment. As I tend to overdo things it is important to get Bryon to keep me supple and I therefore see him on a monthly basis. My wife is also a patient and our eldest daughter has decided to seek help.”

Standing Straighter

Sophie

Sophie

My name is Sophie I’m 19 years old and I’m a student at the University of Nottingham. I had back problems for years. I had a very hunched posture, which caused a lot of pain in my neck, shoulders and upper back. I also had sciatica in my lower, left back, which caused pain in my leg also.

Now, after 13 visits, I am standing up a lot straighter and feel taller. I have less pain in both my upper and lower back, but it is not completely gone so I continue to go for visits in the hope that I can become completely pain-free.


I couldn’t lift my neck up to look straight ahead

Jean, Age 70

I was finding it increasingly difficult to lift my head up and my chin was falling to my chest.

I was referred to a physiotherapist and psychologist and then to a consultant spinal surgeon and diagnosed with camptocormia, an unexplained condition when the spinal muscles weaken and cannot hold the head up.

X-rays revealed degeneration in my lower cervical spine.

The surgeon suggested that the condition would likely deteriorate further and recommended ‘internal scaffolding’ of rods and screws to keep my head upright.

I should like to add that I first met Bryon when my husband John was receiving treatment for his back, and John asked Bryon if he would consider helping me, to which Bryon replied that he would do all he could. My head and neck by this time were rather misshapen and the photo of my side view showed “head on chest”.

I consider how fortunate I have been to meet Bryon and to come each week for my treatment. I also have a short series of exercises which I follow at home. I have seen Bryon for 7 months now, resulting in quite a considerable improvement to my neck and my alignment. I may never be completely upright, or pain free, but I am satisfied that I can now stand and see the horizon – a big leap forward for me!! May it continue!

As part of the chiropractic examination we perform a Posture Screen Analysis to look for elements in posture that can be corrected and measure the improvement, here are Jean’s impressive results below:

The problems that brought me to seek professional help was severe neck pain and lack of movement, coupled with pain and limitations in the use of my arms and hands.

I found Bryon to be thoroughly professional and supportive with the problems I had and would not hesitate to recommend him to any of my friends or colleagues.

To quote a phrase; “he does what it says on the tin”.

I feel substantially better.
