Chronic Back Pain in patient suffering with Osteoporosis

Janet, was too frightened to go to an osteopath afraid of having her back ‘cracked’, as she has osteoporosis. She hasn’t looked back since visiting us and no longer suffers with muscle spasms and her back seizing up.

Nine years ago I was diagnosed with osteopenia which turned into osteoporosis. I had often suffered with my back, regularly having to take pain killers. My daughter went to see Karen for a back problem and when my back kept seizing up and going into spasm she told me to go and see her. To be honest I was too frightened. I was scared that the ‘clunking & clicking’ that osteopaths do would break my bones. My daughter told me that Karen didn’t have to treat that way and that it was very gentle and relaxing. I left it until my back was so bad that I couldn’t bear it any longer and have never looked back.

Karen assessed me and started treatment straight away. There was no ‘clunking or clicking’ in the treatment and it was wonderful to feel easier, straight after the first treatment. After a course of sessions it was great to be able to move freely again and I now have regular treatment to prevent getting back into the state I was in.

I would recommend anyone with osteopenia or osteoporosis and having back aches to see Karen as the treatment is unbelievably good. I went from having been diagnosed with osteopenia to osteoporosis within one year but since seeing Karen it hasn’t got any worse and my back feels so much better, without keep seizing up.
