A colleague of mine gave me the number for Balance-Rite Osteopathy Clinic because I kept telling him how my neck was hurting. It was a few months until I actually called because I kept putting it off and now, as a self-employed builder, I don’t know why I left it so long! I was forced to call in the end because I couldn’t turn my neck properly to the right and had pain going down my neck and into my right shoulder blade. I was flying off to Vegas to get married and was dreading the flight with my neck the way it was, with only a week to go!
I’ve had problems with my neck for the past 10-15 yrs and x-rays 6-7 yrs ago, showed arthritis in my low neck. The pain varied depending on what work I was doing but generally I am always uncomfortable. I was waking every night at 3 or 4am with pain in my neck, hands and elbows. During the day I was having bouts of tunnel vision, that was like a wavy heat haze in front of your eyes, and lasted up to an hour.
I had three treatments from Karen before I had to fly out and was amazed at how my neck movement was so much better before I went. I had few problems with it on the flights and was able to really enjoy my wedding and honeymoon. On my return I went for further treatment and after that fourth treatment felt 100% better. I decided to continue with weekly treatments to see how much more movement I could get back in my arthritic neck and it really has been amazing. Not only do I have much more movement in my neck, I no longer wake in pain at three in the morning but sleep through until six o’clock, and I no longer get the pain in my hands and elbows at night either.
I’m so glad I decided to go for treatment as I’ve been transformed, I actually look forward to the treatments because I can definitely feel the difference and at the age of fifty now, I don’t want to go back to where I was. I’ve been so pleased I’ve also recommend to others and my step-son sees Mark at the clinic.
