Sarah, Jamie, Grace & Sophie's story
My first visit was in February 2011, after year of back pain and associated symptoms. Myself and my family are now complete converts to the benefits of chiropractic treatment and wish to share our story with anyone investing in their health.
I have always suffered from lower back pain since being a teenager. I knew there was a weakness there. My back pain continued in my twenties but was no more than an uncomfortable ache, something that I ignored and put up with. During my pregnancy with my first baby, I suffered with terrible back ache which was compounded by a difficult labour and birth. The year following my daughter’s birth was challenging. I suffered terrible back pain made worse by nursing a baby with colic and sleepless nights. I tried a few different therapies for a year and whilst the treatment gave me temporary relief, no sooner had a few days gone by and the pain was back, I foolishly began to think that the pain was something that I just had to put up with as I could function and 'get on with it'.
In late 2010, 6 years after the birth of my first daughter and 4 years after the birth of my second daughter, circumstances meant that I could no longer ignore my issues. After a month of feeling generally unwell with colds and virus, one after the other, I suffered chronic pains in my back and into my chest. these were severe enough to make me pass put. I could no longer walk properly or function enough to work. As a teacher, I needed to be on my feet all day. The pain was making it difficult to work and impossible to sleep.
It was at this point that I consulted the chiropractic clinic. I had heard mixed opinions about chiropractic.
Dr Sanvir was confident that he could help and assured me after detailed examinations that I would be pain-free within a month and if I was prepared to invest in the long term I had a chance.
I began treatment and true enough, the acute pain had gone within a month. I could sleep, work and function without drugs. I stopped taking the prescribed drugs and check-up blood tests revealed my inflammation levels were down. A year on, I have few headaches and my overall health is better. My good health and positive outlook have been commented on by my work colleagues and family alike. I have Dr Sanvir to thank for his expertise, care and advice to thank for my improved health, physically and mentally.
My partner and I were so impressed with the success with my progress that we decided to get the children checked. Sophie and Grace are both happy to get adjusted and are now very articulate at expounding the virtues of chiropractic care.
Jamie, my partner, has also benefited from chiropractic. A bit of a fitness fan, he had always been in good health and having seen the improvement in me, thought he would get a check-up. After a few months of adjustments, he is fitter than ever.
I wish to thank Dr Sanvir and all the staff for their care over the last 18 months. Our family are now better informed as to how we can look after our health, more confident than ever that we can be pain-free and healthy in our old age and I can pursue sports that I had previously given up on, such as yoga.
It is a fact that chiropractic has worked for all of us. Best wishes
