A Lymington Chiropractic Clinic Patient’s Perspective.
As a writer, I often spend hours hunched in front of my computer screen, before I’m aware my neck and shoulders are locked solid with tension.
Towards the end of last year this was developing into a lower back pain and sciatic pain shooting down the back of my leg whenever I sat down for too long or drove any distance. I’d been suffering for months and had seen my GP and a sports physio with no improvement, before a friend mentioned that a chiropractor had helped her and recommended The Lymington Chiropractic Clinic.
Having never visited a Chiropractor, I didn’t know what to expect. Colin at the Lymington Chiropractic Clinic put me at ease straight away, asking questions, carrying out a thorough review of my pain, symptoms, any regular patterns and how things had developed over time. In the first session, he identified not only what was triggering the pain but also what I was doing to exacerbate it. I was locked in the same position, overcompensating for bad posture by sitting with one leg bent underneath me, or leaning to one side, shoulders hunched.
Colin assessed me standing up, lying on my front and back and carried out a thorough but non-manipulative examination. He explained what was going on, what was causing it and recommended a mixture of non-intrusive and alleviating techniques over a series of sessions. By doing a series of massages, exercises and by applying gentle pressure with both his hands and an activator, he was quickly able to alleviate the pain.
He recommended a series of exercises using a Foam Roller and a suitable Yoga class to increase movement and flexibility in my spine. I was also able to download a couple of useful videos from the Lymington Chiropractic Clinic’s website, one on recommended seating position which will help me improve my work/writing posture/position, the other on how to exercise correctly with the Foam Roller. Having had regular chiropractic sessions now I’ve found the mixture of techniques have alleviated the pain and the symptoms have eased greatly, I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend The Lymington ChiropracticClinic to anyone suffering.
