I was born with scoliosis and had a Spinal Fusion at three years old. The operation worked very well up until the age of around 20 when I started to notice lower back pain. This increased over the years leaving me struggling with chronic pain. I tried various things like epidural and nerve root injections but nothing seemed to work. In June 2016 I underwent surgery to correct the curve in my spine, taking a piece out and replacing it with a metal cage as well as two metal rods either side for support. Unfortunately during the operation The surgeon caught my spinal cord leaving me in Spinal Shock and temporally paralysed from the waist down, but within days I started being able to move my legs very slightly but I was unable to move my toes or my feet.

Back, Shoulder and Neck Muscular Pain

In any form is sickening and debilitating for any one. Those in acute and chronic pain need all the factors and causes to be considered and every one requires an individual treatment plan to get them back to fitness.

Muscular pain comes from such things as a spasm or cramp. This is very often due to a serious lack of circulation. People often talk about the term “Hypertonic”. This means   to the resting “tone” of the muscle tissue.  A simple explanation of “Hypertonic” is that muscles are unable to relax.

Patients come to my clinic desperately looking for a drug, pain killer free method of Pain management which we can offer them. They want to get on with their lives; they don’t want to have the worry that any medication is only masking potential problems.

Firstly we use the “Bioneuro Therapy System Sigma Q (∑Q®)” This works deeply into the body, opening up many areas that are injured, but it is not invasive “no needles nothing to be scared of”. There are studies in which patients have reported a considerable reduction in the need for medication to control pain.

Also post and pre surgery, especially for orthopaedic issues the “Bioneuro Therapy System Sigma Q (∑Q®)” has hastened a quicker recovery.   

We use Neuromuscular Injury Release Techniques along with Sports Therapy and Remedial Massage Recently an in depth report stated that massage techniques such as  myofascial release may include various techniques, including effleurage, petrissage, friction, and tapotement. It has been shown to improve flexibility, decrease the perception of pain, and decrease the levels of stress hormones, all good when you are recovering from an injury. As Stress can, slow down recovery considerably.

Following this we introduce a remedial exercise plan, to ensure muscles are strengthened to help prevent further injury. Everyone is an individual and what works for one client may not work for another, so we adjust our treatments and recovery plan to suit them, it is all about recovery at a steady pace and that steady pace is the clients, if need be we will recommend other specialist to help with recovery,  your body knows when it can do more so you must always work with the body, don’t push it to soon or you will be pushing it further back, and we will be there for our client as they progress to “ Feel the Freedom From Pain”
