Everyone is Different
As I have got older I have seen many new treatments and therapies coming on to the scene. Some ‘old’ ones like acupuncture becoming more popular while ‘new’ ones like Myofascial Release creating interest. If you have an ailment, what do you choose? Presuming of course we are not taking the GP route in this little piece of writing. Now, don’t get me wrong, the GP is often a must in many cases, to check there is nothing untoward going on, but when you are dealing with persistent back ache or digestive issues, remember they are ‘General’ Practitioners and sometime you need to look further afield. It is also worth thinking that therapies that may have ‘fixed’ you in the past, may not be the ideal treatment now, and what works for one, may not work for another.
I was VERY annoyed and this is not the ‘place’ to be on your yoga mat. Frustration consumed me. I looked at the energetic reasons this may have happened. I did Reiki and chakra work on the area, but nothing really worked. I began to feel that I was meant to be experiencing this as a learning process. A bit ‘out there’ but, seemed pretty logical to me. Time wore on. My osteopath was unconvinced it was just muscular. Could it be gynae related Digestive? Who knew? I decided to try something different. I first went to mt GP, just to be sure it was just a muscular issue and was surprised that she said that the osteopath would be her personal port of call and it was a shame it wasn’t available under the NHS, but she could only refer me for physiotherapy. I decided to make a private appointment with someone several friends had recommended – Dominic Jones at St Johns Physiotherapy Centre in Taunton. and from here wonderful things started to unravel and transform. Not in the way you may think. The treatment itself was not what I expected. Mobilising the area that wasn’t moving very well after a detailed diagnosis and my sacrum was squished and squeezed. I had exercises to do and on the second appointment, needles were deployed!
