I have been seeing Mark now for 2 years. Every now and then my back “goes” like an elastic band snapping and I can’t do anything – the pain is terrible. Mark fixes me each time.
This last time was exceptional though so I thought I should put it down on paper.
One and a half weeks ago it twanged whilst out cycling. The pain was incredible. All I could do was stand straddled on the bike and scream and swear. I had to be helped off the bike and propped up against a wall. “International Rescue” were called and I was duly collected by my mate’s wife. Getting in the car was terrible and getting out at home… well! I was carried in home by my mate (John) and my partner (Ann). Three cushions were laid long ways on the bed and I was laid on them face down where I stayed.
Next morning there was a free slot with Mark. Again getting there – in and out of the car was not easy.
Mark duly did his thing; manipulated, used his trigger thingy, popped my spine and deep massaged me whilst Ann, who had to come into the room to undress and redress me, sat in the corner with tears in her eyes because of the moaning and screaming I was doing as Mark put me through the mill.
I was immediately somewhat better – less pain and more mobility but by no means fixed.
I went three days later for more pummelling and again three days after that. I had another appointment another 5 days later but to be honest I didn’t really need that as I was already “as good as I was going to be” pain free and mobile.
Over the bank holiday weekend (between the last two visits) we were away in Stratford where I have done two one hour bike rides and one half hour run plus some core exercises and a few circuits.
Not excessive but bloody brilliant for someone who couldn’t walk a week and a half ago!
So three sessions and I was fixed!
