Chronic Back Pain & Imminent Surgery

I’d had chronic back pain for over ten years and had tried every imaginable form of therapy I could find; - Osteo’s, Chiro’s, Physio’s, acupuncture, podiatry, massage, etc etc.  My specialist in Aberdeen had provided steroid facet joint injections as well as a provocative lumbar discography all to no effect, and despite the apparent lack of diagnosis I was giving in to the unpleasant inevitability of surgery.  In mid 2012 I headed down to London to visit no less than three independent specialists (including Harley St!) for a 2nd, 3rd & 4th opinion only to find that each “expert” produced a different diagnosis, even to the point of wanting to operate on different discs!  Almost impossible to commit to surgery now.  Then in early 2013 I was recommended to try Rolfing and headed off to see Ian Edwards in Stonehaven.

What a difference!  I’ve completed the recommended course of ten treatments and I am pain free for the first time in many years.  I no longer stand with a pronounced lateral twist, I no longer feel pain just lying down in bed (let alone turning over), I’m not scared to trip slip or stumble, I can play with my two-year old.  It’s literally a new lease of life.  And it goes beyond that:  I’m back playing competitive sports & regularly running and swimming, not activities I could have performed prior to Rolfing.  I have to confess I’ll need a few more sessions as all this sport is taking its toll on my knees, amongst other bodyparts, but I’ve every confidence that a further couple of targeted sessions will soon sort that out.

I can’t thank Ian enough, and I recommend him wholeheartedly to anybody out there who is struggling with chronic pain anywhere on the body.
