I came into Health In Hands because I had severe back pain. A short spell of digging in the garden would leave me in agony, barely able to walk. I had been to two doctors who both told me it was caused by osteo-arthritis and disk wear. As I was 57 years old the doctors told me my pain was something I should "accept and expect". All they could offer were some exercises and medication. Because of the pain I was reluctant to undertake anything strenuous and had to take painkillers fairly often.

So I came to Grant and April and Health In Hands. They explained that, unlike most other chiropractors, they don't offer a quick fix treatment for the immediate pain. They treat the cause rather than the symptoms. They determine the condition and alignment of your spine and then, over a period of time, use adjustments and exercises to return it to optimal alignment. Initially I was fairly skeptical that a chiropractor could fix a problem if the medical profession couldn't. Grant and April took x-rays and were able to show me my problems and told me how they could fix them.

They couldn't make my back new again, but by correcting the misalignment of my spine, the source of the pain would be removed. When the pressure was eased on the spinal cord there would be other health benefits as well, such as a general feeling of "wellness". I started at 5 adjustments each week but because of the pain in my back, my initial adjustments were fairly gentle. After the first week, the pain gradually eased. These adjustments, combined with an education program on correct posture, lifting methods etc allowed me to do many of the things I hadn't been game to do for some time. And no painkillers!

Because of the regular treatment and the education workshops run by Health In Hands, I am constantly aware of my posture now. I don't slouch in the lounge chair, and try to always lift things correctly. I have been given specific exercises to correct my spine's alignment. As my back got closer to the optimum alignment I went from five adjustments a week down to three. At present I am on two, and soon one per week.

After a couple of months of treatment my back was so improved, I felt confident enough to accept a job requiring a large amount of physical exertion, something I wouldn't have been able to do before Health In Hands. I have been in my job for two months now without any problems. My treatment at Health In Hands has allowed me to go from hobbling around in pain, to full and useful employment. April and Grant have fixed the problems caused by 57 years of use and abuse!

My Sincere Thanks
Doug
