Early 2001 I was diagnosed with an L5/S1 disk protrusion (that’s at the base of the lower back). I was hounded by a relentless, crippling back and sciatic pain and considered surgery when I decided to search for an alternative.
Having exhausted all conventional and some less mainstream treatments, I attended a myriad of day and weekend body-work courses up and down the country. I was even driving a round trip of 500 km for weekly treatment but still had no lasting improvement.
Finally I was referred to a Doctor of Manual Therapy. The result …… AMAZING! It was like he had hardly touched me but the pain was gone and I felt? … FREE.
Previously unable to sit without sciatic pain or lifting anything even remotely heavy I am now able to sit pain free and as you can see from a recent photo lifting very heavy objects has been life changing. Sure there are some subsequent follow up treatments and I have to do homework stretches but I am now 90% better.
Now having completed training under the expert guidance of this dedicated and very gifted man I understand the depth required to make the difficult seem simple.
