The story begins with a telephone call,
From the wife of a man who’s had a big fall.
A reluctant husband, hates people like me,
She’s insisted he come, what harm could it be?
Later that day through the door he crawled,
In absolute agony, on the floor he sprawled.
Screaming in pain, the other patients looked on;
Rather him not me, wouldn’t wish it upon.
Calming him down with a packet of ice,
Slow down the swelling, make it feel nice.
He sat in the chair, grumbled through it all
As I sat and listened about his big fall.
Turns out this was the tip of the iceberg,
It’s been two years he’s been out of work!
He was then examined and referred for an x-ray,
To look for damage and signs of spinal decay.
An extra bone he had on the base of his spine,
With its own fused joint on the right hand side.
I drafted up a plan to help get him well,
Get back to work and get out of this hell.
Through unique hands on treatment, exercise and diet
We were able to make that back pain go quiet.
As time went by and what I saw him achieve,
He regained his hope and something to believe.
By two months he was moving and totally pain free,
Regained a sense of humour and very happy.
“I wish I’d seen you sooner, shouldn’t have left it this long,
I can’t wait to go to work, now I’m this strong”
So yet another satisfied patient, all full of life.
Wasn’t all about him, don’t forget his dear wife.
A happier family, lives no longer out of whack.
“Thank you so much, for giving my husband back”.
Pot Holes Of Back Pain (Philip J Hehir DC)
Last week I was driving down one of our beautiful Surrey country roads. Lovely as they can be, they can be abundant with pot holes and rocks which really irritate the wheels of my car. Just as any luck would have it, I had a flat tyre by the time I reached home. Brilliant.
Off I went to the mechanic to have my tyres changed.
As with most motoring costs, the bill is usually more than you’d expect.
After quoting me on a some new tyres (wasn’t just the punctured one that needed replacing) the mechanic asked me that for an extra £40 he could check my wheel alignment and adjust it, if necessary.
My initial thought was, have you not taken enough already?
This man was in luck however, because as a chiropractor, I totally appreciate the importance of good alignment.
You see without the wheel alignment being checked my car would have quite comfortably driven off without any worries, for now at least. The tyres would however wear out much faster had the wheels not been straightened. My car just wouldn’t work at it’s best.
The spine can behave a bit like this. A joint that doesn’t sit well within it’s socket maybe ok for now, or it may be just a little achey, but it won’t be able to work at it’s optimum. And just like the tyres, will wear out prematurely.
The pot holes that cause back pain in your life include:
If you haven’t had your spine serviced or checked in a while, come and visit one of our Guildford Chiropractors.
