A patient here at Eastbourne Chiropractic was recently unable to work due to chronic back pain. But with our help they were able to comfortably return to work in just weeks.
A very nice gentleman has recently been visiting us here at Lushington Chiropractic in Eastbourne to get help with chronic back pain. In just a few short weeks we helped him achieve a remarkable recovery.
Here is how this particular gentleman’s story goes:
He came to see me last week because he was suffering with debilitating low back pain that had been keeping him off work for a number of weeks. The gentleman was taking pain medication daily and had also been prescribed anti-depressants, such was the severity of his issue. It was obvious from the initial consultation that the patient was largely depressed due to the fact that he was incapacitated and unable to work. As it turned out, he had a job that he loved and wished to return to action as soon as physically possible.
The mental strain of such injuries are often overlooked but they can be hugely significant. Not only can depression cause an individual to feel low and lack energy. It can also make them less inclined to be proactive during the rehabilitation process. As health practitioners we may not directly treat the mental condition but we must work with patients to find a positive frame of mind. One that helps them to work hard on their recovery and tackle the underlying issues.
In the case of this gentleman, he had always been a very active person. So the impact of being incapacitated had hit him hard. The nature of his injury left him unable to partake in his weekend hobbies of scuba diving and getting under the hood of his Land Rover.
As with all new patients a full history and examination was performed.
This includes orthopaedic, neurological and chiropractic tests. A diagnosis of bio-mechanical back pain was reached and care started.
I am pleased to report that within just four adjustments, this particular patient was back at work without using any pain medication whatsoever. He came off the anti-depressant medication when he returned to work and was able to return to his normal daily life. The gentleman was thrilled with the progress as, day by day and adjustment after adjustment, he kept improving.
The patient recently dropped in a written testimonial that was very touching. It can still be found in the testimonial book we keep here at Lushington Chiropractic. When you next visit us, we recommend that you take a look through the comments and reviews that guests have left.
