I work with computers everyday and have suffered from migraines for years, since visiting back to health my migraines are no longer a problem. Not only have my migraines gone but I have now been educated about the effects of using a laptop everyday and why that can cause headaches and migraines.'
'I am a 46 year old woman who has been doing sport all my life. In Feb/Mar 2009 my elbow and shoulder on my right arm was uncomfortably sore. I went to a medical doctor who diagnosed a tennis elbow and gave me a cortisone injection. The elbow was immediately better, but I knew we hadn't really found the source of the problem. I noticed that I was using my right hand less. By April it was very sore again and I went back to my GP. I got another cortisone injection and a referal to a physiotherapist. I went twice a week for 6 weeks to the physio and I stopped all my sport. I had the full range of treatments, but no real improvement. Eventually, in June/July,
I've been suffering with migraine & headaches for over 10 years and during this time I've tried everything - different tablets, acupuncture, Chinese tea, diets & food intolerance tests. My sister suggested trying a chiropractor. I've been attending the Back to Health Chiropractor for a few months now and have noticed an improvement. My headaches have greatly reduced and I have recently gone a month migraine free. Finally, I found someone who is treating the root of my problem and not just controlling the pain!
I am quite happy with the level of care that I have received from Back to Health and I find the staff very friendly in my dealings with them.
I was in a car accident in 1993, I suffered whiplash for about a year. Between 1995-1996 it came back. I had severe pain on the right hand side of my neck and suffered from pins and needles in my right arm. These pins and needles where so severe that i couldn't lift my arm and i didn't have any feeling in my thumb or little finger. I went to a doctor for treatment and the doctor sent me to a physio which didnt help at all. After about 18 months it went.
In 2002 i was at a Funfair and i got a jolt and it brought it all back. Again i went to the doctors and physio and it didn't help nor did taking any pain killers.
My pain started when I woke one morning with a crick in my neck which I then had for approx two days.
The pain then seemed to work its way into my forearm which I then had constantly for the past nearly 5 months now & I decided to go to my GP to have it checked out & she suggested I have a Nerve Conduction Study test done.
My GP said she would organise this which she did but a couple of weeks later I had a letter from Tallaght Hospital saying I was out of the catchment area to have the test done @ this Hospital and advised me to contact my GP to refer me to St.James’s Hospital.
