"Nine years ago in 2006 I had a serious head injury which left me with long term concussion, neck pain, a ruptured disc in my neck, lower back pain, hearing loss resulting in tinnitus which gave me permanent dizziness and the feeling of being “drunk”. Also I had loss of balance and speech difficulty resulting in many months absence from work. I had CT scans, MRI scans and steroid injections in my neck. A Neurologist told me that my condition would take years to improve and I would have to learn to live with it.
So I did learn to live with it. My life changed from being a lively, active and very humorous person to a dull non-active or interesting person. I began attending a Chiropractic Practice in Bristol from 2006 to 2015 [not Ben!] the sessions helped my condition but I never felt “normal” nor as outgoing as before.
Unfortunately in 2008 I had another accident falling onto my face and my pelvis took a hard fall on to concrete and I have been in pain ever since. By2015 I moved to Shepton Mallet, circumstances changed and after the move my right leg and hip appeared to be getting worse and I also have osteoarthritis as well. By chance I found a new Chiropractor at “Mendip Chiropractic” and this is where I met Ben. When I attended the first session I could hardly walk, I had to use a walking stick to lean on, and simple daily tasks became just about impossible. By the end of the 2nd session and after a few “correction” clicks and “twists” to my neck, I have to admit that I was very emotional - for the first time in 9 years the dizziness suddenly stopped, I felt “clear” in my head, the pain in my leg seemed less, I was able to walk back to the car park without the use of my walking stick!!
I have attended 6 sessions so far and at the end of each one I feel so much better, more like myself.
I met a friend who had not seen me for several years and knew the difficulties I had suffered in the past. When he saw me he said ”My God! You are like the old you again. You are so different!!” He is not the only one to have noticed such a change in my well-being. My personality has returned to its former glory, the leg and right hip pain is 95% gone, I can walk almost normally again, a slow gait but NO pain, not like it was before I started using “Mendip Chiropractic”
It has made a huge difference to my life and I can start enjoying myself again.
Anyone who tries the treatment at “Mendip Chiropractic” will not be disappointed. It’s just amazing. PG. October 2015
