NO MORE SLEEPLESS NIGHTS
LOWER BACK PAIN
It all began approximately 18 months to 2 years ago. I woke in the night unable to turn over in bed, with excruciating pain in my lower back; I could not remember an incident where I had done anything to bring on such a dreadful pain. Every night I dreaded going to bed as the same pain came on and getting out of bed was very painful. I had to pass through the pain barrier while straightening my back every morning until I was standing upright. I tried to convince myself, that if I ignored it eventually ‘my body would heal itself’, but after more than twelve months passed, it was no better. I decided to see my doctor and after giving me a once over, he told me it wasn’t anything serious and that he would refer me to the local hospital physiotherapy department. I waited patiently for an appointment which took more than six weeks to come through. My first and only visit consisted of a brief examination; he told me to sleep in a chair and left me his name and telephone number just in case I felt it was necessary to contact him again. I was really let down, but I soldiered on feeling wretched from lack of sleep and lots of pain. Now my symptoms had changed from acute pain at night to chronic pain. I started to believe that this pain would be with me forever, and I would have to learn to live with it. One evening, I was surfing the internet and decided to look up Osteopaths in the Huddersfield area, near to where I work. Nina Victoria Gallagher’s name came up, so I decided to ring to check her credentials. I decided I had nothing to loose but to give her a try. My first visit was nothing short of miraculous. After this visit I still had a small amount of discomfort but, was able to turn over in bed without pain. I continued with my treatment and needed five visits altogether. As soon as my back was feeling less rigid, I was given a very good exercise to do every day. I am now feeling very optimistic to having a life without back pain and I am now confident my sleepless nights are over, for good. Should my back pain ever return, I will be straight back to see Nina.

NECK & SHOULDER PAIN
Thanks to your neck treatment…I’m 100% recovered. And thanks for all you have been able to do for my shoulder in the past weeks. I’m feeling far better nowadays thanks to you. I really appreciate your work.

Dear Nina, just a short note to thank you, for your care and gentle skills in ‘repairing’ my neck and shoulder. It was nice to know what was wrong and I hope I can be sensible and not overload the muscles. I will certainly recommend you to my ‘ageing’ friends as we slowly fall apart. Thanks for being supportive, gentle and kind.
