After four months of pain and discomfort, I attended an Advanced Physiotherapy Practitioner Clinic on the 21st March 2016.
What an absolute breath of fresh air, after all those months of suffering, I just wish I could have seen Bury Integrated MSK Service sooner.
My assigned Practitioner was professional and very thorough but also friendly and understanding. I was given a comprehensive clinical assessment and at last I felt as though things were being taken seriously. The Practitioner took the time to discuss the possible causes of my problem and really could not have been more helpful.
From that point things moved very quickly, an MRI Scan was arranged, a prolapsed disc identified and I have been referred to Neurosurgery at Salford Royal. Hopefully I won't have to wait too long for the surgery.
During the course of this process we spoke several times on the telephone, which I found to be very reassuring.
I would recommend this Service without reservation, without it I feel I would still be no nearer to a resolution.
