"Back pain"

About: Gracefield Gardens

(as the patient),

I have been suffering from a bad back for over 5 years. I tore something when I was undertaking fieldwork (I collect insects) and subsequently suffered in, sometimes for weeks on end, with a continuous nagging pain at best or being completely debilitated at worse. I tried a chiropractor, a osteopath and acupuncture with no long term success. Finally I was referred to St Thomas' and then onto the physio section at Gracefield gardens. The first physio I saw was far to nice to me and I didn't do the exercises. but the second man, and sadly I cant remember what he was called, was excellent. He was spot on about how to deal with me, what exercises I need to do and more specifically why. And then when I went for a follow up he was able to give me further exercises to enable me to start running again.

I have now been without pain for months and am running, surfing and enjoying my life once more.

massive thank you!
