As a long term back sufferer (prolapsed disc (L4/L5) back in 2000), I could barely put my socks and need a least 30 minutes of quiet sitting before my back could face the day. Without realising I’d become adept at changing my life style to accommodate my lack of mobility.
I had been through the NHS and private physiotherapy route and really hadn’t made much joy on that front either. Slowly I had resigned myself to a life time of pain and discomfort thinking no one could fix my problem.
The internet threw up several options but the one that struck a chord was co-located at my local surgery. Having had lots of dealing with the practice, I knew that they would have done their research and appointed someone of good calibre and with the right qualifications.
Rishi was very upfront with me saying that he may not be unable to cure me ( as too much damage had occurred) but said he would certainly be able to help. My back began to stabilise, the inflammation reduce and my flexibility returned. I began to be able to do things I hadn’t done in a while. I could put my socks on, get down to do the weeding, have a good night sleep and not take quite so long to get going in the morning. My energy levels increased and I could stand for longer without getting back ache. Happy days!
Rishi is an affable cheery chappy, who has restored both my faith in the medical profession and in myself. I’m extremely happy with progress, and if it means I can move and not end up under the knife then that’s good enough for me. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anybody.
Thanks Doc! J
