Need to see one pretty urgently.

Any recommendations?

HuddsLass Wed 27-Aug-08 21:53:17

I go here and have been very happy with the results.

Tobermory Wed 27-Aug-08 21:55:43

huddslass, after much googling that's who I've opted for. Have app. Tomorrow afternoon. Who do you see?

oh, probably too late to add to this if you've booked already, but I go here. One of the partners is the wife of a colleague of DHs and used to do sports physio with the England rugby league team. she is very very good.

PL himself.

Back is virtually better.

Tobermory Wed 27-Aug-08 22:05:38

Im seeing him too. Can only dream of a better back, god it hurts!

LDC- more choice for me is a bad thing. Will bear in mind just in case. Ta

It's truly awful, isn't it?

Good luck - hope it gets sorted soon.

I can recommend a fab osteopath here

Hope you get sorted with your back. I have had problems with mine for the first time this year and have never ever known such pain. First time round I just drugged myself up, it never really got better, then second time it just left me completely imobile. Took about seven sessions but then was fine, although I must admit, four months down the line and I am feeling the odd twinge now and then sad

fatzak, what exactly is an osteopath? How dobthey differ from Physio?

fatzak Wed 27-Aug-08 22:32:15

Not sure! When I go to the osteopath, he does some deep muscle kind of massagey-type thing to begin with, but then does the clicking all the bones back into place thing. When I went for the first time, they found out that my sacro-iliac (spelling??) joint ( big one at bottom of spine/pelvis)was out of place, so as a result I had been over compensating and throwing my body to one side. I ended up with a muscle which was over tight and trapping my sciatic nerve (did you know that your sciatic nerve is as wide as your thumb - no wonder it bloody hurts) The first time he clicked my joints back into place, you've never heard anything like it!!

Tobermory Wed 27-Aug-08 22:36:37

oMG sounds painful!

fatzak Wed 27-Aug-08 22:41:31

The first time was, now its just more clicking than anything!! Between you and me (because no one else will be reading I hope!!) I have this huge fear of farting when he pushes and rolls me over ( God, that sounds dirty doesn't it!)

Where abouts are you Tobermory? (being v nosy here as I'm in between Hudds and Wakefield!!!)

LackaDAISYcal Wed 27-Aug-08 22:53:23

pmsl fatzak grin...I've been to an osteo before and felt the same...all that loosening up of things!

I felt it was a very surreal experience, being manipulated and manhandled by a stranger when lying in my undies.

Osteo is a bit more holistic than a physio and does all the bone manipulation which I've never had from a physio. Well worth it if the problem is mechanical rather than muscular ime.

Tobermory Wed 27-Aug-08 22:56:42

No one will be reading. Are you implying I start a dull thread?!?!
All that poggling is bound to be at least a bit awkward?
The first time I went to the rubbish nhs Physio no one warned me that I should take shorts or wear big pants ! blush
I live close to a mining museum . Dont know how subtle to be!

fatzak Wed 27-Aug-08 23:08:15

Oh very near to me Tobermory!! I'm in Flockton( I never divulge anything on here anyway so i will just say where I am - well apart from my farting phobia at the osteopath!!)

I actually keep my jeans on so there's not any embarrasing flesh on show (and there's enough of mine thats for sure!!)

Tobermory Wed 27-Aug-08 23:15:14

Oooh, I'm in the next village! Wierd! Come to flockton regularly to pick up parcels from PO up the annoyingly steep slope!

fatzak Wed 27-Aug-08 23:18:05

Oh but isn't he friendly in the Post office!! There's another MNetter in Flockton who I only met on here despite being able to able to see her house from mine!!

Tobermory Thu 28-Aug-08 09:56:56

Now, every time i drive through Flockton and see a woman with pushchair/child am gonna be wonderign if its you!

fatzak Thu 28-Aug-08 12:15:47


HuddsLass Thu 28-Aug-08 15:53:32

Well Tobermory, I guess by now you'll have found out that keeping jeans on isn't an option smile

I've had to learn NOT to go in jeans, in fact, because the first time I did, I realised I was displaying a HUGE indentation around my middle blush.

Tobermory Thu 28-Aug-08 16:58:18

Huddslass, thanks for the warning shock shock

Wishing i had opted for sensible pants this morning! blush x 1000!
