Liz – Touching her toes again!

Aug 26, 2018

I am a 59 year old care worker from Articlave. I have gone through physio with  Laura after having had back pain and sciatica for 6 weeks and regular pain meds. Before my sciatica started I had a 20 year history of ongoing back pain.

I always said I suffered from nurse’s sore back, I honestly feel this is how I thought of my back ache. This had a profound effect on how I went about my daily activities, I dreaded going work as I knew my back would be sore at end of the shift. My back affected everything, looking after my 2 active grandsons, I would talk myself easily out of walking the dogs or going to the parks, beaches because of my pain. On reflexion I thought of myself as old and not able to do much because of my back pain.

However after a few months on with Laura’s help and positive outlook I walk twice daily, exercise regularly and am now feeling the benefits of a stronger back, improved balance and I can touch my toes after exercises – something I never dreamt of doing before! I have been having rehabilitation exercises, dry needling and attending an over 50’s Back Care Class all at Causeway Physio & Pilates.

I cannot sing the praises off Causeway Physio & Pilates enough. I am off pain meds and returning to work shortly with a fitter, healthier back and a changed frame of mind.

Many thanks to Laura and all the team.
