Get cracked and stretched
Have you ever been in so much pain for such a long time that it becomes a part of your everyday normal life? You can't run because your back is twisted, you have four bulging discs and to top it off, every year or so your back goes into multiple spasms just to have you back in hospital and at physio three or four times a week?
I did and for almost 20 years. I was in and out of hospital, constantly taking days off work and worst of all, on so much medication that it made me crazy. No more!
During my last painful bout of back spasms that lasted almost 5 months and three regular visits to see a physiotherapist who was great, I was allowed to walk all by myself (yes that's how bad I was). While on my little old lady walking stick, I ran into an old 'Chi in the park' friend who told me that he had found an amazing Osteopathy place in Mascot. I was feeling desperate so I tried it out. I have never looked back.
I was fortunate enough to see Dr Kuan Ng, one of two other doctors that practice there. Dr Kuan acknowledges the link between a healthy mind, body and spirit. He has successfully treated people for postural pain and musculoskeletal conditions for over 20 years.
While on my last visit, one of his clients, who we will call Mr X, gave me permission to watch Dr Kuan work on him, I felt very privileged. Mr X said that he found this place 1 year ago and now goes back for maintenance once a year or so.
Taking time to explain how our bodies and mind work together was a lot to take in. I have not had a back spasm since I saw him on the 9th of June 2012. In the beginning my visits were weekly and now every two to three months. I can put my hand on my heart and recommend his work if you are willing to listen to him and do the homework.
