My Story with Chronic Pain
Chronic pain is tough and frustrating, and unless you’ve experienced it, it’s hard to understand the impact it can have. At age 16 I developed severe RSI and chronic back pain. I was so frustrated because nobody could tell me why I’d developed these conditions while others around me had not. I felt like I had to protect my body because it was weak and I couldn’t do the activities I wanted. The lowest point came when my girlfriend at the time had to wash my hair because my hands hurt so much.
Over the years I saw GPs, specialists and tried a number of therapies but nothing gave lasting benefits and no-one seemed to understand what I was going through. In the end I decided I had to fix myself rather than have someone fix me. I read countless books on pain and how the body works. I did daily stretches and exercises and eventually cured myself by improving my posture.
Years later I started asking myself “what do I really want to do with my life?” and it finally came to me – help people live pain free! Within 3 weeks I started a Masters Degree in Osteopathy, and after 3 years of training, I felt that incorrect posture was the root cause of most of the pain in the patients we were treating. I now needed a trusted method for dealing with it. Thankfully, I discovered The Egoscue Method, a form of Posture Correction Therapy. I left Osteopathy and qualified as a Postural Alignment Specialist certified by Egoscue Institute in early 2013. Fast forward to today and I help clients in 2 clinics in London, and around the world on Skype and with online courses.
If you want to improve your posture because you’re currently in pain, or you’re not happy with how you look, or you want to stay pain free, then you’re in the right place!
