Sciatic pain can be debilitating, especially when combined with severe lower back pain due to congenital issues and herniated discs.
When I arrived in Tim’s room after 12 months of travel around France on sabbatical, I felt like a complete wreck and was convinced that I would need back surgery.
It wasn’t the first time that I’ve had this problem, but it was clear that this time it was becoming chronic.
After listening to my sad tale of woe, Tim took my various x-rays, CT scans, and colourful nuclear bone scans home with him to carefully peruse them. The following week, he calmed my worst fears by saying that time, rest, and good physio was all that was needed to get me back enjoying my life again.
Within a couple of weeks, I noticed a definite improvement in my lower back pain and, after 6 weeks, it had settled right down.
We are now working together, more specifically on the sciatica, a somewhat more stubborn pain. I’m feeling confident though that in the near future that too will settle.
Tim instills confidence with his calm, intelligent approach as he explains the mechanics of the problem and how to resolve it.
While his knowledge and skills are extensive, Tim also has that rare gift of intuition. I feel like I am in good hands.
