No comments on the deal but about chiropractic in general. Please be very wary of using this type of pseudo-scientific medicine. It is not science based and this practice uses terms like subluxation and applied kinesiology. You get some interesting results if you google the words "applied kinesiology scam"

Always sceptical of deals like these. It's like taking your car for a half price MOT - you get loured in by the half price thing then they somehow find loads of stuff wrong and charge a fortune to fix.

Personally spinal touch therapy is much more effective & long lasting than any chiropractic methods. Whether you believe in it or not, it certainly works & works very well yielding very impressive results. No offense inferred to anyone but methods have evolved.....

Interesting deal. I have been diagnosed with a large disc herniation. NI is a bit far away for me though and I think im beyond this treatment anyway. Cheap if you can get an MRI out of them.

Ive had and now got another herniated disc, went to see a chiropractor about 7 years ago now and my god did they ever make my pain 1000 times worse!
my advice if you have this is to see your gp who will refer you to a specialist, ive had a disc fusion and disc removal in 2005 which lead to the disc above becoming herniated.
If the chiropractor is any good they will refuse to treat you because you need medical help to solve your problems not being poked, stretched and prodded by someone
cold from me sorry as from personal experience they are a waste of money and to be perfectly honest crap at what they say they can do!

my local place does this all the time... and then want to book you in chiropractor not as good as osteopath (in my opinion) chiropractor, puts block under your hips, tells you your back is out of line, bangs the pedal on the machine, leaves you sitting on blocks...... goes on and makes a tea for him/herself come back later.... cash goodbye.

osteopath hand on and better, although I am too far gone for anything sadly.
#12
I use one and have done for years. Don't think they "cure" anything as such but I have had far less back and neck pain than I used to (got it regular down one side)

Like many service providers they offer special deals to get people in. Think our one offers exactly the same deal

There are some surgeons that are fitting the replacement titanium disk (spring) now and its really good, not many do it though and the NHS fob you of with the old fused method, all the old method does is put extra stress on the next disc..... the new spring is much better...... but with cutbacks I have no chance now.

My wifes doctor gave her 2 years before she would be in a wheelchair after 3 car accidents (not her fault) but 5 years on & after 2-3 treatments & a topup every 6months she is 90% better. She can actually walk for over 3miles now....
It were a structural engineer, who was a chiropractor, who developed this therapy.

Use it people, youll wish you would have done it years ago. Its amazing that chiropractors are re-training in this method as it is more effective than traditional techniques.

chiropractors are arguably worse than homeopaths. And I had a look over the spinaltouch website/video and it's just vague biomechanics. A physio/orthotist/osteopath/orthopaedic surgeon would be a far, far better bet.

i would love to solve my back problem, had a bad fall while on a trampoline course back in 2006 and been in pain since, took 18 months for MRI from NHS to tell me i have bulging disks and nerve impingement on my L1,2,3,4 the pain is always there but medication currently opioid which helps take off the edge, getting off the pills and getting some life back would be a definite plus. Had 3 epidural lumber procedures as well but no effect. Under spinal specialist at kings collage London now but doesn't look like I'm a candidate for operation, sadly probably due to more cutbacks.

I would suggest that all these alternative methods are hogwash and should be avoided. If they really worked they would be standard practice..not alternative. This is the way that medical practice works. It uses the scientific methos. Any theory needs to be peer reviewed. Unfortunatly some of the practices of chiropractors and spinal touch practitioners fail.

I had a ruptured disc and had it MRI scanned and operated on under the NHS. The whole process took less than a year. Maybe it's a postcode lottery though.

Osteopath best way to go I had something that made my arm feel like it was broken after visiting hospital for 2 months and them not helping apart from them giving me strong painkillers. A friend advised to go see a Osteopath and he straight away after looking at my back said you have a trapped nerve in your back after I left there I felt like a new person I hadnt took painkillers the morning of going just incase he needed to find where the pain came from but he see it straight away. I went back a second time as he said after 2 months it would be really bad in there but after that no pain at all.had it a couple of years later and went straight back to hm straight away just for 1 visit. It was caused by sitting on a train for 2 hours a day bent over reading a newspaper.

yeah constant pain down left leg and left lower back, sometimes suddenly shifts to other side but pain 24/7 depressive isnt it? if only there was a magic cure. Tried all sorts physio, exercise,tens not help.

I have a feeling an epidural will be recommended. But this won't actually cure the problem and my worry is that the pain relief will just be hiding the problem, not helping it.

DIgital X Rays (if required)......no radiographer should ever agree to do an X Ray on a back, very high amount of radiation required AND it gives no information. In the NHS, back XRays are not done for that reason (radiation overdose).

The only way to diagnose spinal problem with radiology is with an MRI scan. Very worrying that they should advertise this

FLUFFEEMUFFEE If someone did that to my spine i would be screaming and climbing the walls!
BustyB293 thanks for that , My surgeon ( if i ever get to see him) is talking about having another disc removal/fusion for L1,2,3 as 4,5 are already fused.

Ive waited over 18 months since my last MRI scan to have the results and im still on the waiting list as urgent!
my problems started when i was 13 years old , old so & so who lived next door swung open a solid cast iron gate onto my back and its taken 21 years to find out what i had wrong with my spine other then being told its because im tall ( i am) so now 28 years later im in a worse state then before. I was told i would be in a wheelchair by the time i was 40 and this is the only reason i had the operation.
ive had every treatment you can think of including being stretched and nothing worked,
so now after the operation im left with degenerate disc disease ,prolapsed discs and sciatica.
Ive run out of options with pain killers other then morphine which my GP wont give me because of my age so we are starting again with them
my advice to anyone who has back problems is to see your GP, get professional help none of this rubbish with alternative medicine it doesnt work and your wasting your money believe me ive tried them all over the years and spent hundreds on it.
#29
People with long term pain should consider private consultation to access surgery. After a cervical foraminotomy by a leading surgeon out of Windsor and Charring Cross I was surprised to find that my procedure (inc MRI and 3 out patient appointments) cost in the region of £10,000. If I'd known that 5 years ago when I wasn't covered by Private medical insurance at work; I'd have borrowed the money.
#30
the spinal injections work for the short term nothing long term, epidural is the best out of the 4 i had, but remember they will only give you 3 of any spinal injections, after this you will need to seek more medical advice
i had steroid injections, epidural, silicone and another one i cant remember the name of. you are awake for them but they do numb the area

I think everyone would agree that not all alternative therapies work for everyone. But then not all medical treatments work for everyone, but that does they are hogwash? Some so-called alternative therapies are now widely used within the NHS, reflexology being one of them, not to mention homeopathy and acupuncture etc etc. Would they be utilising these therapies if they had no therapeutic benefits?

Over 18 months to get the results of the MRI is horrendous. When I went to Vista Diagnostics, they gave me the CD after I came out of the changing room and my consultant got a copy within 24hrs along with a report.

Pay the money. It is worth it. As for any procedures/op's I am not sure on the cost private, but when I see the NHS specialist in a couple of days I will already be armed with an MRI and a report from an orthopeadic surgical consultant.

This is a good place to go

I think you will find that spinal touch is actually the most gentle treatment you could possibly receive. It is designed to be a very light touch so that anyone can benefit from it. It is widely used even for people who have suffered with bone cancer. My wife had every painkiller known to man...which did nothing and she was in constant pain..this was the only therapy that gave her any relief. She had got to the point where she would rather have no leg than suffer the sciatic pain any more! I can only speak from experience, everyone's journey is different and everyone will take a different path. All I am saying is please don't discount anything until you have at least looked into it.

I doubt if your GP will have heard about it, my wife's doctor what not really much use with anything other than giving a prescription. The good news is though a treatment is not expensive, should be around £30.00, and you should only need 2 or 3 initially. My wife's therapist says if there is no marked improvement after the second treatment she will not continue, as it is not the right therapy for the job! I have posted a link to a website http://www.spinaltouch.org which gives you a list of practitioners and some extra info if you are interested. I really do hope that you can find some relief as I know how devestating this can be on your whole life. But there is hope out there.
