From Chronic Back Pain to Recovery: Tina Thrift’s Journey with IDD Therapy

Back pain is an unwelcome guest that intrudes on the lives of many. Usually, it’s a fleeting visitor, but for some, like Tina Thrift, it settles in, causing prolonged and debilitating discomfort. After a nasty fall in 2014, Tina suffered intense pain in her hips, lower back, neck, and shoulders. Her pain stemmed from a bulging disc nestled between her 4th and 5th lumbar vertebrae, which constricted the nerve pathways in her spine and hips. Despite efforts to quell the pain through osteopaths, sports therapists, epidurals, and painkiller injections, relief eluded Tina.

Living with a pain intensity ranging between 7 and 10 out of 10, Tina’s life was marked by suffering. The pain disrupted her sleep, and her favorite activities, like long walks with her husband and dog, became unbearable. Faced with the bleak options of retiring early or undergoing spinal fusion surgery, Tina sought out an alternative. That’s when she discovered IDD Therapy at the Sussex Back Pain Clinic.

After a thorough assessment, Tina began a six-week course of IDD Therapy. The team at Sussex Back Pain Clinic guided Tina through the process with kindness and expertise. Remarkably, after just two treatments, Tina noticed a dramatic decrease in her pain and started sleeping better. Four treatments later, she was virtually pain-free.

Following her course of IDD Therapy, Tina has been working on improving her spinal strength and mobility through specialist exercise rehabilitation classes, and her progress is inspiring. The crippling fatigue that once consumed her life has dissipated, and she’s enjoying activities she once had to abandon due to pain. “It’s given me the zest back for life,” Tina shares.

Reflecting on her journey, Tina is full of gratitude for the IDD Therapy she received at Sussex. She says,

“This has completely transformed my life. I honestly and truthfully cannot thank Steve, Sue, Shaun, and the team enough for giving me the opportunity to get my life back.”
