There are times when back pain not only disrupts your individual comfort and daily activities, but also significantly affects those around you. Such debilitating pain can deprive you of the simple pleasures in life and drastically alter the quality of your family life.
This was Natalie’s reality. For over three years, Natalie grappled with the intense pain caused by two bulging discs in her back. Her life was dictated by her relentless back pain and accompanying sciatica. Despite undergoing numerous physiotherapy sessions, hydrotherapy, and back school sessions, she found no relief. Steroid injections became her temporary respite from the pain; however, their effectiveness dwindled over time. She contemplated surgery as the final recourse, but her surgeon hesitated given her history of two previous surgeries for disc issues. Thus, Natalie found herself grappling with the prospect of enduring chronic back pain for the foreseeable future.
‘I was unable to stand or sit for even brief durations. Working was nearly impossible, and daily chores such as grocery shopping, taking my daughter to school, and household tasks became significantly challenging. I was constantly fatigued due to the relentless pain and sleep deprivation. The persistent discomfort and sleepless nights often led to bouts of depression.‘
Fortunately, Natalie and her husband decided to explore alternatives and stumbled upon the Sussex Back Pain Clinic online. Following a comprehensive assessment, Natalie opted to commit to a six-week IDD Therapy regimen coupled with rehabilitative exercise.
‘I found IDD Therapy to be pleasant and almost therapeutic. The staff instantly made me feel comfortable during my initial visit to the treatment room. I felt some relief after my first IDD session itself. My pain levels reduced dramatically after just a week of therapy.’
Reflecting on her experience post-treatment, Natalie shared:
‘My life has improved by leaps and bounds since I underwent IDD Therapy. Most of the time, I experience minimal to no pain, and I can manage without medication. I sleep much better, which has considerably enhanced my daily life. I can now perform at work, play with my five-year-old daughter, complete household tasks, and enjoy long walks with my family. No longer do I feel the need to retreat to my bed in a futile attempt to alleviate my pain. I would undoubtedly encourage anyone suffering from chronic pain to try IDD Therapy. It has worked wonders for me. I had resigned myself to living with chronic back pain for the rest of my life. If only I had discovered IDD Therapy sooner.’
