At the age of 68, John Allan, a jeweller hailing from Billingshurst, found himself navigating an extremely challenging phase of his life. He was plagued with severe back pain and sciatica, which presented as intense pain coursing down his leg and a persistent burning sensation in his foot. This led to a marked decline in his mobility, to the point where even standing or walking for brief periods became almost unbearable.
“The severity of my condition affected all aspects of my life, from work, hobbies, intimacy, rest and sleep. Simple tasks like washing up became a daunting ordeal due to spinal discomfort. My hobbies, such as countryside walking, fishing, and gardening, were no longer possible, and my work was impacted as I could not concentrate for long periods due to the pain.”
With a lengthy waiting list for physiotherapy and his condition worsening, John decided to seek an alternative treatment route. His quest led him to the Sussex Back Pain Clinic, where he learned about IDD Therapy – a non-invasive alternative to spinal injection or surgery.
Clinical Director Steve Morris explained that the clinic recommended a six-week course of IDD Therapy spinal decompression treatment, following the MRI scan results confirming John’s two prolapsed spinal discs.
John’s experience with IDD Therapy was a testament to patience and perseverance. Initially, it seemed that his condition was deteriorating before it started to improve towards the later end of his treatment. Eventually, though, the treatment paid off, leading to a significant turnaround in John’s life.
“I can return to all my activities which include my work, hobbies, domestic duties, and personal life. At times, when at my lowest during this condition, I thought these activities could be lost to me indefinitely. I am a keen walker which means my beloved Lake District is back in my life. I am also a gardener, fisherman, and DIY person, all of which is now possible again along with such necessities as my work life,” shares John.
John heartily recommends IDD Therapy to anyone suffering from similar pain and discomfort. His words resonate powerfully,
“Should anyone I know find themselves in my situation, with this level of pain, discomfort and life restriction, I would certainly recommend pursuing IDD Therapy before undertaking any invasive and possibly irreversible procedures.”
