As mentioned in a couple of recent posts, I have been in agony with sciatica as a result of some gardening work, I could barely move a month ago and wasn’t sleeping at all.
The NHS Doctor gave me painkillers but they did very little relief of the pain and nothing to get me mobile again.
So, I visited the local Chinese Doctor for Massage and Acupuncture. Two sessions and advice on where to self-massage with a tennis ball was the start to recovery and today I walked in (pain-free) to see him and offer my thanks.
For anyone else in back-pain agony, I can strongly recommend massage and acupuncture, it worked for me.
If you live in Sheffield, I went to The Chinese Doctor in the Hillsborough Shopping Centre. Great friendly place and it’s covered by many medical insurance schemes (Westfield, etc)
