“Although I recently turned 60, I consider myself a relatively fit and healthy person. However, over the past 10 months, I noticed pains creeping up in my left shoulder for which my GP prescribed a course of anti-inflammatory tablets. Unfortunately, this did not help at all. Also, my neck started to give me severe discomfort and restricted my movements quite considerably e.g. when reversing the car or turning around.
Increasingly it felt as if I was carrying another person on my shoulders, which was painful throughout the day, but also affected my sleep, I woke up several times during the night. It was at this stage that a friend suggested I should perhaps visit an osteopath and recommended Joanna Young. I noticed an improvement even after the initial treatment; Joanna massaged the knotted neck muscles and made them relax.
I work in an office and sit at the PC most of the day which is not ideal, but Joanna gave me advice on some light exercise I could follow during work time sitting at my PC. I had 3 more sessions and each time Joanna explained to me what may have caused the pain, how she was treating it and what effect I should be expecting afterwards. Not only did I find it very interesting, but with this ‘education’ and targeted exercise I hope to maintain the pain-free and supple feeling I am enjoying now. I would have no hesitation of recommending the services of Joanna Young to any person experiencing similar problems; my only regret is that I did not see her sooner.”
