I am a landscaper and have suffered from lower back pain for more than 10 years. I would tweak something and just work around the pain for 1 – 4 weeks at a time before it would settle, this would happen several times a year for this whole time. This has always had an impact on my life, sometimes being almost immobile for a week at a time.
I wouldn’t say I was skeptical of Chiropractors, but I was concerned (scared if I’m honest) about having an area that was already very painful manipulated. Finally around 6 months ago I tweaked something again, but this time the pain was more extreme than usual and after a weak it had not eased at all. Reluctantly, I did some searching and was able to secure an appointment to see Dr Peter. We went through a process of assessment to determine the extent and real location/s of my issues that would manifest into my lower back pain. This process was thorough, and Dr Peter went well beyond what I expected to explain and ensure that I was understanding what my issues were. No adjustments or manipulation was done before Dr Peter had completely reviewed the results of this assessment.
Long story short, my pain was relieved to minor discomfort after around 2 visits. I have not had a re-lapse into my usual cycle since becoming a patient of Dr Peter. He is genuinely focussed on helping me repair the damage caused by my 10 years of ignoring an obvious problem. The whole experience has been quite the opposite of everything that I feared for 10+ years and I only wish I had made an appointment all those years ago instead of living with it for soooo long.
My sincere hope in writing this review, is that it may help alleviate any concern you may have and encourage you to make an appointment with the VERY friendly and helpful team at Hinterland Chiropractic much sooner that I did.
