I slipped 4 discs, got sciatica, chronic back and neck pain and spent 10 months being unable to walk. I was a university rower, that injured in a training accident.
After seeing 9 experts - physios, osteopaths, chiropractors and doctors all who couldn’t help me I eventually found Ann Redgrave who was a doctor for the GB rowing squad and she said “you’ve got 2 choices Alexander Technique or Surgery” . She then told me surgery had a 50% chance of being paralyzed from the waist down. As you could expect, I was desperate to learn more about the Technique and connected with multiple teachers who came through their own injuries. It was difficult for me because I was taking so many pain killers but after 3 months I was walking again. And although I went on to slip discs a total of 7 times doing all kinds of other sports and activities, each time I put myself back into with very simple exercises I can personally teach you.
I'm going to show you one simple exercise here. But I do want to give you a word of warning. It can be painful to do this by yourself. If you experience pain, stop and contact me before going any further. Watch the video to see the exercise.
This is a very gentle hands on technique that helps with Back Pain, Neck Pain, Sciatica, Slipped Discs, Shoulder Pain, RSI, Osteoarthritis, Chronic Pain, Scoliosis, Hypermobility, Pregnancy-Related Discomfort And Pain, High Blood Pressure, Insomnia, Asthma, Poor posture, Stroke Recovery, Headaches and Migraines, as well as many other pain related conditions. This works alongside the natural functioning of your body.
We work on a table and sitting and standing in a chair. Most of our bad habits that cause us pain are accumulated in these positions. If we can improve our use in these positions, we can do the same in other ones too. There is no cracking joints back into place.
As a comparison, if you have back pain and go to a chiropractor, they will know where everything needs to move. But they will use force and won't show you how to fix the root cause of the pain. The effects of their adjustments can wear off quickly, which is why you have to keep going back.
So this exercise is just a taste of what we will cover...and not a full solution. But I can show you how to recover from back pain using simple techniques...that once you have them...you can reuse them for life. So book your free taster session now to start your journey towards a pain free life today.
