More recently at the age of 18 I was involved in a very serious accident whereby I sustained severe traumatic injuries to my spine. A compression fracture of L1, a burst compression fracture of L3 and many collapsed discs. I have since undergone one fusion surgery of L5/S1 which is “minor” in comparison to having a vertebral cage being inserted to replace the triangular shape L3, however due to the risk/reward factor I would only consider doing that as a very last resort. Having tried physiotherapy, hydrotherapy, yoga, operations, surgeons on 3 continents, medicinal drugs, the list is endless, you name it and I have done it with very little or no success. As a result I thought I would go and see Jacquie as a “last resort” once again, so that’s where I am. Recently I have been seeing Jacquie for 4 months twice a week and every time I walk out of her rooms I am pain free. This is however relatively short lived at the moment but with that being said treatments have been disrupted by university. 3 years of intensive use of class A drugs hasn’t helped the cause, and due to the extent of my injuries it’s going to take time. With the combination of these factors there is no quick fix and Jacquie and I will eventually get there it just takes time to sort out such a mess if you would like to call it that.
I could not recommend Jacquie highly enough for any type of injury/issue. Aside from the treatments she is very warm and welcoming with sessions actually being enjoyable now, and with results to show for it. Even when I am fully healed I still intend to see Jacquie for MyoReformation as it is absolutely fantastic for the mind and body regardless of having an injury or not.
