My Name is Sandy Payne, I am 56 years old.
I have had back problems since 1992 due to collapsed vertebrae, and underwent an operation in 1993 in the hope of reducing the excess pain I was having.
After the operation the pain was still there and the Doctor advised that he could perform further operations, but my decision was to forgo this and live with the pain.
My nights were spent sleeping in the upright position as every time I turned in bed the pain was unbearable and woke me up, and I found it more comfortable to sleep this way.
Eventually a friend of mine got in touch with Jacquie Simpson who practises MyoReformation.
I was a bit sceptical at first, but just after the first few sessions with her, my back started to loosen up and feel a bit better. Although the pain was still there, at least I could bend a bit more.
I have been going to Jacquie on a regular basis, once a month for the past few years.
This has certainly helped me a lot as the pain is much less especially after a session. I am able to sleep relatively comfortably in bed and can turn over without waking up.
Obviously the pain has not gone away entirely but it is now bearable, and I can walk.
I have visited specialists in the neuro system – in particular the vertebrae – and when they saw the x-rays, MRI and CT scans, they were amazed that I was able to walk at all, and said that I should be in a wheel chair and paralyzed from the waist down. The Doctor obviously advised me to continue doing what I was with Jacquie, as it was working.
Jacquie has been an inspiration to me to keep me fit and walking, if it wasn’t for my friend introducing me to Jacquie I would be in a wheel chair.
I wish there were more people who do what Jacquie is doing, to help people in the same condition as me.
