Testimonial - Multiple Sclerosis (MS)The following testimonial has been voluntarily supplied and reproduced in full.
Jayne Hogg, August 2011
I was diagnosed with MS over 18 years ago, and for the most part, the symptoms were manageable. However over the last three years things have been getting progressively worse, so I thought I would try and see if there were any other treatments available that would help me.
This was the part at which I found Garry and the Hares Clinic in Sawtry. I have been attending sessions with him for the past seven months, and although he will never cure me (I wish!), he has definitely improved and assisted even the basic standard of living, through trigger point therapy and acupuncture.
The most noticeable for me is that when I first went to see him I had quite noticeable 'foot drop' in my left leg and foot (it is exactly what it sounds like, no use or control in the left foot, making walking very stilted and dragging your left foot).
After no more than four weeks, that disappeared and has never re-appeared. The work on my legs is ongoing though to relieve the tightness that has built up through my posture, adjusting and compensating for the loss of use in the left side of my body.
Since I have been seeing Garry, my overall walking has improved, as it not as stilted as it was, and it is definitely easier to co-ordinate my legs than it was!
Both Garry and Alison are very friendly, and spend the time to explain what they are doing and what the benefits will be for me.
