I’m a local skateboarder and I pulled my neck and back doing a gap. I couldn’t move my head or even stand up without a lot of pain, so I contacted Alba. Within three weeks, I was back on the board – with no pain – and I am in better shape now than I have been for years!
The treatment I have received has been outstanding and I now feel that I have my quality of life back, which includes playing golf. I have been playing for 19 years, but it had been six months since I picked up my clubs because of my back problems. Now, I am looking forward to getting back into the ‘swing’. As for Alba, you will not find better!
I was unable to fully exercise or play properly with my five-year-old girl, but after treatment with the superlative Kristy, my movement is much freer and the pain has relatively gone. Most importantly, I’m able to run and cartwheel with my daughter – and I feel 20 years younger!
I am a 15-year-old dancer and have been suffering from sciatic-like pains for over two years. I had tried a range of different treatments – ranging from doctors to physiotherapists – but nothing seemed to work. I eventually decided to try chiropractic and chose Alba based upon the outstanding qualifications of Jemma and her husband. Jemma has been very positive right from the beginning and diagnosed an understandable reason for my pains. I have been receiving treatment for around eight weeks and the improvement has been tremendous. I am now able to do things my body was unable to do before treatment.”
I came to Alba because I had a pain in my coccyx, which kept me awake at night and unable to sit on the sofa comfortably. I am only four weeks into my treatment, but already I can sit on the sofa and my chair at work. I no longer get woken up in the night by the pain, and there are some days when the pain is gone, which has encouraged me to keep doing the exercises that Jemma gives me to do between visits. I have also discovered that my short-term memory has improved, which is fantastic.
I had been enduring sciatica, lower back and right hip pain for several months, which was responding to painkillers. It was restricting what I could do in my daily life, such as fun activities with my children, and I was putting maintenance jobs off around the house. After my first adjustment, I started to improve and, by six weeks, my symptoms had been resolved. Advice on my back posture at work and whilst driving has helped prevent recurrences of my problem, and I was fitted with an orthotic sole insert following a scan, which has taken pressure off my spine.
I suffer very badly with tight shoulders and back, and tension in my neck, head and jaw. Following a recommendation from my son to see Kristy for treatment, as he had studied with her at college, I made the appointment and went to my initial visit. Kristy immediately put me at ease – explaining exactly what she was going to be doing with me and how much pressure she would apply, which I found to be extremely helpful. Kristy is very much a people person and I would recommend her 100 percent to anybody I know.
I find all of the staff friendly and my treatment here from Alex has not only helped me mobility-wise, but has also put an end to my dependency on prescriptive medications. I would like to thank everyone at Alba, but especially ‘Dr Magic’ Alex – a truly unique individual and practitioner.
