"I have premature degeneration of the discs in my upper spine, soft tissue rheumatism in my knees and osteo and inflammatory arthritis in both hands. I also suffer from fibromyalgia which causes pain and stiffness in most joints and muscles. As yet, there are no proven cures for these conditions. Many people find the combination of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs and paracetamol to be beneficial but they do have side effects.
Several years ago, I was put in touch with the SK Complementary Medical Practice by a friend who suffered from back problems. She found that her treatments were so helpful that she was eventually able to return to horse riding. I have found that regular sessions at SK have helped greatly to ease my rheumatism and arthritis symptoms.
I was advised that, given my knee and back problems, activities such as cycling and jogging were out of the question. Swimming on a regular basis, however, does not put a strain on my body, which is supported by the buoyancy of the water and I have found it helpful in improving my muscle tone and reducing the discomfort of the fibromyalgia.
People with rheumatism, arthritis or fibromyalgia may well find, as I have, that regular sessions with the SK Complementary Medical Practice will ease their symptoms and enable them to lead a much more normal life." Name supplied
