Almost 20 years ago, ex-professional swimming coach Helen Brooke was diagnosed with nodules on her spine: a painful and debilitating condition that prevented her from undertaking basic everyday tasks, such as gardening and playing with her children.
“Despite the condition being relatively common, I was told by my GP that, other than prescribing painkillers, there was nothing he could do. I knew that painkillers merely mask pain: they don’t solve the underlying problem, and there’s a danger if I wasn’t feeling the pain, I’d cause even more damage. I tried everything, none of which worked. If anything, some actually aggravated the pain.
“I was extremely frustrated at watching on the sidelines while everyone went about their daily lives. I was desperate to try anything that might be able to help me – that’s when I came across Frameworks. To be honest, as I had already tried so many treatments, I wasn’t expecting them to be able to fix my problems.
“What followed was simply amazing! Frameworks quickly identified that the root cause of my problems lay in the position of my back: my shoulders were at one angle and my hips at another. After just a few sessions Frameworks was able to rectify this and after a just a few months I was able to move freely and do all the things that I had previously not been able to.
“After nearly 20 years of pain and frustration Frameworks has quite literally given me my life back.”
