As a physio I have many cases I can recall. Here’s one:
This patient’s history began suddenly in the autumn 2016 with increasing frequency and increased debilitation of sickness and headaches. Losing school days and social life.
The teenage school girl, who I’ll call Zoe, was admitted to hospital for 10 days, under went many investigations and was treated for acute kidney dehydration due to cyclic vomiting.
Once the Consultant team had gained a small element of control of the cyclic vomiting, Zoe was discharged to explore alternative therapies with 3 meds to control sickness and manage pain.
PHYSIOTHERAPY was one of her first choices with the greatest story. Of course, many things have helped her regain control but there is no doubt that a course of myofascial release restored her equilibrium and gradually she increased her activity and learnt to self-treat her condition.
A further break-through was achieved when she forgot her medication one weekend away and thus began using the Gravity system. Medications can often confuse symptoms so this mistake turned out to be beneficial.
Gravity is a useful tool for people who need help regaining their posture and help reducing their pain. http://www.gravitylife.co.uk and in stock at wwwbrightwellphysiotherapy.co.uk
Now as we approach 2019 I can safely say the schoolgirl is managing her now clearly migrainous condition independently, following her refound hobby of dance with school and fully joining in with all other activities.
