Massage, Reiki, Acupuncture and Physiotherapy nothing worked so eventually I went to see a Consultant who sent me for Ultrasound, I had Tendonitis, Bursitis and Tenosynovitis in other words the Rotator cuff was damaged, they recommended a Cortisone injection which I did with much reluctance, that didn’t work even with 3 months physio, back to the consultant and I was told I needed another one, another 3 months physio and that didn’t work!
I had run out of options so I went back to the UK and had the shoulder manipulated under General Anaesthetic. Everything I didn’t want to do… I had yet another 3 months physio and this time I saw a bit of improvement but not enough to allow me to do simple things like wash my hair using both hands. I carried on with all the exercises I had been set and started some Yoga movements hoping this will help.
Then I spotted an Advert in one of the local papers for someone claiming to be “The Shoulder Doctor” and claiming to get more movement on the first session.
Look, I’m from Liverpool…
so I didn’t quite believe what was written but the first consultation was free and I thought what do I have to lose.
Wonderful Carla managed to slot me in and I saw Dr Bock, I kid you not on the first session I went from not being able to touch the top of my head to being able to do this and reaching just behind it… Impossible you say, well I didn’t believe it either, I went home and washed my hair with two hands, not one…
The simple explanation
is he made me think about the way I was reaching for things and showed me how to reprogramme my brain to move correctly, a simple turn of the hand made a massive difference to me. The cost was the same as a Physiotherapy session (which I had been doing for around a year, with very little difference). I’ve had 5 sessions and I can now almost touch my fingers together behind my back. Side movement is not quite there yet but we are working on it. Not twice a week like physio but once every other week or so and have time to practice. I guess he will see you as often as needed.
For me the difference is amazing, I just wish I had seen him two years ago!
All that wasted money!!!
