Dr Mark Simclair practises in Albany, Auckland, New Zealand.
I am one who visualises chiropractors as “cracking” this or that bone or joint!
I have seen how Mr X pays a hefty sum for each session of alternative therapy only to hear a “crack” here and there and cringe!
I immediately visualise all “them bones coming asunder” as if like Jenga toppling 😂
So when sister swore by Dr Mark as “good”, I was wary….very wary!
But by noon time, my thighs were screaming foul…pain in measurement of 9 out of my pain Richter scale of maximum 10.
Hobson’s choice, I had to go as Auckland has more chiropractors than medical specialists readily available.
Thankfully sister knows him well and he saw me as a squeezed in patient.
My trouble begins… in the pain department.
My admiration for Dr Mark went up a notch when he warned me against letting any chiropractor manipulate my bones or joints!
His technique was nerve manipulations and using the brain with zones mapped out, he treats pain through points, no accupressure but nerve manipulation.
I was “pinched” and poked or prodded with fingers but felt good relieve after.
My problem lies with no follow up on nerve injury post operation.
My chin and head postures were not aligned and my feet were walking out of sync with my hip.
I was told not to sleep with a pillow and that I needed 3 sessions or more to resolve my pain.
Admittedly, he said that I have high threshold for pain and he hoped that I could have all that removed.
Trouble is….how do I find time npw hanging around Albany area to sort self out through his treatment and forego sightseeing….my conundrum!
Ah well….we will see where I visit today…..my journey continues on!
