A word from my patient...


So, as a little encouragement to anyone visiting this blog who isn’t yet sure whether or not they should give Chiropractic a try, have a read about the experiences of one of my patients I have been treating for a little while.


So let me set the scene - I'm a 43-year-old man who has broken most of his bones through an active, adventurous life, including my back at the age of 14.  A serious motorbike accident 11 years ago completed the body jigsaw of breaks! I should be glowing from the radiation from X-rays and scans! With two boys, aged five and three, to chase around, the fact I suffer with aches and pains and regular migraines is no surprise. The on-set of arthritis has obviously happened but I'm lucky to have my two legs after my motorbike accident so hey ho!

But there's many more people who have suffered and continue to suffer more than me so I have a very much "get on with it" attitude but also believe you should do as much as you can to help yourself in all aspects of life, including your health.

Previously I attended a chiropractor after a demo at a show but after two consultations I didn't feel the benefit so as most people would - I stopped going.  But as the migraines increased and my neck problems persisted I did my research and it seemed a chiropractor was the correct port of call.

Laura Cunningham from Shifnal Chiropractic Clinic oozed confidence in her field and identified my "problem areas" and quickly got to work! She stressed how she never made people attend appointments for longer than they needed to which was great to hear. She wasn't telling me I needed 20 weeks of treatment at appointment one.

So returning home an hour later my wife asked how I'd got on? My answer - "fantastic" - like a weight had literally been lifted off my shoulders! I booked in for the following week and had an equally great experience if not better.

Laura's knowledge and clear explanations on why I was getting the aches and pains in the specific places enabled me to make small lifestyle changes to help myself.

Over Christmas I took a break from seeing Laura and to say I had a “pain in the neck” was an understatement and it wasn't one of my sons! It was a real pain but after my first new year appointment I am back to feeling like that "new man" Laura discovered at the end of last year.

The regularity of my appointments are now very much based solely on how I feel but fortnightly appointments have so far kept me migraine and ache free so I have no reason to change that.

It is the best money I spend - an investment in my own health, comfort and happiness but one I see results from.

As in every industry there's the good and the bad and after my previous experience of a chiropractor I surprised myself by returning to a different one but thank goodness I did.  Laura is certainly a good one - in fact exceptional - thorough, experienced, loyal and a true healer of pain.

And yes I only thought chiropractors "did backs" too - if it's a joint and if it aches or you've got a medical condition there's usually something Laura can do.

She has become known as "magic hands" in our house and I think every busy parent or businessman or woman could benefit from a visit to her clinic.

Literally head, shoulders, knees and toes and Laura can help - not forgetting the elbows, back, hips and the rest!

Give Laura a call and make an appointment - you won't be disappointed. Here's to a happy, healthy 2015. It's not just about diets and gyms you know - my best move was my visit to Shifnal Chiropractic Clinic. I may see you there!


Eep – am I blushing yet?! Well, I’m glad to have helped, anyway.  If you would like to have your say on a Guest Blog spot, please do feel free to send something through to me at, or just ask for more information about writing for this spot.
