Hi
I'm back from my physio appointment.
Krysten said thgat although I hadnt been officially diagnosed with kypho scoliosis the last time I saw him it was obvious to him. He also said spinal stenosis tends to go with it.
I'm booked in for a 6 week session of acupuncture...starting in Jan.
I've also got some exercises to do....just range of movement ones because as he says I'm stiff all over.
Thats it until Jan.....nearly there :lol:

Love
Hileena

    Hi Hileena,

    I hope the accupuncture works for you. I have heard some good things about it. I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

    I know we usually say not to pay too much heed to non-specialists who make a diagnosis but in this case I think the situation's different. From what you have told us before it would seem that he knows his stuff, and knows you. You have a treatment plan and we like plans - good luck with the exercises and I hope they help to 'free' things a little. DD

    Hi Helen and DD
    Helen I've had 2 sessions before and it worked. Not completely but 5 days out of the 7 I was fairly pain free so I was quite happy with that.
    The only thing is ,with it being NHS they did 2 lots....12 weeks with a gap in between. Then decided that it wasnt working well enough to keep doing it. :(

    DD Yes Kristen is good, knows me well....
    You know me....I wont just accept anything they say if I dont think its right :lol::lol::lol:
    Fight to get appointments, fight when they try to do something that is contraindicated to the meds i take for epilepsy etc etc :wink: but I've always been happy with what he has done and said.
    He's going to do another 6 week session after this or a 3 week one with me going twice a week.
    Next thing is see what the pain clinic says :wink:

    Love

    Hi
    Thanks Sticky and Barbara
    When I phoned to make a date for the physiothgerapy they took my name then said....Oh you have to go to a certain physiotherapist...not the first appointment that comes.....so they must have checked notes from the middle of last year or so whiich is when I last saw him
    As you say....It would make a great start to the new year

    Love
    Hileena
