Ouch! Less than a week before Lisa Hempstock was due to go skiing, she put her back out.
[dropcap]S[/dropcap]heffield Clinic of Complementary Medicine made sure she enjoyed her holiday….
Backs have a nasty habit of causing us debilitating pain at just the wrong time. Lisa Hempstock who owns Sister, the designer clothing store on Ecclesall Road, woke up one morning and struggled to get out of bed because her back was causing so much pain.
She was due to go skiing in France within a week.
Says Lisa: “I was really worried I would miss my holiday. I’ve had occasional twinges and problems with my back because I used to do a lot of gym training in my twenties.”
One of Lisa’s friends recommended she ring the Sheffield Clinic of Complimentary Medicine, which is not far from Sister. Chiropractor Katie Eyre was able to offer help straight away.
Says Lisa: “Katie was brilliant, I was in so much pain that she didn’t manipulate my back that day, but massaged it, which gave a lot of relief. She then gave me advice on what to do next, down to how I padded my car seta before I sat in it, and to apply ice to my back for 20 minutes every hour. At the next appointment my back was manipulated, and I was able to go skiing as planned. I’ve returned for more treatments, and my back is feeling much better.”
