Jacqueline was diagnosed with Scoliosis aged just 18, a painful and movement-limiting spinal condition caused by sideways curvature in her spine. This was made even worse for her when a subsequent injury led to surgery and severe nerve damage. Having come to terms with the fact that a cure is not available, Jacqueline tried numerous physiotherapists (both NHS and private) in an attempt to find some relief from her suffering, but no one was able to help.
Eventually her pursuit of freedom paid off when she discovered the Pea Green Physio.
Jacqueline says, “Steph is one in a million, I have complete confidence in her and quite frankly now I won’t let anyone else touch my spine”. Before getting the expert care and attention that Jacqueline receives from her regular visits to the Pea Green Barn she was be limited to two or three hours sleep per night and a medical verdict stating that her condition would continue to deteriorate. That is not the news a mum of two wants to hear.
The care, friendship and world class physiotherapy that Jacqueline now receives means that the condition is stabilised, her mobility is increased, the pain is significantly reduced and she can enjoy around five hours of undisturbed sleep each night. Jacqueline says, “Steph even insists that my husband has her number… just in case there is an emergency”.
This is not the perfect scenario by any means (unfortunately that does not yet exist) but for Jacqueline and her family discovering Pea Green has quite simply been life-changing.
