I’d been struggling with pelvic and lower back pain for nearly a year; the pain was particularly bad when sitting. I’d seen more than half a dozen consultants, including specialists in chronic pain, and been through a number of examinations and procedures. No definite cause for the pain had been identified and no real progress made in reducing it. Then my pain consultant refereed me to the White Hart Clinic where I met Helen. Helen’s perseverance and multi-faceted approach, over the course of a number of months, first reduced and then more or less cured me of pain. The effect on my quality of life has been significant. For the first time in a long time I can enjoy sitting down. As someone who works in an office and watches cricket and drives an old sports car as hobbies you can imagine the benefits. Given the area of the body in question it can inevitably be awkward to discuss and potentially embarrassing to treat. However Helen’s approach put me at ease right from the start. And yes, I am a bloke.
