Nicola Darby – Age 35, Professional Dance teacher and Cheerleading Coach
As a professional dancer, and cheerleading coach, my body and health has to be in top condition. Unfortunately, due to a bacterial infection in my blood a few years ago I became very ill. I was hospitalised and lost the use of my legs for a while. I was devastated. During my long and painful recovery I went back home where my parents looked after me, but I was still in a great deal of pain with my back. I struggled to teach and was devastated as this was my career and also my passion.
I was then introduced to Dr Jacobs at the Liverpool Back Clinic, a Doctor who my father had seen on a previous visit due to a back complaint he had himself. I went along with my mum to the clinic, and had my first appointment. Dr Jacobs was wonderful, she made me feel so comfortable and at ease in the clinic. She explained everything in detail that she was going to do in the session. The session lasted for one hour and I can honestly say at the end I definitely felt some release of pain. Since that appointment I have been back to the clinic for four more sessions and I feel fantastic! I am back teaching cheerleading and dance and haven’t felt better. I still go to the Back Clinic to see Dr Jacobs every couple of months just to keep on top of things.
All I can say is thank you, and I would definitely recommend Dr Jacobs and the Liverpool Back Clinic to all my family and friends.
Allan Wales – Age 40, Senior Computer Artist
After 20 years of working in front of a computer screen suffering all the usual posture problems associated with being sat at a desk, my spine was in very poor condition. This lead to a slipped disc which the NHS and even Bupa where unable to rectify via the usual bed rest and drugs.
I had heard of the treatments which the Liverpool Back Clinic provided and decided to book an appointment. Dr. Jacobs was very professional and friendly, she evaluated my condition and I had my first treatment. I also received advice on how to sit, sleep and move around and I started to see clear results after 24 hours.
With the posture advice and the combined treatments I am seeing a vast improvement in my condition and am well on the road to a full recovery.
I still visit the clinic every month for a check up and remedial treatment. I can therefore highly recommend the Dr. Jacobs and the Liverpool Back Clinic, without her expertise and guidance I would still be in great pain with limited mobility. Most importantly I learnt about how to look after my back and avoid any further painful episodes.
At the age of 16 I started playing for Arrington football club. I was a potential professional footballer until an accident effected my neck and concluded my football career. I have been attending the Liverpool Back Clinic for the past 24 months. I have benefitted from the treatment provided and return on a regular basis. I have been to many other practitioners but I feel more confident and comfortable with this particular result from the clinic, which I highly recommend to any other sportsman suffering from any back and joint problems.
