Just amazing!

For almost five years I've had a problem with my left hip.  It started when we were in Mexico in January 2010. At that time my hip was so painful that I could  barely walk and I thought I had serious arthritis. When I got back home an x-ray showed nothing so I went to a physiotherapist who gave me exercises that helped me get back walking. Since then whenever I get pain I've gone into exercise mode to alleviate the discomfort.  Until yesterday that is when I visited a lovely man who calls himself an osteopath.  I've heard of these practitioners before but I still don't exactly know what it is they do. But what I do know is that this guy by the name of Cameron Moffat has fixed my hip.

This is the second time I've been to see him. The first time we spoke about my shoulder pain and my abdominal discomfort. He does very subtle adjustments (much gentler than any chiropractic I've ever experienced). He did some work on my clavicle which helped the shoulder pain and spoke to me about some diet issues, including the problem with drinking coffee and milk.  Since then I've eliminated coffee from my diet and have much better sleep and much more calmness in my day.

But yesterday, he cured my hip. It turns out that the problem is not the hip at all but the sacrum, which was locked up on the right side.  After some simple movements to release it I find myself today being able to take long strides with my right leg.  I didn't even realize that I had a shortened stride. But it's evident today that something is completely freed up and I can walk again the way I did when I was much younger.  It's just amazing.

If you're interested, his name is Cameron Moffat and he's been a huge help to me.  The really amazing thing is that after yesterday's appointment he said, "I don't think I'll need to see you again, as this should be a permanent fix."  I have my fingers crossed.
