Slipped and fell on a wet rock

I slipped and fell down on a wet rock in the highlands, hit my coccyx very badly! My buttock was so bruised and too painful to sleep and walk properly for a couple of days, my return flight from Inverness to London was too agonising to keep sitting...

I was recommended Dr. Michael Durtnall (see Doctors and specialists in the UK, London) by my friend who had a coccyx injury before, he fixed her coccyx with one session. I made an appointment with him as soon as I flew back to London.

I was really satisfied with the first consultation with him. He examined my back thoroughly included X-rays, his reading of my X-rays was so informative and impressive. I understood what has happened to my coccyx (it was bent in and a bit angled!) and could completely trust him before his hands-on treatment. The first session was quite painful as I still had a bruise on my coccyx and buttock but I woke up so much better the following day.

I visited him four times over the 8 weeks but I felt 90% better by the third visit. I could not believe how much I felt better immediately and could not thank him enough to make my life back to normal so fast!

I know I got recovered quickly as I visited him within a week after the injury but I strongly recommend people who have been suffered from post coccyx injury that Michael is the best practitioner to fix it!

That happened over 18 months ago but the pain has not come back ever since.
