Coccyx pain related to spinal position

Fern, UK -

Posted 2019-03-24

I came to Sayer Clinic two weeks ago having experienced chronic shoulder/neck pain, pelvic tension, urinary problems, sexual pain and eventually daily coccyx pain (see Doctors and specialists in the UK, London). Dr Durtnall took x rays and told me all of my symptoms were related to my spinal position. I was so relieved to finally find somebody who understood what was happening and why. Up to this point I had spent almost 2 years in Urology, Gynaecology and physiotherapy with no answers to what was causing my issues. It was only by my own research that I came across Dr Durtnall's work and finally felt like I could have an answer.

I'd like to say that he genuinely is the most engaging and considerate practitioner I have seen, he takes the time to make sure you understand your body and feel comfortable with the treatment. He appreciates the intimate nature of pelvic pain treatment in particular, and is very discreet and always 100% on consent. After just one treatment and daily changes to my posture, I have already felt a 50% improvement in my coccyx pain and pelvic tension.

I'm very excited to continue treatment at the clinic and would highly recommend it to anybody experiencing similar issues who may feel lost and disheartened by misdiagnosis or lack of understanding. Apologies for rambling on for a few paragraphs, but I cannot express enough how grateful I am to be receiving this treatment after such a long period of discomfort.

Note from Jon Miles:

I emailed more than a year after this story was posted, to ask for an update, as the long-term outcome of treatment is of great interest. In this case I did not get a reply.
