So sorry to hear this Jan You need to see our Supervet, Noel Fitzpatrick! Have a google He sorts out dog spines with amazing spacers between the vertebrae. They then get sent to the physiotherapist for rehabilitation and to hydro therapy on a water treadmill.

Viv, we go to Back in Motion. They have various clinics in and around Norwich. I think the nearest one to you would be in Thetford? The clinics are all run by Chartered Physiotherapists. You have to go for an assessment first and then they direct you to an appropriate class for your particular condition. We went, initially, to the rehabilitation class where you are given your own, individual, written plan of exercises aimed at your condition. A qualified physio oversees the class and watches over how you do the exercises. I cannot recommend that highly enough. Although Chris and I both went for back problems we had totally different exercises. They also work on other issues as they identify them or as they occur. I remember turning up with a stiff neck to one lesson and I got a free physio session on it.
They do encourage you to practice at home.

Most physiotherapists will either run a clinic or refer you to one that they recommend. As you probably know it is only physiotherapists that run "Clinical" Pilates. I understand it is quite different to the recreational kind, though any would be better than none. We have recommended all our friends, some of them quite disabled by their conditions and they have been turned into fit and flexible people again!

If it wasn’t for your post email there is no easy way for me to Post anything.
Thanks for asking, I hope I am now on the road to recovery, not as much pain, walking is becoming a little easier, I am resting, sleeping, a LOT, I think I must be catching up on lost sleep over the past year 🙂. I have decided to stop the chiropractor visits, not sure if I have reported the result of the MRT that it’s a swelling on the spinel chord that’s been the cause of all the pain so once the swelling has subsided hopefully I will be pain free and normal life will resume. Looking at the pictures of the scan Wolfgang said my back was in a mess to start with, now it’s a disaster 😟. An operation that can be done however is not recommended, I have read a lot about that op some times ago and would not be willing to take the risk involved. I’m afraid we are a couple of old crocks and unfortunately have to accept it and stop thinking we are 10 years younger 😉.
Very strange weather here for July, temp. is at least 10 degrees under norm. Better for me though, some like it hot, but not me.😀

I see I have repeated myself, there is no option for me to edit so very sorry to have said it all again. Hopefully the workers will be back tomorrow and repair whatever has gone for us Auslšnders (foreigners) 🤪.

Glad things are getting a bit easier

Sleep/ rest is the best healer so sleep away Jan

Itís hard to remember that the body ages faster than the mind ( in most cases )

We are no longer Spring Chickens

Hope the forum problems are sorted soon , no problems here for me

Has been cold here too, weíve even lit the wood burner a good few times

I am getting rapidly better I hope, today I was able to walk 3 times as far as I have been for nearly a month. Thatís about 300 meters twice.

I will be going home on Sunday, good motorway day when most lorries are banned (sat & sun in the holiday period)

I had a WhatsApp message from the young man who asked if I would like him to come and fetch me last week asking how I am, after putting him the picture about going home and saying I canít walk far yet he said he can take Motley for walks when he takes his dog, isnít that kind, I think there will be a few failed starts though because Motley wonít go with anyone else that easily, it took 2 months before he would go alone with Heike. Mind you all of our dogs have been the same, a lead didnít always work.

Glad you are, gradually, improving Jan. At least Motley won't get stolen very easily

I sent Wolfgang the chiropractor a WhatsApp this morning to let him know how I was and he phoned me to chat a bit, he reckons I should find a boyfriend 😂 so I am going to write a list of my wants in a man and tell him when he finds this chap to send him to me.
Have a sense of humour.
Like to cook.
Likes to look after a garden.
Be able to mend anything from a Washing machine to a broken chair.
Like animals of all sorts.
Have enough money not to have to worry about spending it.
Like to travel.
Be adjustable to all situations and of course we must be compatible, but I would have to be the 👩*⚖️ judge of that.

I will no doubt think of a few more things before I send him the list, he will see the funny side as he also has a sense of humour.

That lets me off the hook then Jan. I only come close to a couple of requirements. I will now go and fix my trailer.
