Elli Garnett endured five years of misdiagnosis following a horse riding accident, until she tried Isis Chiropractors in Kiln Farm. Here she tells her story.
I thought I was destined to live in pain for the rest of my life – until I found Isis Chiropractic Centre in Milton Keynes.
Let me explain… Five years ago I had a horse riding accident where I landed on my feet but totally jolted my whole body at about 20mph.
Since then I have suffered with a problem which I thought stemmed from my hip joint. I have seen countless physiotherapists, GPs, osteopaths and even orthopaedic surgeons. I have had MRI scans, steroid injections and acupuncture, all to my hip joint.
Everyone could see that I had an issue with the rotation of the joint and that the pain and discomfort I was experiencing was becoming increasingly noticeable in day to day life – even more so since the birth of my son – but nothing was helping.
I was almost ready to give up until I decided to give Isis Chiropractic a try in Kiln Farm. My life has changed ever since.
When I attended Isis Chiropractic for the first time, Jatinder Benepal (who is working on me in the picture above) invited me for my initial assessment.
I explained what had been going on over the previous years and where I – and every other professional – thought the injury stemmed from.
After going through my signs and symptoms, she said, ‘lay down, I think I know what it is’. Obviously, this was music to my ears as not one person since my accident had ever said those words to me.
Jatinder had me lay on the bench and investigated a few areas around my back and into my groin to see if her diagnosis was accurate – and it was.
My sacroiliac joint had been injured and had been made worse by pregnancy and childbirth. Since seeing Jatinder regularly for the last 2 months, I have had a significant improvement in pain and general movement in my hip.
We are slowly leaving more time in between each appointment. However, something I am extremely impressed with is that when I held a door open with my leg and tweaked my back, I emailed Jatinder that evening and she made sure she came into clinic the very next day to see me in order to relieve the pain I was in.
The whole team at Isis work together to ensure the health and wellbeing of their patients, which is thoroughly appreciated by all of us.
I am continuing to meet with Jatinder regularly and am going to start working on building my muscles in order to stabilise my joint further.
I cannot recommend Jatinder and the team at Isis Chiropractic highly enough.
