James Steele had a mid-life crisis soon after his 45th birthday. Arguably, his was more serious than most. After years of chronic back pain, doctors told him his condition could not be treated by further medical intervention. He would just have to learn to live with it, cope by using pain relief and get around by wheelchair if personal mobility was absolutely essential.
James reached rock bottom that day. He had finally run out of solutions. A small army of doctors, osteopaths and chiropractors had kept him going, patching him up for a day, a week, maybe a few months at best. What he did not realise was that treatments like cortisone injections were actually making him worse. Like footballers and sportspeople of a generation ago, he was masking the pain rather than dealing with its underlying cause.
He tried to live life as normally as possible, in between periods when he could not get out of his house or drive his car. A rare visit to his local golf club, and his life changed suddenly and very much for the better. The club professional mentioned, as an aside almost, that there was someone visiting the area who sorted backs. It was a spur of the moment thing. Jim had never been a believer in alternative therapies. After five sessions with this visiting therapist he could put his socks on. Not the world’s greatest achievement, but to him it was like climbing Mount Everest.
Given the relief that this therapy afforded, Jim decided on a change of career (from quantity surveyor to therapist). His book entitled ‘Getting Your Own Back’ tells his story, copies of which are freely available by eBook for anyone who places an order on the Moss-Grove website.
Jim runs a successful clinic in Troon, Ayrshire: www.bnth.org from where the Moss-Grove skin-care products have been developed. He keeps his back pain under control by daily use of both his Joint Ease and Muscle Ease lotions, a little bit of safe (Psoas) exercise and he drinks a reasonable amount of water. He also uses the skills that he has developed as a result of his travels around the world, where he found the gifted people who taught him the secrets that are being shunned by the NHS here in the UK.
Jim has tried on many occasions to convince the Government that a clinical trial would be a worthwhile exercise that could examine the therapy that he has developed. Sadly, not one politician agrees. It seems that we are left with visits to GP’s and hospitals where the issue of analgesics (pain-killers) that simply mask the pain, while doing nothing to address the problem are the norm. Surgical intervention having a success-rate of just 30% often leaves the patient more debilitated.
