I was recently introduced to TRT therapy with Dr Talia Seale at Fourways Chiro and I am writing this review to share my incredible experience. At first, I had my reservations and was certainly not holding my breath for that miracle I have been wanting for so long. The treatment consultation was thorough and nothing like I have experienced before, furthermore, the way I felt after the treatment was a far cry from the battle-bruised body I normally leave with when visiting a chiro or physio.
I started noticing results after the first two sessions. Yup, believe it! I have gone from being a chronic 8/10 on the pain scale to having days where I am a 2/10. Areas of my body which had restricted movement have been restored to almost full use, and not just for a few hours but days. For the first time in years, I am able to sleep and wake up feeling like my body actually rested, repaired and restored itself. I don’t feel absolutely exhausted after having a shower, just after I woke up in the morning, like I used to. Recently, I went shopping with my mom for an entire day! This was a luxury my body did not afford me, with 3 hours being my max usually, before I needed to lie down and rest.
There is much research done on FM and what causes it but most professionals agree that there is a link between FM and your mental/emotional wellbeing. Having PTSD is no joke and it causes havoc in many ways, no matter how strong-willed you are. With TRT treatments not only have I been feeling better physically but mentally I have been more positive too. These last few days I have not been too worried/anxious and although certain stressors trigger me, and this in turn spikes my pain, my recovery from these stressors is faster than it used to be. I have been more alert, which is great because Fibro-fog is a real thing, I am more energetic, positive and feel really happy (on the inside). I find myself not having to fake being well for the first time in a very LONG time.
This is only the beginning of my healing journey and I am so excited to see how my body responds to further treatment. I am so grateful for some change and for relief I thought would never come - Ashley Snow
