see a decent sports physio or possibly osteopath, ideally someone who a knowledgeable friend/trusted acquaintance recommends, they should be able to tell you what is the likely cause and help you medium/longer term etc unlike your previous experience from the sound of it. this does not necessarily mean they get you coming back for lots of sessions! 1 decent session may suffice combined with you following their guidance outside of the clinic ie rehab, depending on the complexity/severity etc.
I could recommend a great 1 in central London but I think it’s prohibited on this forum.
I’m just guessing but it could be that a vertebra is/vertebrae are out of alignment and have been for a while hence why the adjustment gave temporary relief but the muscles/your body has gotten used to/compensated for the incorrect alignment and it eventually comes back, and/or it could be related to exercise etc, this is where doing postural work religiously should help very shortly after the appointment and probably for a few weeks at least, depending.[/quote]
Charlietr, thank you for your reply, I really appreciate it!!! It’s driving me insane, the physio I went to see wasn’t bothered and basically wanted me in and out as quickly as possible. I’m based in the North West of England, but thanks for the offer of a recommendation.
Once again thanks for your help!
