I am in tears not just because of the pain, but because it's a pain that has been recurring for 8 YEARS, and the "normal" doctors (GP, NHS, etc) have been telling me it's nothing, that I'm too young for any kind of serious injury (19 yrs when it started), that I should go and train with the army...
And yet, each time I try to get any kind of physical exercise (because I am overweight), I get pain somewhere in the back, especially around neck and upper chest area. Yes, running as well. Though this time it came after I tried doing arm weight exercises (very light 3 pound dumbbells).
So, sorry for the time and "whiny" tone, but I just can't stand the fact that this just keeps coming and I have no way of getting in shape without injuring myself - for 8 years now.
I want to try a good physio place. Now, I have been to a few physios/osteopaths but they seemed a bit dodgy and commercial, and the credential seemed dubious.
As in - they all looked too young and too positive to be people I would entrust my health with.
I would appreciate advice about serious professionals, experts, with credentials and valid experience who have delivered results and are known for that.
(P.S.: Ideally, I'd appreciate if it is a place where they check the whole body, and tell me what I can do to improve overall my fitness-related problems)
(P.P.S.: Oh, and the NHS has already stuffed me with pain killers... I never understood how pharmaceuticals can cure "mechanical" problems. I prefer knowing what pain I have, what triggers it, etc. than hide it / fund the pharmaceutical industry )
