It sounded strange, but it was my miracle cure.
The prospect of losing my job that I had worked for 16 years successfully; raised my kids and educated them from the proceeds and the fear that I might not be at a position to cater for their needs or be able to foot my families bills what was led me to accept and try therapeutic treatment for a knee pain which had started some 6 months earlier and was really tormenting me with the painful and agonizing spasm attacks.
I’m Charlie and my work as a truck driver, a career that I’ve come to like and still on it to date. However, 3 years ago I almost gave up on it after I my knee started to experience sharp pain especially at night when I went to rest. Initially I thought it I was suffering from rheumatoid arthritis which was luckily ruled out by the doctor that I sort treatment from. The doctor tried her best to treat me and relieve the pain, but nothing which she did really provided a lasting solution.
Seeing the agony that I was going through especially when I became less productive at work and the management decided to relieve me my duties, something I vehemently detested, she suggested that I try physiotherapy.
It sounded a good idea, but I wasn’t for it for some time and took almost 3 weeks before agreeing into it. By this time, I was not working and the more I spent at home resting, the more the pain became agonizing. It is at this stage that I decided to try it and, God, I don’t know why I had wasted instead of jumping at it on first sight.
The stretching of the knee muscles combined with some exercises and medication which they prescribed for me really worked wonders and 6 weeks later, I was ready to work again, though I took more 4 weeks so that I could be completely healed.
I went back to work for the courier company as their driver again and belief that alternative medicine is the real solution to chronic and agonizing pain attacks in any part of the human body.
