Sue Westwood Success Story/Testimonial

September 6, 2023

Sue came to see me a couple of months ago and had been suffering from Mortons Neuroma for some time. Sue had tried various shoes insoles and direct care and treatment from a podaritist who originally diagnosed the neuroma.

Sue has had issues with her feet over the last 20 years with surgery on one to help with her smaller toes and alignment and her big toe fused on her other. This added to the movement issues with walking gait and standing so had to modify to compensate for differences.

Sue’s biggest issue was that her foot felt like it was on fire at night with the nerve pain. She felt that been busy in the day acted as a distraction to the discomfort and she had coped with issues for some time. The treatment was focused over 8 weeks and intense. Initially the treatment reduces the frequency of pain and the intensity of the pain. This did not happen according to plan for Sue as she felt better in the day and the pain and discomfort had reduced so aided in walking and standing, but, the evenings and sleep were the same.

The big change happened a Wimbledon as Sue is an avid tennis supporter and had tickets for a day to see live tennis on the different courts. Sue also loves Cliff Richard so was at Wimbledon early to see if she could catch a glimpse. She was disappointed as he had arrived by a special entrance and the crowds had missed him. This meant walking significantly more interspersed with sitting in seats after several stair climbs. This meant that when resting Sue’s feet usually troubled her. Today was different as the pain and sensation was less and more infrequent. Cool all Sue had to do was watch tennis all day. Over the next few sessions we had significant periods of low or no burning pain or discomfort despite Sue still been very active. The last two sessions we had 5 to 6 days pain free and increasing which was great. Sue was lovely to treat and work with and I am so pleased we could get a successful result.
