Frances asked the Guru if there is a correlation between a stroke and back problems

Sep 16th, 2014

Dear Clinic

I had a stroke one year ago. I had to move house and didn’t get time to attend to back problems.  I got some osteopath treatment but the pain is ongoing despite pain killers. I have been told my vertebrae have become fused and there is nothing I can do.

I have heard that many people can make some person effort for improvement. I am afraid to instigate a plan in case it makes it worse. I am 69yrs old.

Can you advise me – re exercise, treatment and nutrition for building osteoporosis. Also some really valuable reading re elder physically situation.

I look forward to your response.

The Guru Responded:

Hi Frances


What a shame – there is often very little relationship between having a stroke, fused vertebrae and back pain. It sounds all very coincidental.


You’ll have to take a leap of faith by seeing somebody who can help and not hinder – dig around and ask for advice or look for testimonials on websites, they are often on the money and should show the good and not so good…


You need a fair chunk of relatively specific advice re osteoporosis, nutrition and exercise considering you’ve had a stroke and may have some residual weakness which is not related to your back etc.


But please don’t despair – I’m sure there is lots that can be done for you.


If you need any recommendations I may be able to help
