  1. Hi Cheryl, I came across your podcast on Pain Reframed and wanted to say I found it very enlightening and a sense of hope.
    There were so many similarities you described it was like I was listening to my own history.
    Similar age (43) plenty of child hood injuries, broken bones etc, but back trouble started about twenty years ago and on and off pain.
    Bilateral pars defect, spondylitis, slight scoliosis etc. years of neck getting jammed etc.
    Recent years a ruptured L4/L5 disk.
    Then after battling dysbiosis and extreme stomach distension the past two years my back has stiffened and sciatic pain in glute, leg and foot. Painful sitting or standing still. I’m still active with two you children, Pilates, surfing, cycling etc. moving is ok it’s the being stationary that hurts.
    I’d love to hear more about something you mentioned in the podcast, spatial awareness, movement or rotation? I see physio and chiro but wondering if I need to speak to another practioner?
    Anyhow it’s good to hear that someone with similar description of symptoms has made good progress. Kind regards
