Back pain and dyspraxia

Postby skyrocket » Mon Jan 07, 2013 11:37 am

Hi does anyone else suffer from back pain with their dyspraxia condition. I have chronic upper back pain and headaches. It causes a great deal of insomnia as it effects other regions of my body - and neural network. My chiropractor tells me it has been caused from poor posture and stiff spinal muscles (Sub-luxes), & general muscle memory - something I have had since a child. Sometimes I can control the pain through heat therapy and stretching. However I think my body moans when it is doing something it is not used to or if I jolt it or I get hyper tense too quickly. Some situations get me down very quickly - coping strategies are great to get me through but more often than not the physical problems seem to linger long after I'm calm again. Anyone with similar problems?

I do suffer from significant discomfort in the muscles and nerves around my neck, shoulder, back, leg and now ankle. I'm more often than not in constant cramp and regular spasm which is increasingly mated to stress tension and anxiety.

I suspect that the Dyspraxia certainly does not help matters, probably compounds them, although it does seem to have given me an extremely high pain threshold as apparently my (private) massage therapist and osteopath/chiropractor are quite "brutal" yet struggle to trigger my pain receptors.

The Doctors at my general practice have been nothing short of useless. I have zero confidence in them hence going to private physio.
