I’m Marie, McTimoney Chiropractor in Islington, based in Angel N1.
In 2012, ten years after I first sought help from my GP for debilitating pain during my periods, I was diagnosed with endometriosis. As I get older, although I do still get pain occasionally, it’s rarely debilitating. When I think about how the pain used to be, how it made me feel, how it invaded my life, and the fear, anxiety, frustration, and despair I felt, I wish I knew then what I know about pain now.
I wish I had understood that my body didn’t hate me. Instead, my pain system was trying to protect me but had become over-sensitive. Had I known that pain is caused by many factors unrelated to tissue damage, I may have sought more appropriate treatments and adopted more effective strategies to help myself. Well, I have this knowledge now, and I want to use it to inspire you to take an active role in your treatment and recovery, to find comfort and renewed freedom of movement, to love your body, and feel empowered to move forward in life with confidence and ease.
