“Now I can play netball without having sore legs.”

Pain in children is not normal and sometimes the term “growing pains” can be a handwave diagnosis because there is no other explanation.  Please talk to your chiropractor or health care professional first.

Hi my name is Natalia Donald I am 10 years old ,I first went to see Neil after my Mum got feed up with doctors telling her that the pain I get in my legs and hips where growing pains.

I first started getting these pains when I was only little, I think about three or four, I have been in hospital not being able to put my feet on the floor because it hurt .The doctors took some x-rays of my hips, and said they couldn’t find anything wrong , they told my Mum it was growing pains .After lots of years of being told this my mum thought she would try something else and was lucky to have a friend who told us about Neil.

I went and saw him and he told me about how he could make my sore legs better by turning on some switches that have been turned of for a long time. After going to see Neil for only a few weeks I haven’t had sore legs.

Now I can play netball without having sore legs after and I run around more now and I don’t get so tried.

Another thing that I didn’t know he could fix was my sore tummies I used to get, they have gone to. I really like to go see Neil because he makes me feel lots better.
