“Apex Headache Clinic cleared my 5-year battle with dizziness”
For 61-year-old professional dog walker, Shane McCann, dizziness was ruining his life. He had been battling with dizziness every day for five years and had given up on finding a cure. Today, he shares how finding Apex Headache Clinic cleared his dizziness, meaning that he can now enjoy life again.
Shane, tell us when your dizziness began.
I can’t remember what triggered my dizziness but it started about five years ago. I went through all the stages of finding a cure for it. I saw GPs, Consultants, had MRI scans and had every test going, but I was told they could not find the cause of it, which was extremely frustrating. The doctors told me that it was just something that I was going to have to live with, which was extremely upsetting.
How did the dizziness affect your life?
It was debilitating. It was extremely frustrating trying to play sport, but it was the simplest things that I found the hardest. Everyday things that I used to take for granted became almost impossible. When I woke up in the morning, I had to stay in bed for ages and gradually get myself up because if I just got out of bed straight away, like most people do, I would have fallen over. I just wanted the dizziness to stop and was so desperate for a cure.
What led you to Apex Headache Clinic?
My wife read an article in a magazine about the clinic and encouraged me to book an appointment. To be honest I couldn’t see how physio could help my dizziness but after trying everything else, I decided to give it a go and I’m so glad I did.
During my consultation and assessment with Michelle, she diagnosed my dizziness as stemming from my neck and following just one treatment session, I honestly felt relief straight away. After that first appointment, I didn’t have any dizziness for about 5 days. It was the longest I had ever felt relief in five years and I just couldn’t believe it. After each session, I would go longer and longer without any dizziness, until it disappeared completely.
How has Apex Headache Clinic changed your life?
I am thrilled to say that my life has returned to normal again. I no longer have to think about how my dizziness will impact on everyday activities. I can now sleep soundly without fear of waking up with that intense, dizzy feeling. It’s amazing to no longer have worries about those everyday tasks.
What advice would you offer someone suffering from dizziness?
I would definitely suggest going to Apex Headache Clinic. In fact, I have already recommended the clinic to friends and family. Don’t give up on finding a cure for your dizziness, even when you’re told there is none. The treatment at Apex Headache Clinic worked for me and I have no doubt that it will work for others.
