Despite what your NHS GP or specialist will tell you, there ARE plenty of very effective & accessible treatments for PCS! The problem with our health system is it does not recognize PCS still even though its been around since the middle of the 19th century as Erichsen’s disease, Railroad spine & Shellshock & therefore will not pay for such treatments. Our NHS is also heavily reliant on the big pharmaceutical corporations for valuable profit, so helping people recover holistically would effectively put a massive hole in their business & they’re never going to allow that whilst things remain as they are.
Getting treated WILL cost you quite a bit of money as none of the therapies needed to aide & speed recovery are available on the NHS who can currently only prescribe pharmaceutical pain killers, anti-deppressants, mood stabilisers & anti-inflammatory drugs none of which will improve your PCS long term, in fact all the current expert opinion & evidence is that will only worsen PCS!
Natural remedies are available to treat pretty much any PCS symptoms, and unlike their pharmaceutical equivalents do not generally bring on heavy & unpleasant side effects & are less likely to cause stomach problems or sleep disturbances etc.
Don’t get me wrong I’m not totally against pharmaceuticals/Meds altogether but in my own & many other peoples experience they never bring about a long term solution, being instead a temporary crutch when things are too much for the PCS suffering individual.
So what is available? What are the choices? Here’s a few links which will explain in more detail, including contacts & therapists in your area….
