“Being sick from the age of 9, battling with pain, dislocations and subluxations on the daily. I had pain in my wrists, fingers, hips, shoulders, feet, knees – you name it. I wore braces and splinters, used crutches or a wheelchair depending on my energy levels. I tried everything the Norwegian healthcare system had to offer me over the years, without any success. Having to ‘drop out’ of school and stop taking part in social activities. I started feeling very hopeless regarding my future.Then my very stubborn mom, who had been searching high and low for years after a way to get me healthier told me about a man in Newcastle called ‘The Fibro Guy’. And I thought, why not, let’s do it, I can’t lose anything by trying this as well. And let me tell you, it has been the best decision I’ve made in years. The day I arrived in Newcastle, we did some sightseeing and my hips subluxated 9 times, my dad carried my bag because it was too heavy for my sliding shoulders. I was so exhausted after a few hours I fell asleep at 8’o clock in the evening. I didn’t know if i could make it to the car to get to the appointment with Adam. Luckily I did.
After just a few sessions, with doing my foundations at home I flipped Jeff 3 times. My energy levels rose through the ceiling, I stopped subluxating, my pains are now basically gone and my mindset has been completely changed. I’ve gained a social life, I’ve lived by myself in a foreign country, travelled, gone on hikes, even gone clubbing. It’ s been hard and at times exhausting work, but it has definitely been more than worth the pain. No pain no pain. My parents are now getting back a completely new Hedda, with so much energy, joy and hope for her future.”
