Thank you so much for that! I'm too foggy right now to read it all but already there's so much that fits. I have scoliosis and my worst pain is in my trapezia muscles, worse on one side, when injected my doctor said it was hard and twitching instead of soft as it should be. So that's just for starters. I'll read through the rest tomorrow when I can concentrate.

Very interesting, not least because I have major problems with my pelvis, one of which is a Sacro Illiac Joint problem, I also have structural Scoliosis(as opposed to the functional type mentioned in the article) and noticed (in photos) that from a child of about 8/9 have always tilted my head to one side, and still do now, no doctors have ever noticed or mentioned this though... :shock:

I have scoliosis (don't know type which, but inherited it from my mother who also had scoliosis). I have always tilted my head to one side, and on my bad sides I have an almost exaggerated limp, as if I am dragging my right leg. I also noticed the other day that my walking stick I hold in my right hand is shorter than the one in my left. I have to wear handbags on my left shoulder as any strap (my bra strap included pre ahh bra) just fall off my right shoulder. Also I have noticed that the muscles in my neck are tighter on my right (rock solid actually, I've always blamed the whiplash injury in '98 for that), and that I tend to sleep more on my right than my left (even when I had a broken right clavicle. I can't sleep on my left at all. So everything almost that he said resinated in me one way or another.

Thanks for posting this... I've had a read and it's very interesting. A few years ago I had a very nasty horseriding accident and damaged my pelvis, I was told that although i hadn't broken any bones, my pelvis had twisted to one side and rotated downwards, they said that my sacroiliac joint had been stretched out so far that it wasn't possible for it to go back itself, they offered to pin my pelvis back into the position it should have been in, but i decided not to as they explained the problems it would cause if i wanted to have children. My pelvis is visibly crooked. I'm wondering now if I should have had the pins!
In september last year i decided to see an osteopath, not knowing about this theory. My FB was fairly stable at that point, it was a problem to me but i did manage to get things done. After 2 visits to the osteopath, who i should say, worked mainly on my pelvis, I was much much worse, and this has remained the same so i'm now a lot worse. If this research is correct that does make sense, aggravating an already crooked pelvis, unless you know exactly what you're doing in terms of this research, would logically make the FB worse.

Hopefully this Dr will keep going with this research and maybe get somewhere with it. I'll certainly be keeping my fingers crossed and be watching out for updates.

Thanks again for the post! :-)

Very interesting read. I was told before i broke my hip that my pelvis was out of alignment. Being tall as a child my mother made me practise walking with a book on my head everyday for about 15mins without fail. I never had much confidence but because my posture was good people assumed i was confident.
I had a bad fall in my garden about 15yrs ago thought id broken my coccix? After a scan i was told i had the beginnings of osteo in my right hip but no mention of hip being out of place at that time.
I noticed after that i gradually got back problems and my posture was aweful i walked like a duck. It was the physio that told me my hip was out 7 yrs ago.
I was lucky to see a different doctor today and he said he thinks that somewhere down the line my central nervous system is sending the right signals to my brain but when they come back from the brain they get all mixed up. He was so helpful.

Wow. I think this article describes me!! I haven't done the checks, such as the Gideon's Bible test, but I definitely have the 't shirt sign' and I do roll my right foot out and I'm always spraining my ankles because of it! I have much more muscle development on one side of my back than the other - even I can see that in the mirror!

And the chiro helps me a lot. She tells me that mine 'is not the straightest back in the world' and when she massages my back I can feel her rolling the muscles from one side toward the other, evening things up.

Quite a revelation!

Sounds really interesting and plausible dosent it.

Until you do a bit of background on this 'Dr'. His revelation of 1987 was a book called 'how to heal AIDS naturally', Hmmmmm?????

He was the original 'Dr Feelgood' touring with the Rolling Stones in the 70s' passing himself off as 'Jaggers personal physician' when as history would have it, he was actually the tour 'dealer'.

Oh, and before taking up medicine as his full time profession, he was a porn star.

Thinking we need to take this report with a pinch (or did I mean a pillar) of salt.
