So I've got hypermobility syndrome, which unfortunately means I'm prone to partial dislocations. When I'm back home, if I partially dislocate a rib, I'd see a chiropractor.
I tried finding a chiropractor at uni in first year...but I don't know the person I saw made me feel very uncomfortable (hard to pinpoint exactly what) and he didn't seem as good as the chiropractors at home (I sometimes partially dislocate my jaw too and he didn't know where to begin ). I was looking at other chiropractors and it's literally double the price of my london one. I'm a student I don't know if I can afford to pay 40 quid on a semi regular basis so my question is... do I have to?
I've never been to the GP about partial dislocations, I guess I presumed they wouldn't do anything/ referral would take a few months and when your rib is partially dislocated it kind of feels like you can't breathe properly. I don't know how I'd cope waiting that long as it's hard to sleep. Does anyone know how the NHS deal with partial dislocations?
...for the 2nd time this year
