    Back Pain Free for the cost of a trip to Cornwall.

    Little does he know it but the cure for Charles and Camilla's back pain problems can be found in his very own Duchy. I suffered from terrible lower back pain for 11 years following a trapped nerve caused by a slipped disc. I tried all treatments available on the NHS and most complementary therapies all to no avail until one year I visited M?n-an-Tol (see Google for pictures) a small formation of standing stones near the Madron-Morvah road in Cornwall (grid reference SW426349). As I approached the stones at dusk, a thought popped into my head that i should lie through the hole with the middle of my back resting on the stone. Perfect for looking at the stars, after about half an hour I heard a loud crack, just like the sound you hear when being manipulated at the Chiropractor's. From that moment till now I have been completely free of lower back pain. Pass this information on to anyone you know who is suffering from back pain.

    This is one of the most confusing posts I have ever read. It makes very little sense. What I think I can gather is that you feel that laying on stones cured your back problems. There is absolutely no medical or scientific basis to your opinion. I would certainly NOT pass on this information to anyone seeking relief from chronic back pain.
