I had lower back pain for almost 2 years after an injury from deadlifting with bad technique. I had been treated by another osteopath with no improvement. Then on recommendation from a friend I saw Michael. Previously I had experienced bad pain during the night that would sometimes keep me awake but after my first appointment I had complete relief for about a month. Just two more appointments and my back pain was gone completely. Would highly recommend Michael!
I initially saw Michael by default because my then osteopath was full and I was in back crisis. I have been seeing Michael ever since. Michael has a recovery approach, he sets me homework so I can improve my problem in between appointments. I have had ongoing problems with my neck but after my pregnancy I lost all the strength and stability in my inner core, which led to lower back problems and my pelvis was sat at a funny angle. He has helped me to understand my problems and together we have solved them. I have full movement in my pelvis and a much stronger inner core. I no longer attend in crisis but as part of a plan. Thankyou Michael
I started out with an odd noise/movement my lower back was making about a year ago, and a friend recommended Michael. With his unique and wonderful way of working, he released my back and re-activated my core through a series of exercises that increasingly challenged my ability upwards. All it took was a few moments every day (or every other day) and the difference
was amazing. I wholeheartedly recommended Michael to a whole bunch of friends and family, and will continue to do so!
**Excellent!!!** I have seen Michael for both Osteopathy/Perrin Technique treatment on many occasions. He is a kind, professional and dedicated practitioner whose extensive training and knowledge is clear to see, and can help people with a variety of health issues. His Naturopathic approach means he does not just treat the symptoms but identifies the root cause of a problem. Many of my back/hip structural issues had been present since childhood. I am continuing to progress with these with Michael through Osteopathy and specific exercises. My back is positively unrecognisable! Amazing service, very grateful – thank you!!
Michael deserves far more than 5 stars! His knowledge and enthusiasm for his profession are exceptional and he always sorts me out when my ageing body starts to protest about the rigours of belly dancing and mad long-distance walking. Highly recommended!
Michael is there when ever needed to support and encourage; giving both professional advice and treatment as well as self help routines for home. I can’t recommend him enough!
I started seeing Michael due to my fatigue and back problems. I see him regularly and keep in contact via emails between this. I have found Michael to have a wide knowledge base, and feel he has helped me more than other professionals have. I feel that since my first visit, Michael has helped me improve at lot.
I have had regular Osteopathy appointments with Michael, from Osteopathy at Home, for a number of years following my first appointment after my lower back seized up. After my first appointment Michael implemented a gradual increase in time between appointments and I now see him every three months for what I call my “back maintenance.” It is hard to put into words the complete service Michael offers as he certainly doesn’t stop at only carrying out my “back maintenance”. He is very forthcoming with suggesting suitable strengthening and stability exercises and will offer advice and interesting discussion about the body and how it works. His knowledge in all of these areas is extremely competent and he clearly has a great desire to improve his own personal knowledge through external training. Michaels manner during appointments is as good as it gets. I have never felt uncomfortable during an appointment and can imagine that he adapts this manner accordingly for each of his clients. If I was asked to recommend an Osteopath, Michael would come very highly recommended.
I see Michael regularly as a musician who needs to keep in working order and he is extremely competent, knowledgeable, experienced and professional. He has also given me a number of exercises to build up my strength which is very useful. He is always courteous. I highly recommend him.
Brilliant, Professional & very caring. Always the most thorough examination followed by excellent treatment. I have no hesitation in giving out contact details to anyone I meet who complains about their back.
