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!
I’ve employed the services of Osteopaths on and off for over 30 years. Michael Parr is certainly one of the best: he is very professional, and extremely effective. Michael strikes the perfect balance between massage, physical manipulation, and restorative exercises. I no longer see him as just someone to turn to when I have acute pain (although I do turn to him in those situations!), but as a trusted adviser and coach, helping me move on to the next physical target that I want to achieve. Since visiting him I can see clear and distinct improvement in my overall health, directly attributable to his methods, input, advice and continued guidance.
I have been treated by Michael for 6 years. His use of the Perrin Technique has transformed my life – to the extent that I have gone from having a very limited quality of life to now being able to enjoy a good social life and have even been able to have a baby daughter. This is something I know would never have been possible with the energy levels I had before my treatment started. I can’t say how grateful I am for the gift of being able to have and look after my daughter. I now get one treatment every 3 months and for the past 4 years this has kept me at a consistently good level of health. I recommend Michael and this treatment to everyone.
I only started seeing Michael for less than a year but I must say he is one of the best ones I have consulted, for my neck and shoulder pain. His recommended strengthening exercises have improved my pain management, and he was always attentive to details such as my body responses after a couple of weeks of doing these exercises.
Michael is a very conscientious, thorough and dedicated practitioner. He has helped me a lot on my healing journey, willing to go the extra mile to keep me on track and provide reassurance in those low moments. I would highly recommend him as a skilled osteopath and Perrin Technique practitioner.
**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 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 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.
