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!
A friend recommended Michael as the best osteopath ever, and I have to agree he is. He engages you and explains clearly what the problems are and what you can do to help yourself in addition to his treatments. Brilliant!
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.
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!!
