I visited Michael following a recommendation from a friend. My previous osteopath had ‘maintained’ the problems with my lower back. Michael’s approach is not only to relieve discomfort, but to work on weak areas and improve muscle tone and flexibility. We have made steady progress and I am now able to undertake fairly strenuous walks e.g. in the Lake District and still be mobile and pain-free at the end of them. He is patient and always explains why we are doing particular exercises and ensures that I am doing them correctly. Michael’s approach is holistic. We have discussed other areas of my health and he has suggested complementary supplements to improve these.
