" Since consulting Stephen my back and shoulder have improved more than I dared to hope. He always gives a considered, thorough and informed consultation. I have no hesitation in recommending him for anything for which osteopathy might have the answer. I think he has magic fingers! " - Mrs.G.Ireland
" Having been a sufferer of a potentially debilitating lower back problem I visited chiropractors and physios without any lasting improvement to my mobility. After the first session with Steve he diagnosed the problem pretty quickly, and took a different approach to treating my spine and hamstrings, my back is now on the mend. " - Mr.A.Brauders
" I have been delighted with Stephen's treatments which I have been the recipient of over the last few months. He is punctual, polite, professional, patient, reliable, understanding, conscientious, thorough and very considerate in his approach. He is a true "Professional". To pay him the ultimate compliment which I consider I could attribute to him, he is "A Class Act". I have no reservations at all in recommending him to any person considering treatments which he could provide, you will not be disappointed. " - Mr.T.Barton
" Over the years, I have been treated by a variety of doctors, without any lasting improvement. Stephen impressed me from my first appointment. He was able to diagnose my back problem and explain it to me clearly. I have so much confidence in his skill and knowledge that I am travelling from abroad to enable me to benefit from a series of appointments with him. " - Mrs.J.Dobson
" I was in a lot of pain when I went to see Stephen. I was very impressed with his skill and professionalism and I would recommend him to anyone needing help with back pain. " - Mrs.K.Chicot
I was extremely pleased with my treatment and still find it hard to believe I am pain free after only 2 sessions as I am normally skeptical about using this type of therapy as I have received physiotherapy in the past for back pain which unfortunately didn’t help.
My friend (who is a Doctor) recommended that I see an osteopath and it was due to her advice that I made an appointment and to be honest this was also my last resort but I was in so much pain that I would have tried anything.
My heart sank when I telephoned and was told the only appointment left for that week was with a man but if I preferred a woman, I could get in for the following week. I decided to take the appointment with Michael because I was desperate for some pain relief and if this was going to work, I didn’t want to delay the treatment.
I needn’t have worried, I was told to bring some leggings and was given a gown so I was fully covered and ready to receive treatment. I explained my symptoms to Michael and he was able to work on back and advise me of what was causing my extreme discomfort. I can’t say that I left feeling better and actually even felt worse but the following day I started to feel a little better but still was in a lot of pain. I attended my second session the following week and 4 days after this I woke up pain free for the first time in 5 months. This has made an immense difference to my quality of life as I can now resume my day-to- day activities for the first time in what seems like a very long time. My only regret is not going sooner and wish my own Doctor had recommended this treatment as this would have resulted in a much quicker recovery time for me, less appointments with the Doctor and no prescription drugs.
I would highly recommend Michael and would not hesitate to go back to him again should I ever have any further issues with back pain.
