What our patients say about us
I injured my back whilst skiing and had pain and discomfort in my back. Andy was recommended to me. He treated me for around a month and worked mostly on my back, where I was experiencing the majority of my pain. During his thorough examinations he found other areas of my legs, neck and shoulders where there was tensions which he also treated.
Andy was extremely caring during his treatment and made feel completely at ease as he talked me through his treatments. He has taught me things about my muscles which will now helps with a potential weakness. He helped me endlessly and the pain and discomfort that I felt was improved massively, I am still in touch with Andy and I would highly recommend him.
