I suffered with gradual knee pain for nearly 15 years. Tablets, creams and NHS Physio never helped and at 63 I was finally inclined to see an Osteopath. Consultation showed a tightening of the quad muscles as well as the hamstrings causing strain on the knees. There is arthritis in my knees but the treatment I am receiving has relieved so much of the pain that I am no longer considering knee replacements. Claire has been a fantastic practitioner and her knowledge and expertise has given me a new lease of life!

Fantastic service and treatment from Claire. After only 3 sessions, my long term shoulder trouble was virtually pain free. Could not recommend her highly enough.
