Having treated and seen so many people from a lot of different backgrounds, we get many questions. One of the more consistent questions seems to be ‘How long should I hold a stretch?’ Should it be 5 seconds, 15 or 30? And so on… To answer this we need to ask...

Francis has done a brilliant job on the pain in my right leg and lower back. After years of being dismissed by the NHS and taking a lot of pain killers I finally feel we are getting to the root of the problem and the pain is becoming less noticeable everyday. Thank you 😊 X

Excellent service and sports massage! Had knots in my back for a while, Susan talked me through the medical reasoning throughout, was very chatty and put me at ease! Would recommend to anyone, all knots have gone and feel much better!

Over did it in the gym with dead lifts which caused me lower back pain and difficulty moving round. I went for a sports massage with Gary who fixed it in one session. Excellent work Thanks Gary!

A lovely, knowledgable osteopath who made me feel at ease straight away. Worked on my back for at least 40 mins on the initial consultation. Brilliant service! Already booked in my next 3 appointments! Thank you

Fantastic very professional and felt comfortable throughout my treatments. I have had back problems for a long time and since I have been going to see Francis I have been very happy.
I do recommend stretches by Francis at home plus a treatment every 4-8 weeks depending on my lifestyle and I have not had as many problems with my back anymore. Unlike other places I have been that just do stretches with you and use an ultrasound machine, Francis is very hands on and you feel like you had a good treatment.
I would highly recommend this clinic

First came to see Frances years ago with a back injury.
After that initial visit he is always my first thought when I have a mobility problem.
Professional, courteous yet friendly is how I would describe the service here. I have recommended to others who are now regular clients.
