Here you'll find a few testimonials from my past and present patients. I love to hear the difference I've been able to make in the lives of people that have suffered for years and been led to believe there was nothing they could do.

After a compression injury at work I was living with constant back pain for over 15 years, then an accident 5 years ago resulted in a dislocated/fractured shoulder which continued to cause me additional pain with most arm movements.
Having tried all of the usual routes, chiropractors, osteopaths and acupuncture none of which made any real difference to the constant pain. I had more or less given up and accepted that I would have to live with this pain for the rest of my life.
Then one day whilst having a conversation with a work colleague. Mike was highly recommended to me via my colleagues own therapist whom Michael had previously treated for whip lash.
I was a bit reluctant to call him up at first as felt I had already exhausted all of the routes available to relieve the pain I was in, however I did eventually call as the pain had become progressively worse and after speaking to Mike, who was so confident that he would be able to help, offered me the first session free if I did not feel any significant difference after treatment. I decided I had nothing to lose.
I am a 81 old retired gentleman who was suffering from back pain. I contacted Michael who was kind enough to see me immediately and after the very first session I began to feel much better. Michael explained to me what was my problem and also advised me on how to take care of my body and avoidance of back problems
After just two visits I felt a lot better and Michael suggested that I did not need to see him anymore as I did not have anymore back pain. I am very grateful to Michael for his treatment and would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone with similar problems.
5 years ago, pain started to develop in my right leg. It came on slowly but got progressively worse over a period of 6 or 7 weeks. I chose to ignore it in the expectation it would just go away. However, after 7 weeks I finally went to the doctor who, after sending me for an MRI, diagnosed a prolapsed disc in my lower lumber region. By the time I got the results it had cleared up so I just went on with my life.
I had been suffering from excruciating pain in my lower back and down my left leg for a number of months with the pain getting worse. I found a recommendation for Michael from a neighbour on the next door App.
Michael was the epitome of professionalism from our first interaction on the phone and throughout our sessions. Michael went out of his way to see me the next day and was incredibly compassionate yet no nonsense. After just three sessions my pain was gone and I am delighted to say I have been back pain free for over 3 months now..
I was hit in the rib whilst playing football. The pain gradually got worse over time and was also affecting my lower back, to the point of not being able to stand up properly. The hospital diagnosed me with a cracked rib and I also visited a chiropractor who made no difference to the pain I was in.
I was recommended Michael by a few friends through football. Michael came to see me at short notice as he could tell how much pain I was in.
I had a car accident 20 years ago and though at the time I didn't think this caused an issue for my back, I just escaped with a few scratches. Coupled with a fall the following year I was off work for a year with sciatica pain down my left leg and I was basically immobile. I had tried all sorts of therapies including numerous physiotherapists, osteopaths, specialists over the years. Recently I had pain in my neck and down my right arm which was so bad I couldn’t go to work for a few months.
My name is Izzy and I'm an 18 year old student. Last year I suffered a whiplash injury and my spine moved out of place. I just thought it would get better on its own so soldiered on. It got worse and worse and was very painful, this started to effect my concentration and I was struggling to stand and sleep.
Mick was recommended and I arranged an appointment, I am so happy I did.. he is amazing! He straight away knew what the problem was and started to help me.. the great thing is he comes to your home and basically won't leave until he has made you more comfortable .
Testimonials on Michael's page are normally from the patient but I feel the need to share our story and how Michael has changed my son's life and my family's for the better.
My 19 year old son had been suffering with what we thought was sciatica nerve for over a year. His pain and suffering progressed and he complained of back ache, not being able to walk for short periods, let alone long periods. He couldn't sit in a chair comfortably, play football with his friends, visit the cinema or ride a bike and over time withdrew into himself and isolated himself from his family and friends. We as his parents thought he was being a 'typical teenager' and whilst we believed he was suffering from sciatica pain we also thought he was probably 'putting it on a bit' as teenagers can be over dramatic. Fortunately neither I nor his Dad has suffered back pain so we read up on the sciatica condition spoke to family and friends who all seemed to say the same thing; physiotherapy and exercise will reduce the pain of sciatica nerve.
If you are are suffering with neck/ back pain you MUST see Michael! His work, skills, gift, is truly amazing.
I have been suffering with severe Chronic neck, back and shoulder pain for over 6 years. I have a herniated disc around C5/C6 level, pressing on my nerves and spinal cord and have loss of cervical lordosis (no curve in my cervical spine). My pain symptoms range from sharp burning, tingling, severe stabbing, throbbing, constant dull ache, all on and around my neck, down my left shoulder and down my left arm into my wrist and fingers and also down my thoracic spine.

Mike was recommended to me by a friend of mine.
I'm 31 years old & a relatively active person, I enjoy snowboarding, martial arts and working out to keep fit. I have struggled through life with lower back pain for as far as I can remember. I would have monthly visits to the osteopath to get re-jiggled, and all would be well again, for a while at least! Looking back on it, they only ever worked on the problem area which was the lower back region that was causing me pain. (more…)
