I went to The Osteopaths at the end of my tether with pain in my shoulder and neck which had left me with a constant headache and pins and needles in my arm.
The day before I visited The Osteopaths I had been to my GP who had sent me for an X-ray. When it showed that there was nothing broken/damaged she prescribed me an addictive painkiller.
Knowing their had to be another option than taking painkillers, I called The Osteopaths.
From the outset, Teresa understood and was hands on, manipulating, massaging and treating the area with acupuncture. I had a few treatments in quick succession and the headaches were gone. A few months on and I no longer get pins and needles, the pain in my neck and shoulder has subsided, my posture is better, I sleep soundly and in general I move easier!
I couldn't recommend The Osteopaths highly enough!
I can only sing the praises of the technique which worked wonders with my back, so much so that I have had no problems since our last treatment sessions!!!!
I cannot speak highly enough of the work you done on me. If it wasn’t for your treatment, im sure I would not have made that cup final and would still be experiencing the same pain that 3 chiropractors failed to fix.
Eighteen months ago I had the misfortune of acquiring a trapped nerve in my lower back which caused me a great deal of pain not to mention the loss of mobility. I immediately arranged an appointment with a very good physiotherapist.
I had numerous appointments with the Physio but regrettably without improvement. After a short spell without any professional treatment I was recommended to an Osteopath, Teresa Harvey RGN BSc Hons (Ost). I made an immediate appointment with Teresa who, from ‘day one’ made a significant improvement in my mobility, plus a 90% reduction in the pain threshold.
It gives me pleasure to recommend Teresa to all who suffer from ‘joint pain’ as I believe totally that she will be able to ease your discomfiture. Teresa works every minute of all appointments so you can be assured that your problem will be professionally addressed.
When I first approached Teresa requesting an appointment, I arranged with her that I would 'sign on' for three appointments and that we would together discuss and agree whether to stop further attention or continue appointments until the problem was totally solved. After two appointments I decided that I would be continuing with weekly treatments until I was free of pain and greater mobility.
A trapped nerve is difficult to clear completely plus the pain that it causes. After numerous treatments I am pleased to say that I now have no pain whatsoever and that my mobility has infinitely improved.
I can unreservedly recommend Teresa Harvey's treatments to all who have joint and pain problems. Teresa has certainly helped my pain and mobility problems.
I consulted Teresa Harvey at The Osteopaths after a couple of hours of research. I wanted to be sure I had found a very well respected and trusted practitioner in my local area. Teresa Harvey came highly recommended by her patients and peers. I tentatively made an appointment (being nervous about the whole process and unsure about the efficacy of osteopathy). The level of pain and discomfort I was feeling was enough for me to depart from the more traditional route of physiotherapy and the ensuing NHS waiting list. I was not at all disappointment in my choice. Within only an hour, I knew I had made the correct choice in Teresa. Teresa was funny, down to earth and such a very generous person.
I only required 3 sessions in all, during which I was made to feel incredibly safe and comforted. Teresa was not only incredibly understanding and professional, but an expert in her field. Seldom do you encounter such unassuming and genuinely caring professionals. Teresa made me feel very relaxed, whilst skilfully manipulating my neck and back, instantly easing my symptoms. The use of acupuncture also helped the pain and inflammation in my neck and back. I began to experience a range of movement that I didn’t think was possible. By the third session, I felt renewed mobility and increased energy levels. To complement the sessions, Teresa gave excellent advice around posture, behaviour, gait and workplace ergonomics. Not only that, she also furnished me with advice on stretching and supplementary materials which helped a great deal.
To anyone considering an Osteopath, please do not look further than Teresa Harvey.
Me and my daughter have been to several specialists for back and neck pain,some one recommended teresa to us,she is not only the most effective regarding pain relief she also put me at ease an listens to what u have to say which i find is not always the case.
I would highly recommend the osteopaths to anyone, many thanks
At 47 years old I believed that my days of exercising were over, I had an injury to my knee which was affecting my hip and foot also. I had had the injury that long I had forgotten what had caused it. I also had a deep rooted fear that if I tried to exercise I would make the injury worse.
Teresa was recommended to me by a work colleague and on attending the Osteopaths, she never made any promises but agreed to work with me. I am glad to say that 6 months on, I am back to full fitness, attending exercise classes and personal training. Thanks for giving me my confidence back.
Teresa pointed me in the right direction to finally get a diagnosis from my GP. I had undiagnosed fibromyalgia for 26 years, sometimes walked with a stick and lived on painkillers. On my first visit, many years ago, Teresa set me on the path to recovery by explaining that although I had pain, my joints were ok. I pushed the GP for more tests.
Once I had a name for my condition I was off and running- literally- and started to treat myself. I now visit intermittently for acupuncture and manipulation if my back seizes up and I have recommended THE OSTEOPATHS to many people who also received amazing treatment too. Cannot speak too highly of Teresa. Keep up the good work.
