I was very impressed from the outset by the detailed assessment undertaken by Felix at my first appointment. At the time I had severe back pain and hip pain so much so that I couldn’t turn over in bed and had difficulty travelling in a car for any distance. The pain made an enormous impact on my quality of sleep, waking several times in the night, so I would wake feeling exhausted. Felix quickly identified the reasons for my pain and got to work on correcting the issues. I saw him on a weekly basis initially and then fortnightly. He reviewed my progress at the beginning of every session and was able to provide helpful advice about exercises I could carry out safely. His treatment made an enormous difference and considerably reduced the pain.
When Felix broke his arm last summer, my treatment was continued by Suzanne. Another marvellous practitioner! Suzanne helped me understand how to manage pain which had developed in my upper back. Again her initial assessment and those following were very thorough. With my permission, Suzanne made a referral to my doctor because she was concerned about the time it was taking to ease my discomfort. As a result I was referred to the MSK clinic at the Friarage which resulted in an MRI. I’m still awaiting the results of my scan.
I have to say that I cannot recommend the practitioners at Bedale Osteopaths highly enough. You are always greeted with a smile by the excellent admin team and you know that the practitioners will listen to you very carefully, make a thorough assessment and do their utmost to ease any pain through excellent treatment programmes.
