Adam treated me throughout the middle phase of my frozen shoulder, which meant that among other serious restrictions I was completely unable to play the guitar. As he explained, his treatment couldn't instantly cure the problem, but it did mean that, once the recovery phase began, it was only about 3 months before I was back to full, unrestricted, pain-free movement - far quicker than the 12 months I had been led to expect.
When I first started seeing Adam, my neck and shoulders were very stiff and painful all the time. I see Adam monthly and the treatment and exercises he gives me help keep me mobile and pain-free despite working at a computer for hours each day. I really look forward to my treatments and wouldn't give them up for anything.
I had an operation when I was 16 on a slipped femoral epiphysis in my hip and though it was a successful procedure I found that I was still getting pain in my leg, particularly after exercise. Having treatment from Adam and being set a range of detailed exercises, has enabled me to maintain a high level of physical activity and greatly reduced the discomfort that I feel in my hip and knee. I would recommend him to anyone.
As an active tennis playing 67 year old I highly recommend Adam as not only a superb therapist but also as a source of regular advice on how to look after my joints and muscles. I have a lot of arthritis in my spine, knees and thumb but thanks to my visits to Adam every few months I continue to work, play tennis, and take my turn at looking after small grandchildren and an elderly mother. He's a gem!
After key hole surgery for a cartilage problem in my knee, I was unable to run without a lot of discomfort. After a few treatments with Adam and a programme of stretches, I noticed an improvement in my flexibility and I am now back playing football twice a week. I have been very impressed with the treatment and would highly recommend Adam to anyone who has similar issues.
As a professional cellist, I have suffered from chronic stiffness in my neck. After a whiplash accident, it had reached the stage where I had very limited ability to turn my head. Since receiving treatment from Adam, I have been completely pain-free and have found his self-help approach through giving simple but effective exercises very beneficial. If I now need help with any injuries, Adam is always my first port of call.
Adam has wrought minor miracles, after I came to him with pains along the upper outside of my arms - pains that restricted my arm movements. Through a careful examination and assessment, he patiently tracked the source of the problem to my neck and shoulders, using gentle treatment with very helpful exercise advice.
I have had scoliosis for 30 years and have had various treatments during this time to help ease chronic pain and maintain suppleness. However none of the treatments have been focused in such detail on my individual situation. Adam has a calming presence which puts you at ease immediately, he is very knowledgeable and totally professional. He has worked quite deeply without causing any discomfort at all to loosen the tightness caused by the curvature of my spine.
My sessions with Adam have not only relieved the pain in my hip joint and improve my walking, they have also given me a detailed understanding of what the problem is, and what had caused it. For me, his combination of powerful body work, an intuitive understanding of where I am experiencing pain and tension and his clear explanation of what is going on in my body is exceptional in every way. Thank you Adam!
Having had osteopathy treatment on my neck and shoulders for many months, with little permanent relief, Adam was recommended to me by a friend.
Even during the first session, I felt that Adam was getting to the core of the problem and after only 4 appointments, I am considerably improved.
Adam has a very holistic approach to treatment which is impressive.
I would certainly recommend Adam to anyone with such issues.
I sprained my ankle badly playing tennis and was told by the A & E dept it would be 8 weeks before I could play again. With the treatment and exercise programme that Adam gave me, I was playing tennis within 5 weeks. He also picked up on underlying problems with my feet and referred me to a podiatrist, as a result of which I now use orthotics, which help me feel much more stable.
I cam to Adam after falling backwards off a chair and damaging vertebrae in my back. Not only was I in considerable pain but I had lost confidence in using my back. Adam’s treatments have helped me to regain confidence and I am so grateful for all his knowledge, his real listening quality and obvious interest in caring for his patients. He is friendly, professional and going to see him is a pleasure.
