Become free from back pain
Pat came to me for help last year. He went from constant low back pain to a huge reduction in pain and a full return to physical activity. My favourite quote here is: “I’m no longer fearful of pain”.
He is now very much in charge of his body and health. Yes, pain may come and go, but with the right knowledge, skills and attitude you can deal with it effectively. And get back to living your life.
I no longer suffer from any back pain
“I first started having back problems in my late teens. It eventually led to surgery which brought great relief for many years. However, my back flared up again a few years ago and went from bad to worse. I was in a lot of ongoing chronic pain when I first saw Claire from the Twickenham Osteopathy Clinic. I was rather restricted in what I could and couldn’t do e.g. I couldn’t sit on the floor and have a picnic with my family, I couldn’t go to gym, I could never pick up anything heavy, etc. and I was going to physiotherapy on a weekly basis.
I admit that I was initially quite sceptical of the treatment Claire recommended but figured I had nothing to lose as I did not want surgery again. It took a few months to get better, but my whole life has since changed for the better. I no longer suffer from any back pain, I am back in the gym and I am no longer restricted in any way by my back. I am very grateful for all that Claire has done for me and would highly recommend you see her if you suffer from ongoing chronic pain.”

I have had NO more lower back pain
"This review is so overdue but I couldn’t not share what a positive impact seeing Claire at her studio has had. I only needed to visit her twice and it seemed she waved her magic wand. I had been having recurring lower back pain since having my babies (8 years ago!) and it seemed as though the more exercise I did the worse it would get. As I am a Personal Trainer and a fitness instructor
The flare ups of pain have virtually gone
"I've had back pain from an accident for many years but I didn't realise it was my nervous system that was triggering it. Claire taught me simple techniques to address the root causes and now the flare ups of pain have virtually gone because I am taking greater care of my 'inner me'. Two weeks ago I climbed the Old Man of Coniston in the Lake District both there and back - not even a twinge from my knee or my back."
Helped free me of my back pain within three weeks
"Claire was recommended to me following some four months of very bad back pain which made me dependent on medication. It simply wouldn't go away.
I had seen physios and specialists and had had an MRI but there was no proper diagnosis, no solution to it. It was severely affecting my quality of life, and affecting my family. I was forced to take heavy medication. I simply could not understand what was going on.
Claire's approach was less conventional than I was used to, essentially suggesting that it was more stress and the fear/memory of pain than real pain. Working with that understanding and new tools which Claire suggested helped free me of my back pain within three weeks of first seeing her. A few weeks after being pain free, I was dancing again.
There is a great deal of material out there explaining why Claire's approach works. I would definitely recommend Claire and only wish I had met her months earlier."
Eased the pain considerably and made me mobile again
"Claire was very quick to identify the cause of my lower back pain. Claire's treatment over the next 2-3 months, eased the pain considerably and made me mobile again. So back at allotment and have taken up Pilates, as recommended. I feel confident in Claire's treatment and would definitely recommend her."
Not only did she relieve my pain but she helped me understand why
"I’d been suffering with a burning pain on my right hip traveling down to the side of my leg. I went to see my GP and I wasn’t happy with their response.
I came across Twickenham Osteopathy Clinic on Google. Claire was very helpful and was different in the fact that not only did she relieve my pain she also made me understand why and what brings these pains on.
With Claire’s help I now look and deal with stress differently which has helped me immensely and I’m pain free. The mind plays an important part in our lives and if not handled correctly, your poor body takes the strain of it all.
I would recommend anyone suffering with an injury or pain to see Claire, listen to what she has to say. GP’s are very quick to prescribe medication and get you out of the door but I received good honest advice, solutions and treatment from Claire which really work."
