Chelmsford Osteopathic Practice Testimonials
"My name is Angela and I am a showjumper. I travel all over Europe with my horses to participate at showjumping events on different levels. Everyday I spend couple of hours riding horses and preparing them for the competitions. This is a lot of fun and very enjoyable, but unfortunately there are a few health issues involved, mainly back problems. Riding is a great workout but it strains the back muscles very much, which then results in pain in my case.
When I first came to Rob my back was not in very good condition I guess. I even experienced headaches caused by my back problems. They disappeared just after the first treatment and never came back. At the beginning, I went to see him every 3 to 4 weeks to just help to gain a better back health. Now I am so much better that I just have to see him occasionally when I have a specific problem. Rob also showed me a few stretching and strengthening exercises which I can easily do on my own everyday and now I am feeling so much better, the treatment just helps me to enjoy a mainly pain free life and also to prevent damage."
"My training is very intense and I saw Rob for problems with my hip/back. He helps keep me supple for those hurdles!! Thanks Rob!!"
