I have been attending the clinic (see Gowan Robinson) for almost 19 years now. I hurt my back when working in the construction industry but just did my best to live with it. When our oldest daughter was 9 months old, I bent over to pick her up and suddenly was in agonising pain. A year later, I left a hospital appointment in tears, having been told they could do surgery, but there was a 50% chance it would make it much worse.
I chose the clinic out of the yellow pages, because the practitioners were qualified to work within the NHS.
After 2 weeks of treatment (6 sessions) I walked out of the clinic UPRIGHT for the first time in over a year. Since then I visit the clinic regularly when I have the first signs of a problem. Some years I attend 4 or 5 times, others I will only go twice a year.
The service is fantastic, the waiting periods are tiny, when ringing for an appointment I rarely have to wait 2 days to see Gowan. The other practitioners are also exceptional - I see them when he is on holiday. Yes - it costs - £37, but I have a small medical insurance that returns half the cost. But even at full price it would have been worth ten times that to be able to pursue my career now as a teacher, when I am on my feet for much of the day.
