What our patients say

“I went to see David in December ’15 after being involved in a car accident. I had already been suffering with pain in my arm from a trapped nerve but after the accident it became much worse. I was taking strong painkillers, was unable to sleep and driving was becoming extremely painful.

David showed me some exercises I could do and then suggested a course of acupuncture. I was very sceptical at first but was willing to try anything to ease the pain in my arm as it was becoming almost unbearable.

The acupuncture itself didn’t hurt at all and after a few weeks of weekly ½ hour sessions I began to feel some improvement. As the treatment continued, the pain in my arm lessoned until I became completely pain free. I’ve gone from taking painkillers throughout the day and night to needing no pain relief at all. I don’t know how it works, just that it has and I’m so grateful that I’m no longer in constant pain.

David’s knowledge and expertise has worked wonders for me and I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending him to anyone needing physiotherapy treatment.”
