I was recommended to Lancaster’s by a friend, at the time I was really struggling with injuries as I'm a runner and had to pull out the London marathon. This was a really thing for me as I was raising money for a hospice that looked after my Nan before she passed away. I had been to see numerous sports therapist; Dr’s and had a few unsuccessful operations. I was losing faith that I was ever going to recover and run again, until I met john. He has been an absolute god send I wish I had seen him from the start; it would have saved me a lot of pain, tears & worry. Thanks to john I did run the marathon the following year and achieved a big goal in my life. After fixing my Tendonitis I then slipped & tore a disc in my back, when the doctors said the best thing I could do is start with was seeing a chiropractor. Luckily through my private health care they covered all the treatment for me, there was nowhere else I was going to go. I honestly can’t thank john enough for what he’s done for me. Anyone who does sport will tell you being injured is a really tough time. He really has been an absolute star & I recommend him to everyone I can. Thanks again John.

I have recently been having a lot of back through lifting wood burning stoves and have been treated by a physio for this a couple of times, however my pain was getting worse and was stopping me sleeping at night, so I decided to come and see John for an initial treatment.Your diagnosis of my back made lots of sense and your treatment stopped the back pain I was having within a couple of days... then as you had warned my it came back, I was awake again night, the following day you booked me in at short notice and treated my back yet again, along with giving me some great advice.Now 6 weeks on I still need the odd treatment every few weeks to stop the pain coming back, but overall I feel cured of my back pain and no longer have to lie awake at night in pain.I would absolutely recommend John to anyone with a back problem..
