  • I went to see Vanessa Robinson at Cathedral Osteopaths in March 2019. I had strained my lower back doing something simple on holiday.

    I imagined things would soon settle down when I got back home, but unfortunately they didn't and a month later I was still struggling with everyday life - playing with grandchildren, working on the house, running etc. Vanessa completed a full review of my overall health. I also had a long-standing issue with my shoulder. I had previously had some physio which hadn't really made any difference, so it was something I had just learned to live with.

    The first thing which impressed me was that this was not just trying some manipulation to see how it went, but there was a clear plan as to how I was going to get better. Secondly, because of her belief that all things body related are inter-linked she put me in touch with people who could help with another problem I had been struggling with for many years.

    Now, at the end of 2019 I no longer suffer with back or shoulder pain. I am confident that I can enjoy games with my grandchildren, work on the house and garden without worry. I completed and enjoyed a 10 mile run in October, and am planning a half marathon in the spring. I intend to continue ongoing monitoring with Vanessa to ensure this restoration is maintained. So if you are having the same fears call Cathedral Osteopaths to get back your youth and vigour.

  • For over 30 years, I have had recurring neck pain, coupled with some sciatica. This had stopped me from free movement, and limited my home life and leisure activities. Having visited multiple specialists over the years, no one had managed to get to the route of the problem.

    Following a pre-assessment with Vanessa, she recommended a 3 month plan with a fresh approach. This encompassed working on many areas of the body, ensuring that it was aligned in the correct way. Coupled with the weekly sessions, Vanessa recommended specific muscle group exercises to do at home to strengthen my body and improve my posture. She even came to view my working environment to ensure my posture was correct, as I sat most of the day at work.

    Now my sessions have ended, I have no pain in my neck or back, have started some regular exercise and am returning to pastimes I never thought I would be able to do again. I feel great.

    I would thoroughly recommend Cathedral Osteopaths for their dedication, frankness and ability to give you back quality, pain free living.

  • I injured my back quite badly earlier this year and was in considerable pain, which was affecting a nerve in my leg.
     
    The pain was excruciating. I though my running training was out the window for months. The treatment I received from Vanessa was gentle and compassionate and aided a complete recovery in only a matter of weeks. Great North Run here I come.

  • When I met Vanessa in January 2019 I was struggling with intense low back pain and leg pain it was unbearable. It made me feel down.
     
    I was unable to walk or sit without pain and it was keeping me awake at night, my concerns were is it ever going to get better? and will it affect my job which involves a lot of driving?
     
    Less than 2 months later not only has the pain gone but I am feeling stronger in my back than I have done for 7 years.  I feel great and I can now do a lot more activities and driving is not an issue. 
     
    Vanessa has also shown me how to maintain my back strength and flexibility. Having treatment with Vanessa has been amazing- I would highly recommend her.

  • I suffered with a chronic low back condition since I prolapsed a disc in 2010 and struggled to participate in my chosen sport of triathlon, in particular I had to stop running completely.

    Since receiving osteopathic treatment from Vanessa over the past 4 months I am pleased to say I am now free of pain and back running twice a week.

    I strongly recommend Vanessa to anyone committed to resolving their low back pain.

    Sinan Osman

  • Highly professional, sensitive approach to treatment. I walked in with my back feeling twisted and out of line along with muscular pain in my back and leg.

    After treatment with Vanessa my back now feels in line and I no longer have any pain. As a nurse finding someone who can treat quickly and get me back on my feet as soon as possible is essential – Highly recommend, fantastic osteopath.
