Specialists In Back Care, Sports Injury & Musculoskeletal Pain Treatments
I took my 14 year old son to Richard for a sports massage as he had an ongoing problem with his shoulder. The real benefit was that he was able to make osteopathic adjustments that he thought necessary. His shoulder is much improved and he derived so much benefit from the massage that I made an appointment for myself.
I went to see Richard for back pain that came on after a long day at work and in the van. I’ve had this problem off and on for a while now and after 5 treatments with Richard it had cleared up and has not returned in the last 8 months. Great Osteopath!
Richard’s treatments worked fantastically for the neck and shoulder pain that I would suffer from after being at my desk all day. He used massage and acupuncture and gave me great advice on how I should set my desk up and sit properly at work.
I have had a lower back problem for a couple of years and never had the time to have it looked at properly. I finally made the time and having been to see one osteopath who made no difference at all found Richard's website. After a couple of sessions I woke up one morning and realised that the first thought that came to my head wasn't the discomfort in my back but the fact I couldn't feel any pain.
I still have work to do to be completely pain free under strain but Richard gives you plenty of strengthening and conditioning exercises in between sessions to help build that back up. Richard is friendly and pleasant and pays lots of attention to what you have been doing in between sessions and what causes discomfort to adjust your next session effectively.
I would highly recommend him. As an extra bonus I have finally persuaded my partner who has a far worse back problem that I have to go and see him.
During my training for a 1/2 marathon my legs always felt super tight. Richard was able to help me towards the end of my training and fit in around my working hours. Highly recommended to anyone else in need of sports injury treatments or tight muscle pain.
My 14 year old son had reoccurring knee pain from a football injury 6 months ago which would not go away and caused much discomfort when playing sport.
After three sessions at Back To Active he is gently easing himself back to football and floorball.
Great care was taken to diagnose the problem, explain what had happened and provide strengthening exercises and advise on movement.
I threw my back out and Richard was brilliant, seeing me at a moments notice and quickly determining the reason behind my back injury and why it had happened.
He was able to help with the extreme pain and I felt better after my first visit and after several visits, I was soon back to full health, in fact, my back was even better than before and my mobility greatly improved.
I cannot recommend him highly enough.
Had a niggling muscle strain for years, saw one of Richards monthly promotions and was in to see him the next day.
Very warm and welcoming environment with no waiting around.
After 3 sessions in total, my pain was completely gone. Highly recommended if you are suffering from an old or new sports injuries.
I saw Richard at Back to Active for treatment for back pain and general stiffness.
I've seen a major improvement in my overall mobility and reduction in pain.
He has given me strengthening exercises to do at home between visits.
I would recommend Richard if you're looking for an osteopath with an all-round approach to helping muscle and joint issues.
Would thoroughly recommend Richard.
He really helped my 12 year old daughter to recover from a broken leg by providing her with exercises to strengthen her muscles and help her get back to fitness and swim training as soon as possible.
I visited Richard at his clinic in Elstead, no waiting no fuss, really excellent service and friendly.
Highly recommended for sports massage treatment if you are living in Surrey.
Richard, at Back To Active, helped me with my muscular tightness following a run. He manipulated and then used acupuncture to further break down the scarring. Very impressed and would happily recommend
Really nice guy and very accommodating service. I went to see Richard for a recurrent tennis elbow problem. After 3 sessions my symptoms had significantly reduced and he gave me some great coping strategies and exercise that will hopefully prevent it returning. 5*
My Son had damaged his Shoulder at Swimming - Richard worked out the problem - first visit !
After a some exercises and acupuncture he has fully recovered, great service.
