About Our Team

At About Backs & Bones we work as a team enabling you to benefit from the most effective treatment for you. There are no ego’s here: if another therapist is better equipped to treat your specific problem or we would like a second opinion, we refer, with your consent. This means a speedier recovery and a holistic approach from specialists all qualified in their areas of expertise.

About Sports

You want to look after your health, lose some weight or simply enjoy the benefits of being active or being part of a team sport. Whether you are running the marathon or taking a regular walk, training for a triathalon or playing the occasional round of golf, body- building or doing the gym once a week: everyone can become injured and to continue successfully, everyone benefits from help. We treat anyone from world-class cricket players, professional golfers, renowned footballers and international show jumpers to those who just like to dance or climb or relish an occasional spin on their bike. Whatever your sport, we can help, especially if frustratingly, you sustain injuries and then find it hard to train. You may be unsure if you are doing the right thing by continuing to exercise, feel perhaps you are getting too old for your sport or need specialist advice on strategies to keep you fit.

About Driving

Most of us cope well with the strain of sitting in one position in a vibrating machine- but if you drive long distances, especially under stress or in a vehicle not suitable for your body size or shape, you may soon find yourself with neck, shoulder, upper or lower back pain –even extending into your arms or legs.

About Horseriding

We all bemoan the fact that we should be riding better, should be achieving better dressage marks, should be able to avoid falling off in the ménage! So what could we do to improve matters?
