Patient Testimonials

As an Osteopath and Naturopath, I believe we all have the innate ability to heal ourselves. However, below are a few success stories as to how I have directly helped others with the power of osteopathy and my coaching programs. No matter if you are in pain or are looking to improve your health and vitality, you too can experience the benefits Evolve Osteopathy has to offer.
 

I felt incredibly assured that it was not the end of my snowboard career!

I visited Tom after being diagnosed with osteoarthritis in my knee’s by the doctor and being given very little information on what this meant and how to mange it.  As I am just 28 this was very upsetting news, particularly as I need my knee’s to be in top working order because I spend half the year working as a snowboard instructor.  After just one visit with Tom I felt incredibly assured that it was not the end of my snowboard career!

He was extremely knowledgeable and gave me insight into what was causing the pain and noises coming from my knees.  He was able to give advice and exercises that have helped my knee’s feel pain free both on and off the slopes.

I Can Not Thank Tom Smith Enough!

I can not thank Tom Smith enough for all the work he has done for me especially leading up to the London 2012 paralympic games and the Invictus Games. Tom is a great Osteopath and taught me also how to eat and sleep much better!

I compete at a high level in triathlon which was impacting more and more on my body

triathlon-sports-massage-testimonial

I contacted Tom as I wanted to get some preventative/maintenance massage. I compete at a high level in triathlon which was impacting more and more on my body. Tom was initially reluctant to get involved with a client solely for sports massage but decided to take on the challenge.

I found Tom to be extremely knowledgeable and he was able to help with my training with more than just massage. He took a detailed look at my posture and body structure which helped immensely! I would recommend Tom as a professional sport’s therapist!

I was quite nervous beforehand but Tom put me at ease

I booked an appointment with Tom at Evolve Osteopathy as I had a very bad ongoing neck and upper back issue. He was extremely professional and knowledgeable and carried out a thorough check of my general health prior to examining my back and spine.

I’m glad I booked an appointment with Tom as I was quite nervous beforehand but he put me at ease and has genuinely helped me with my back troubles. I wouldn’t hesitate to use him again and would highly recommend to family and friends.

Tom is the only one I would go back to or recommend to others

I’ve known Tom for a few years now and have used several of the services he offers.

I initially started using Tom’s person trainer service in order to shed some excess weight and tone up a bit. The sessions were always great fun, varying between circuits, cardio work and work with weights.

I always finished the session feeling as though I had a great work out and the results were evident really quickly. It really does make a difference to have someone there to encourage you and keep you going.

At the same time Tom had done a nutritional consultation with me, we looked at my diet and at my metabolic type in order to help the weight loss. This was really interesting and not something I had even aware existed before. It was really interesting looking at my eating habits and seeing how much Tom’s recommended changes helped. I not only found that the weight came of quicker, I felt less bloated and had bundles more energy.

The last and most recent appointment with Tom was for some sports massage therapy on an old injury that had been causing me a lot of pain. Tom spent a few minutes checking me over, pinpointed the problem and got straight to work on it. Less than 48 hours later, having spent about 3 weeks prior in pain, I had full flexibility back and no pain at all.

I cannot recommend Tom highly enough. I have seen other people in the same field over the years but Tom is the only one I would go back to or recommend to others.

He is a great guy and makes you feel totally at ease in all situations, his methods work and show results quickly.

Thanks Tom!

I have had physiotherapy in the past, but have found osteopathy has proved to be more successful when it came to being able to return to my sport. I have always felt that Tom genuinely cares about his patients and I found his calm and warm demeanour helpful

My 82 year old grandmother has been experiencing bad pains in her back, after numerous visits to the doctors where antibiotics kept being prescribed and scans at the hospital, nothing worked.

After a couple of sessions with Tom, she’s like a new woman!!

I can’t speak highly enough of our time at Evolve Osteopathy, Tom is a genuine, knowledgeable guy with such a caring attitude.

THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!!

I found his service to be excellent!

knee-pain-testimonial

I have visited Tom a few times for my knee problems and found his service to be excellent. He takes time to listen and has practical solutions and advice in between appointments and even when I am in the gym.

My knee is not seen as an isolated problem but as part of my body as a whole.

I have had shoulder problems before and this was really impressive!

evolve-shoulder-pain-testimonial

I went to Tom when I hurt my shoulder. After just two visits I had regained almost full mobility in the joint. I have had shoulder problems before and this was really impressive!

He has also improved my neck area, rotation is notably better than it has been for years, and it does not click/creak every time I turn my head! I intend to visit him at regular intervals to help maintain this, and undo some of the damage caused by a lifetime working on computers.

I have completely changed my eating habits and have learnt to eat a healthier balanced diet

mike-weight-loss-testimonial

When I started on the course I was taking medication for heartburn. I was the heaviest and most unfit I have ever been, I had weighed myself and I knew that I had put on weight, for a start my clothes didn’t fit me.

Through the advice I got on the coaching program, I have completely changed my eating habits and have learnt to eat a healthier balanced diet. I don’t see it as being on a diet, I see it more of a change of lifestyle.

My back is back to normal and I am now able to do the things I love

I just wanted to say thank you for your help.

I came in with a continuous back problem which was not resolving with the usual advice online. I saw you and in next to no time the pain disappeared! Now my back is back to normal and I am now able to do the things I love most like spending time with my grandchildren and going to the gym.

Many thanks for waving your magic wand!

My back has improved tremendously!

Since following Tom’s corrective exercise programmes my back has improved tremendously. I came to Tom because on more than one occasion my back froze, and I was unable to move for several weeks at a time. Neither could I sit, lie, stand or walk without taking strong painkillers. I was worried to do any thing that might trigger the problem again.

Now my back feels strong and pain free. I am able to do gardening, go for long walks and move freely without any tinge of trouble.  I’m very grateful, and would recommend Tom to anyone who is troubled by crippling back pain.

Overall I was very happy with the back care package!

The back care package really helped me to understand the structure of my back and aided me with the recovery from a previous back injury. Tom understands in great detail the possible causes of all sorts of possible aches and pains that you may have anywhere in your body and emphasises that even the tiniest movement or bad habit can be detrimental to ones posture and gives advice on how to avoid them.

As Tom used to be a personal trainer most sessions were spent going throw useful gym and floor exercises to both mobilise and strengthen my back. I also had a program to go through at home which was really helpful! Some of the exercises were tough as they targeted the weak links in my body and movement.

Tom was encouraging without pushing me too far as to cause any damage to my body.

Along with the gym exercises, some sessions were spent in the treatment room where Tom is happy to do some deep muscle work or manipulation on stiff joints.

Overall I was very happy with the back care package and have been given plenty of tools to continue with to ensure my spine is well looked after.

The back care package has been a life saver!

The back care package has been a life saver. The combination of treatment when needed and a ‘back to fitness’ programme aimed entirely at my issues with you as the personal trainer has really helped me on my way to full fitness.

Your extensive knowledge of the body and its functions, together with the impeccable professionalism sets you apart from many others.

I experienced very early on a dramatic change in my life and attitude…

On following Tom’s advice and strictly adhering to the recommendations he laid down, coupled with an exercise programme at the gym, I experienced very early on a dramatic change in my life and attitude. I cannot thank you enough Tom, for all the advice, guidance, help, support and enthusiasm you have generated for my benefit

Instantly after the initial visit my neck was much better

I saw Tom urgently about my neck, I could not move it and needed his help. Instantly after the initial visit my neck was much better and I could turn it without pain and stiffness. I can’t thank Tom enough!
