I have suffered on and off for years with various lower back, upper back, neck and elbow complaints. They have ranged from poor mobility from over exertion and general wear
In all instances the practitioners at Orchard House Health have provided me with the right care and injury management to get me back to regular mobility.
Orchard House Health is by no means convenient for me. I have always lived more than 40 minutes away from its base. This has meant on occasion and sometimes to comply with my medical policy
requirements, using more local and more convenient practitioners. However, I have recently been reminded why finding the time and making the trip to Orchard House Health is really worth doing
I had a complicated elbow and upper back complaint after undertaking some home renovation. For a year I worked with local services to manage the issues with limited success. After only three sessions
with Orchard House Health, my mobility has returned to normal, my sleeping dramatically improved and I no longer had to wince when picking my children up.
The team, and Tom Hewetson in particular, were absolute professionals from the start to the end of my care with them. Tom told me upfront in my first session, that he would do an initial
investigation to try and determine what the problem was and if he could help. In that initial consultation Tom said he would be looking for several things, but most importantly that my complaints
weren't the result of something more sinister going on that would need further investigation by a doctor. This isn't lip service, in my first ever consultation with Tom, some fifteen years ago, Tom
did refer me back to a doctor. That resulted in me eventually having an MRI and the diagnosis of a bulging disc. Armed with this information, I went back to Tom and he was able to provide some care
and aftercare management pointers. My quality of life has remained as good after that diagnosis and Tom's care as it was prior to the time before the pain initially occurred.
Tom and the team are exceptional in their patient care, pain management and above all keeping you fully appraised of your condition and the progress being made. You don't feel like a commodity at
Orchard House Health, if they can't help they will tell you and point you in the right direction.
I highly recommend Orchard House Health.
I have been to 3-4 osteopaths in my time for a recurring neck pain which has been causing me very painful headaches. Unfortunately none of the previous osteopaths could help me
but after only 1 session with Nick Aston I already feel a million times better. Nick was knowledgeable and extremely thorough..he spent over an hour on my initial consultation. He knows what he is
talking about and just wish I went to his clinic earlier would have saved me months of pain. Thanks Nick keep up the good work!
Just want to say a massive thank you
to Nick Aston. Your healing hands managed to achieve in 5 minutes what 5 years of doctors, physios,
chiropractors, x-Rays and MRIs on my shoulder couldn't Thank you thank you thank you!
"Tom is a first class osteopath who has worked with me since 1998 when I was first treated as a
Wasps development player. Throughout my rugby career I have continued to work with Tom for treatment at his clinic as he has an exceptionally good understanding of sports injuries and understands the
mentality of sports men and women to provide them with expert advice to deal with their injuries and prevent further injuries.
I highly reccommend Tom to anyone I know who has injuries as I trust him wholeheartedly to
provide excellent treatment with a very friendly and personable nature. One further element I like about Tom is that he has evolved his treatment techniques to embrace latest research and a wide
range of treatment disciplines".
