I have suffered shoulder pain for at least 5 years and have seen numerous specialists to treat this problem. I have seen Laurence on 4 occasions and in that short period of time has managed to reduce the pain considerably, something that no-one else has achieved. I cannot recommend him highly enough.

I'd been struggling with agonising shoulder pain for over 2 years, Laurence diagnosed the problem very quickly and after the 1st visit was 80 per cent better . One more visit and totally pain free now. Very professional and friendly service would highly recommend

I have been treated by Laurence for around the last 4/5 years and can recommend him as an Osteopath. The clinic is in a clean and restful environment and the staff are all extremely friendly. Laurence is very knowledgeable about all areas of the body and also takes into consideration other factors that may be affecting it. Laurence also advises self help at home, you don’t feel pressured into having lots of appointments which I have experienced at other clinics. If there are any issues in-between appointments he is accessible and happy to give advice.
