I need to thank you so very much for all that you did to help me while on vacation. Not only for the excellent treatments, but also for the wonderful recommendations to look up someone in Ottawa. I owe you a great deal more than just the words “Thank You”. All the best.
Saw Rob for lower back pain in September ’13. Rob was professional and very knowledgable and sorted out by back pain within a number of treatment sessions. I would not hesitate in recommending Rob.
I went to see Rob after around two years of a persistent back problem. I felt immediately better after treatment and the exercises and stretches he recommended to me, I do on an almost daily basis and I’ve really felt the benefits. Thanks.
I needed to see an osteopath in Hitchin and found Rob at Hitchin Osteopathy. I had ongoing knee problems due to hypermobilty in my joints. Rob quickly recognised this and treated me also providing exercises to help with long-term stability. Thanks to Rob I can walk around pain free. I would recommend Hitchin Osteopathy to anyone.
I came to see Rob with a frozen neck and very bad back and shoulder pains. We had 3 very intensive sessions and my mobility returned slowly but surely until after 3 sessions, I was able to move freely and with no pain. In addition, I see him every few months as a preventative measure to keep myself pain free. Rob is very professional, very skilled at his role and a pleasure to deal with.
I initially visited Rob for a sports massage which I decided I needed when my muscular aches and niggles just got too much to bear. It takes a lot to impress me and I recognised after my first appointment he really knew what he was talking about and best of all was passionate about helping people improve their mobility and biomechanics. I love Crossfit and Krav Maga, both can be punishing for your body, so having an Osteopath I trust is imperative. Unfortunately early in 2015 during a Krav Maga technique, I sustained a significant injury that meant I couldn’t train at all for almost three months. During this time I saw Rob regularly, his treatment and advice were invaluable in getting me through the injury without a chronic problem. With his help and assistance thankfully I’m now back training in both Krav Maga and Crossfit feeling strong, happy and confident. I can’t recommend him enough, he’s professional, knowledgable and approachable.
“I had been experiencing quite severe pains in my arms and back due to my job and booked an appointment with Rob. I haven’t experienced these pains since visiting Hitchin Osteopathy. I now book regular monthly sessions of acupuncture and muscle manipulation sessions and have really noticed a huge improvement in my own physical and mental health. I would highly recommend Hitchin Osteopathy”.
“I contacted Hitchin Osteopathy as I had injured my lower back, As a performer it was really important to have this looked at within a short time frame. When I contacted Rob I was really happy to find out that he could fit me in to his busy schedule within a day. Rob made sure that I understood what he was going to do and then began treatment. After I got home and during the course of 24 hours I noticed a great improvement. I would recommend Hitchin Osteopathy to anyone as I felt that I was looked after well and I felt better really quickly. Thank you for first class treatment! Cannot recommend highly enough.”
I would be happy to recommend you to anyone suffering with back pain.
As I mentioned at our first meeting prior to using you I had been using another guy for around 18 months with only small improvements now & again.
You are a revelation & from the start you have been true to your word & always worked towards extending the periods between visits, Over six months I have gone from needing to see you every couple of weeks to now, seeing you every couple of months.
Your level of professionalism & the value for money I always get is first class.
“After getting treatment fromHitchin Sports Massage I felt immediate pain relief and with the rehabilitation exercises and stretching I am now able to train pain free.”
I’ve known Rob for a couple of years now, he is the only osteopath I trust to use and recommend. Rob has treated me for different issues on various occasions, each of these issues have been rectified in one treatment. Rob is very thorough in his assessments and post care advice.
“I first saw Rob after searching for osteopaths in Hitchin. I had pain in my low back which was limiting my movement and causing pain. This was aggravating me at work and preventing me playing with my kids. Rob was very professional and involved me in his examination and treatment. After the first treatment I went from barely being able to bend forward to touching my toes. I was over the moon. Three more treatments and I was back to the gym, boxing and running but most importantly feeling confident to play with my kids. Thanks.”
“With 3 young kids my upper back pain was getting worse. I couldn’t believe just one consultation and treatment with Rob loosened me up and got me running around again.”
My chronic low back pain was starting to interfere with golf so I got treatment from Hitchin Osteopathy. Rob is friendly, knowledgeable and always able to help. Not only does he resolve the on-going problem but gives useful advice on what you can do to prevent them re-occurring. Highly recommended.
I visited Hitchin osteopathy after suffering a stiff and painful lower back for a few months. Rob assessed me and recommended some treatment including deep tissue massage and joint articulation. Rob came across very professional and competent and made me feel very comfortable. The treatment was excellent and walking out afterwards felt almost heavenly. I actually drove home with no stiffness. I had three sessions in all and my back feels so much better. I would definitely visit again if needed. Thanks again.”
“Just when I thought my low back pain was permanent two treatments later I’m pain free and back in the gym.”
It’s all good news!! Only two sessions seeing Rob and my chronic calf tightness is on the mend! I did my exercises and I can now run longer distances, more frequently and only get limited pain. It feels like a miracle, and I owe Rob big time 🙂 It has made me so happy being able to up my running, plus it has played a part in enabling me to achieve my weight loss goal (now lost 6kg in total since around June!) – so THANK YOU!”
I first attended Hitchin Osteopathy with a range of ailments with my main gripe being shoulder pain with a very limited range of motion. This was the result of years of lifting weights without properly warming up and stretching. I could barely lift my arms straight overhead without pain in my low back and shoulder pain. Rob carried out a thorough exam and explained that when I was lifting weights overhead I was leaning back to compensate for the restrictions in my shoulders. His treatment really open up my chest, loosen my shoulders and un-knotted my back to allow for significant improvements both in my pain. This helped my sporting performance and my general comfort day to day.
Rob also provided a number of stretches and exercises to do whilst at home to complement the treatment. The whole experience with Rob has really helped me pay attention to my daily aggravating factors that increase my tightness and highlighted the importance of self-maintenance.
All in all Rob has fixed my shoulder pain, low back pain and improved my flexibility all in just 4 sessions. I am very happy I found Hitchin Osteopathy.”
“I have been to Rob a number of times for several different conditions, normally associated with over-doing it at the gym or a running injury. Rob performed a thorough investigation and review of my history and issues and was able to work on my problem areas during the same session to help remove the immediate source of pain. He takes time to listen to you and consider your options and then explains his diagnosis in plain English. Rob has identified underlying issues causing this and helped me with a plan of action, as sessions are further apart I appreciate the personal approach and also, being of a certain age, that he does not push for extreme exercise regimes, just sensible remedial routines. I have referred several friends to Rob and they share my positive opinion and enjoy the result they achieve.”
“I had a problem with my back, possibly brought on by heavy lifting at work so decided to see Rob at Hitchin Osteopathy. The first session involved a lot of questions from Rob about the problem I had, my medical history, and of course some treatment. Rob really took the time to find out what the problem was before starting treatment. The care taken whilst in the treatment room filled me with confidence that Rob new exactly what he was doing. The pain I was experiencing subsided over six weeks, and I felt so much more confident at work after treatment.The treatment and the advice given were top notch and I would have no hesitation in recommending Rob and Hitchin Osteopathy. Many thanks Rob! Your help has been invaluable.”
