What Our Patients Say

James Winters, Northampton
James Winters, Northampton,

I have been to other clinics before this one but Luke and the Back and Body are undoubtedly the best. I would have no hesitation in recommending them.

James Winters, Northampton,
I have been to the Back and Body clinic a number of times over the last few years and see Luke (Girvan). I am 71 years old and he has worked wonders on keeping my arthritis at bay. Without his exceptional skills I would not be half as mobile as I am now and would have probably needed replacement knee surgery. I only have appointments when necessary and use an exercise programme that he has devised for me. He always explains what is causing the problem in an easy to understand way and couldn’t be more professional in the way he explains and demonstrates what I need to do. I have been to other clinics before this one but Luke and the Back and Body are undoubtedly the best. I would have no hesitation in recommending them.

Aisling at the back and body clinic has proven to be an absolutely fantastic therapist.

Mike Cantelo, Northampton,
Aisling at the back and body clinic has proven to be an absolutely fantastic therapist. She has treated me for a recurring painful neck / shoulder issue and also a painful knee / hip concern. Aisling is extremely efficient, polite and can zone in on the problem area with laser like accuracy and with fingers of steel! Aisling has a fabulous approach, explains clearly how the muscles and nerves are working, what the issues are and how they arise, and in addition has endless patience explaining to a non-medical person. I always feel considerably better after each session, and with the clearly explained exercises to carry out between sessions I have seen issues which were problematic on a daily basis now relegated to occasional minor inconveniences. Thank you, and to the rest of the team at the Back & Body Clinic!

Following an injury to to by bicep at Karate I attended the clinic. The reception staff were very friendly and my physio Mike was great, he quickly identified the problem and came up with a treatment plan putting my mind at rest. After 6 weekly visits and exercises to carry out at home my arm is back to full strength. I would highly recommend the Bedford Back and Body clinic to anyone and my wife is now attending with an ankle injury that is now well on the way to recovery.

People write reviews all the time but I have to say this is 100% honest. If you are looking for a physio then look no further, You are in the right place and in safe hands. I have used the Back & Body clinic in Northampton and continue to do so. From start to finish, Lucy & team on reception, polite, helpful, knowledgeable to the physio team, Mike Mansfield, Sara & Emma. They will help, assist and do everything in their power to ensure you are receiving the correct treatment. They do not make you return if they feel you have all the tools to progress at home and only suggest you book again if beneficial to you, Not to them. I cannot speak highly enough of this company. Book now and know you're in safe hands.

As a result of physiotherapy I no longer require surgery at present. All Staff are very friendly receptionist to physiotherapists. My Physiotherapist Luke has been amazing!. His vast knowledge has helped me to understand / manage my condition.

I am 100% satisfied with the speed and degree of progress I've made.

Mark Faulkner, Northampton,
I've been visiting Tommy at Back & Body Clinic after developing an impinged shoulder, with significantly restricted range of movement and pain when I tried to use it freely. Tommy manipulated my shoulder and gave me exercises to perform at home. There was a significant improvement in range of movement and pain reduction after the first visit, and I have made steady progress over the subsequent 4 visits. I am 100% satisfied with the speed and degree of progress I've made. The pain went quite soon and the range of movement has continued to increase and is now very close to that of my good shoulder. Tommy is my first physio, and I find him really positive, friendly and professional. I have total confidence in him, and he's always a pleasure to visit. I've been to both the Wootton and Moulton clinics, and the overall sense of the organisation is friendly professionalism. I'm a very happy client.

Her mix of osteopathy, sports therapy and other specialisms is perfect for me. I am totally impressed with the excellent service she provides me. She talks me through the treatment in detail, teaches me how to make the improvements last and supports me fully in achieving positive health improvements - I will be continuing to see Shannan monthly to maintain my muscle health. A real diamond with a special ability to heal.

The professionalism and skill they have is the best around.

Maija Bissett, Bedford,
As someone who works in the fitness industry, being able to train and teach are vital to me. When an injury reared its ugly head, I needed to be seen by a physio sooner than later. Despite it being the weekend, the Back and Body clinic responded via Facebook quickly and I was booked in within hours of my initial enquiry. The professionalism and skill they have is the best around. The treatment I have had for my elbow and hip over several months has been fantastic. Mike the physio has worked the rehab around my work and training and given exercises that are simple, yet effective. No long lists of time-consuming exercises. Understanding that taking time off is not a possibility has been valuable. The Back and Body clinic is full of lovely people who have passion for their client’s wellbeing. Couldn’t be more grateful as I am!

Richard gave me a cortisone injection which has improved my shoulders movements 100%.

Derek Yarwood, Milton Keynes,
I have been attending back and body for many years with various injuries which have all been successfully treated. The reason I am writing now is just before lockdown I suffered with a pulled muscle in my shoulder. I was unable to lift anything above my head or raise my arm.  I contacted back and Body once again but due to lockdown my appointment was cancelled. They kept me fully informed throughout lockdown with email updates and useful tips. As soon as they were open I was one of the first to be seen along with information on how my appointment would be conducted. Richard gave me a cortisone injection which has improved my shoulders movements 100%. Without this I would not have been able to return to work. I can't thank them enough and would highly recommend back and body for their professionalism,care and dedication.
