I joined Michelle following a long term back and hip injury. The root of the problem was soon identified and I was given a set of clearly defined and well explained exercises. The clinic sessions were very beneficial with improvements noticeable following each appointment.I was helped to understand the root cause of my injury in very simple terms. This understanding made the exercises make sense.I also appreciated the alternative treatments (sports massage) suggested by Michelle to supplement the osteopathy sessions. I found this approach refreshing and believe it helped speed up my recovery.I have been injury free for over 8 ...

Michelle listened very carefully to my concerns, took a detailed case history and then proceeded to assess my back, postural alignments, legs and I am sure much more.  Michelle explains what she is doing throughout the process.  The treatment was excellent and effective.  Michelle ensured that I could do the exercises (simple ones) to help maintain the good work she had done.

I can thoroughly recommend the Hertford Osteopath to anyone suffering with back pain.  From my initial appointment, Michelle was great at explaining the treatment, talking through possible causes and how to avoid strains and stresses.  There was constant evaluation throughout my treatment, and the advice and support Michelle provided, with stretches and exercises, made it easy to make a difference between appointments too.   Friendly and natural throughout, this treatment has made a huge difference and the pain has now disappeared.  Thank you Michelle.

Dear Michelle, I  just wanted to send you a quick note to say thank you for correcting my back problem and ridding me of the pain I was suffering. From my first appointment I felt that you took the time to understand my problem and in turn explained very carefully how I had injured myself and how it could be treated. I was very pleased that it was corrected in such a short time frame and that you have taught me how to keep my back safe and regularly exercised in the correct manner.Thank you once again for your help.

Having had a healthy pregnancy and been very active regularly exercising throughout, I found it very painful and frustrating to suddenly - a couple months before the end - get pain in the lower back/upper leg which the midwfie diagnosed as sciatica relating to the pregnancy.  I went to Michelle in a lot of pain and hobbling with a walking stick.  Michelle was excellent - after a couple of sessions the pain had improved enormously and before the end of my pregnancy I was back swimming and without the walking stick.  I can highly recommend her, obviously very knowledgeable as an ...

I found Michelle extremely professional in her treatment of my back pain. She took a thorough history and spent time getting to know how my pain occurred and how my lifestyle might affect it. Her treatment was very effective and I will definitely use her again if I suffer in the future.

Having strained a back muscle quite severely, I sought the osteopathic services of Michelle Spencer. The initial consultation consisted of a very in-depth Q&A session aimed at finding out what my physical lifestyle was like, followed by a thorough visual and physical assessment of my body's condition from head to toe. This was followed by a short session of manipulation to locate and ease the discomfort. At the end of the consultation, movement was already much easier and Michelle provided me with advice, which was followed up in an e-mail, detailing the exercises I needed to complete to assist my ...

Having never visited an osteopath before, it’s hard to know where to start, but I am delighted my random choice turned out so well. I sought Michelle’s help because I was suffering from significant shoulder pain which kept me awake at nights and made me very grumpy indeed! I had had this pain for about two years, what a  waste.After taking a careful history, Michelle treated me for a rotator cuff problem and, even after one treatment the pain was significantly reduced. Following treatment, I went away with an exercise and treatment plan which I carefully followed, though it wasn’t ...
