Osteopathy

“I had no idea how important a good osteopath was until I decided to run the Marathon des Sables in 2007, never having run before. Training for 5 marathons in 6 days with a back pack means (in my case) an injury a month (ankle, leg, back, shoulder) and Sam’s enormous skill, and natural ability, solved each of them in turn. This has now lead me to regular sessions to keep my body in better shape through regular visits [combined with other, complementary, fitness/core training]. I have recommended Sam to many friends and without exception they comment on his great skill, and natural empathy to assist all of them significantly with various aches and pains (nearly everyone I know has a back problem of one sort or another!). Sam is seriously brilliant and I would guarantee anyone that a visit to him will change their life for the better.”

“I have had back problems on and off for many years, it finally got so bad that I was in almost constant pain and struggled to stand upright when I got out of bed and experienced sharp spasms of pain when carrying anything. I started to see Sam and the improvement was amazing. He immediately identified the cause of my back problems and treated it as well as recommending daily exercises. At first I saw Sam weekly and this gradually decreased as my back improved and I now see him every 6-8 weeks due to the nature of my issue. I recommend Sam to everyone I meet who is suffering with back pain. I have been amazed at both his treatment abilities and also his wealth of medical knowledge. I trust him completely and appreciate his calm, pleasant manner.”

“Over a period of some 13 years, Sam’s treatment has ensured that there has been no deterioration in a chronic hip condition; hip joint replacement surgery, which had been anticipated, has not been necessary. His attention to detail, his ability to home in on and clearly explain the underlying issues that need to be managed, have consistently provided confidence in his skill and approach.”

“I saw my GP to see if there was any help for my osteoarthritis which had become very painful – she recommended that the only possible solution was to consult an Osteopath. So it was that I was introduced to Bevis Nathan and Samuel Maddock. I have been attending their clinic, and with Samuel for a number of years. Samuel has treated the effects of osteoarthritis in my feet and subsequently the effects of muscular aberrations from taking statins. Every visit has been timed to ensure that my pain threshold is rarely reached, my walking ability has over time improved dramatically and is much more comfortable. Samuel seems to get to the root of the problems I present to him very quickly and efficiently. Every visit is greeted with quiet attention, enthusiasm and constant care and, is always enjoyable. It’s not often one meets with this level of constancy, care and indeed a gentlemanly approach. His studies into existing and new approaches to his science and craft is very interesting and re-assuring.”

“I have been having osteopathy appointments with Sam since I damaged my back after a car accident over 10 years ago. Even though this was successfully treated, I have continued receiving regular treatment as maintenance for back and neck stiffness (caused primarily by my desk job).
In this time Sam has also helped massively for relief from migraines.

Sam is very friendly and easy to get on with, and explains the treatment he gives very clearly. I am glad that I found a practitioner that I trust and consider Sam's holistic approach to treatment as an essential element of my general health and well-being.”

“I first spoke to Sam during a new onset of cluster migraines whilst on holiday. His kindness and caring personality married with his obvious wealth of knowledge in this area came across and by the end of our call I was reassured to self manage until our face-to-face consultation.”

PEMF

“My decision to buy the iMRS PEMF mat is probably one of the most life changing decisions I have made....but you don't just get the mat and it's applicators, you get the advice and outstanding support from Samuel which is second to none. I presented him with various health issues and he has always been there to help me understand and guide me through the best bespoke programmes for my needs. I am starting to see the benefits and am confident that my health will get better and better.”
