On Saturday I suddenly and with no apparent cause, began suffering extreme pain from an upper back problem. As it became unbearable I called the Morpeth clinic in the hope of a quick appointment. The receptionist gave me a cancellation for the following afternoon. I mentioned that I had a wedding to attend on the weekend and within minutes of finishing the call I was contacted by the Cramlington Clinic offering an appointment that day. Lynne, the receptionist in Morpeth had called Cramlington to arrange this which I thought was very thoughtful and caring.
    I was seen by Andrew who worked on my back and gave me sound advice on how to continue my recuperation. I will not hesitate to use the clinic again and will recommend to friends & family.

     I visited Nick at The Physiotherapy and Sports Clinic following a disc prolapse in my lower back. Prior to my injury I had been an extremely fit and active young woman, and the sudden onset of pain impacted on all areas of my life. After enduring over a year in pain, with restricted movement and constant pins and needles, my GP recommended that I seek the expert guidance of Nick Clunies-Ross.

      As an extremely anxious patient, Nick immediately put me at ease. He was friendly yet professional, taking time to answer all of my questions with honesty and compassion. He fully explained all aspects of my care, including the use of hands on treatment, as well as the bespoke daily exercises that I was to do between appointments.

      After only a handful of sessions with Nick, I now have my life back. My pain has gone, my pins and needles have reduced significantly, and I can move freely and easily once more. I am thoroughly enjoying resuming my normal activities including my passion, rugged off road mountain biking!

     I know that I can return to see Nick should I require his expert knowledge in the future. However, he has provided me with excellent information on how best to manage my condition and get on with my life.

     I cannot put into words my gratitude to Nick for his care. I highly recommend The Physiotherapy and Sports Clinic.


     Dear Andrew:  Some comments by way of appreciation for your help last week:    
- thorough assessment    
- good memory of previous visit with reference to notes as appropriate    
- clear communication throughout and good listening skills    
- appropriate honesty and reassurance as necessary    
- effective treatment. 


     Val Edmondson has treated me for a number of years.  It is not an exaggeration to say she has dramatically improved my quality of life.  I think she is a remarkable therapist.

      I have suffered with persistent back pain for many  years and although I have always managed to maintain a reasonable level of fitness recently the pain in my lower back was becoming worse.  I visited Val Edmondson who gave me exercises to help me treat the cause not the symptoms, supported by acupuncture treatments.  I found the advice easy to understand and really felt listened to and understood. 
    The treatment package has made a considerable difference and I have been able to increase my training thanks to Val. 


     I transferred to the Physiotherapy and Sports Clinic as a result of poor post-operative support from the hospital following a total knee replacement. Nick provided good advice to me over the telephone even before my first consultation, and that first consultation was within a couple of days of that first telephone call.

    Throughout the four months I have been attending, Nick was always brutally honest with me, gave me advice and exercises with a full explanation of the purpose and benefit, and had a splendid way of encouraging me to do more and to do it better. I had total confidence in him from our first conversation.

    In the end, for what is generally accepted by the medical profession as a 9 to 18 month recovery period, Nick has got me just about there in 5 months. Without reservation. I would recommend his services to anyone.

     Hello Team! Just a quick message for Andrew, to say a big THANK YOU for helping my through my tendonitis and knee pain. I ran the Edinburgh Marathon the entire thing without stopping coming in at 3:56:47!!! I am thrilled and am feeling confusingly very good post-run. I certainly couldn’t have done it without Andrew’s help through my training and injuries.


     I would like to thank Lynn for all her help when making my appointments, explaining the process and help with finding you. I would also like to thank Andrew for the two sessions I had with him.

     I am not sure if it was the manipulation or the acupuncture or a mixture of both but it certainly did the trick. Thank you again and I would certainly recommend the practice to anyone else who was in pain.
