I have suffered with upper and lower spine problems for 30+ years following an accident. Over time, I have tried all sorts of treatments, physiotherapy, osteopathy, chiropractors, sports massage, acupuncture with varying degrees of success, but I’ve needed to support the treatment with a cocktail of paracetamol, ibuprofen and, at times, codeine.

A friend suggested I try Backfit and I’m so pleased I did. Their treatment is different to other therapies I have tried in so far as they do not just treat the symptoms but the body as a whole, almost resetting it. Their treatment is gentle, relaxing and there’s no ‘bone crunching’ but perhaps what makes Backfit different is their focus on ‘aftercare’. I was asked to change my posture, given a variety of exercises and told that the key to improvement was to follow the programme rigorously.

Their treatment has worked well for me, probably best evidenced by the fact that the time between treatments continues to increase and my intake of supplementary pain relief has reduced significantly. The key though is the exercise programme and changing posture, the latter being especially difficult as I was so set in my way. It felt very strange standing differently and it has taken quite some time to get used to it however I now reached the stage where it feels more unnatural standing the old way. All I can say is that it has been worth the persevering as I’m now really feeling the benefits.

I’d have no hesitation in recommending them.
