"I have been suffering from back problems for a long time and having a high quality osteopathic treatment has always been essential to my well-being. As the owner of a demanding business requiring long hours in the office, this problem has become particularly pertinent in the last years. Having tried treatments by four other professionals to no great satisfaction, I finally met James through a personal recommendation. Not only has he been able to diagnose me correctly for the first time since my back problems began, he has also been able to rehabilitate me quickly each time, whether for pain caused by work stress and long hours of inactivity or caused by sports injuries. James has a unique holistic understanding of the body and is always able to find the right solution for any situation. Needless to say, I have already recommended James to a number of people and will continue to do so."
"James and Back to Back have literally changed my life. James has not only resolved my back and shoulder injuries but has also given me the tools to support myself in the future. Every treatment is always carefully considered and his holistic approach and methodology are nothing short of miraculous. An exceptional practitioner and a wonderful human being."
"I have always led a very active and sporting lifestyle and during it I have had my fair share of injuries. Between the ages of 14 and 16, I suffered from various back injuries due to rapid growth spurts. Before my parents introduced me to James Dodd I had been to see a variety of physiotherapists recommended by my clubs but did not feel they were making any progress. Finally, I made an appointment with James and came out happy with his approach and knowledge of my injuries. I then carried on visiting James for a few weeks and soon my back injury was sorted. I have also been to see James recently about groin and calf injuries and he helped me to get back to full fitness as quickly as possible."
"Before finding the Earlsfield Osteopath I had seen numerous physios and therapists, but never found anything that really ‘worked’. James really cares about your recovery and well-being, and his treatment and advice are extremely effective – meaning less frequent visits than ever before! Have recommended him to friends and family with high praise all round."
"When I told James I was going to train to enter my first sprint triathlon www.humanrace.co.uk at the age of 45, I knew he'd be excited. I've known him and been treated by him for many years and James' passion for all things physiological has been with him since his teens. After developing a problem which initially hindered my progress, James treated me and had me back running, cycling and swimming without too much of a 'hole' in my training regime."
"Back to Back was recommended to me after numerous years of back and leg pain. James really worked out what the issues were and has taken me from where I could do no sport and was in pain every day, to being able to complete 500 miles of the Tour de France route last year! I can't recommend Back to Back highly enough."
"My age and fitness are in conflict with my desire to take on extreme and eccentric sports. As a consequence I frequently suffer from injuries to my back, knees, ankles etc. I have been a patient of Back to Back for over ten years and would recommend them. I particularly appreciate the approach that looks at the biomechanics of the body as a whole rather than just the specific symptoms that are apparent at the time.
It is also extremely helpful that James seems to have a network of excellent specialist physicians; so referrals, where necessary, are always very satisfactory too."
