” I initially saw Michael by default because my then osteopath was full and I was in back crisis. I have been seeing Michael ever since. Michael has a recovery approach, he sets me homework so I can improve my problem in between appointments. I have had ongoing problems with my neck but after my pregnancy I lost all the strength and stability in my inner core, which led to lower back problems and my pelvis was sat at a funny angle. He has helped me to understand my problems and together we have solved them. I have full movement in my pelvis and a much stronger inner core. I no longer attend in crisis but as part of a plan. Thank you Michael! “

” Michael has been the only person able to fix me!

I have had over 13 years of widespread joint pain including my whole spine. I had undergone numerous diagnostic investigations and was constantly told that there was nothing wrong. I steadily increased my pain medication to try to ‘deal’ with the pain. Eventually I was taking over 40 pills a day and wearing pain relief patches on my skin. I couldn’t sleep, read, think properly, and I was just about maintaining my role as a teacher. I had no life outside of work as I was too shattered and down to do anything. “

” Last summer I suffered from an acute episode of lower back pain. This pain resulted in me having to take time off work, which was not financially sustainable. I went to see several private specialists regarding my problem, to which I had very little success. After speaking to Michael I booked an appointment. Michael was aware that I had a fair knowledge of injuries and explained things to me with detail. He offered a very hands on approach and my pain greatly reduced after two sessions allowing me to return to work. I would definitely recommend Michael for any future injuries and I will definitely use him myself if required. “

‘A year ago, when I was at my lowest, suffering, I could barely leave the house. I was suffering with a bad back and neck ache, constant fatigue, headaches and many other symptoms.

“Michael changed all of this and steadily increased my movement, reduced the pain – I can now read, socialise and take no medication at all! I can honestly say that I am pain free – and HAPPY! I owe this all to Michael! Thank you so much.”

“A year ago, when I was at my lowest, suffering from fatigue, I could barely leave the house. I was suffering with a bad back and neck ache, constant fatigue, headaches and many other symptoms.”

” A friend recommended Michael as the best osteopath ever, and I have to agree he is. He engages you and explains clearly what the problems are and what you can do to help yourself in addition to his treatments. Brilliant!”

“Michael was great, he understood my problem immediately and put in place a treatment plan to relieve the pain and to strengthen the muscles around the injury I substance while playing rugby.”

I am a triathlete and have completed a couple of Ironman races. I highly recommend Michael as a part of any training plan. He is an excellent osteopath with a detailed knowledge of how the body works. Not only is he able to unlock the inevitable kinks that occur during training, but he will also guide you through a set of exercises to build strength/stability that improve performance and reduce the chance of problems recurring.
I have seen many very good Osteopaths over the last 30 years but never one that has Michael’s approach. He truly is a wizard! In just three treatments over the last few months I have more mobility and movement, particularly in my neck and shoulders, than I have had for years. I have been very impressed by his skill and dedication in rooting out the cause of my problems rather than just treating the symptoms. I can’t recommend him highly enough.
I had lower back pain for almost 2 years after an injury from deadlifting with bad technique. I had been treated by another osteopath with no improvement. Then on recommendation from a friend I saw Michael. Previously I had experienced bad pain during the night that would sometimes keep me awake but after my first appointment I had complete relief for about a month. Just two more appointments and my back pain was gone completely. Would highly recommend Michael!
As someone with regular pain and fibromyalgia, I can highly recommend Elementary Health and Michael Parr. For over 10 years I visited numerous physios, osteopaths, sports therapists and everything in-between with no long-term improvement or development. Suffering with neck, shoulder, upper and lower back pain, I would usually visit a practitioner once or twice a week, while problems were acute. Since meeting Michael some 6 years ago, my visits are now once or twice every three months – Michael’s plan for me right from the beginning. Michael not only fixes short term pain with careful manipulation but develops one-to-one exercise plans to help prevent re-occurrence of the issues. I’ve never been looked after with such interest and attention to detail, Michael’s knowledge of the physical body and systems are second to none in my opinion.

” Michael always works hard to find the best way to work with and treat individuals to suit each one in the best way that benefits them in the long run, adapting, simplifying and finding alternative exercises if needed. Michael is always happy to go over these should you become unsure of them. Michael knows his information/facts well and always answers any questions you have in a way that’s easy to understand. All the treatment and exercises has helped a lot and got things moving and working again. 10/10 thanks for all your hard work and continuous enthusiasm! “
” In the past I have seen different people regarding my back and neck problems. I was getting weekly treatments to try and solve my problems but had to keep these sessions up to ease the pain, it was a very frustrating process. I saw Michael for 3 sessions and he got to the root cause of my problem straight away, he even gave me great strength exercises to reduce the problem from happening again. “

” I spent thousands of pounds at private clinics and doctors but no one could help me. I was introduced to Michael at Elementary Health about four years ago, Michael has been the only person able to diagnose my condition and help me with my various physical problems. Michael is very professional and has immense knowledge and he is able to answer all my questions. I am very happy to find such a professional person who can help me so much that I do not mind traveling from London to Cambridge to see him for my treatments. I truly recommend Elementary Health to anyone that is suffering from various muscle and joint aches. Thank you Michael very much! “

” My visits to Elementary Health have always been a good experience. With a good understanding of the body, postures, and osteopathic knowledge. Michael is teaching me how to correct my postures which are causing pain. Thank you Michael! “

“Michael is amazing ! He is very thorough, never skips over any details ! I have always found his aim is to help you to improve every inch of the way; he really cares ! I rely on his treatment; never hesitate to give out his number. “

” I went to Elementary Health with an elbow pain. When it was explained that my pain was coming from the neck and back I didn’t believe it, but I went on to have the manipulations and went home to do the recommended exercises. It is unbelievable that the pain in the elbow is gone. I would recommend anyone with pain to go there. I thought I had something sinister because I was in pain. All I needed was manipulation and exercise. “

” Excellent, reliable and professional service. Been having treatment for nearly 4 years now and couldn’t feel better. “
