Testimonials

"

I just felt I had to write to you to thank you ever so much for your help in getting me back to normal after my shoulder operation. With over thirty years of competitive sport under my belt at both national and international level, I have been treated by a physio or two, but never have I been treated by someone with such outstanding knowledge, total professionalism and always a smile on his face. I am sure that my left shoulder which had the operation is now in better shape than my right! Many thanks.

When I first came to see you I was in extreme pain with my left hip and leg which quite frequently even disturbed my sleep. These problems which were brought on by playing golf, my main recreation, resulted from an arthritic hip.

Having worked together during my playing days at Gillingham Football Club, Andrew has helped me recover from many injuries including rehabilitation after my knee surgery. I regularly refer players and friends to him.

I've suffered from osteoarthritis for nearly three decades which can cause me acute problems sitting, walking and travelling. Since I moved to Kent 4 years ago, Andy and his colleagues have done much to help me help me 'keep going'.

From top class treatment to devising exercise programmes that help me manage my condition, they are always my first recommendation to friends and colleagues in need of osteopathy or physiotherapy.

I had a cruciate ligament replacement operation about 25 years ago. In the last few years I have been experiencing regular pain and my knee had become permanently flexed, my posture and back were also being affected. I decided to visit Andrew Buckley at his practice.

Andrew assessed my condition and asked me to return for another appointment when he had considered my problem. After the second appointment I already felt some improvement. Andrew gave me some stretching exercises to do at home; they take less than one hour per day to complete.

Troubled by back and hip pain I remembered how two of my colleagues at work had been treated by Andy and were enthusiastic to recommend him. After a few visits I benefited from his relaxed but professional approach and am now so much better; clearly I have a lot to be grateful for.

Clinic treatments for our family have ranged from chronic back pain management to acute sports injuries. Andrew has seen us through rugby matches, gym training and half marathons. We are also delighted with the reliable, prompt, effective and appropriate service.

Injury is frustrating for any person. As a runner I am grateful for Andrew and his team to get me back on the road quickly and efficiently.

Six months ago at the end of the last hockley season my left shoulder was so painful that i could hardly lift it above the horizontal without it feeling like a knife was being stabbed into it. I could not last a hockey game. What was wrong - were my sporting days over as i could not also bowl a ball at cricket?.

Andy diagnosed a frozen shoulder which he said at worst case might take up to 2 years to mend. Somewhat depressed i followed a regime of physio sessions with you at team buckley and exercises in between. 4 months later i was playing hockey gently again and now at the start of a new season i am 99% there.

Your professionalism , friendliness and ability have also made it a pleasure visiting you for treatment.
