I have suffered with back problems ever since I was a teenager when I had a spinal op to correct a curvature of the spine by inserting a metal rod to straighten the upper third. I also have a slightly rotated ribcage which means that my back is never in the position it should be in. I spent years trying to find a practitioner who could help me maintain my spinal health as from time to time I suffer bouts of pain, sprains and extreme stiffness which can be debilitating, as my spine is under a lot of pressure and my back in general has to work very hard to function. I have only ever found two people whose treatment was effective; one is now in Australia, the other is Tom Bedford. I see him whenever I feel that my back is "about to go" although sometimes I leave it a bit too long and I am in severe pain by the time I see him. He is always extremely sensitive about the way he treats my back, I never feel unsafe in his hands, and his treatment seems to be more effective, more quickly than any other osteopath or chiropractor I have seen. He is very gentle and always takes time to ensure that I am fully relaxed before he does any manipulations. My sister, my mother and my husband have all had successful treatments from him as well and I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone in need of help, no matter how severe their problem. I am currently pregnant and have so far seen him twice during my pregnancy as I started having serious pain somewhere new. Within 24 hours I was back to normal again. Tom Bedford Rocks!
