In 1997 I badly injured my right shoulder playing tennis, a sport I had always been particularly good at and loved to play. Six months of physio and gym exercise saw me back on court and swinging a raquet, but never to the same level as before the accident owing to the pain involved with a particular movement of my arm. After nine years of discomfort in doing many everyday things, from gardening to the washing up, in 2006 I visited a consultant surgeon and, after undergoing an MRI scan, was due to go under his knife. Then I met Tom Bedford. After one treatment, the discomfort in my shoulder was considerably reduced and the range of movement much greater. On Tom’s advice I decided not to go through with the operation but to continue with osteopathy as long as it produced good results. Those results have been very worthwhile. Sadly I live at some distance from Oxford, so treatments with Tom are only taken on those occasions that our paths cross (usually involving binoculars and birds!). I have benefited enormously under Tom’s healing hands and cannot speak highly enough of his skill, judgement and care. Daily life – and my backhand – are the better for knowing Tom.
