Degenerative Lumbar Spine

I THOUGHT I WILL NEVER WALK STRAIGHT UP AGAIN! In October 2016, I woke up with pain in my right gluteus muscle and a bit of pins and needles in my right foot. From March 2017 – May 2018 I visited chiropractors, physiotherapists, biokineticists, a lynotherapist, a pain and nerve release practitioner and tried body stress release. These treatments gave me little relief and pain still persisted. From March 2018 my pain was excruciating.

Neurological Disease

What a wonderful caring doctor! My husband, who has a neurological disease with multiple disabilities, felt safe and secure in his hands. We loved his approach to osteopathy (as this is not the first osteopath we have used). We highly recommend Dr Ashburner - who is 1 of only 2 practitioners in the entire country who is trained in the Perrin Technique, which proved very useful for my husband’s ME.

Vertigo - Dizziness

I have been suffering from motion sickness most of my life. Vertigo seemed to have taken over, taking about a week to disappear. So, for a few years I suffered on and off with Vertigo, even doing the Vertigo relief exercises, and taking nausea and dizzy tabs, which left me on a high, and Vertigo lingering in the background. As of this year, I’ve been suffering a lot more.

Neck and shoulder pain

I went to Guy Ashburner after experiencing about neck and shoulder pain for around six months. I was quite desperate, as I had already consulted two physios (neither had been able to give any lasting relief through massage, needling or home-based exercises). Guy’s approach was quite different, and far more holistic. My pain was hugely diminished after the first treatment, and then, about 10 days after my second appointment, the pain disappeared completely.

Locked Jaw

My son has been suffering with locked jaw for the last 1 1/ 2 years. He has been in a lot of pain and not even being able to open his mouth wider than a certain point. After trying a few different things we were referred to Dr Ashburner. After the first session he already felt a huge relief and could open his mouth wider than before. By the 3rd session he could open his mouth completely and has no pain.

Frozen Shoulder testimonial

Guy Ashburner is a guy who knows his craft. I suffered for many many years with shoulder problems that were labelled frozen shoulder, rotator cuff injury, osteoarthritis, even surgeons wanting to operate. All labels that added insult to injury. This man ( I kept saying to myself ‘This man knows what he is doing’) This man slowly but surely rubbed and moved fascia, reminded me to do only 2 very important exercises.

rehab training

Dr Guy is a very knowledgeable practitioner with knowledge across the board. He was able to help me with my injury recovery in a way that no-one else could although I have been to several practitioners. His advice on my rehab training made all the difference and got me to a new point of motivation. I would highly recommend Dr Guy’s treatment and service, as it has been a life changing aid for me in terms of my view on my body and what I can achieve despite my multiple injuries.

Tight upper back

My SHIP therapist referred me for Osteopathy and I was lucky enough to find Dr Ashburner. For the first time I have received “coaching” regarding my poor posture - he doesn’t just “rectify”, he coaches you to correct the underlying bad habits - how to adjust the seat in your car, what chairs are good or bad, how to stand up and sit down, how not to bend down, etc.

Tinnitus

I developed a sporadic, low-pitched buzzing/humming in my right ear that would come and go with varying intensity, and seemingly no reason nor pattern. I went to the G.P., an E.N.T., an audiologist and a Tinnitus specialist and neither of them could determine the cause of the buzzing nor offer a solution to remedy the issue. At the suggestion of a friend and basically as a last resort I visited Dr.
