“After many years of persistent severe lower back pain which was seriously affecting my quality of life, and constant visits to Physiotherapists I was recommended to go to Mr Mcilwraith. I was slightly worried that it would involve bone crunching techniques but that is a myth. It is in fact gentle but very powerful and effective.
Mr Mcilwraith soon had me feeling much more relieved and I realised that I had at last found real positive help. It really is comforting to know that in the face of problems which mainstream medicine can do little to fix, there is an alternative. I know that I can count on him to straighten and stretch me out, so that I can function normally again. I visit regularly to keep myself in good order, and have learnt a lot about what triggers any setback .
My whole quality of life has improved tremendously and I recommend him unreservedly to anyone in need of a highly skilled knowledgeable and caring therapist.”
“I, my wife, and family have been patients of Bryan McIlwraith for over thirty years. His prompt and successful treatment of injury or wear and tear of backs and limbs has enabled us to return to living an active life.
In the mid 1990s Bryan identified a serious lower back condition causing crushing of both sciatic nerves and the onset of “foot drop”. He liased with my GP who in turn arranged for surgery which freed my spinal cord. The operation was a complete success. We cannot praise Bryan enough for his long term treatment and support.
"Mr McIlwraith has helped my back pain on numerous occasions and provides a quick and reliable service. He always fits me in when my back flares up and I cannot thank him enough for all the help and advice I have received from him over the last 6 years."
" I have been a patient of Mr Mcilwraith's since 1988. I have chronic back pain; very often I am in severe pain and walking with great difficulty, but he is always able to offer me an appointment quickly and get me mobile again.
Mr Mcilwraith readily explains all aspects of my back problems and carries out his treatment in a very professional manner. I would have no hesitation in recommending him as a practitioner in osteopathy."
“An active life as a livestock farmer has meant occasional severe pain and general weakness in my low back. Bryan McIlwraith’s regular treatment has enabled me to enjoy a continuous active and pain-free life. I recommend his services most highly”.
