What Patients Say...
Each patient is an individual with a unique experience of chiropractic and its benefits. It may therefore be useful for those considering chiropractic treatment to hear about the experiences of other patients.
Last week I found myself 360 miles from home, entertaining Spanish friends, when my lower back suddenly went into spasm. The pain was intense and at one point I was unable to move in any direction. My own chiropractor recommended Kate and she very kindly found me an appointment for the following day. I had complete confidence in Kate and she gently released the muscle spasm. I was able to continue to show my friends the beauties of Scotland from the following day. Thank you so much for saving not only my day but that of my visitors
I would like to thank you for the difference you have made to my well-being. Your friendly yet professional manner puts people immediately at ease and your skill in identifying and then treating the issue is to be commended. I will certainly be more than happy to recommend you to others who could benefit from your treatment.
I have been receiving chiropractic care for a number of years now for a long-standing back problem. The treatments are gentle and effective and enable me to maintain a full lifestyle including a demanding job. I have found the treatments extremely beneficial, not only for my spine but for all my joints. I do not think I would have been able to keep working if it wasn’t for chiropractic treatments from Kate and would highly recommend her to anyone suffering with back problems. With treatment I feel more resilient in dealing with day-to-day stresses of life. I honestly believe that life without this would be far less tolerable for me. The relief I experience is worth every penny and I’d urge anyone to give it a go!
I first decided to visit Kate after discovering I had arthritis in my hips. It was quite a shock and due to my anti-painkiller ethos a chiropractor seemed to be my answer. Kate gave me hope and support explaining how she could help with pain relief and giving me self-help ideas to maintain my mobility. I am so grateful to be able to visit Kate whenever I need treatment, which gives me better mobility and ideas to continue moving forward with this potentially debilitating disease. I would definitely recommend anyone with arthritis to try a chiropractor!
I came to Kate with back pain after moving house by myself. Although sceptical at the beginning of my first treatment I walked out a true convert (and a lot smoother and more balanced than I had hobbled in!) I have treatments on a regular basis to make sure I maintain the health of my back and the whole of my body. Kate is a lovely individual who put me at ease as soon as I met her.
I have been receiving treatment from Kate Walder for just over a year. Previously I had been having sports massages to relieve the tension round my neck and shoulders which was affecting the muscles near my ears and causing often severe earaches (particularly in cold weather). Because I had so many issues arising from poor posture, it was suggested that I try chiropractic instead. After a few sessions with Kate I found that my posture had improved quite noticeably. More long-term results are that the earaches are practically eradicated, even in cold weather when muscles tend to tense up. Through chiropractic care I am free from ear pain. I know my posture has improved and I am less prone to aches and pains after activities such as gardening.
Kate is extremely thorough in her assessment. She always explains the detail during treatment sessions to you in a clear and understandable way. Her treatment sessions have been very successful and have helped sort out problems that have accumulated over a number of years for several of us in the Fundraising team.
After suffering with debilitating lower back and leg pain for many years and trying different treatments, with regular chiropractic sessions with Kate I am pain free. She is someone who I can highly recommend, who will give you fair and competent treatment and advice.
