I have been a regular visit to Charles Read Osteopaths for many years, where my ongoing back problems have been managed very professionally. The service from the greeting at the door to the treatment received is first class and I happily recommend this practice to friends and family.

“I highly recommend this team of osteopaths who have treated me for some years. As a retired nurse with a long-standing back problem, I know that without their excellent care and treatment I would be unable to lead the busy and active life I enjoy.”

- Mrs S Ritchie, SRN SCM

“Very friendly, very professional and always fixed any ailments I have. Top quality service at your doorstep. Can’t ask for more.”

- MikeS-308

“After having two hip replacements and some spinal problems I needed pain relief and mobility help. I received this by having regular treatment from Mr Charles Read at his osteopathic practice. He and his two colleagues are dedicated to their work and have given so many people a better quality of life. I would not have kept so active without the help and advice from Mr Read. His receptionists are always helpful and do try to arrange appointments quickly if it is an emergency.”

- Mrs BM

“Charles Read & Associates is the best osteopathic practice I have ever used. Whether for an acute problem, or a regular ‘maintenance’ visit, the treatment is excellent and the osteopaths and staff are understanding, supportive and courteous. I have found out more about how my body works from Charles and his colleagues than I ever have from visiting my GP!”

- Lesley Harmer

“Charles Read is pleased to treat patients who suffer from a chronic condition. He responds with tenacity, creativity and patience to the challenges such patients present. I am just so grateful to the person who recommended him to me.”

- A satisfied patient

“Charles and Alison Read have treated myself and my family for over 20 years now and I cannot recommend the practice highly enough.

They have helped me immensely through back problems caused by a fall as a child and chronic back pain due to high stress. They also treated my very ill mother with care and compassion and have become an integral part of mine and my family’s life.”

- Anya

“I have suffered from a bad back now for many years through various ailments from a neck injury and from having a very stressful job as a teacher. As a result, I have been coming to the practice for many years – it is part of my ‘time’ for looking after myself.

I have been treated by most of the osteopaths on the team and they all offer the same high level of experience, care and well-informed advice about what works for me. As well as treating the symptoms the team has educated me to understand the cause of the symptoms and treated them. This is what makes the difference. Thank you.”
