I had been suffering from lower back pain for five months before I was referred to James by Prof John Dowell. Prior to my referral I had been treated by many well-meaning professionals who had given me conflicting advice. I was living in constant pain that had completely altered my life, I had given up working and any hope of a social life. Everyday tasks such as bending to reach into cupboards were beyond me, and I felt that I would never have a normal pain free life again. After starting my treatment with James within a few weeks I was 80% better, and I now have my life back. I have resumed work, my studies and going to the gym, and feel able to play an active role in my family as a wife and mother. Thank you so much for all your help James.

I had been suffering with back pain for many years, trying NHS Physio, chiropractors etc. where I started to finally give up and accept the pain. However in December 15 it got much worse to the degree that it hurt to stand or sit or doing anything and was affecting my day to day life. I started worrying at the age of 25 that I was never going to be pain free and normal again or worrying it was something worse.

I then went to a private hospital for various tests all looking for the worst case and once these all came back negative I was later referred to a specialist for back pain “James Davis”. I have only had 7 sessions with James and I am almost back to my normal self. I have to admit when I was first referred to James/physiotherapy I was sceptical because I have been to NHS physio before and it never helped. How glad I am that I gave my referral a go and met James.

Thank you so much for all your help James. Your knowledge in my back pain and knowing everything that helped has been tremendous help and the relief now from not letting back pain rule my life. Thank you for helping me feel like a young person again and given me my youth back. I honestly didn’t think I could go a minute let alone a day without thinking about the pain or letting it rule me.

I will continue with all the exercises and knowledge you bestowed to me and if I ever have problems again won’t hesitate to call you.

I could confidently and highly recommend James to other sufferers. His knowledge in chronic lower back pain is amazing. If you are as sceptical as I was prior treatment, try a session and you won’t leave without booking another and be on the road to a pain free life again.

I have known James for many years, since 1992 in fact when he first came to work with me at Essex CCC after four years at Lords, on the recommendation of some of my players at the time. Physios in cricket spend a lot of their time looking afer bowlers and batsmen but fortunately I had just a few occasions to call upon his expertise when I was playing for Essex and England. I have used him more since I retired from playing cricket and he has always sorted me out quickly especially when I was the batting coach for England.
His approach to physiotherapy is very different and far more effective than other forms of physiotherapy, and I have seen a lot in my time, because he always treats the cause so that your pain or problem goes within a few treatments. James does not use machines but relies on his skills to assess movement problems and then gives the right exercises to get you better. I know he looks on the world stage for effective treatments with strong professional ties with Australia.

Nothing is too much trouble for him and if he feels the solution is not a physio thing he has an excellent network of medical consultants to call upon who can resolve the problem quickly. In professional sport it is vital to have someone to rely on to get you or the players under my jurisdiction better quickly and James seems to do that efficiently and without fuss. That is why I send my family along to him when the need arises and so I would thoroughly recommend anyone to use him. Thanks for all your help James, I really appreciate it.

Further to my recent visits to your clinic in Chelmsford, I am pleased to say that the treatment that you carried out on my shoulders, back and hip have helped me immensely, so much to say that on one occasion it felt like a miracle had occurred the following day after your teatment. After years of pain and discomfort I felt I had to write to let you know. Your assistance is greatly appreciated.
