What our patients say about Paul Carter MSc, BSc, HCPC, MCSP, MAACP, MACPSEM, MSOMM
I’ve had 4 years of intermittent neck pain. During this time I’ve managed the pain by trying a variety of different therapists in the hope of finding relief but also a diagnosis . This has included 2 chiropractors, 3 Osteopaths, 3 Physiotherapists and sports massage. I’ve also been referred by the GP to the St Albans city hospital physio therapy department for a full assessment. None of these specialists could provide an answer as to why I was having these issues, they simply alleviated the discomfort for a while. I had largely accepted that this had become a chronic condition that I’d have to live with . Paul’s initial assessment found an entirely different cause. The problem was not in fact with my neck but rather with the A/C joint in my shoulder . Since starting treatment with Paul there has been a marked improvement and I now feel better equipped to deal with an episode of pain. His exercise program has strengthened my shoulder and I have much more movement in the joint as a result of his joint mobilisation treatment. He also wrote a letter to my GP and I was referred for a MRI scan which confirmed his diagnosis. I finally have a diagnosis and treatment plan that is accurate and effective. Thank you
