Lower Back Pain and sciatica are extremely common, but I focus on persistent pain. Why only persistent? Because if this is only the first or second time you’ve had back pain or you’ve only had it for a week, it’ll probably clear up on its own.
But it’ll almost certainly happen again (60% of them do). Once you realise that a quick fix isn’t likely, and you’re keen to play an active role in your recovery, then – and only then – will I see you.
I’m interested in long-term recoveries. There are many clinicians who will offer you a quick fix. As an osteopath with 25 years experience, I can do the quick fix, but so can others. If you want a long-term, sustainable improvement, then I can help.
I've been coming to this clinic for some time now and I've always received an excellent standard of care, from the friendliness and efficiency of the reception staff to the patience and understanding of Gavin as a practitioner.
I trust Active X Backs to treat me swiftly and effectively and to give me sound advice on taking care of my back as well as other aspects of health and lifestyle management.
Professional service. Fixed my hip pain within three sessions (and lots of tips for what to do at home). I can't recommend Gavin and his team highly enough.
One of those days that you can't move at all, came across Active X Backs after a lot of Googling, Gavin was able to book me in at a short notice, he was very knowledgeable on his work managing to relief pain just after the first session. I highly recomend Active X Backs due to they're friendliness starting at reception and Gavin's profissionalism. More...
I've been seeing Gavin for about 6 months now and highly recommend him.
I first went to see Gavin upon the recommendation of a friend. I was having long-standing middle back pain which was causing sleep problems as well as problems with movement and prolonged standing. I had little mobility in my neck and assumed it was the result of a fall on ice I had taken a few years back.
After 5 visits the pain is almost all gone, I am sleeping soundly and am experiencing much less discomfort in standing and sitting.
I am delighted with the results from seeing Gavin and look forward to continuing our relationship.

Gavin was recommended to me over 15 years ago and for that I am very thankful. My back issues flare up from time to time and Gavin is always able to diagnose and get me moving again. Sore back?......go and see Gavin!
Gavin has been my Osteopath for many years and I would thoroughly recommend him to anybody requiring treatment. He provides a first class service, takes a genuine interest in you as a patient, and is extremely punctual.
I have had regular appointments with Gavin for over three years now and I would have no hesitation in recommending a visit to Gavin for anyone with back issues. After a lifting accident, I injured my back and as usual you always know best yourself and hope that your issue will just go away by itself. Of course it did not and after seeing Active X advertised, I realised that I actually pass the clinic every day going to the office. So one day, I had enough of the pain and popped in to see Gavin and even after just one visit I could feel the benefits - I have been going back at regular intervals ever since, and I have never looked back (no pun intended) - the reality is NO PAIN now. My regular appointments keep my back in trim and Gavin sorts out any tight spots so that I have a pain free life now. So if you are suffering out there with back pain, don't waste any more time - get in to see Gavin and he will work his magic - you wont regret it! I cannot thank Gavin and his team enough, who provide a very professional and efficient service for back pain sufferers. More...

A great friendly invironment! Gavin helped me a lot with my back!
Very friendly staff, great location and effective treatment
I went to see Dr Routledge as I was suffering neck and shoulder pain as a result of spending too much time at my desk at work.
After 3 treatment sessions and following the exercise plan given to me I've had a substantial reduction in pain tand an increase in movement.
In addition, I found the reception staff to be friendly and welcoming and I'd highly recommend Active X to anyone. More...
I started going to the clinic a few months ago as I was suffering with sciatica and lower back pain. I'm so impressed with the treatment, advice and care I've received from Gavin. He is very experienced, professional, and the sessions are nice and relaxed. The receptionists are also welcoming and friendly. As my symptoms are rapidly improving, my visits are a lot less frequent. I'd definitely recommend this clinic! More...
