"Over several years now I've been coming to Carol at the Park Lane Practice - everything from back ache to a ham string injury after chasing a squirrel who was attacking the bird nuts. Carol is calm and confident, soothing away anxieties and pain, and with such a real healing vocation that you come away relaxed, comfortable and with a wonderful feeling of being put back together again!" L.L.
"Park Lane Practice is friendly and professional. Iam currently being treated by Carol Plumridge for neck and back problems. I highly recommend the practice."
"A patient since 1994 - Dawn Hardy (Rowland) is simply THE BEST. I would be lost without her regular treatments."
"I always receive a first class, friendly service. One usually always visits an osteopath because we have pain somewhere, and Dawn always puts me at ease so that treatment is easier."
"For the past 6 years I had been suffering with daily headaches that had been getting progressively worse. It got to the stage where I was also experiencing daily shooting pains down the left side of my face. During these 6 years, I had been to see several different GPs and had told them about a solid lump I had on the left side of my neck. Not one of the GPs I saw examined my neck, all kept saying it was muscular stress and told me to take paracetamol, ibuprofen or a mixture of both. The last GP I went to see told me that I was suffering from depression and suggested either anti-depressants or counselling. This prompted me to seek alternative advice and so I booked an appointment to see Dawn. It was immediately obvious that there was a major difference between Dawn and all the GPs - Dawn listened to me and my symptoms, particularly when I said I always thought the lump in my neck could've been due to an accident I had 10 years ago that resulted in a bang to the head. After examining my neck, Dawn explained to me exactly what was wrong: the C2 vertebrae in my neck was out of position, causing my headaches and the shooting pains. After only 3 sessions the headaches had completely gone, and my life had completely changed. I can't explain how amazing it feels to not wake up with a headache, I wish I had visited Dawn 6 years ago and my depression surprisingly non-existent".
"I always feel better when having treatment at Park Lane Practice. It is helpful, friendly and calming. Carol and her staff will clear up sudden pain and also ongoing aches and pains. Dizzy spells and stiff muscles also respond to her treatment. Money well spent."
"Very effective treatment and friendly service. Have also used for urgent treatment with lasting results. Cannot recommend enough."
"I would certainly recommend this practice to others - and have already done so. I have received first class treatment and am very pleased with the results. Thank you."
"Marvellous treatment, professional always". C.C.
"The Park Lane Practice in Chippenham is absolutely fantastic; particularly Dawn Rowland - highly recommended!"
"I find the treatment at Park Lane is soothing. I always feel very good when I leave. Carol's treatments are v. good, firm but gentle. Also I always feel welcome at the practice". P.C
"Highly recommend Jon Muscaty (osteopath)."
"Thank you Carol my back feels great, no more pain after one treatment!" C.B
"Carol Plumridge, (Osteopathy) provides a professional and friendly service. I have experienced amazing benefits from this gentle treatment, increasing my mobility and relieving pain from arthritis. Highly recommended!
"I have found everyone at the Park Lane Practice to be very pleasant and helpful and would recommend Carol without hesitation".V.H.
"Following my recent osteopathic treatment from you for severe back pain, which I had for about three weeks, I would like to write and thank you for the excellent results. After the first visit I can't say I felt any better, but following the second visit, something just clicked in to place, and I immediately felt better and back to normal. Most notably after sitting for ten minutes I would have great difficulty getting up again. This was no longer so. Not withstanding that, within a few days I was jogging again which would have been absolutely impossible before the treatment. Alexis spent time fully analysing and diagnosing the problem, and the treatment process was without any pain. I am so grateful and would personally recommend trying this treatment to anyone. In my opinion don't waste time with doctors visits - go straight for the osteopathic treatment!"
"Alexis is simply the best" J.N.
"I had my first appointment with Alexis and was very impressed. Not only did he relieve my symptoms but he explained more about my recent surgery than the surgeon did!"
"I have always found that Carol Plumridge, (Osteopathy) has a gentle but effective way of treating my back or other bone pain. I always feel assured that she understands the source of the pain and works to heal it. The practice also offers other health services which are equally as good."
"I have been visiting my osteopath for around 10 years now and always experience great personal service and most importantly, it works! All in all, a fantastic experience." Rob P
"Have had cause to visit Jessica Wilks, (Homeopathy) over the past three years and have found each visit to have had a positive outcome. On each occasion Jess has prescribed a homeopathic remedy which for me has worked like 'magic' and I felt restored to my true self."
