What Our Patients Said

Ellerslie Osteopaths and especially Chris Burnett has always been my place to go when I have had injuries from my work or recreational pursuits. Bad muscle spasms especially have been relieved in the first visit and if they have been really bad by the second or third visit . My elderly parents have also attended the clinic and they always appreciate Chris’s pleasant manner and professionalism.
Ive been to see both Chris and Ryan and have always had great results, sometimes injuries can take time to heal, but the pain threshold either disappears or is greatly reduced after each visit. They are both very gentle in their approach and I think are very talented Osteopaths. I know other people who have been to either of them and also think they are very good and would always go back, if needed. I would highly recommend these guys.
I first went to see Ryan 3 years ago when I pulled a muscle in my shoulder, and have been visiting him since then when I have any discomfort - he even recently helped out with a sore jaw due to stress. He always provides clear explanations for the treatment he recommends and undertakes it in a caring manner. I highly recommend Ryan if you're needing a great Osteopath!!!
I would like to thank Ryan for his wonderful services. My back pain is completely gone in 6 treatments and I feel much better now. I really appreciate for all your support and can say in my experience if you ever suffer from pain please go and see Ryan. He is the best of best. Again, thanks!
