Two years ago I hurt my shoulder and ended up with a frozen shoulder. I went to see a physiotherapist to receive treatment as I was in a lot of pain. Being impatient I asked how long it would take to fix, really just wanting to know how long I had to put up with the pain. I was told it could take up to three months. After three months I was still receiving treatment and told that it could take up to 12 months to heal. I also had a cortisone injection for the pain. I had one good night’s sleep as a result. After eight months visiting on roughly a fortnightly basis, I stopped going. About 14months later I noticed my shoulder was no longer painful.
Six months ago I was having pain in my left shoulder and thought, pain for another twelve months and I will be good. I went to see Rob Rich who was recommended by a friend. This shoulder has been painful for six months. The first session with Rob, I came away very relaxed, and my shoulder seemed a little better. The treatment is very non-invasive and you wonder if anything is actually happening. I came home very tired. I slept that night for 12 hours, which is unheard of for me! The pain was still there but it was a different pain. I saw Rob a week later, and came away much improved. Before I saw Rob I could not lift my arm up past my shoulder, two sessions later and I can! It has been a week since the last session and this morning I woke up and realised my shoulder had not caused me pain all night! I actually stretched! Rob also gave me some magnesium spray which is fantastic. If you are a cynic I suggest you see Rob, try OB, as you have nothing to lose and everything to gain, I for one, thoroughly recommend it.

I pulled my rotator cuff in December 2013 and have been seeing the physio for 2 months every week with no real results. My ROM was very limited and had a lot of pain. After the first treatment with Rob I had half my range of motion back and after the second I was doing full push ups again. Thank you so much for giving me my shoulder back.

Approximately 16 years ago I received an injury to my right shoulder from an awkward landing playing touch football. I was immediately referred to a physiotherapist for treatment which lasted several months, on and off with little improvement. As I rely on my shoulder heavily to carry out my job as a carpenter, I was advised the only real solution to the pain and discomfort was surgery. This was not an option in my eyes. So I learnt to live and deal with it for 15 long years. The last 12 months prior to receiving treatment from Rob was almost unbearable. Even to sleep on my shoulder for more than 15 minutes would cause excruciating pain and freezing up of the shoulder joint.
Upon receiving my first one hour treatment from Rob, I noticed a massive difference in pain, discomfort and range of movement – almost a numbing, buzzing feeling had taken over my shoulder. With two more sessions and some simple exercise the pain had reduced from a constant 7/10 to zero pain within a few weeks.
It has now been around 10 months since receiving treatment from Rob and my shoulder has still zero pain. It truly is an amazing, gentle, relaxing treatment that Rob practices and I have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone.
He has truly changed my life. Thanks Rob.

This letter is to confirm that Mr Rich has been treating a patient of mine who was experiencing severe disabling pain from degenerative spinal and facet joint disease. She was managing poorly with multiple analgesic medications. She had attended physiotherapy with little improvement. She had three sessions of treatment with Mr Rich.
On review today she is remarkably improved. She is generally pain free. She does not require any analgesic medication and her mobility has improved.
On the basis of her history and examination today I would certainly feel that Mr Rich’s treatment has been significantly beneficial to her health and well being. I would certainly recommend his treatment to other patients with similar problems.
