‘Andrew Jackson was recommended to me by my back doctor post op. Before you get an injury you dont really understand your body and post op you feel quite vulnerable. Andrew understands how your body works perfectly and most importantly can convey this to you in a way you can understand. His friendly nature means that you also trust him immediately. The level of detail that Andrew goes into to design a programme that is best for your needs is incredible. Add to this the comprehensive services on offer under one roof at Bowskill and you have an unrivalled service. I have already recommended friends to Andrew and will continue to do so.’

"I was referred to the Bowskill Clinic with debilitating lower back pain (I was at the time experiencing difficulty with even simple activities such as walking and getting dressed). I feel very fortunate to have ended up under the guidance of Andrew Jackson, who designed a bespoke program of exercises to encourage strength and flexibility. Under his direction -- and with excellent support from a number of Bowskill trainers -- I experienced remarkable progress. I am now again able to play squash and golf, both of which are extreme tests of the lower back. Andrew is thorough and meticulous, confident, and technically knowledgeable. And most important, he is a great listener. I have recommended Andrew and the Bowskill Clinic to a number of friends, all of whom had a similar impression."

Mr Andrew Jackson

That's great to hear! Just what we are trying to acheive as a clinic. Best wishes, Andrew

10 years of low back pain Having been diagnosed with a lower back problem 10 years ago and having experienced poor treatment and support since diagnosis, I found myself struggling with constant pain, which was affecting the way I was able to live my life. From the outset Andrew offered an alternative approach to the treatment I had received in the past. Through thorough examination, interpretation of my symptoms and referral to an excellent consultant, Andrew was able to relieve the pain and get me moving again. However, this is only part of my story, as the Practice took a long term holistic approach the to treatment of my problem, taking a longer term road to recovery and rehabilitation rather than the quick fix approach that had failed for me in the past. This approach has included a practical exercise regime, looking at my lifestyle, and monitoring my physiology, giving me the tools required to make informed lifestyle decisions. The team that I am working with, Andrew are well informed, pro-active and professional, and I hold them in very high regard. They have given me the encouragement and support that I have needed to succeed in my recovery, and I am now pain free after 10 years.

When I booked an appointment with Andrew at the Bowskill Clinic I was at my lowest ebb. I had tried everything, and if this didn't work I was contemplating surgery. I was diagnosed with two prolapsed discs in my lower back, and my back had become so hyper sensitive, normal everyday movement often sent it into spasm. I was barely coping with a full time job and was worried about my future. Andrew was so positive and I was lifted immediately because he was in no doubt that we could improve my current situation. I was provided with progressive exercise programmes specific to my needs, but more importantly everything was explained thoroughly so I could manage my pain. I am under no illusion that progress will be slow, but I have improved dramatically and feel I am getting my life back. I am looking forward rather than back, and can’t wait to start exercising again.

Mr Andrew Jackson

It's been a tough journey and one of slow, steady progress but eventually very rewarding. Andrew

'I run my own personal training company and I had suffered with my back on and off for 5 years. During which time I had been to see osteopaths, physios and sports massage therapists. None of which had accurately assessed my injuries or given me a clear structured rehab plan that I could follow for the long term. This was extremely frustrating I came to see Andrew after severely pulling my back out after training for an endurance race called tough guy. I had been training hard for it for 6 months and was devastated to pull out, it felt like my world had ended. I saw Andrew and after 4 sessions, not only did he get my back stronger & more durable, he got me back to obstacle racing where I finished 2nd in one race this year (it would have been first if I hadn't gone the wrong way!) and next year i hope to qualify for the world OCR championships Andrew has been a life saver for me. Not only has he got me back to obstacle racing but he's also taught me a lot about my back. Even though I'm a fitness professional myself , it's always good to be accountable to someone like Andrew I will continue working with Andrew for the long term Thanks Andrew for all your help.'

‘I have had a fairly common slowly deteriorating shoulder and elbow condition which was kept under control by my orthopedic consultant with yearly cortisone injections for a long time. About a year ago, however, this treatment started to become less effective and at that point he introduced me to Andrew Jackson in order to try to avoid surgery.’ ‘Having had physiotherapy many times over a very long period for this and other joint and back problems I was quite sceptical about the end result but I changed my mind almost immediately after meeting Andrew who was quite clearly extremely knowledgeable and very different in his approach . The exercise program that he has devised for me and that he constantly adjusts depending on my feedback has basically eliminated the symptoms and allowed me to continue to practice the various sports I enjoy. I could not recommend him more highly.’

Resolution of chronic tennis elbow allowed a return to competitive motor racing: I went to see Andrew Jackson because I had been suffering from tennis elbow for many months, which developed from playing tennis. I was not improving much as my hobby is Motor Racing and each time I drove in a race, I was taking a step back and the pain returned. Andrew worked hard to improve my muscle strength on my upper body and that really worked. I have spent the summer in my home in Greece playing tennis three times a week with no ill effect. I owe my improvement and recovery to Andrew Jackson. He is tops in his field.

Andrew’s assessment and subsequent exercise prescription helped me very much in relation to severe sciatica and disc bulge. He continued to review and liaise and develop my program with me when I returned to my Nigeria. I followed his exercises at least 5 -6 times a week.

Prophylactic care optimizes function and reduces risk of orthopedic issues and pain Andrew Jackson who has been my physiotherapist since many years has been following my progress and helped me to overcome my injuries ( back injury and shoulder operation ) . His overview is absolutely spot on identifying different problems and their connection to each other in the dynamic of the movements. His diagnostic is always right and he knows how to relieve the pain and give the right exercises to help to improve the range of reduced movements. His knowledge and expertise is remarkable and is innovative in his field by learning more about the state of the art techniques from specialists in Europe and in the States. Andrew is aware how lazy patients can be and therefore with very simple advice and exercise , he can bring a continuity to the treatment and therefore stabilises the improvement. Andrew is the best physiotherapist .

“I am a keen participant in circus acrobatics and dance, amongst other sports. In fact my whole identity is tied up in my ability to be able to move my body in beautiful ways; I am also someone who loves technical challenges in my disciplines and driving myself to new heights. At the beginning of 2015 I suffered a SLAP lesion level 2 in my left shoulder which required surgery. I read up about this condition and through this background reading and conversations with my surgeon it became clear that risks of stiffness to 40+ patients were increased post-surgery. I was referred to Andrew by my brother, a former international rugby player, and Loughborough-trained Sports Scientist, for rehabilitation pre and post surgery. Going to Andrew has been quite simply one of the best opportunities of my life. Andrew has worked tirelessly and creatively to ensure I very rapidly returned to full mobility in my shoulder; to the amazement of my surgeon, this was achieved only 3 months after surgery. He completely understands and empathises with my stretching physical goals, whilst providing sensible counsel on how to achieve them. He also identified postural corrections for my back that would optimise my performance in the physically demanding disciplines I enjoy in circus, and minimise load on joints. Not only that, but he is an absolute pleasure to work with and I can honestly say his approach has made rehab, which was very tough for me psychologically, an enjoyable and enlightening experience. I will continue to work with Andrew in the future as I return to my sports and strive for greater achievement. I highly recommend Andrew to anyone in need of expert physio support, and for ongoing advice to maximise their performance and approach to life.” Fiona Dent, Group Managing Director, Lifestyle, Time Inc UK, Trustee Board Member and May 2016 Fundraising Gala Chair, National Centre for Circus Arts

As a cellist who’s body is essentially the main component for earning my living and more importantly expressing myself it requires a supreme amount of trust to believe in what a physiotherapist is diagnosing,the subsequent timescales potentially involved for rehabilitation and consequent exercise plan being recommended for you to do when the unthinkable happens and you suddenly hit a wall of difficulties needing to turn to an expert for help. Andrew has proved to be truly remarkable, directional , sensitised and multilayered in his approach. He looks far beyond the superficial presentation of an issue and works through to the absolute root of the problem. He is supremely clear and linear in his explanations and has a wealth of information on many levels which has , in my own set of circumstances , encouraged me to look at rehabilitation , health and fitness in a completely different way. I feel exceptionally fortunate to have been pointed in his direction.

Andrew Jackson at the Bowskill Clinic treated me for two sports injuries: hermated disks and a torn rotator cuff. He was outstanding. His evaluations and treatment identified the problems I had and he developed personalised exercises to get me back on the field. He was very responsive to questions in between appointments. For anyone recovering from injury and hoping to get back to full strength I highly recommend Andrew.

Andrew has any exceptional and wide knowledge of the theory and practice of physiotherapy. He has a highly engaging and sympathetic personality, providing emotional support where necessary in addition to the physical aspects of treatment. He is widely read and and responsive to many complimentary therapies and approaches to provide an integrated solution to the problem of pain and injury. He helped me through a very difficult period of illness and I cannot recommend him highly enough.
