The best part of my job is to see my patients get better and go back to their normal lives. I recently had a patient with severe sciatic pain who was referred to me by word of mouth. When George called me for first time I wasn’t even able to see him as I was so busy between London and Newcastle, but arranged to get myself to Newcastle to see him as he was desperate for some help. Any way, six sessions on, this is what he has got to say:
I write to confirm the vast improvement in my condition after sessions of treatment from yourself, and let everyone know of the benefits of your treatment.
Back in March at 57 years old, I developed severe pain diagnosed as Sciatica, I had been off work for 6 weeks and 3 weeks after returning to work, it reoccurred meanwhile I was receiving prescribed medicine from the Doctor, Chiropractic Treatments and a 3 month period of Phshyo at the local hospital.
At this stage I was on:
- Tramadol Hydrochloride 50mg 4x 2 per/day
- Lyrica 75 mg Pregabaline 3×1 /day
- Celebrex 200mg Celecoxib 200mg 1 per/day
These symptoms were later confirmed by a MRI Scan.
The level and threshold of pain was 100% at my first visit to the “Seena Clinic” in July 2010.
The treatments progressed and i took the advice after “Spinal Touch” from Fatemeh.
A noticeable improvement in the threshold of pain occurred and my quality of life improved drastically to the point I am returning to work next Monday after recent treatments.
I have taken no prescribed medication for 6 weeks now, not even a paracetamol or Ibobrofen.
I have purchased Fatemehs Exercise Video to be my Maintenance Tool and with this I hope to fly through my next MOT Test.
Recommend to anyone.

The best part of my job is seeing the amazing individuals that I work with walk out of my clinic different people than when they came in. I thought that I would share this lovely email that I’ve just received from one such person:
Hello everybody, my name is Mrs Madge Cowen and I am 71 years old. It all started a few months ago, when my both knees and both hips started to go 100 times worse than they have ever been. The pain was so bad, I couldn’t tolerate, even though I was used to the pain, having them for years! I could hardly sleep, and was in so much pain and agony in the morning, I couldn’t get out of bed.
I visited my GP again and was referred to a Orthopeadic Consultant in the local hospital, where I was told that both my knees are probably bad enough to undergo total knee replacement, but weren’t sure whether my hips were giving me the excruciating pain and agony as they were also badly degenerating. The pain in my knees were so bad that the doctors decided to start with my knees first, and go back to my hips in a later day, so I was put in a waiting list, for my left knee to be done first.
In the meantime, I decided to give the exercises a go, as Fatemeh had always wanted me to do, and I didn’t do. I know Fatemeh as a good friend and therapist, as she has been looking after my back for the last few years. It’s not that I didn’t believe in exercises, but the pain was so much I couldn’t even climb the stairs to the gym on the first floor. Anyway, I did it. I started my especially designed exercise programme and practiced them almost everyday. Within a week, I could see the differnece in going up the stairs, getting off the bed and so on. I was taking less painkillers and were much more mobile, to the point that when I was admited to the hospital for my first knee operation, my hips were fine, and that helped my recovery so much, I was up and about post operation in no time.
I totally recovered from my left knee operation and although I feel some pain and stiffness in my hips, I know for sure its because I haven’t been doing my exercises lately. I can certainly say that if things stay the same way as they are now, with the help of exercises, I might never do my other knee or my hips, which is great news for me and also for the National Health Service.
