My wife first saw Teresa in October 2018 after suffering from chronic back neck and shoulder pain for a year which began soon after the birth of her third child leaving her unable to live a normal functioning life and pick her children up. My wife had seen multiple masseuses , multiple physiotherapist’s, multiple chiropractors and multiple GP’s about her condition without a clear or correct diagnosis.
On the very first visit to Teresa at The Osteopaths she was the only person to correctly identify the problem which my wife has been suffering from, which was a hypermobile SI joint resulting in severe postural changes and muscles spasm. Dani (my wife) has been seeing Teresa once a week ever since, helping her manage her symptoms and put her on the road to recovery. Not only helping Dani physically she has helped her mentally, the standard of Teresa’s work in my professional opinion is outstanding, she really understands the human body and what sets her miles above anyone in her field is the fact she genuinely care’s for her patients.
Relocating for work we have moved to England And my wife still flies to Glasgow to be treated by Teresa , I highly recommend Teresa and can’t thank her enough for her work.

Teresa pointed me in the right direction to finally get a diagnosis from my GP. I had undiagnosed fibromyalgia for 26 years, sometimes walked with a stick and lived on painkillers. On my first visit, many years ago, Teresa set me on the path to recovery by explaining that although I had pain, my joints were ok. I pushed the GP for more tests.
Once I had a name for my condition I was off and running- literally- and started to treat myself. I now visit intermittently for acupuncture and manipulation if my back seizes up and I have recommended THE OSTEOPATHS to many people who also received amazing treatment too. Cannot speak too highly of Teresa. Keep up the good work.Fiona Murphy
I’ve been unfortunate to have been in a couple of car accidents which have caused neck problems. I had treatment each time, but have been left with a legacy of ongoing stiffness and constriction. I came to see Teresa for upper back pain a few years ago. As a larger woman, with a bust to match, this was expected. But she found I also had a tendency for lax ligaments, which causes minor, ongoing discomfort. In particular, a rib on the right side doesn’t like staying where it should. So I go to get that sorted, and to get ‘cracked’ (as I affectionately call it!). Realigned. It works. It relieves discomfort and loosens my posture up.
To compliment the osteopathy, I also use the massage services available. If you go regularly, the therapist really gets to know your body – apart from a massage always feeling like a ‘treat’, we can focus on particular strains or tension I have at each visit, so it is thoroughly bespoke. With the ligament issue I have, I suffer regular strains and pulls so really benefit from flexible, monthly treatment. I see the whole package as a necessity, self-care that’s worth the investment.Ann, Kilbarchan
