I recently had a fantastic experience with Melissa at MDOsteo. As someone who has struggled with chronic back pain for years, I have seen numerous specialists and therapists, but Melissa’s approach worked wonders on me. She was highly informative in helping me understand the issues i was having and also takes the time to listen. Booking an appointment was easy, and I appreciated the flexibility in scheduling. Overall, I highly recommend Melissa and MDOsteo to anyone in the Wallington area looking for treatment for their musculoskeletal issues.

Melissa was great. I first contacted her as an emergency with a lower back problem and she was able to see me at very short notice. Melissa quickly diagnosed the problem and provided a clear idea of my recovery plan and likely timescales. Session by session my back improved, and true to her original estimate, was totally resolved after a few sessions. I'd highly recommend Melissa, and will definitely be calling her again if I have any future issues. Thank you for fixing me!!

I went to Mellisa with a ruptured Plantar Fascia and could not put my foot down on the floor. Within 3 weeks of shock therapy, i was able to move around pretty well, and within 4 weeks, was walking again. I highly recommend Mellisa, for her professional and friendly attitude.

I have been seeing Melissa for around six months now and can honestly say I have never been so comfortable. I have a long standing issue with my lower back which Melissa was able to treat and we now maintain my posture and alignment meaning for the first time ever I am pain free. Melissa is professional, practical, patient and thorough in her practice and I would highly recommend her services to everyone.

Melissa is amazing, she makes you feel relaxed and is so easy to chat to. Melissa has worked on my Plantar Fasciitis and recently on my son who plays rugby, she has worked miracles including last minute appointments to fix my son after a rugby injury. My son goes regularly and always leaves feeling great. We would highly recommend Melissa.

Amazing osteopath! Melissa is attentive to your needs and provides the best service 🙂 I found her locally after suffering from muscle aches from Long COVID and she squeezed me in for our first appointment and I've improved significantly since! She is thorough in her investigations to help heal your ailments and I've never felt rushed at all!

Melissa is an incredibly thorough and professional osteopath. She examines your body as a whole and is able to make a wide-range of recommendations, such as orthotic treatments, which she also offers. Communication is always great and she tries her hardest to fit you in - even Sundays! Have highly recommended her to family and friends and certainly one of the best around in the area (having tried many of them!)

Careful and considerate skeletal manipulation due to pts condition and existing problems. I have been seeing Melissa for several months due to back and hip problems, I am now walking more upright, climbing stairs at a much faster rate, and managing to keep up with hubby on our walks. All in all great service and even have a minute for a giggle!!
