What Julia's patients say:

"I can't express my gratitude to Julia and the Bristol Back Pain Clinic enough. The acute pain I was in last year left me extremely emotional and I was struggling to walk. Julia always met me with so much tenderness and we worked with a goal of me being able to walk and stand without so much pain for my wedding. Not only did I walk, but I danced! It involved a lot of work outside of appointments also, but without the confidence and pep talks in the sessions, I would have been far more terrified to push myself. Thank you so so much for everything, I can't recommend enough if you have back pain."
