I have been coming to see Robin for a year now, having been in absolute agony, and not being able to run for about 3 months.
Within 3 months I was running again and he recommended some insoles to put in my trainers and I have always got through a pair of trainers every 6 months at £120 for a pair of trainers is rather expensive and since I have had these insoles – which I put them in January in a new pair of trainers and I haven’t had to replace them thus far and I don’t think I will be for at least a few months.
The insoles have been absolutely amazing – I have gone 9 months without any back pain whatsoever, so I would recommend them highly.
I visited your clinic in 2001 and had some very successful treatment on a back problem caused mostly by fallen arches. You sold me some insoles (skiing) for £30 ish which I thought were expensive at the time but you said they would outlast my shoes. Yeah, right I thought.
11 years later they have just about worn through! That’s with daily use! Outlasting several pairs of shoes and trainers.
So, I am back for more! Just about to buy a pair for myself and for my 11 year old son (who wasn’t even born when I bought my first insoles!)
Seriously – many thanks for what you did at the time. I have not had many re-occurrences of the problem since and those that I do have are caused by me not following your stretching exercises properly.
