Robin Lansman was recommended to me by a skiing friend of mine who was watching me struggling with a Locked Back in Klosters. I had been to a sports doctor who, fancy on paper, prodded me, but didn’t actually tell me what to do.
Anyway, I pitched up at Maida Vale and 6 sessions later I am a lot better and my next skiing session was in a different league. Highly recommended!
I emailed Robin Lansman digital photographs of my desk at work and he has tweaked how I sit. Also my bike, which was rejected out of hand as being totally unsuitable such a good idea. As a result my back is miles better.
Body Backup really are very helpful and are highly recommended they will sort you out.
I came to Body Back-Up many years ago as a result of sporting injuries and also injuries suffered in a road traffic accident.
At the time I was seeing Robin Lansman who I found to be absolutely superb, very quick, very friendly, very helpful.
His diagnosis was instant and spot-on and the treatment he administered at that time way, way, surpassed three months of Physiotherapy that I had previously for the same ailment , with no positive effect.
Robin has treated me many times since for a variety of sports injuries and other ailments and each and every time the results have been the same. Very quick results and amazingly helpful, not only that, but he has also helped me with the preventative side in so much as each time I am treated, he doesn’t just treat the problem, he looks at the cause and advises me on how to prevent a recurrence.
I have also been treated by other people at Body Back-Up with the same results, so I had no qualms in recommending the practice, specifically Robin, to many people, all of whom speak most highly of him.
Thank you so much for all your advice and the work you did on my knee and back before the Rome half marathon on Sunday. I completed the race without stopping to walk in 1:54:57, a time I would have been aiming for if I had not been injured, and had the month before the race to train! I really think you helped me achieve this and I am thrilled. Thank you so much.
Had a long journey so far, with an injury from 2004. Spinal damage – slipped vertebrae (spondy) and torn hip ligament. Had an operation (after 3 years of chiropractic, physio and personal trainer), screws and spacer for my spine. My recovery has been progressing slowly since 2007, but grew frustrated more recently that I still cannot sit, stand or walk comfortably, let alone run.
After 3 sessions with Robin, and maintaining a regular daily schedule of the simple but effective exercises he gave me, my hip pain has greatly reduced, and I am now able to sit, stand, walk and even run comfortably.
I cannot believe the difference these three sessions have made to my mobility and comfort levels. I have known for some time that I needed to retrain muscles to support correct joint movement, but hadn’t found anyone who could help me to achieve this efficiently. Until now. So Happy.
This year I determined to run a half-marathon. I trained conscientiously, but as my distances increased so did a pain, which started out as a niggle in my ankle, until it affected my whole leg. A week before the Big Day I had to stop running altogether and so I missed my target and was bitterly disappointed.
After an enforced rest period of a few weeks I started anew with my sights on another local half-marathon, but this time, fearing a repeat of what happened before. I went to see Robin.
He soon found the cause of my problem. It wasn’t my leg, it was my back! In that first session he treated my back and taught me exercises to do at home. I even found I could touch my toes – the first time for many months. I left my appointment feeling optimistic and very pleased. The next day I started my training regime, and to my delight found that not only could I run without a twinge in my leg, but that I could go faster and further!
One more session with Robin consolidated my previous treatment and not long after that the half-marathon day arrived. I’m pleased to report that not only did I get round with no pain, but I finished having done a personal best. Thank you Robin!
I was training for the Windsor Half Marathon, and picked up an injury in my foot, which left me hobbling around work, and not able to train. It was in fact extremely painful. I visited Karen, and after one session, walked out of the surgery, started training again and completed the Half Marathon.
