In my first consultation with Carry, it felt like my last hope after years of battling with lower back pain. I’d tried chiropractors, physio, acupuncture, sports massage, yoga, pilates and stretching. Whilst all brought some form of short term relief, my back pain appeared to be getting worse and was starting to restrict my day to day activities and make sitting at a desk all day difficult. I was impressed by Carry’s holistic approach and through a combination of techniques and advice on improving my strength/restoring function, she was able to get me back to an active and pain free lifestyle. Low back pain was something I thought about every day from the moment I woke up in the morning, but now it’s a minor ailment that crops up every now and then (and I have the tools to manage).More recently, I went to see Carry after being referred by a my GP with muscular headaches. Carry was keen to understand both the physical symptoms as well as any recent stress I was experiencing in my life. Again, I was back on track after some manipulation and prescribed exercises to get movement back in my spine. Now i’m running and back lifting weights in the gym. Carry is clearly very knowledgeable and enthusiastic about her work, yet has an ability to explain why your symptoms could be happening in a way that’s simple to understand. The advice she provides is practical and I cannot recommend her enough to anyone who is experiencing back pain.read more

I had a few appointments with Carry Triggs Hodge, the osteopath at the clinic, when my back and neck were very tense and painful. She uses a very holistic approach incorporating breathing and physical exercises as well as manipulation and was very helpful and lovely.

I met Carry after 1 month I was experiencing severe back pain.She has been really helpful and supportive and I saw improvements after just the first appointment. Her approach is to treat the whole person, rather than just the symptoms. I am still following her comments and suggestions as they are really beneficial for both my body and my mind!read more

Carry is a rock solid clinician. With just two appointments, she was able to help me eliminate lower back pain that had lasted at least a year while also allowing me to then double the distance that I drive (the thing that had previously caused the pain). I will definitely go back to her if I struggle with back pain in future. I will always be indebted to her.read more

Carry has been amazing in treating my occasional rowing injuries in a way that both addressed the pain I was having, and supported me in continuing my training and racing program, most recently preparing me for a successful race at Pairs Head when I pulled my back a week out and definitely thought I would have to scratch.read more

This is the second time that Carry has helped me with just one treatment! Following some stressful events in my life and lack of sleep, one morning I woke up with an aching shoulder. The pain went all the way down to my right arm and fingers. After a week of using painkillers on and off I decided to seek Carry’s help again, remembering she once sorted out a similar problem. I am so glad I went to see her. Not only did she examine me properly and gave me some exercises to do at home, she really took her time to talk to me and to get to the bottom of the problem. I thought it was a trapped nerve but Carry explained to me that this is rarely the case. Most likely my muscle had tensed up and this could have happened due to stress. She asked me loads of questions and gave me really good tips and advice how to minimise the pressures in my life and recommended me meditation to help me to relax. I loved the fact that she was enquiring not just after my body but also my mental health and I felt very comfortable talking to her – she is a very good listener, has a kind and trustworthy manner and seemed to be very understanding. AND it worked again! In the evening I had a tingling sensation in my fingers, the following day the pain was worse (and I nearly started to despair) but from then on (I obviously did my exercises dutifully), my shoulder got better and better until the pain was gone completely. I cannot recommend her highly enough! And I am also grateful that she introduced me to mindfulness…read more

I went to see Carry when I was pregnant with my daughter and struggling with constant migraines and neck pain. She was absolutely amazing and her straight forward and honest approach was really refreshing after being told by doctors that I would just have to put up with the pain until I gave birth. I recommend her to everyone I know!read more

I saw Carry after 6 months of extreme neck and shoulder pain, during which I saw 4 other physios and an osteo consultant, none of whom were able to make any helpful difference. In just 1 session, Carry completely changed the way I thought about my condition, and gave logical and transformative advice. After 2 sessions I was on the road to recovery and planning a snowboarding holiday. Something I couldn't possibly have considered just a fortnight earlier. I highly recommend Carry if you need physiotherapy support. She's fantastic.read more

I turned up at Carry in October for an emergency appointment after I experienced such severe neck and back pain that I couldn’t sleep, sit or lie down. Her approach is remarkable and life changing for anyone with pain. Within days I was feeling so much better and have had virtually no pain since. Her goal is long term, pain free movement and that is so refreshingly different to other specialists in this area. I recommend her to everyone I know.read more

I started to see Carry after having problems with my back post delivery. After seeing a neurosurgeon and having a few MRI scans (which showed nothing), my physiotherapist recommended her after no change in my back pain (that came on during the morning hours) after ten or so sessions. Carry had quite a different approach where we actually spent the majority of the time together talking (I had three sessions). I felt that she really listened to my concerns, my worry and let me describe my problems in detail. We talked a lot about what pain is, how to manage it and why pain occurs. Understanding how the nervous system works and why my system went into 'high alert' helped me understand my pain and also accept it. Once I was no longer scared of the pain, I felt that it was much easier to deal with especially with the strategies that Carry taught me. After understanding how to break the cycle of pain my level of anxiousness was reduced and so was the pain. I'm now able to sleep through the night. I do recommend anyone with unexplained pain to see Carry as for me it was the only thing that helped!read more

Carry has an approach that is quite different to any previous treatment I have received and I am very pleased to say it is one that has worked really well for me. My long standing ailment now feels very much under-control - something for which I am very thankful. If you are struggling with an injury, I highly recommend Carry and suggest you get in touch.read more

Carry's holistic approach to physical care and her professionalism provided me with the help I desperately needed after hurting my back few weeks ago. Not only did she physically help with the pain she also explained to me in details the way our body expresses and deals with pain, which was an eye-opening experience. I highly recommend her and her clinic.read more

Working with Carry to heal my back pain has been a really refreshing experience. Having paid for endless weekly sessions with other practitioners, I was delighted to find that Carry offers a solution focused treatment approach. She really drilled down into the problem from the get go, and after only two sessions (and some homework!) I was already feeling extreme relief. And two more sessions later I can honestly say the pain has gone. Carry is full of energy and is passionate about practical healing solutions. I would recommend her highly to anyone looking for long term benefits. Be prepared to do your homework!read more

Carry Hodge has been really helpful and supportive. She is thorough and creative, and takes time to treat the whole person, rather than just the symptoms. I continue to find her comments and suggestions beneficial, one year on. If you're looking for a proactive and intelligent therapist to help you find practical ways to work with your body, then don't hesitate to consult Carry.read more

I saw Carry due to long standing problems with my back that were being exacerbated by sport (rowing). She took a holistic approach to identify and treat the source(s) of my issues and also advised how I can help myself both when practising sport and with additional exercises to do in my own time to support and strengthen my back in day to day life. I have since been able to progress with my rowing and am largely pain free. I can recommend CTH Healthcare without hesitation.read more

Lasting Results

Treatment is collaborative, strategic and multifactorial: a 360 degree approach involving in depth whole-body biomechanics (human movement and function), addressing behaviour, motivation, and education, combined with hands on methods. It’s individualised process based on your needs and goals.

Designed to resolve symptoms and facilitate lasting change, it is powerful in finding root causes and maintaining factors of musculo-skeletal issues.

It is 10 times more powerful when you understand what we are doing and why, and that your actions are an important component of finding sustainable body health. This is critical in resolving chronic problems and avoiding old-age disability.

I use the principles of movement and biomechanics to look at how the body functions, to find out where it is struggling and how that is causing pain. Analysing how the body responds to gravity, mass and momentum (for example, while walking, running, jumping, or in any activity you might perform which provokes symptoms, even if that’s sitting at your desk or making a cup of tea) provides a wealth of information and helps us create powerful strategies to get you out of trouble, so that you can live pain free and understand how to maintain that yourself through bespoke strategies and exercises, which you can use afterwards and into the future if necessary.

I also work with a fantastic network of healthcare experts to ensure you are getting the right specialist help, this includes surgeons, sports medicine doctors, health coaches, nutritionists, podiatrists, yoga therapists and pilates instructors.
