Dr. Bian (Dr & Herbs)

Spindles Shopping Center, Unit 22, Oldham OL1 1HD, UK – 0161 628 9888

My mother suffers from sciatica in her leg, severe migraines and empty sella syndrome in the head. She has tried various different types of medication. Nothing has worked until we discovered Dr & Herbs Oldham. The doctor recommended acupuncture and my mother has been receiving this treatment and wow the results are amazing. Most of the pain she has suffered for many years has finally gone thanks to Dr & Herbs. Her health is so much better and she could not thank Dr & Herbs enough. We would highly recommend to try acupuncture for any form of pain. All natural and herbal. Customer service is also fantastic. You will be looked after!

Dr. Bian has been treating me for Asthma, and this year has been VERY bad for asthma what with record pollen levels and the smoke from a burning Saddleworth Moor. The treatments with acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine have been singularly effective and have enabled me to live a more or less normal life rather than being housebound. As well as being superbly competant Dr. Bian is personalble and sypatheric without being intrusive. His receptionist is friendly, efficient and personable also. Altogether recommended.

Sports Physio UK (Oldham)

41B Market St, Shaw, Oldham OL2 8NR, UK – 01706 842996

I saw Scott this morning, he referred me to Alan as with Scott's own diagnosis of my condition he thought that Alan was the physio to see. I saw Alan an hour later who very quickly diagnosed my problem. I have suffered with pain in my right leg from top to bottom for about 6 weeks and haven't been able to walk or stand properly. Pain killers had no effect. Alan explained what had happened and why I was having problems and loosened up the trapped nerves in my lower spine. He gave me some exercises to do and suggested better pain relief to get from my doctor. I see him again next week and he said I should be fine in approx 5 to 6 weeks time. I would like to thank both Scott and Alan for their prompt, efficient and excellent service. I did have an appointment with the NHS physio which was weeks away and I couldn't go on any longer with the pain. Just wish I'd gone privately sooner. Would thoroughly recommend this practice.

I've known Scott, Rick and Lucy for a while and always heard brilliant things about this place. I recently started running and developed sever hip pain during and after even short runs. My first call was to SPUK and was booked in with Alan who instantly spotted errors in my posture and form. The treatment and advice was perfect. I can now run run without pain even entered my first triathlon. I honestly thought that I'd need surgery or give up training. Booking is easy, both online and over the phone. I get a text and email, and can rearrange easily if I need to. Nothing is too much trouble for the team.
