Patient Comments

Read what our patients say about us

“After enduring years of lower back ‘niggling discomfort, periodic pain and stiffness’, I decided to consult Mr Arkle for a diagnosis for the sake of work and my enjoyment of walking and landscape photography, especially with my two young children. Following the initial consultation, understanding of the problem and the recommended course of treatment, my back issues greatly reduced. Now, after 2–3 years of continuing single sessions every 3 months, I enjoy a life relatively free of back ‘niggles, pain and stiffness’ and can savour the long walks and family time. My only regret is not consulting Mr. Arkle at least 5 years earlier!!”
Mr D Osborne, Bovey Tracey (9 May 2019)
“I have attended Joseph Arkle’s clinic many times and have on all occasions been treated with gentleness and courtesy. All my treatments have resulted in success. Joseph will always be my first choice for any treatment I may need in the future. I recommend him most highly.”
Mrs Pat Savage Jones, Hennock (8 May 2019)
“I had suffered with a pain in my shoulders for about 6 months before I contacted Bovey Tracey Chiropractic Clinic. I could only turn my head 65 degrees in both directions, I was struggling to get a full night’s sleep. The treatment I received from Joe was amazing and after 5 sessions I can now turn my head over 90 degrees, I have strength in my arms and I can enjoy my life again. Thank you Joe for working wonders.”
Mrs Sylvia Edwards, Teign Village (1 May 2019)
“I hurt my back lifting our baby out of the car. After a night spent in absolute agony during which I couldn’t sit, stand or lie down (let alone hold my baby) I had a home visit from Joe Arkle and the results were immediate. A short course of treatment and I am now fully recovered. Joe is extremely polite and professional, he is clearly an expert in his field. Together with the treatment I received he also offered advice for steps to take in between visits. I couldn’t recommend Joe highly enough and I certainly wouldn’t hesitate to visit Joe again should I need further treatment.”
Mrs Julie Dark, Bovey Tracey (3 April 2019)
“When a long term shoulder injury became progressively more painful, I went to Joseph Arkle’s Clinic. He was very thorough, very gentle and very effective. He has made my shoulder much better now and I still choose to visit him every few months and have felt such a great improvement in my flexibility and relief from pain that I can honestly recommend him.”
Mrs V. Kidner, Manaton (13 March 2019)
“I advocate Joe Arkle’s clinic. Following a horse riding accident a few years ago, I now attend his clinic for help in pain management to ameliorate my chronic back pain symptoms. I find him to be an active listener and he has tailored my clinic sessions to help me manage my condition.”
J.H., Bovey Tracey (12 March 2019)
“When I first visited I had an injury to my foot which I had had for 6 years. This meant that I often had pain after driving or when walking which limited my abilities to take part in exercise. I had already tried Bowen technique and acupuncture. Within 4 months my foot is nearly perfect (just the odd passing ache). I am now taking part in Pilates class and walking faster and for longer. I no longer have pain after driving. I’ve also bought a pair of trainers so I can do more exercise. I am amazed at the speed of recovery after such a long period in pain.”
M.W., Chudleigh (3 February 2018)
“Joseph is one of the very best chiropractors I’ve ever had – and I’ve had many, in London and the USA. Hes thorough, meticulous and exact. He diagnoses with care and attention, and his adjustments are precise and effective. I feel very lucky to have found him so close to home!.”
L.F., Hennock (22 Aug 2017)
“After two to three weeks of increasing stiffness and pain in my lower back due to a fall indoors I contacted Mr Joe Arkle, and am pleased and relieved to say that after four consecutive treatments I am back to pre–fall condition – which is a relief at 92 years of age.”
Mr Boon, Bovey Tracey (25th April 2017)
“I had severe pain in the lower part of my back, and could only sit on the right side of a chair. Getting into the driver’s seat and driving was dire. I was recommended by a friend to go and “see Joe” at the Bovey Tracey Chiropractic Clinic. In a pleasant and relaxed atmosphere, he diagnosed my problem and now after just 5 sessions I have no pain. Now I am going to have maintenance sessions to manage my spine in the future.”
Mrs M.B., Bovey Tracey (25th April 2017)
“I had suffered severe incapacitating lower back pain before coming to Bovey Tracey Chiropractic Clinic. Because of complicating factors Joe speedily arranged for an xray before commencing work. After only 3 sessions may back improved dramatically. I know that I can always go back if I have further problems. Joe is very thorough and professional and I feel confident in his hands. Thank you Joe.”
Mr John Taylor, Chagford (11th April 2017)
“I have found my experience and treatment at Bovey Tracey Chiropractic Clinic very beneficial. I had neglected a neck injury for over two years, sustained in a car accident and it was getting progressively more painful. I had stiffness and pain, found it difficult to turn my head and it was affecting my day to day activities and sleeping. Joseph diagnosed the problem and we started on a course of treatment initially intensive requiring appointments closer together which stretched out as the condition improved. The benefits of the treatment received have been amazing, enabling me to sleep better and enjoy activities such as walking, working, driving etc. without pain and discomfort. At all times I was consulted throughout the treatment; there was no ‘hard sell’ and pressure. I have felt very comfortable enjoying a warm and friendly welcome and experience..”
Mrs J.T., Manaton (23rd March 2017)
“Having suffered many years of increasing pain and discomfort from a neck/shoulder injury, I was recommended to try the Bovey Tracey Chiropractic Clinic. After just one visit I had considerable relief, and the improvement continued with every treatment. Now all the pain has gone and my mobility is almost 100%. Thankyou. I would recommend the clinic to anyone!”
Ms Griffiths, Chagford (20th March 2017)
“I came to the clinic with lower back pain that had been affecting my day to day life, as well as my current job for many years. After the initial consultation, it was explained to me the reasons behind the problems I was having. I was given a clear plan of how to move forward with my treatment. I stuck to exactly what was recommended for me in terms of the amount of treatment required and began to notice results almost immediately with my back gradually improving week on week. Some 12 months on I am 100% pain free and able to do all the things I was unable to do before. I would recommend the clinic highly to anyone and cannot rate the service I have received highly enough.”
Mr Kelsey, Ipplepen (20th March 2017)
“Having not used a chiropractor before, I was sceptical! However, the pain I was experiencing last year was immeasurable. The subsequent treatment resulted in a speedy recovery and the periodic check–ups have ensured a pain free back, allowing me to continue with my very active lifestyle.”
Miss Tamson Russell, Hennock (20th March 2017)
