I have been visiting Solihull Osteopathic Practice for more than 4 years and I have had fabulous experiences and treatment with Farah and can highly recommend her. She has helped treat a number of my ailments and helps maintain the improvements with regular visits.

Jeremy is fantastic. I’ve been seeing him for over 2 years, but felt improved and more mobile in only a fraction of this time.

I underwent brain surgery 3 years ago, and saw Jeremy after these problems. A debilitating amount of bed rest had left me with issues including inbalance, inflexibility, left sided weakness and pain.

Jeremy has helped treat me holistically and help restore me to be independent, active and in a position to manage pain effectively.

Thank you Jeremy!

“I have been seeing Jeremy for over ten years and I don’t know what I would do without him.

“I have had low back pains, sciatica and sacroiliac pain for years. The symptoms had a big impact on my quality of life and sleep. Physiotherapy had a limited effect and overall i felt very disappointed and resigned to a life of pain and limited activity.

I December 2014 I was fortunate enough to be advised by my Pilates teacher to see Jeremy. After less than 3 months treatment there has been a huge improvement in my symptoms. Jeremy’s active treatment combined with the exercises he recommended have resonated my 60’s looking far more ‘active’ than my 50’s were! I am a retired GP and Jeremy’s diagnostic skills are excellent, far better than most GP’s! Thank you!



“I have a neck alignment issues brought on by a trauma injury that I sustained many years ago. I take extra care in strengthening and caring for my neck nut occasionally I will seek some extra treatment with a professional.

Recently, I have been experiencing some mild vertigo in the morning and went to see Farah Khan at Solihull Osteopathic Practice for evaluation and treatment. My vertigo stopped after just one treatment as it was associated with my neck being out of alignment. Farah Khan was recommended to me some years ago by another trusted osteopath. I have found her treatments to be of great benefit to my physical well being and strength. I plan to continue this professional relationship in the future if a need arises as part of an ongoing health strategy

“I’ve had really bad back pain recently. Jeremy got me moving again – he was reassuring and knowledgeable with great hands on techniques. I would recommend Solihull Osteopathic Practice to anyone”.

Dave M


“I’d been having back pain for years. Now I’m much more active and feel so much better since I have been seeing Jeremy. I had a superb diagnosis, treatment and exercises to help maintain progress. There’s also a highly efficient reception team – osteopathy really works for me and Jeremy is an outstanding osteopath”.



“After damaging my right shoulder, it developed into a frozen shoulder with only 30% movement forwards and less sideways, and of very little use. Without treatment this is likely to have taken 18 months to recover. I have been having 2 sessions of treatment a week, including useful advice on hot/cold treatment and exercised to do at home. After 3 months the amount of movement started to increase, after 4 months and the arm was becoming useful again and now after 6 months I can do most things as before.”

David J Cheshire


“I chose to come to Jeremy because he understands my condition EDS. The first thing he did was get to know me, do a thorough assessment including x-rays. This gave me confidence.

He then started to work with me giving me exercises to do at home and supporting me with pain management.

I have improved 100%. I will always need help due to my condition but for the first time I am getting a team around me that are making a difference to my quality of life.Jeremy is a key member of that team.

Jeremy has the gift of being able to work in partnership with me and other professionals that work with me, I cannot recommend him highly enough. P.S. He also makes me laugh!”

Fiona Holmes


“After Nearly 20 years of back pain, with regular crises requiring heavy pain killers, I was recommended Jeremy and thank goodness! He identified the problems immediately and his analysis of the issues made total sense. After just a few sessions and diligently doing the daily exercises he set me, the transformation was extraordinary. The pain is gone, the flexibility has improved enormously and I’m confident that it will keep improving. Thank you”

Hayley Mckenzie


“I have had problems with my back, on and off for many years. Two years ago I had a flare up and was in constant nagging pain in my lower back and down one leg. I found Farah on the internet. She was able to give me an appointment in a few days and was warm, welcoming and reassuring. Although the news that it would take 6 months to completely recover was not good, it was completely accurate on all the stages of recovery Farah told me I would go through. Each appointment I had found immediate relief and improved flexibility. All the advice she gave me proved helpful. I look forward to my appointments because I have confidence in Farah’s Skills, She makes me feel relaxed and I always come out feeling better.”

Diane Taylor


“I had been suffering from a lower back problem for a number of years, which was steadily getting worse. My back would go into spasm making me drop to the floor. It would then take a couple of weeks for it to settle down and for me to be able to move around properly. It was having a negative impact on my life as I was loosing time from work, was unable to sit comfily and had virtually stopped playing golf. The episodes were happening more frequently and I was in a lot of discomfort.

I found Jeremy through research on the Internet and the first session is probably the most value for money I have had. He diagnosed the cause of my problem identifying a short hamstring in my right leg and chest problems caused by shallow breathing. The corrective work included posture advice along with the correct exercises plus gentle manipulation. The results have been amazing. I haven’t had an episode for 8 months, can sit comfortably on long trips and am back playing golf. I am sometimes aware of the weak spot but am able to do the correct stretches that prevent a full episode.

The other thing that has impressed me about Jeremy is he is genuinely interested in people and the sessions are enjoyable.

Thank you so much for getting me back on track.”

Steve Wootton


“I spotted an article promoting a new osteopath in Solihull. I’d had a particularly sore day and thought it couldn’t hurt (any more) to arrange an appointment. That was 2 months ago, and queue FANFARE – we have a winner! Patient analysis, clear explanation, a range of techniques including stretches, manipulation, massage, re-adjustments and even acupuncture (optional but very effective) followed by a clear list of exercises to help accelerate the rehabilitation. The difference is marked and impressive. I have more flexibility and more importantly much less pain, and the saving grace of more sleep.

If you suffer from a bad back, or other joint pain or discomfort, and it’s affecting your wellbeing in any way, change your routine and try some decent treatment. I whole-heartedly recommend that you give osteopathy a go and make the effort to visit Jeremy James at Solihull Osteopathic Practice. He demonstrates a genuine and serious interest in getting you fixed and gives you confidence that a positive and lasting change can be made. Not to mention a full 30 minutes of treatment per visit making it decent value for money. So head over to Solihull and get yourself a better back.”

“Having had serious SPD with my first pregnancy I began to see Jeremy early on in second pregnancy (about 14 weeks), keen to try and alleviate the pain which has already begun. I can honestly say that regular visits to Jeremy have transformed my experience of pregnancy. I fully expected the SPD to be worse with this pregnancy, as is typical, but he has been able to treat the pelvic pain and halt the onset of increased pain and discomfort. I could hardly walk without tears in my first pregnancy (from about 20 weeks) and I was tentative of all movement and activity and extremely fearful about the birth. I am now 33 weeks pregnant and able to keep active and busy and I feel far more optimistic about the weeks ahead and the birth. I have virtually no limitation of movement and although still have occasional aches and pains I no longer warrant the diagnosis of SPD! I would wholeheartedly recommend seeing Jeremy during pregnancy, who has been both understanding and insightful throughout, and feel that down to his work alone I have had a remarkably different pregnancy second time around.”

“Having suffered with lower back pain for a couple of months, I finally decided to seek professional advice/help, and contacted Jeremy. After only one treatment I felt considerably better and now, after just three treatments, am no longer in constant pain – I don’t know why I waited so long before seeing Jeremy.”

Carolyn Ingram (Mrs)


“Having been living the last decade with back pain, seeing different therapists and even having cartilage injections I had pretty much resigned myself to the fact that this was as good as things were ever likely to be. I had decided to just get on with things when someone I trusted and respected persuaded me to see Jeremy. I expected to go down the same path as the other therapists had, however Jeremy’s approach was so completely different, seeing my problem with almost x-ray vision. He understood the underlying issues and started treatment so differently to how the others had before I was keen to see where we were going. Each session he treats a different area, always aware of what he did last time. His genuine keenness to help has given me hope that there may come a time when pain is not the norm. Many thanks Jeremy.”

Jeremy has been supporting my athletes through assessment and advice on how their bodies are coping with the stresses and demands of training routines. He has an in-depth knowledge of the body’s mechanics which he uses very effectively, together with his extensive osteopathic expertise, to support each athlete in an individual manner.

Training a young developing athlete is a complex balance. Over many years, with Jeremy’s support, each athlete has experienced a vast improvement in their balance, posture and general coordination.

Thank you, Jeremy from me and my athletes.

“Jeremy has successfully treated my back and neck for the last 8 years. Last April I joyfully gave birth to fraternal twins via emergency C-section. Whilst waiting for my own appointment following the birth, I read a leaflet regarding baby cranial osteopathy. The leaflet described the symptoms and difficulties my one twin was experiencing, which was causing great stress for me and consequently frustrating for him. Having chatted with Jeremy regarding my concerns I brought T in for an initial assessment. Following the assessment, we had a course of three treatments over three consecutive weeks. In three very calm, relaxed and gentle treatments, T was almost oblivious whilst he played with his toys. He was a totally different baby and was so much happier and content, I was truly amazed and incredibly grateful to Jeremy. T continues to go from strength to strengths in his developments.

The baby cranial osteopathy was a real turning point for us during a very difficult and worrying time. I certainly highly recommend this type of treatment.”

I chose Solihull Osteopathic Practice on a referral from a work colleague over 2 years ago. Farah has done and continues to do wonders for my back.  I have no regrets in choosing Solihull Osteopathic Practice & easily recommend to friends. Farah is a joy to be around and very conscientious.

I was recommended to the practice and have been treated by Farah for hip and neck pain.  She has helped me greatly and is very knowledgeable and friendly.  I recommend the practice to family and friends regularly.

Rachel Beesley

My friend recommended Farah after suffering from lower back pain.  Since having sessions with Farah I have gained so much more movement in my back and feel like the pain is finally going.  I would definitely recommend Farah to my friends and family.

Maria Pegg


Since coming to the practice and seeing Farah for my monthly MOT I feel a better person in myself.  Farah is very professional and a lovely person to talk to.

Roger Evans


I come to see Farah as she was recommended, I came as I was suffering lower back pain.  I have had weekly / fortnightly treatments and along with general stretching exercises the treatments are really helping.  Farah is very good and clearly explains everything she is doing.

Gail Hadley


I’ve been going to see Jeremy for a few years now and I can honestly say I wouldn’t go to anyone else.  I’ve been experiencing back problems for a few years and Jeremy always sorts my back out even after only 1 session, I would highly recommend Jeremy.

Fiona Coffey


As soon as I met Jenny I was at ease. She took a detailed history checking back with me she had correct details. She completed a thorough examination and explained the nature of my pain and how she would like to progress with my treatment.  Each time she checks with me for progress and if I’m comfortable throughout “hands on” treatment.  I have every confidence in her ability, she’s very experienced, has a gentle supportive manner and I felt the benefits immediately. 

J Rymond


Thank you, Farah, for the soft & gentle yet powerful work you have done.

Faye Hopkins


Deciding to come to an osteopath was the best decision I ever made.  Visits to the doctor just kept recommending pain killers and it was great to find an approach that helped me get better rather than masking the problem.  I have recommended Farah to others and they too have been impressed.

J A Showell


Having a stressful job, I really appreciate being pulled back into shape, so I can keep on giving my best to my public duties.
