What our patients say
I badly fractured my ankle in 2002 and had plates put in. I wanted to start playing football again so had the plates removed but my ankle just wasn’t right so I never kicked a ball for 6 years. When I got to 30 I decided I need to play again before it’s too late and for a few years I played and my ankle seemed fine. Then last year I sprained my ankle again but ever since I started back I’ve been in bad pain with it. I would wake up the day after a game and collapse because my ankle would just give way. I thought I was gonna have to pack up playing but then I’d heard about Jeremy and decided this was my last chance to keep playing. After the first session the flexibility in my bad ankle was non existent. Jeremy did what he did and gave me exercises to do. I can honestly say after that first session I walked out feeling like I had a new ankle. That weekend I played and the morning after my ankle was sore but nowhere near as bad as it had been. I’ve stuck to what he has told me to do and after 3 sessions the movement is almost where it should be. I no longer collapse and I feel confident that I can continue playing for a few more years now.
I can’t pay enough compliments to Jeremy for what he has achieved after only 3 sessions BUT he’s not a magician. If you don’t do the work he tells you to at home then it won’t get better. So if you have any problems go see him and do what he tells you and you will be amazed. He also helped me out with my daughter who was struggling to sleep. After 3 sessions with him she now sleeps all the way through the night.
Thank you for what you have done.

My husband and I now live in mid wales and run a caravan and camping site. We are in our early sixties and without Jeremys expertise we could not live our dream, it’s physical and active. He keeps us going and we think nothing of travelling 2 hours for treatment.

OMG- literally where do I start with Solihull Osteopathic Practise- Jeremy James has magical hands, a gift for treating people with conditions, aches, pains or injuries.Jeremy is one of the main reasons I can still walk, exercise & enjoy a better quality of life. In the 9 years of being treated-I could not positively recommend any other practise to help. Solihull osteopathic practise is such a special group of practitioners.Thank you.
Balsall Common, July 2020
Jeremy and his team are fantastic! He has worked miracles with all three of my babies over the years. After four treatments they were calm and happy and slept through the night. You can’t put a price on that! Jeremy has also successfully treated me for sciatica and shoulder pain and recommended an exercise programme for my father who suffers terribly with spinal stenosis, helping to relieve his pain and saving him from unnecessary surgery. Needless to say, I can’t recommend him highly enough!
Warwickshire, July 2020
I have attended Solihull Osteopathic Practice for a couple of years to have maintenance on my back. I started seeing Steph early 2019 and I always leave the practice feeling relief form the work she does on my back and can continue my job with some ease. She is always a good listener too, a asset to the practice!
Solihull, March 2020
I see Jeremy once a month to keep me going as I have stiffness. He and the rest of the team are always professional and courteous. I have had a lot of help and support here and wouldn’t go anywhere else for my treatment, as I know and trust the people here to give me the best care.
West Midlands, March 2020
I started having treatment from Jeremy about 25 years ago after a neck injury. I had very limited movement from side to side and stiffness. He freed it up so I could actually reverse of my drive safely!!!
I now come monthly for maintenance and I would find it difficult to manage without it. I get first class treatment in nice surroundings with a very friendly atmosphere.
Solihull, March 2020
The treatment I have received from Steph has improved my condition considerably. She has listened carefully to my problems, analysed the situation, explained what the issues are and what she will do to improve my condition. Add to this a very friendly disposition, it makes for a very pleasant experience.
Solihull, February 2020
I am a complete Osteopathy convert, I was recommended Solihull Osteopathic Practice about a year ago but as I lead an active lifestyle and I’m a regular gym goer I didn’t think it would be of benefit and the pains I suffered I had pretty much accepted as what I had to deal with.
On arrival you are greeted by the lovely receptionists I have met Donna and Fiona both of which made me feel at ease straight away and also Monty is adorable! You feel relaxed very quickly.
Well… after visiting now for 4 treatment sessions I have a new respect and understanding for my body and how it works.
I see Jeremy who is extremely skilled at pinpointing what I would term “pain epicentres” managing to understand my rambled attempts at explanations of where I feel the pain is coming from, then he is able through palpation, to find the exact trigger point. After living with knee pain since childhood, to finally understand where the pain is actually coming from (Jeremy explained a misformation of my hip) this was clarity for the first time in my life regarding this issue, of which doctors had previously misdiagnosed.
Tantamount to this I’ve received treatment by way of deep massage and manipulation for TMJ disorder and ongoing neck pain, as well as, calf and ankle treatment down to my toes!
Ask plenty of questions when you visit you get many answers as to how your individual anatomy works and advice on the effects of stress, emotions, sleep patterns and even how the way we breathe effects our daily life!
Treatment and instruction on at home daily exercises and breathing techniques has improved my overall health tremendously, I have recommended many friends and family to Solihull Osteopathic Practice, of which many have booked appointments for their complaints, I would recommend them to anyone.
I have literally been fixed head to toe!
Solihull, February 2020
I suffered with severe SPD during the course of both pregnancies. Jeremy treated me throughout my second pregnancy and managed to keep me mobile and off crutches. I would highly recommend him and his practice for anyone suffering with a similar condition. They are extremely knowledgeable and really friendly with it.
Thanks Jeremy – you have been a life saver!!!
Balsall Common, November 2019
I would always recommend Jeremy and his team, they are brilliant! Having been referred quite a while back now, I wouldn’t go anywhere else and wouldn’t want to miss the healthy dose of Jeremy’s humour and funny stories. Jeremy always fixes my ongoing back problems, gives me exercises to make sure I keep flexible and pain free between appointments and even talked me into going to yoga which is not only making a noticeable difference but I’m also enjoying.
Solihull, September 2019.
Jeremy is my miracle man, without him I really don’t believe I would be mobile. He has helped so much over several years. If ever he has to be away, I have confidence in the others who practise here.
Solihull, April 2019
I’ve been seeing Farah for nearly a year now and would definitely recommend her. I started seeing Farah during my pregnancy due to quite severe SPD and she worked miracles on me with her treatments, allowing me to have a more manageable pregnancy. I have continued to see Farah post my pregnancy and have really seen a difference in my body so far. Thank you Farah!
Solihull, March 2019
Quite simply :- My life has been transformed! I was recommended to try Solihull Osteopathic Practice as I was limping from having constant pain in my legs and back, due to a back condition.
Jeremy manipulated my movements and after just a few sessions, I am out of constant pain and discomfort.
By combining his expertise with exercises at home I have progressed beyond anything I could have hoped for.
He took a full medical history initially and has been the upmost professional, respectful and honest.
“Being a professional athlete I have to depend heavily on medical professionals who are highly trained and experienced to keep my body working at it’s very best. I depend and trust Jeremy James and Associates to do just that. Every time I leave the practice feeling better but also knowing they care. “

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.
He is BRILLIANT!”
“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”.
“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!”
“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”
“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.”
“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.”
“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.
Una McCann Lyons
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Thank you, Farah, for the soft & gentle yet powerful work you have done.
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.
Dame Caroline Spelman
A member of my family has used the practice before and was very happy with treatment.
The treatment I have received has helped an awful lot and I will definitely return for treatment in the future. Thank you for your help.
Sam is always sympathetic, listens is kind & reassuring. He always explains treatment. I would thoroughly recommend him.
Mrs M Jones
A very effective form of treatment which gave relief from debilitating back injury. Many thanks for the most efficient and caring session.
We chose this practice after looking online at great reviews. Our 18-month-old son was tight and struggling to walk but after the first session with Farah there was a dramatic change.
I’ve already recommended Solihull Osteopathic Practice to a friend and would definitely use again myself!
Two strangers recommended cranial osteopathy. I had never heard of it before. I am so glad I brought my baby to Jeremy as I had a different baby in a couple of weeks. Thank you Jeremy! I would recommend you to any parents.
