I went to see Ivan due to constant pain in my hips and lower back. I was virtually struggling to walk. Ivan did an initial assessment and then talked me through my treatment. I was initially sceptical as I thought he was not going to be able to help me. 2 months later my pain has subsided and I am eternally grateful for the specialised support he has offered me. He is a fantastic individual with lots of qualities that he has brought to Ashlins. I say Long Live Ivan !!!! Maureen
