Patrick Pearce is the 'Dr. Gregory House' of the osteopathic world. He works with the efficiency of an extremely experienced and educated professional and I am thankful to him and Terry Fowler (sports therapist) for their help with my back.
I had been suffering from really bad back pain for a week. I was certificated sick and was struggling to put my socks on the pain was so bad.. One visit to the Osteopathic Centre worked miracles, with nearly all my back pain gone. Louise is very easy to deal with and I found the treatment first class. I still cannot believe what a difference this made. I don't normally write reviews so you can see how impressed I was with the treatment I received.
Both my husband and I are delighted with Patrick's treatment and advice. He is extremely knowledgeable and professional as well as being a very personable man. We have both benefitted enormously from his expertise. We thoroughly recommend him to anyone looking for the best osteopath in the area!
The Osteopathic Centre is well located in a quiet part of Welwyn Garden City. Patrick is very knowledgeable, identifying painful problem areas in the body that are verified by scans and medical records. Patrick has gentle, gifted hands that alleviate pain and recommends simple yet effective exercises to strengthen muscles and provide further relief. His friendly and professional manner puts you at ease and the cost is definitely worth the service you receive. With herniated discs in the neck and weakened muscles in the leg, Patrick's treatment and advice has allowed me to resume my life.
Patrick is creative and very observant and solved a long-standing leg problem which no one else was able to, I have now been able to run, injury-free for over a year which has not happened for many, many years, he and Louise have "fixed" other arm and neck niggles for me - I cannot recommend them more highly!

Patrick Pearce is probably the best osteopath I've ever been treated by. Fantastic work, I would highly recommend him to anyone.
A friendly and caring practice. I have had several back emergencies in the last few years and Patrick has always made time to see me and then work patiently with me until I am fixed again. Patrick is passionate about his work, fixing everything over the years. I cannot recommend him highly enough. 5 stars from me
I've been a client Pof the Osteopathic Centre & Patrick's for the last 4 years for varying breast cancer & surgery related side effects....he is always highly professional in his treatment & manner & most importantly, his treatment & advice work. I would have no hesitation & indeed have reccomended him, to numerous friends & relatives. I now class Patrick as a friend as well as my Osteopath.
I've been going to The Osteopathic Centre for a few years now after a friend recommend Patrick to me for my bad back.
From day one his professional and extremely polite attitude has been first rate. He’s extremely knowledgeable and provides help and advice which helps assist and alleviate my chronic back pain.
Without any hesitation I would recommend Patrick to anyone. Not only do I see Patrick, but my mum & dad and my wife.

The Osteopathic Centre is a highly professional osteo practice giving excellent treatment and advice.
I have been using the Osteopathic Centre for quite a while now and their service has always been first class. With any injury you always fear the worst but they seem to allay any fears witha clear and understandable diagnosis of what is wrong. The treatment they give along with exercises for you to do to aiid recovery is always spot on. Very friendly and have recommended them to many friends and family.
I've been going to the Osteopathic Centre now for a number of years, initially to help me with some running issues. These days though the number of issues are mounting up and not always to do with running. In all cases though I'm treated with care and respect, even when I'm being told off for not following advice. Thanks Patrick & Louise!
For four years I struggled to climb stairs as my knee would lock and I had the worst back pain. The QEII was a nightmare and told me there was nothing wrong with my back as I still had knee reflexes!!!! So post a lot of mush mash medical opinions I eventually booked to see Patrick. After a single session I was feeling better and 10 years later I have referred countless folk for him to help. So far he is the only one that made a difference and believe me I have been treated all over the world!
A professional yet personal approach which makes me feel at ease. They have won my trust with diagnoses and treatment so much so that I always recommend them to my friends.

The Osteopathic Centre has been a life changer for me. As I limp towards retirement and the joy of throwing away the shackles tying me to a computer screen for hours, if not, days on end, Patrick has managed to keep me upright and active.
It is difficult to imagine life without his help. Pain and sleep deprivation, not to mention the strain on my relationship at home would all have been major issues for me without Patrick’s skill, patience and expertise.
Thank you, my friend.
While out training, I pulled a muscle in my leg. Over a week or so the pain got worse and I had to see someone quickly. Patrick took the time to ask me the right questions, diagnose the problem and he and the team got me back on the road (literally) very quickly. Great service from a great team!
I have been troubled with my back for the past 6 years since a fall at netball. Terry Fowler was recommended to me for deep tissue massage. Terry understands the issues with my back and the treatment to help maintain a pain free back wherever possible. Terry is a runner so he understands the 'niggles' that may come along with the sport. Terry introduced me to Louise North (one of the ostepaths) and Louise has helped so much to ease the pain of my lower back/hips when at times my pain might 'flare up'. The Clinic is in a lovely area and free parking at the site is such a benefit. I cannot recommend Terry and Louise highly enough. Sue Evans, Patient

I have been receiving treatment by Patrick Pearce at The Osteopathic Centre for a number of years, and quite honestly it changed my life. The relief I feel after a treatment with Patrick is amazing, and is worth every penny I have paid over the years. He creates such a calm and warm atmosphere at the centre. In my opinion he more than deserves an award for The Osteopathic Centre.
I've seen Patrick numerous times over the past 3 years with all sorts of running related injuries and would recommend him to everyone! He is a true professional, correctly diagnosing each problem I've had and helping me to a speedy recovery!
This Centre is the best insurance I have against the age related pains. Patrick has the knowledge and kindness
needed to make me always feel more comfortable physically. I cannot recommend him too highly. (indeed a lot of my friends are grateful for my recommendation of Patrick).

Patrick is a fantastic osteopath and has helped me and my family with running injuries that other professionals have struggled with. Patrick also provides lots of good advice on treatment and rehabilitation and I now have a much better idea how to keep my body healthy so I can keep running for many more years. Terry is a great sports masseuse who again provides lots of practical advice. Cannot recommend them too highly.

I have been attending 'The Osteopathic Centre' for about 5 years and have always been impressed by the treatment received. On a relatively recent occasion my answer to a general health enquiry resulted in an immediate referral to a doctor and a subsequent 'day and a half' in the Lister Cardiac Department; probably a life saver!
I've seen Patrick on an ad-hoc basis for help with various issues including lower back pain, upper back pain and neck and jaw tension. I've always found him to listen well, explain carefully what he was going to do, then provide treatment that made a difference. Highly recommended.
