I came into the clinic on crutches after being in so much pain. Within a short time Charlie had given me a diagnosis .I had a cortisone injection....within a few days, no crutches and able to walk without pain. After a further visit to discuss my way forward. I am so delighted. Thanks Charlie!Barbara Burls
I've visited Charlie at the Whitstable clinic several times now and he never fails to put me back together. The latest was a disco related injury(!!) leaving me with pain in my back and shoulders. I can't thank Charlie enough for straightening me out. Highly recommended!Iain Baker
I’ve had back pains on and off for the past few years on account of my job so I went for my first sports massage with Jack. He was friendly and professional, he explained what he was doing and how it would help me. I will definitely be booking again!Clive Baldwin
I have been to the Joy Lane Clinic over the last couple of years for my neck problems. Often times I have showed up when my neck problems have gotten to the point where they were disrupting my daily life. Charlie has been able to treat my condition every time. Charlie is extremely professional and Continue Reading
I've been training with Lucy for a little over 2 years and can honestly say it has changed my life. When I met Lucy, I was in a pretty bad place, both physically and mentally. Since then, Lucy has built me up with a mix of hard work, enthusiasm and encouragement. The confidence she's given Continue Reading
Charlie has treated me twice now, and both times got me back to health. The last time was for ITB syndrome which had all but stopped my ability to run. I was concerned it couldn't be fixed but after an immediate diagnosis of what had caused it, and a few sessions of physio, I was Continue Reading
I highly recommend Joy Lane Clinic, in particular Jack, the sports massage therapist. I’ve had lots of massages in the past for various things and none have been as effective as Jack’s treatments. He seems to genuinely care and this is evident in the service he provides. This will now be my port of call Continue Reading
My pelvis was out of place causing back spasm. I’ve had a second session with Charlie Bannigan today and feeling great. He sorted out my neck issue out at the same time.Very Professional, good diagnostician. I am impressed. Good not to be in pain! Many thanks.
I’ve been to see Charlie many times over the years. He’s always been able to sort out my shoulder, neck and back issues within one visit. I even went to him when I had recurring headaches that wouldn’t shift and within a couple of visits it was sorted. I went again today after experiencing some Continue Reading
I am currently undergoing treatment with Ben for ongoing back pain. Ben is very professional and has made me feel at ease. As well as the treatment I have received he has been able to advise me on exercises that I can do at home and I have already seen some improvement after just two Continue Reading
I came to Charlie with an old lower back issue. The clinic is great, reception was very welcoming. Charlie had all my old notes available, as always completely professional and I am now back to full mobility, cant thank you enough....lots to do.Donnna Richardson
I felt totally at ease, great ‘bedside manner’. I didn’t realise how much my muscles were so tight and painful. Hopefully with some more treatment and giving myself some mild exercise I’ll get my problems sorted.Christine Coshall
Everything’s straightening out and I’ve been doing some gentle ‘flys ‘ etc with weights each day to pull the front back and it feels amazing. I’m trying to get rid of the ‘body tics’ I seem to have had ( and didn’t notice ) and each day the pain is easing. I keep checking my Continue Reading
"Massively recommend Jack for sports massage. Went to him with a badly recurring trigger point, he not only got rid of it but he found and worked on about 27 others too! When I returned 4 weeks later there was almost nothing left to find! Thank you Jack!"
Dear Charlie Thank you so much for seeing me last night. Today I was able to walk and be normal. Hadn't realised how bad it had got and how much I had actually been putting up with. Being able to walk around normally is an underrated thing!
Gosh Charlie, what a difference. I can hear a bit of joy in my mums voice and she’s started walking round the house without the stick. I told her to do some stretches to open up the chest as shoulders still playing up but eveything should fall into place. Thanks for being brilliant as always Continue Reading
Having suffered from acute episodes of back, muscle, and joint pain for almost 30 years, recently finding the relief and consequent joy that a good sports massage can bring has been a revelation. Over this 30 year period I have hugely benefited from osteopathic and chiropractic treatments when my back “goes” and I am in Continue Reading
I just have to let you know how happy I am with your diagnosis and treatment for a sports injury that I have been suffering with for many years.

British & Irish Lions Supporters Tour NZ 2017 I encountered Charles in New Zealand on the British & Irish Lions Supporters Tour, 2 hours into a 4 hour cross island coach trip. I was in a serious amount of pain and distress arising from a pre existing problem with inflammation of the sacro-iliac joint leaving me unable to sit Continue Reading
I want to leave a testimonial about how amazing Charlie was in treating my 16 year old son Hugo who had two old fractured vertebrae that the medical profession could do no more for... He was just starting his revision for his GCSEs and all the sitting was so painful and I was so worried how Continue Reading
I found the Joy Lane Clinic is the best solution for my carpal tunnel syndrome. I've been suffering it for years, with the help of Charlie I couldn't believe how quick is the result of the cortisone injection. It's been very effective to me. Also with a good reasonable price, I could definitely say that Continue Reading
I must say that Charlie truly is just the best I've been to. I was close to paralysis before my operation and could not do a lot after it but Charlie has worked on me and now I live a normal life, he really is the best . Once you’ve been to him I promise Continue Reading
I am able to do some of the lovely walks thanks to your help.
I went for a consultation with Charles Bannigan from joy lane clinic about an on going knee complaint. Having previously had surgery I had little or no cartilage left and found even getting down stairs first thing in the morning very painful, and exercising especially running was a no go. Charles put my knee through its paces before Continue Reading
"I just wanted to say thank you so much for fixing my back/hip. The four flights (total 24 hours in the air) were a breeze and my back has not felt this good for some years! Many, many thanks!!"
Rae Mellsop Whitstable
"Lloyd, I just wanted to say what a great job you done on my back and neck today, I have tried 10 osteopaths/chiropractors in the last ten years and none of them have achieved the results you have in one visit. Thank you again. "

"Thank you very much for seeing me last Friday. I don’t know what you did but it worked wonders. The pain had gone by Saturday morning and has not returned. Very many thanks."
"Today, I met Charlie at The Eden Centre, Strabane. I walked up the staircase . . . stiff, sore and indeed nervous! This was my very first time to go to an osteopath. Bearing in mind I already had surgery on my back 4 years ago for disc problems I was unsure if this guy Continue Reading

"I felt that I had to write to tell you how happy I am at the treatment that John has received at your hands. You have worked wonders with him and I feel that our retirement plans are back on track." Continue Reading
You probably don't get much feedback because they don't come back once they're fixed so just to let you know that the knee took a little time to settle but is now solid and strong - best it's been for years! Good job, feller (oh that the golf swing were as easy to fix as Continue Reading
"I would highly recommend Charlie to anyone, his ability to pin point and resolve the problem as quickly as possible without the need for further 'maintenance' is one of his many qualities." Continue Reading
"Charlie seems to work wonders every time I see him, usually I will limp in struggling to walk and within 2 or 3 sessions I am back to full training. Charlie always gives a quick diagnosis and helps alter my training schedule for my rehabilitation."
