Suthan is a firm believer in the principle of prevention rather than cure. Of course when a person attends with a pre-existing condition his aim is to assess, identify and resolve the condition as soon as possible as this will save the client time, money and avoid long-term pain He has a special interest in the treatment of neck and back pain as well as sports injuries.

This makes Suthan’s approach to treatment very personal, practical, effective and thorough.
