" My GP in Stoke-on Trent sent me for an MRI of my spine due to ongoing back issues. The results said that I have annular tear at L4-  L5 in the low back, and was told there was 'nothing they could do about my pain'. But I've been since attending Dr. Leah at this clinic, due to a family referral, I drive from Stoke to see her. Fantastic! "

" To be honest, I feel so much better since coming here.  I'm a furniture mover and company owner - and beforehand, I had pretty bad spinal pain. It was hard to get out of bed. Not any longer! You should try this - Absolutely!"

Owner, South Gloucestershire Taxis


"I'd been having a back pain problem with my back for years by the time I came
to see Dr Leah the first time.
Sitting, walking, and even dressing had become a daily challenge for me.

Even after the first adjustment I felt a tremendous difference.  I have been sending many people to see Dr Leah, including work colleagues and even my husband.  The many people I've sent have really improved.  I trust her - she's competent and very thorough and careful, and I highly recommend this clinic."

" When I first came to Dr. Leah, who sorts out my spine with her adjustments, I struggled with walking due to spinal pain. What originally was painful to do - is now enjoyable, and it's  just fun to be able to walk and work and be more active, and I reduced my medication by half. Your back is like a car - If you service it properly, it runs properly.   I feel better! "

" Initially I was suffering from a recurring painful low back that was wrapping round to my groin area after years of playing football,
and I found Cool Green Planet Spine Studio by chance.

As my job entails a lot of driving, my back pain got more problematic. The practice has made an amazing difference to the (above) pain I was suffering and I continued to visit for the excellent flexibility for availability as and when

I feel the need.    Highly recommended!!"

" I was exposed to medical radiation and it was brilliant for healing of my condition at the time. However ... A long term side effect of the medical treatment above was extreme stiffness of my spine and connective tissues. Now I'm under care at this spinal studio and much less stiff and more supple and my back is getting better. Rejuvenating! "

" My job involves a lot of heavy lifting and being on my feet 10 hours daily.
I'd got to the point where just walking brought me close to tears. I was suffering pain in my neck, shoulders, lower back and hips. Dr. Leah eased the pain straightaway and now I only rarely suffer mild pain, and plan to continue with her to keep it right.  
I highly recommend this clinic as a first choice - 5 stars"

" My back pain had been pretty bad, I was in quite a state when I first came to see Dr Leah, and I hadn't imagined I would get to the position
where I could train again and run a 10K. 

But I am running again due to much less back pain!  This is the longest distance I've been able to run in twenty years.  My 10K time of 54min 25sec is more than I could have ever hoped for - Really Pleased! "

"Having a fairly active lifestyle horse riding, downhill skiing and mountain biking, knocks and falls seem to be part of my life. 

I have been under ​Dr Leah's care for six years, and she​
 has always been able to remedy my back pains with care and compassion - without which, I'm sure my lifestyle would be significantly more limited.

"I had orthopaedic surgery to re-align my foot and inputting a metal rod to stablise the ankle in June 2007. Since then I have suffered stiffness and daily pain in my ankle and the left side of my body. This condition caused me lack of confidence in walking very far or taking part in physically active pursuits, especially on uneven ground as my ankle would swell and cause more pain to the point that I became quite depressed. The pain in my ankle also caused some sleepless nights. I had visited a chiropractor before, but I was extremely impressed with the thorough examination from Dr Leah Remeika-Dugan (with staff assisting in taking notes so that Dr Leah could focus closely on me) that I had on my first visit to Cool Green Planet Healthy Spine Place.

" I have suffered with severe neck, head, and shoulder pain as well as migraine headaches for years. Having been to several chiropractors, I've felt great relief under Dr. Leah's very professional and qualified spinal manipulative care.  I have much less pain, more mobility, and no longer need daily medication. I would highly recommend this clinic."

Dr. Leah pictured with Elina, the cutest patient of the month. She is from Łódź, Poland, and attends with her mum, Milena.  Spinal adjustments can, at times, help "little people" too ... Elina's mum reports good relief for herself & improved spinal health, and wanted the same for her family.

" I came with bad neck and shoulder pain and really stiff.  It was quite painful and things were getting annoying.

With regular spinal adjusting at this clinic,  it is much better and I am able to do more activities - in fact I am training for the London Marathon now and I have felt well enough to start a new company.

" After seeing doctors and being given tablets for back pain that were just not helping, and being told just to take things easy, I was at my wits end.  I was then told about Dr. Leah who has helped me get back to my normal self. I am much happier and have recommended her to other family members who are also very happy and come long distance to see her. "

Dr Leah gave me confidence from the way she approached me, and I felt secure that she could help me, and she was the FIRST person to explain to me that most of the pain was due to misalignment in my spine! My first adjustment was made after the exam and I was duly impressed. After a couple of weeks and at the request of Dr Leah, I had some x-rays taken that confirmed Dr Leah's diagnosis (see x-rays above) and I could see for myself the state of my spine, and was educated from the x-rays (this is only done by this office on rare occasions and only when absolutely needed, as was explained to me). 

Since starting my spinal manipulative care my ankle has improved both in mobility and with a marked reduction in pain to almost nothing. I can also walk MUCH further than before and without my ankle swelling up. My experience of coming to Cool Green Planet A Healthy Spine Place and seeing Dr Leah has changed my life for the better! Dr Leah is dedicated to helping her patients by relieving their pain and improving their health. The experience of being a registered patient at Cool Green Planet that differs from other treatments is that Dr Leah does not rush their patients in and out as if on a conveyor belt and you can relax knowing you are in great hands. Your distance from this practice should not be a factor in your decision to take up care in this clinic.  I  consider having been and being a patient here an important factor in my renewed ability to enjoy my life due to, for one, a lot less pain - and would suggest to others to travel here for your care." Mrs Yvonne Baker, Bristol Chiropractic Patient


" I came to Dr. Leah with chronic rugby related neck pain and low back pain, and as a property developer, I do manual work.  I am exceptionally pleased with the care I received and continue to be a long term patient for years.
In my personal opinion, you'll not receive attention like this from others and I would not still be playing rugby without her care.  5 stars! "

As a clinic, we are honoured to re-introduce these two specific patient

cases from Slovakia and eight and a half years on...  (Feb/2018) - Dr Leah

 "I am happy to still be in touch with Dr Leah even though it is

       many years since we move back to Slovakia.  I think she is very kind person and truthfully cares about her patients. 



Firstly I visited Dr Leah with a strong low back pain in 2009.  My back problems increased after ignoring what my body was trying to tell me. After Dr Leah examined me and adjusted me for two months, it return me back to work in normal life without any pain.

Then in June of 2009 was born our daughter Juliana Lokšová. We realised in a few days she do not turn her head to the left side or feed on the left - she did it to the right only.

That was when we decided to visit my chiropractor Dr Leah and ask her to examine baby Juliana.  Already after the first visit made adjustment Juliana make progress with moving her head and suckling left. In another few days she was able to turn her head complete normally.
Julianna is now eight and a half, good in school,  and active and sportive child.

Eight and a half years later I write a second time to update my thanks to Dr Leah

from both of us.  She helped our family and Juliana get a good start in life.

" When I first came, I was struggling to walk, and was sure I would have to give up my athletic activities and leisure.  I count on Dr Leah's care as a lifestyle necessity.  I'm still surfing, cycling, and snowboarding, and I definitely think it's helped me to carry on with those activities. 
Old guys need this! "
