What our clients says
The Team are wonderful and highly skilled. I have found them all very patient and caring. After suffering with some lower back pain I went to see practice and was shown some exercises to carry out at home. The exercises completely cured my back pain. I would definitely return to the clinic should I need any further physio treatment in the future. I highly recommend the team not only for their expertise, but also their professionalism with patients.
I have been treated by the Team for several different problems over 12 plus years. They include golfers elbow, back and knee problems. They are the best, friendly, reassuring and very knowledgable and always getting me back to tennis and running quickly. I recommend the Team to all my running and tennis friends.
As an ageing, full time working parent, running seems to be the most time efficient way to keep fit. Without years of pure run conditioning, injury niggles are inevitable. I like Dean’s action based plans as resting is never a welcomed option. Following his advice to the letter he has kept me on track to be able to complete London marathons and even achieve some (post children) personal bests.
Very knowledgeable physios, who quickly diagnosed tennis elbow, explained why my body wasn’t healing and devised an effective approach through treatment and exercise to eliminate my pain. Great results and very professional.
