What our patients say

“I just wanted to write to say thanks for the excellent treatment. I seen you in January as I was worried about training when my knee had some swelling post meniscus surgery. My mindset changed after that appointment as I just needed reassurance that it was safe to push my body again. This ultimately led to my success on the track in the months to follow.  I ended up having a fantastic season and broke a 24 year old national U23 4×400 record recently at the European Championships in Finland, where we finished 8th in the final.”
