“I have been treated by Scott at Sports and Spinal Physio since November for, initially, a knee problem. With speed and efficiency Scott detected the reason for my knee complaint and set me up with numerous exercises over a three monthly period to ensure I could rectify the problem. Since then I have been able to make much more bold and confident steps with my exercise routine and suffer very minimal pain. We are now looking at strength training which is lacking in my regime. Scott always listens to my requirements or concerns, be they physical, medical or financial and I feel fully confident that I will move onto the next level of physical wellness under his expert guidance.”
“Amazing. I thought my active life as I knew it was over after my accident until I made an appointment with Anna and also saw Scott. So helpful and encouraging. Their advice and exercises were straightforward and informative. Thank you so much guys. You have given me my mobility back and the tools to get better.”
“Excellent service all round. Anna's quick diagnosis, expert advice and personalised exercise plan (reviewed and updated at each session) has helped me recover from a painful back injury - from struggling to walk to back running. Thank you.”
“I had severe stiffness and soreness in my right knee following poor rehab after surgery - I met with a physio called Anna for several sessions who was excellent at quickly diagnosing the problem. Anna developed a personalised programme of exercises for me to undertake in between sessions - these proved to be beneficial in addressing my issue - the result now is that I am back running pain free.”
“Back in March, I tore my hamstring playing tennis. But I limped along to Sports and Spinal and they soon put me right. Initially it was Lucy who helped me along and then, when she left Anna took over. She was terrific to work with, always encouraging and pushing me on to test myself. We had a good laugh too, which always helps! So the long and short of it was, she got me back playing again and in better condition than I was in before the injury. I couldn't recommend Sports and Spinal in general and Anna in particular highly enough!”
“I suffered from sciatica during the day and night due to a protruding disc putting pressure on the nerve roots. Dan took me through an exercise programme which almost completely cured the sciatica. I still get the odd twinge which is controlled immediately by simple exercise.
This is an excellent result and I have no hesitation in recommending Sports and Spinal Physio to anyone with a similar condition.”
“I hurt my back in April and was referred to Sports and Spinal Physio. I was treated by Anna who straight away helped me on the road to recovery by firstly dealing with the excruciating pain, and then setting me different exercises every session to strengthen my back. I am now back to full fitness and can not strongly recommend Anna enough with her knowledge and patience in the treatment provided for injuries or spinal problems.”
“I was getting severe pain in my left hip and down the outside of my thigh to my knee which meant I was unable to stand for more than a few minutes and not able to do even normal daily activities. My assessment with Dan found I had a problem in my lower back and also a weakness around my left hip. Anna started me on a programme of exercises. She very patiently explained and showed me how to do them, kindly allowing for my age and fitness level, and also provided details and videos by email to help me do them at home. The exercises were gradually increased in number and intensity under Anna's supervision and support and after 12 weeks I was pain free and still am. Also, my balance has greatly improved, my posture is better and I am now back to doing everything and more better than before. I was initially quite nervous but everybody at Sports and Spinal Physio were welcoming and professional and I would not hesitate in recommending them.”
“A professional, knowledgeable and friendly team.
Scott understood my condition and symptoms after the initial review and the treatment and exercises resulted in an improvement in my lower back pain within a few weeks.
My condition is specific to cycling and this was understood from the start and exercises recommended accordingly.”
“I have been suffering with weekly headaches for years but after seeing Scott twice a week and following his exercise plan I haven't had 1 for over 2 weeks! I can't tell you how happy this makes me. I highly recommend both Scott and Dan and wish I'd seen them a long time ago. The practice isn't cIose to where I live, but I am willing to travel because I always feel very comfortable at the sessions (and have never had a problem with parking).”
“Anna is the Best, so good at what she does caring, kind and patient. Gave me daily Exercises to do which cleared up my shoulder problem in no time, keeping up with them still, can Highly Recommend their servicess.”
“I visited Dan after suffering hip/glute pain when training for the London Marathon in 2018 and eventually having to defer. Dan quickly diagnosed the issue as Glute Med Tendinopathy. Rather than just treating the issue, I have been working hard with both Dan and Lucy for well over a year now to both identify and work on the underlying causes to ensure the injury (and potential other running injuries) didn’t reoccur. I’ve found them both to be not only very professional, but also extremely friendly and personable in their approach. It’s not been an easy journey, with Dan uncovering further hip issues along the way - which may well have remained hidden potentially causing more problems down the line! But I’m very pleased to say I completed the 2019 London Marathon on Sunday feeling very strong and comfortable having suffered nothing more than a few small niggles throughout my training this year. I really couldn’t have done it without Dan’s expertise and guidance and I would highly recommend Sports and Spinal Physio!”
“Dan is a thoughtful, understanding, engaging and truly caring physiotherapist who approaches problems with sensitivity and an overall care. Instead of treating symptoms, he works hard to identify the root of the problem and he is very good at it. Dan helped me correct the instability in my pelvis and SI-joint following a sesamoiditis injury, through a step by step exercise program, to which he made adjustments week by week. Throughout my treatment, Dan was always very supportive and approachable. I recovered quickly and have been very well since.
After my treatment, I participated in TPM active screening which is kind of a whole body screening via various exercises to identify weaknesses that may in time become the cause of an injury. I think TPM is a very beneficial tool as it brings one's awareness to some of her/his dysfunctional patterns of movement so a change towards functional can begin.
I am very grateful to Dan and I cannot recommend him highly enough.”
“After injuring my back in May 2018 playing football and being unable to walk for a a couple of days after doing so, Dan and Sports and Spinal Physio team have played an integral part in getting my problems sorted and getting me back playing football and golf to a point where I no longer feel pain whilst doing so. Without their first class, professional care and expertise I would not have recovered so quickly and be pain free. The exercises I have been prescribed to do have also worked really well and they are also enjoyable to do, making doing them a lot easier. I cannot praise Dan and his team highly enough.”
“Anna my physio was an absolute star! She was professional, friendly and very patient- I am not great at taking advice and doing what I am told! She has helped me greatly with shoulder problems and sciatica. Thank you so much!”
“I have been having severe headaches daily for 1.5 years which were getting worse as time went on. I was miserable and could not work out what was wrong even after lots of medical checks. After one session with Anna, she found the problem and gave me exercises to do. She mentioned it would take some time to fully recover but after only a few sessions I felt great which I did not expect. Anna has helped me gain my health back and I could not thank her enough. She is excellent at her job and had spent time studying me.”
