Physiotherapy and Treatments

Physiotherapy helps to restore movement and function when someone is affected by injury, illness or disability. It can also help to reduce your risk of injury or illness in the future.


Physiotherapy can be helpful for people of all ages with a wide range of health conditions.

Shockwave Treatment

Shockwave Therapy, or Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy (ESWT), is a non-invasive technology.

Post Op Rehabilitation

Physioelite specialise in the provision of exercises following post-operative procedures.


This is the type of exercise programme that can be carried on indefinitely.

Tapping & Strapping

Taping can be an extremely useful component of your treatment plan.

The 4 steps of your initial assessment:

Step 1

We thoroughly understand both the history of your condition and then on full examination determine a precise diagnosis for your condition.

After your examination, we will explain to you on a large screen the exact nature of your injury and the faults found. We will ensure you fully understand your condition, and the mechanisms that may have caused it.

Step 2

We provide you with a hands-on management plan that will accelerate your recovery. It is essential for most patients to have specific physiotherapy techniques to improve their condition. This may involve treating your muscles, loosening joints or mobilising nerve tissue. Sometimes, a combination of all of these will be required. We will use specific techniques that will be explained to you in some detail.

Step 3

You can download an exercise app free of charge, and we will send relevant exercises directly to your app, so that you have a record and explanation of what you need to do to make your condition better.  There may be some video content as well as pictures and an explanation of exactly how to carry out the exercise. The physiotherapist will also provide you with additional exercises during your treatment process to improve your flexibility, strength, and mobility.  As alternative format, we can provide you with PDF printouts of your exercises.

Step 4

For some patients we will bring you back in for a review appointment.  These reviews can  now be done virtually if you prefer. This ensures the investment you have made solves your condition and as much as possible limits any return of the same condition. We strive to ensure that you get both value for money and a return to the quality of life that you were expecting.

I went to see James with what turned out to be frozen shoulder. James was great, explaining clearly what was the issue and how physio would help. In addition to the physio he showed me a number of exercises that I should do in between sessions. I would recommend James.
Been to James for rugby injuries years ago and came back recently due to back and groin issues. He sorted me insoles for my flat feet he picked up on. Done a great job at sorting my back out. Knows what he’s on about

I cannot speak highly enough about James and Ruth! My 7 year old had quite a difficult elbow injury to treat. James was patient and worked so well with my son; he made the sessions fun and interesting. He even bought him an Easter egg to celebrate arm straightening after months of it being bent! Ruth was always lovely to deal with, and very understanding when we had to reschedule appointments. We feel blessed to have found such an excellent physio, and have no hesistation in recommending him.

James is extremely knowledgeable, friendly and professional. I had been suffering with a neck and shoulder injury for years and no previous physiotherapists was able to give me relief. In just a few months with James, i feel so much better and i'm gaining back my quality of life.

Both my wife and I have been treated by James for injuries over the past few months. The treatment has been simply outstanding and I have now fully recovered from an Achilles injury that I had for two years. My wife fell from her horse and is now thanks to James able to ride again. Not only is the treatment first class but James is the consummate professional, an extremely nice and engaging individual and delivers an all round very high level of service. I can’t rate him highly enough. A true 5 star service.

I went to James to treat a tear to my MCL. James was fantastic at explaining the problem as well as the different anatomy. He used a range of techniques over the course of the treatment to aid recovery. It was really useful to have a final session showing my boyfriend how to use a massage gun. Would use James again and would highly recommend him to others!

Suffered a torn MCL and hamstring damage, after seeing the NHS I was told it would be months before I was seen. Had a free phone call with James and within a week we were starting my treatment, which has been excellent. This has seen me return to rugby in less time than I would have even imagined, not to mention a great guy. Would highly recommend.

After suffering a mild stroke in July 2021, I saw James for 6 sessions to see if he could improve my shoulder and arm flexibility. Success ! I can now put on a coat without discomfort and reach my back to wash when in the shower.
