James provided me with 11 weeks of diligent, knowledgeable and fundamentally worthwhile physio treatment following a hip operation. On top of this James assisted with hydro therapy which was an important development in my recovery. His explanation of my circumstance was described in a fashion that made a complicated situation much more coherent for me. Following treatment with James, I feel much stronger in my hip and body more generally, and have a greater understanding of hip anatomy and what I need to do to continue recovering well. I also appreciate the straightforward nature of booking appointments thanks to his office. Overall, I would recommend James to anyone in need of post surgical rehabilitation or merely minor muscle strains and the like. Thank you James for all the help.

James was incredibly helpful and knowledgeable. He managed to diagnose and treat an injury I had been suffering with for a year. After a course of treatment and shockwave therapy, the issue has gone.

Great practice. Fitted me in at short notice, was very knowledgeable, explained everything clearly and gave very effective treatment. I was also given exercises to complete after treatment to continue my progress. Well recommended.

James provide honest professional opinions, developed a management plan at the very beginning and set realistic expectations of what we could achieve or not. Good availability for appointments and flexible fair fees structure. Has motivated me to make a major lifestyle change on long term fitness. Wan

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.
