Latest News


"I went to James after running an Ultra Marathon and picking up what I thought was a knee injury back in February. James successfully diagnosed a deep tissue hamstring injury and the problem was resolved after 3 sessions with him. I was very pleased to be back running in no time at all."

Jason Dickson

"I found James' physio treatment to be highly effective. He was extremely helpful throughout and taught me which exercises would be useful in preventing the issue from coming back again. Highly recommend him."

Marcus Forsey

"I went to see James following a sports mishap, at which stage I couldn't bend or sit without extreme discomfort. Within 2 weeks I was considerably improved and after another 6 weeks I am back to 95% with the final 5% in my hands following an exercise programme devised by James. It has been well worth getting professional treatment!"

Rhys Lankester

"Fantastic, professional service with great results. James was friendly, flexible and person focused. Having had my injury for two years I was pessimistic about what I might achieve from the sessions, but the improvement was brilliant. James was transparent about what I might expect to achieve from the sessions and how much it might cost from the outset. As a qualified physio I'd highly recommend Physioelite!"

Emily Plant

"James provided an excellent service as he helped me recover from damaged knee ligaments and after 3 months of sessions and following a tailored exercise programme I am now back on the pitch. Thanks James!"
