Having had a shoulder injury for a while I was treated by Desiree. She carefully assessed my condition, outlined the treatment and provided a useful guide on timescales to properly manage my expectations. With the benefit of hindsight she was spot on with all she said.
For me an important part of any treatment is how the service is delivered. Desiree was very professional, practical and personable and I recovered well following her advice. This meant that I was able to return to sport and exercise as quickly as I could.
For completeness, part of my issue was developing an injury during the Covid lockdown. I sought treatment as soon as I could when things opened up. All of the procedures put in place to minimise the risk of infection worked well and I had no qualms having treatment in that environment.
When I first met Amanda Harris I was suffering considerable pain and lack of mobility in my left leg following a sports injury. As I had historical left knee issues I feared that I would not regain my previous level of left knee/leg functionality. Amanda quickly identified the problem – a torn calf muscle – and recommended a highly effective course of treatment and exercises so that I was back to my previous fitness level within six weeks. Amanda has now created for me an excellent exercise programme to help me protect and maintain my left knee and leg to minimise the risk of further injury. She is highly knowledgeable, very personable, reassuring and professionally proficient – I am so pleased and grateful to have benefited from her expertise. I found the remote assessment very useful to reduce issues I started to have with my wrist that were directly related to my home office set up. The physio listened carefully, asked for photos in advance and a view via the video call. It helped that my teenage daughter could assist with this task! The advice was sensible and I started applying it immediately, and purchased the equipment recommended. Both have led to me being more comfortable and the pain id reducing in my wrist.
I recommend this service which is essential, in my opinion, for all of us remote working more than the odd day on an ad hoc basis. A few minutes time and small investment may be the difference between continual pain and irritation and discomfort.

Received a professional online desk assessment from the physio company whilst working at home to help me set up a home office and working environment which has been very useful. Good communication prior to assessment, great professional assessment and advice, follow up checks to ensure set up working well. Overall, great professional service which has created a comfortable home working environment, highly recommended.
I took a remote assessment of my working from home arrangements. It was done thoroughly and efficiently, looking at all the important aspects of the working from home environment – the mix of working standing, sitting down, having a relaxed area for thinking and reading long documents. It was a few weeks into the lockdown and I felt that the physiotherapist was already completely comfortable with looking at working from home arrangements. All in all I am very satisfied with the service.

I first went to see Lisa when I realised the gap in the middle of my tummy, apparently something many women experience post-birth, had not closed up properly. At the initial appointment Lisa did a very thorough assessment and reassured me that despite being 3 years post partum (and having had 2 c-sections) it would still be possible to fix the problem! Over the next few months she gave me a number of different exercises to strengthen my pelvic floor and abdominal muscles and gradually we began to see some improvement. She also taught me how to adjust my breathing and engage my pelvic floor when doing everyday activities, such as lifting my child, which has been very helpful. The exercises were adjusted as my core strength improved and nine months on I am delighted with the difference in my tummy between when I first started treatment and now! I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Lisa for any woman’s health related concern.
When I first visited Katherine I could hardly walk across the room without experiencing quite severe pain. Katherine has fixed me. I am extremely grateful for everything that she has done. On top of that she is a really lovely person. She really cares. She is professional, personal and clearly very good at her job. I cannot speak too highly of her. I have recommended her to several friends as well. Katherine is brilliant.

Amanda has helped me through a torn hamstring which has taken over two months to recover. This is the second time I have had a hamstring injury in the past eighteen months so it’s taken longer to heal. Amanda has shown me great exercises which have really helped ease the pain. Amanda has used amazing techniques and sports tape so it’s easier to move without hurting yourself and to loosen the muscles. And for those reasons I recommend Amanda and the rest of The Physio Company.

Rebecca (Becs) has been fantastic at getting me back on the Rugby pitch. I was suffering with severe pain in the Achilles and Becs really took the time to get to the root of the problem as well as to relieve the symptoms. The treatment program got me back to playing sooner than I had anticipated. Thanks Becs

I highly recommend Amanda Harris and her team at The Physio Company – without Amanda’s care and treatment, I certainly would not be back at work and functioning normally once more. My husband was so impressed, he also become a client!
Back at work and functioning normally
I saw Lisa Few for post-natal back pain. She clearly articulated the issue, gave detailed explanations of the exercises that I required and revised my treatment programme as my condition improved, working towards my end goal of returning to running. Lisa happily answered all my questions along the way and I could not recommend her highly enough.
I saw Tamsin for lower back pain. She was quickly able to diagnose the problem and devise a plan to alleviate the pain with intense massage and also to recommend home exercises. I am extremely impressed by her skill and professionalism, not to mention truly grateful for the treatment that she gave me. I am pleased to say that she has sorted out my back problem.
I had an amazing experience on my first visit to Amanda. I was so grateful that they were prepared to see me even though they were fully booked. I was in severe pain with muscle spasm in my back and chest. I was struggling to breathe because of the pain and could barely manage to walk. I virtually crawled in to see Amanda and 45 minutes later after acupuncture and manipulation, I walked out. Incredible. Thank you so much.
Crawled in — and walked out!
I have had treatments with Amanda Harris over the last six weeks. At all times Amanda was very professional, helpful and the treatment has been successful. I am very pleased with the progress I have made and would definitely come back.
I have been seeing physiotherapists for over 20 years due to contact sports, including physio’s from Team GB and England rugby. The quality of Tamsin’s work is extremely high as is her attention to detail. She has a real passion for her work and that comes through at every session. I have had treatment in 3 different areas of my body: shoulder, knee and back. The last two are injuries which I have been managing for many years. Tamsin identified and treated the root of the problem, not just the symptoms. Spent time going through various new and effective exercise I should be doing. I am about to have surgery on my shoulder and will most definitely be asking her to help me with the rehabilitation programme. She is a very joyful person. You go in to her treatment room grumpy and in pain and not only does she treat your body, but makes you laugh at the same time. Tamsin is outstanding, I could not recommend her more.
