I went to see Joe at short notice due to an injury shortly before an event I was training for. He efficiently assessed the issue, educated me about the causes and put in place a plan to help retrain and improve the injury. Ultimately I successfully completed the event, which is thanks to Joe, so I can heartily recommend him.

Joe is terrific! I had a really bad knee injury and Joe helped me make a full recovery. He's very knowledgeable and professional and couldn't have asked for a better physio!

From the moment I met with Joe I knew I had made the right decision. Friendly, polite and very knowledgeable Joe has helped me no end with my Sciatic & Piriformis problems and symptoms. Would definitely recommend to anyone with any type of physio they require.

Had a fantastic experience with Joe. Incredibly knowledgeable and personable, he took me from a state where I couldn't bend over to load the oven to being able to run/gym/play sports. Highly recommended.

I suffered with a herniated disc and Spires Physiotherapy was able to fit me in the next day to see Joe. He is so in-depth with his knowledge and explained everything to me. The treatment has been amazing and I couldn’t be more grateful for his expertise. Joe goes above and beyond. I would highly recommend Spires Physiotherapy!

I went to see Joe to address long-standing shoulder pain issues due to spending too much time sat at my desk every day.
The experience was excellent from start to finish, with Joe being very enthusiastic, flexible, and happy to fit in appointments around my work schedule. Joe is also very realistic about providing exercise plans that are easily feasible to do at home with little equipment, and in such a way that it is easy to fit into a busy lifestyle. The symptoms are now clear and i have fresh enthusiasm for a balanced exercise plan, to prevent them re-occuring.
Based on my experience i would highly recommend Spires Physiotherapy.

I had suffered debilitating back and neck pain from the inherent intricacies of my work for about 6 months or more. My colleagues had attended Spires Physio and had recommended Jo to help fix my physical health. I reluctantly booked my first appointment and was amazed at the level of professionalism that Jo displayed. He accurately diagnosed my issues and what was causing them. We both understood that the work-related causes will not go away unless I changed profession but that there were other modifiable factors such as physical activity that could delay or prevent recurrence and had lifelong health benefits. Six sessions later I was completely pain free. It is now 3 months and I am still pain free. What is extremely important to me and thanking Jo for this is that I am now fully back to running (my favourite high intensity physical activity) after almost 20 years of being "passively physically active". I was not sedentary but I was not exercising enough! Moreover, I am already experiencing weight loss without changing anything else. Jo, you did not try to promote your work as the magic bullet to muscle, nerve and bone problems but you recognised the need to tell your clients of the immense physical, mental and cognitive health benefits of physical activity and encourage them to take advantage of these. You were completely honest with me about physio exercises being only a temp fix and boring (are only intended to be therapeutic) and that physical activity (PA) was more satisfying. You helped me get over my fears and excuses for not returning to PA, helped me realise that I only needed a couple of hours a week, no routines necessary, just do what I could when I could would still be beneficial. It also did not matter what I did, run, walk, gym, skip a rope, anything. Thank you Jo at Spires Physio. You are an absolute gem to your profession! I will definitely recommend Spires physio any day any time.

Adelina is an excellent physiotherapist. Very professional and knowledgeable. She planned a bespoke treatment to address my patellar tendinitis problem effectively. Each exercise was explained clearly and I was also provided with a detailed exercise sheet to ensure I stayed on track. After only a few sessions my knee pain is gone and I can now resume exercise as normal. I would highly recommend her.

I was diagnosed with sciatica by my GP and physio was recommended. I saw Adelina at Spires and can only say how pleased I have been. Adelina is a very professional therapist but has a friendly and understanding manner with patients. The programme was tailored to meet my needs, getting progressively more challenging over the 3 months that I visited her. The exercises were designed to build resilience and also to help in the event of a further episode. As well as the exercises to do at home, Adelina also advised on what I could do in breaks on long car journeys and how to sleep more comfortably. She also provided email support and encouragement between appointments.
Brilliant - strongly recommended.

I have struggled with neck, back and shoulder problems for a number of years. I was recently referred to Spires Physiotherapy and the excellent Adelina. Adelina was very friendly and approachable and took the time to listen and understand my symptoms.
Along with the hands on physiotherapy during my sessions with her she developed a bespoke programme of exercises for me to help reduce and manage my symptoms. She also gave me lots of brilliant advice on how to be less sedentary (my job is office/home based) and shared some useful tips on mindfulness. This combined approach has been very successful and not only have my symptoms dramatically improved but I’m also reassured and more confident that I can manage my symptoms moving forwards.
After each session, Adelina promptly emailed me the new exercises we had worked through and was always available to contact if I had any questions about the exercises in-between appointments.
Excellent – highly recommend!

Went in with a suspected torn rotator cuff and was treated by Joe. He very quickly assessed and confirmed the issue and immediately started planning a realistic training program to rehab the shoulder back to where I need it to be.
One of the best things about this treatment was Joe's confidence in getting the shoulder back to health and allowing me to define what 'success' looks like - not just pain free, but getting back to lifting properly.
A month in and the shoulder is more stable, stronger and I have a lot more confidence in it when pushing it.

Gurhan has helped me on two occasions. In both cases he was superb. His professionalism, care, knowledge and patience were impressive and the result was wonderful. He has a delightful manner and deep specialist knowledge. I recommend him without hesitation.
