“Helen treated our 12 year old son following a nasty rugby injury. She impressed us with her calm professionalism and kind patience. She was equally at ease interpreting his non verbal signals; as explaining the injury and recovery to his parents. She was concerned and attentive throughout and he made a full recovery and return to sport, in line with her predicted timescale. I cannot recommend her highly enough.”

“I visited Helen after experiencing knee pain when running and training fully. After a short discussion about my symptoms, some questioning, and a detailed examination, based on finding the root cause of my problem and not just the symptoms, treatment started.

I was also given exercises and advice to build on the treatment designed to get me back training fully as quickly as possible. Over the next few appointments, the treatment and exercises were increased, as I improved, and I was supported with advice to continue my recovery.

All the time I have been treated professionally and in a friendly way. I’m now back training and racing and would definitely recommend Helen.”

Helen treated my teenage daughter for a significant sport-related knee injury, whilst waiting for an NHS consultant appointment and MRI scan. She really listened, and was so knowledgeable but still very approachable and put my daughter completely at ease, which given she was in a lot of pain was a huge relief. All of the exercises Helen suggested were very clearly explained and demonstrated. Her advice was spot-on and it meant that by the time my daughter was seen on the NHS that the healing process had already begun. Also, and very importantly, I was able to convey sufficient accurate detail to the consultant and was able ask all the right questions, making it a much simpler process. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Helen.”

“I had been experiencing back pain over a period of four months and but after three sessions with Helen I no longer suffer any discomfort. I am truly grateful for the very professional attention.”

“Helen has treated my accident prone son on two occasions one for ligament damage to his hand, thankfully she advised he got an X-ray and was put in plaster, I was very grateful for her advice and the exercises she provided, he fully recovered and was back on the sports field within weeks.

His second injury was a sprained ankle, I called Helen for advice and she gave me the reassurance that a trip to A&E was not necessary. Helen’s very calm and caring approach gave him the confidence that he had not done anything serious. Helen provided him with video exercises which were excellent as it meant he could follow them easily and continues to do so.”

"Helen is incredibly approachable and treats her patients as valued individuals. She explained things to me in a comprehensive way and this, together with her warm and bubbly personality, has definitely made me feel more positive and relaxed about my recovery. My shoulder feels great and I am back to playing squash. Thank you!’

“Helen is the ultimate professional. She treated my 13 year old son last year for a groin strain caused by too much sport and athletics and a sudden growth spurt. She very quickly put our mind at rest that although it needed to be sorted it was something that could be treated fairly easily. After each treatment, Helen gave him exercises to do and made sure he was happy with how to do them and why he needed to do them which is ultimately half the battle of getting teenagers to do anything! She listened attentively, treated him accordingly and gave him advice on what to do if or when the pain really flared up. I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Helen and in fact have already done so on many occasions. Thank you Helen.”
