Physiotherapy Session

Testimonials

Please see what our patients say about us

In my role as a fitness manager I have many clients that have asked me about various injuries and whether I could recommend a physiotherapist. I always have no hesitation in sending them to Brook Physio and explain to them how friendly and informative the staff are and how they put them at ease giving them a thorough and comprehensive examination compared with other clinics. After receiving treatment with Brook Physio, all my clients have reiterated one common theme, ‘If only I had gone to Brook Physio sooner! Many thanks Brook Physio.

Neil Witherington Director of Physicals Health Club and Stevange Borough FC Sports Scientist  2011

By the time I was recommended to see Ian I had been suffering with chronic back pain for about 2 years, I was unable to work and I had had to drop out of university. In that time I had seen dozens of specialists in every imaginable discipline and had undertaken numerous treatments but none of these had any substantial positive effect. Ian put a lot thought into understanding my case, and I quickly grew to really trust his analysis and value his support. He first helped me work through all the conflicting advice I had been given, and understand why it hadn't worked, and then worked with me to permanently sort out the problem.  Ian's analysis of my chronic pain showed me how small alterations in my everyday activities; how I sit, stand and walk, were the key to getting back to normal. Thanks to Ian I was able to get my life back on track: I finished my degree, and since then I have done a masters, can work full time without a problem, and can get on enjoying life. I am extremely grateful to him; I really couldn't recommend him higher to anyone who is suffering as I did.

I broke a vertebra in my lumbar back whilst snowboarding and went to NHS physiotherapy for about 9 months. 
A year later I still suffered from bouts of terrible pain which often stopped me going to work and Doctors had told me I would now always have problems with my back. I thought “enough is enough” and was recommended to see Ian by a colleague. Ian’s treatment was miraculous! He didn’t just look at the region I injured but how I used and moved my whole body. Not only did he cover the physical aspects but examined my “fears” and lack of confidence about using my back. Even after the first session, I noticed a dramatic difference and after only a few sessions I felt “normal” again. 
Since his treatment I’ve climbed mountains in Italy, started running longer distances and I’ve even been back on my snowboard! I am completely pain free and have forgotten I ever had an accident. Thank you Ian!

I have known Ian since 2007 in his capacity as consultant physiotherapist for West Ham United, Charlton and now Portsmouth FC. Ian has always provided a teaching input to my staff and I would definitely recommend his lumbar spine in football course. Ian integrates evidence based current manual concepts with an understanding of the specific demands of the sporting environment. Ian’s willingness to illustrate, through practical demonstration of injured players, the examination and management approaches provided an invaluable insight into the way he works.

I have known Ian since 1986 and throughout my managerial career he has been an enormous support to me. I have needed Ian’s expertise with certain complex or recurrent injuries that were not resolving with standard physiotherapy.  This support has been vital for the club physios to keep the injury rates down and to enable us to get the best team out on the pitch. When I was the England U 21’s Manager, I actively encouraged some premier league and championship club physios to see Ian for consultancy opinions on problems players.

No more sciatica! No more limping! Thanks to Ian, I can get on with my life again. Brook Physio is not a one-size-fits-all practice where everyone with the same symptoms receives the same treatment. Ian actually got to the root of my problem and has taught me to change the habits that were causing me pain and incapacity. His energy and enthusiasm are enormous, as is my gratitude!
