Being in my seventies, continuing daily physical activity is of the utmost importance to me, however I do expect to have to deal with the occasional injury and since visiting Gordon over the past 3 months I now have the confidence to continue knowing that I have expert advice available when needed.
Gordon initially guided me through a quite severe piriformis muscle strain resulting from over enthusiastic rowing machine exercise which improved quickly from the effective treatment provided but perhaps equally as importantly from the empathetic encouragement and advice I received. As part of the diagnosis, he provided me with a review of my general back condition which I found extremely helpful. I was so taken by the treatment I received that I had the confidence to raise a longer standing shoulder ligament problem I had been experiencing and for which I am now receiving welcome treatment and relief.
Gordon provides his treatment in a modern, comfortable and friendly environment and he takes an interest in your whole well-being. His sympathetic, caring and expert manner is perfect for anyone suffering any form of injury. I can recommend Gordon’s services without any hesitation.

Gordon is an outstanding physio for all ages and sports. I took my daughter see him regarding a foot issue and he identified the problem straight away and treated over a period of time. Unbelievable knowledge and professionalism.

Excellent service. Gordon has all PPI and other precautions in place in his clinic in these pandemic virus times. I felt safe and comfortable. He is a supreme professional and takes time to find out the details of the problem. Highly recommended.

Gordon is an expertise in his field. He has natural empathy to encourage and support you on your journey to recovery. Gordon took care of my daughters injury due to a torn groin muscle, repairing the
damage, strengthening it and enabling her to continue in her sport.
Gordon has done wonders for my back due to degenerative disc desiese, treating it and enabling me to become fully mobile again. We will be forever endebted for his care.
I can vouch that you are in safe , capable hands at all times with this gentleman.

Gordon recommended I go for an MRI scan after a pattern of making improvements but then being knocked back again.
The MRI showed bulging discs, bony growths and a build up around the holes in my spinal cord, which were impinging on the nerves.
The orthopaedic surgeon referred me to neurosurgery. Coming up on 12 weeks I'm still waiting.
The surgeon had not recommended physiotherapy. However Gordon was keen to try twice weekly therapy with the aim of relieving this constant dull ache radiating down my arm and in to my shoulder.
I'm writing this pain free, having not had surgery or even an assessment with the neurosurgeon yet.
Yes I need to be careful and physio is not going to take away the osteophytes. But Gordon has put me in a position where I can live with my condition, pain free, and could well mean I do not have to
have invasive surgery on my neck. Thank you Gordon.

I had my right kidney removed in September 2008 due to kidney cancer. In January 2015 I broke my left humerus and an x-ray showed a pathological fracture. Biopsies confirmed a metastatic clear cell
renal cell carcinoma resulting in bone cancer. So in March 2015 I had a wide excision of the proximal humerus with a metal replacement. Due to the break and resulting major reconstructive surgery I
was unable to use my left shoulder for 14 weeks. I received physio for my 'bad' shoulder and knew it would be a 12 - 18 months rehabilitation program to get as much movement back as I was likely to
Consequently, my right shoulder was over used and this resulted in problems with restrictive movement and pain. I was recommended to see Gordon to get help with physio on my 'good' shoulder.
I first met Gordon on August 4th 2015. Within a few sessions I was able to move my right arm pain free and normal movement returned quickly.
I was pretty low at that time as despite having hospital physio on my 'bad' arm I was making very little progress and because of the severity of the problem felt I was going to end up handicapped.
From day one Gordon diagnosed the issues I had as a result of the bone cancer operation, explained why the problems had occurred and how he could help. I had very little movement in my lower arm, no
shoulder movement (a frozen shoulder) and very poor posture. From my first meeting with Gordon he was positive that I would regain movement back in my whole arm not just from my elbow down. What a
boost to hear those words.
I have been having weekly half hour sessions now for 5 months and I know this will continue for many more. After every session I am given daily exercises to do at home. At times they are hard to do
but by persevering the results are incredible. People are amazed at the all round movement I have back in my arm and shoulder. Each week I find I can do something I couldn't do the week before. It
might only be a small movement but to me that is tremendous progress not only physically but it is excellent for my mental well being as well. My posture is back to normal and I now have straight
shoulders. Emotionally Gordon has been supportive, boosted my positive outlook on life, shown me what I can achieve with hard work and certainly given me the confidence to face whatever life throws
at me as regards my fight against cancer. Negativity is not a word he ever uses or allows me to use.
It was a fortuitous day I met Gordon. Based on my positive, first hand experience I have the confidence to recommend Gordon to help cancer patients with issues they may be experiencing. He has a deep
understanding of the physical and emotional problems that we naturally go through after having this disease and has the expertise to give advice, support and help with not only with the physical
rehabilitation aspect but also emotionally and spiritually too.

I rate Gordon's expertise highly. He has treated me for various sport based injuries over many years. In particular, he successfully resolved a serious Achilles tendon problem enabling me to continue
distance running. Gordon provides ' what's on the tin'. His analysis, treatment and advice are first class and I have no hesitation in recommending him as a top physiotherapist.

I had suffered a back injury during excersise and was advised off a friend to go see Gordon as he had helped her. After the first treatment I felt better . He made me feel so comfortable and relaxed.
After a few more treatments I was fixed and I can gladly recommend Gordon to anyone :-)

Gordon has taken care of both mine, my family and colleagues injuries for over 20 years and I can not recommend him highly enough. His diagnosis of the injury and speed with which he has brought us
back to full health has always been first class and a credit to him not only as a professional but as a person. He uses plain English to explain your injury and puts together a thorough programme to
insure a speedy recovery. Keep up the good work Gordon and here is to your continued success
