"Relating to my hip and back condition. I would be very pleased to recommend Linda Johnson as a physiotherapist. She has shown great care and focus in her treatment of me as a person and relating to my physical problems."
I had had chronic bilateral hip pain for over two years when I first visited Willaston Physio. All treatments I had tried had failed to improve my pain.
By then I was in a considerable amount of pain and unable to walk any distance. I am delighted that after a thorough examination and a course of ESWT I am very much improved and have reduced pain. My physio explained clearly the treatment and how it works and prescribing a range of exercises to improve muscle tone as well. I cannot thank him enough for improving my quality of life
"Concern over a few aching joints and my balance, plus the fact that I have had osteopenia for some time led me to the Better Bones and Better Balance classes at Willaston Physio & Sports Rehab Clinic. The classes are aimed at strengthening the muscles and bones we use in order to "stay safe" - to prevent falls and to prevent pressure on other joints which can lead to pain and injury...simple things like getting up out of a chair.
The classes are "serious" but they are fun. There is great rapport between the class and the physiotherapist. Everything is explained - so we know what we are doing and why we are doing it.
We work hard but the teaching style is such that we feel motivated. We are pushed - but never too far. Whilst we are a group it is recognised that we are individuals with individual needs and concerns.
I enjoy the classes and I always feel better afterwards. Added to which I have a stock of exercises which I can confidently do at home - knowing I am doing the right thing and that they will help."
"It is because of Julie's care for my feet that I am able to walk in comfort"
"Just thought you might like to know that I had a great week's skiing, with not a murmur from my back. Many thanks!"
"Dan has been fantastic throughout, showing me functional running movements and explaining ways to stretch out and manage pain whilst keeping me upbeat and positive that I will be fixed"
"Belinda is a very good teacher, she makes sure everyone has the positions tailored to suit them. It is also very enjoyable and relaxed."
"I have been coming to Willaston Physio for various injuries for the past 6 years. Neil is great, well qualified and always learning. Having acupuncture from Neil is great, it works great for pain and is actually better than it sounds! I wasn't pushed for acupuncture, he allowed me time to make up my mind and it works a treat! I highly recommend Willaston Physio to anyone. The admin team are so friendly that I can't wait to come every week!"
"Skilled, professional and progressive treatment by a very knowledgeable person, Arun was totally involved in getting me X-rays on the NHS, all leading to a very satisfactory conclusion."
"I have been taking classes for 2 years or so and was very nervous and unsure as I had not done anything like this before. I have a low bone density and have a small amount of oesteoporosis. It has been the best thing I have ever done and helped me gain back my confidence. My back has improved so much and it has opened many other doors for me. I now take 6 classes of different exercise a week and I feel a different person. I enjoy my pilates classes so very much and would and do recommend my pilates classes to many people. It's made me feel young again! I may not be the best in the class but I love it all the same"
"Friendly, efficient practitioner. My treatment made a big difference to my mobility as I had a number of problems. Good advice regarding care of feet etc. I would recommend this service."
I have been a runner for 10 years and last year developed Left knee pain. I had acupuncture and a course of electrotherapy after being diagnosed with Patellar tendinitis. After no improvement my GP recommended ESWT. I had a course of 4 treatments and a programme loaded eccentric exercises from Dan at Willaston Physio and I am delighted to report a huge reduction in pain. I am now back running whilst continuing to do my recommended exercises.
"Willaston Physiotherapy is virtually my second home! I have been suffering from tendonitis periodically for many years and recently sciatic nerve and recovery from a broken back. I cannot stress enough how grateful I am to Linda for her understanding and excellent treatment of my ailments. There is nowhere else that I would go. In my opinion Willaston Physiotherapy are the best and I have no hesitation in recommending them."
"I have had a bad back from the gym now for over 3 weeks, someone recommended Sports Massage and it was amazing. I would recommend this to anyone."
"I had never met Simon before, I was really impressed with the full body sports massage I got. I felt amazing afterwards and I'll defintely be back!"
"I have been attending physio led pilates to improve my muscle tone and psoture following prolapsed cervical discs. The sessions have been very well led by Nicky, who explains the exercises well and supports indivisuals to achieve at their own level. These exercises have helped in my pain management and improved movement."
“Following your expert advice, confident optimism and well-judged
management, I made a great recovery. The training led to completion of
Iron Man 2013 on a very hot day in Bolton!
Thank you! Very grateful for your expertise!”
