A word from our patients


Helen W.

Adam is a very knowledgeable professional who treated my ankle pain through fascia manipulation. I felt very informed and supported throughout the treatment and found Adam to be dedicated and helpful in suggesting exercises and aftercare, once the pain had subsided. I would thoroughly recommend him.

Miroslaw M.

I can’t even express how much Adam helped me with my painful shoulder, and how grateful I am for his work. He is a one of the very few people I could trust and rely on. He was always encouraging and put lots of effort into my recovery. He is just great at his job, always believed that I would  fully recover, and he was right. I cannot express how glad and grateful I am. Can absolutely recommend!

Callum C.

Adam has consistently shown to be not only a motivated and hard worker, but also someone with an ability to adjust his physiotherapy techniques to suit the client’s changing needs. He is constantly updating his qualifications as well as well as learning new techniques such as ‘taping’. I have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending his specialist ability
