“We first came across the wonder that is John Fitzpatrick when he was working within the NHS and boy were we were very lucky to find John. My husband had suffered a severe road accident injury and we were advised by the surgeon that he would never get full range of motion back. Thanks to the dedication and determination of John, my husband surpassed all expectations, the best day ever was when he walked into see John on crutches and came out later with just a walking stick. We have been to John a few times over the years and he has always managed to sort out our injuries, strains ans sprains. I would not hesitate to recommend John and the other Physios at the practice.”
“If you have a teenager in need a Physio go and see Chris Keevil. I can’t recommend Chris highly enough. He engages with them on their level and makes the exercises fun and doable.
