A friend recommended me Physio4Life for sever back pain that I started having in the end of July. I was treated by Victoria who diagnosed my condition as cauda equina syndrome and urged me to immediately go to A&E.
Thanks to her timely diagnosis and the amazing treatment at the hospital I am still able to walk, as this condition can quickly leave someone paralyzed if it's not surgically treated.
Victoria has been treating me for my post-surgery recovery even since and has helped me to steadily get stronger over time. Both her and Hugo who also treated me for a short period are extremely knowledgeable and caring, and will patiently explain all the rehabilitation exercises.
Would definitely recommend going there!
Thank you to Vicky for her advice and recommendations on a cycling injury - after just one visit which included recommended exercises, advice about bike positioning and posture, I was able to complete Lands End to John o'Groats pain and injury free!
Highly recommend both Victoria pitcher and Chris Hughes. Both are kind, understanding and knowledgeable physios who make you feel at ease and get to the bottom of the issue and seek to treat the cause. Future patients you are in good hands!!
Victoria qualified as a physiotherapist from Oxford Brookes University. She worked with the Oxford University women’s light weight rowing team during her years in Oxford supporting them during training as well as on camps and competitions.
Since qualifying Victoria has spent several years in West Sussex working both privately in a sports injury clinic and for the Fire Fighters Charity at a rehabilitation centre, returning them to a high level of physical fitness and function after various injuries. She has also completed a Masters degree at King’s College London, in Advanced Neuromusculoskeletal Physiotherapy and gained a BTEC Level 5 diploma in Sports and Remedial Massage.
Victoria’s specialist interest is in triathlon and endurance sports and she works closely with several sport medicine and orthopedic consultants in London . Having completed her first long distance triathlon in August 2015, Ironman Vichy, she know what is involved from both sides. This year the Alps-Man long distance triathlon in Lake Annecy proved one mountain too many and she is sticking with ½ Ironman distances… for now.
Along with her sport interest Victoria has furthered her knowledge of the neuroscience of pain so is also well equipped to address the multifactorial nature of persistent pain. Victoria has experience with treating injuries of all body parts and has a very holistic approach taking the whole person, their biomechanics, lifestyle and priorities into consideration. She has also trained in Clinical Pilates as well as acupuncture to enhance her treatment skills.
