I had a shoulder injury for the better part of last year, went to see a first physio in another practice that didn't work out well at all. Arrived to Phyio4Life with caution and was so pleasantly surprised. John was amazing. He diagnosed the right cause straight away and from that built up a treatment plan for the next 12 weeks. I just has my last session yesterday and the shoulder looks good, recovered 100%. John was very professional, gave me useful exercises to do at home / gym, followed up on my progress. Really great place, very efficient team of physios.
