I saw Andreas because I had persistent pain in my Achilles’ tendon. I’m 51 and felt quite low at the prospect of not being able to do my normal running routine. Andreas gave me an accurate diagnosis and a really good exercise programme which over a period of three months has really improved my condition. I like the way all the exercises are in the app so you have clear instructions what you need to do. I also found the advice very holistic, tailored to my needs and thorough- looking at my overall exercise patterns and the need to build strength flexibility and stability. Andreas encouraged me to return to running safely and taught me how to avoid further injury by incorporating the exercises into my normal fitness routine . I really recommend this service.

First time I have sought physio for knee pain and a suspected muscle imbalance. Emma was amazing. Quickly diagnosed what was wrong and put a plan in place for recovery and strength building. Would go straight back if I ever needed physio again in the future. Would highly recommend

Jamal was a real help in getting me back to work and living a normal life again after a bulging disc in my neck. He explained what was going on and what I should expect with my healing process. Handy access to exercises through an app too

Fantastic experience - Adelina really worked to understand what I wanted to improve and helped me develop a program to work on them. After my treatment I feel much more able to manage and support the impacts of an old injury that has been impacting me. Her whole approach is positive and relaxing, and whole heartedly recommend her work.

I consulted Andreas for my knee pain. I have always had pain in my knees while climbing down stairs or during hikes and it was exacerbated when I took up olympic lifting. Andreas narrowed it down to weak hips and calves causing patellar mal-alignment. He put me on a program over 6 weeks, gradually increasing the complexity of exercises. He also explained why we are doing what we are doing. I could see significant improvement in the first 2 - 3 weeks itself. The knee pain has reduced greatly now. Hikes are a lot more fun and no pain while doing back squats. Knees feel stronger too. Highly recommend Andreas

I was seeing Andreas for Achilles tendinitis. Andreas has been great at creating a plan to get me back to impact exercise. His knowledge has been great and the programme tailored to my needs. I would highly recommend Andreas and the practice.

Extremely impressed with the quality of care and expert approach to solving both a period of acute back pain and a more persistent mobility issue. The physiotherapy and advice from Emma at Spires has been very effective and especially helpful in building core strength in order to resume regular levels of exercise. Highly recommended.

After having seen a physiotherapist, a general practitioner and a sports doctor, I had an appointment with Adelina. Her diagnosis was much more accurate than the one I had been given before, and the therapy for my hip was really effective. I did the exercises she recommended and within two weeks I started to feel a great improvement. With great enthusiasm and dedication she encouraged me to continue with the exercises and advised me how to prevent further injuries. I cannot recommend Adeline highly enough.

I cannot recommend Emma and Spires Physiotherapy highly enough. Following 3 months of no improvement to my ankle injury, I rehabilitated speedily once I began my exercise programme. The exercises were manageable and tailored to my requirements. Emma is friendly and highly knowledgeable, offering detailed responses to any queries raised. Delighted to be able to run again!

Goals

Once you have a working diagnosis for your injury, we’ll guide you through a staged rehabilitation plan which is targeted towards your exercise goals. Whether you want to return to running, weight-lifting or gardening, your rehabilitation plan will reflect this and your physiotherapist will always keep your goals in mind when treating you. Rather than just treating your symptoms, our holistic approach will get you back to your best, but even fitter and more resilient than before. That’s how we keep you doing what you love doing without re-injuring yourself.

Time

You won’t be in and out of the door within half an hour. We allocate 65 minutes for every appointment. Most initial appointments last 55-60 minutes and follow-up sessions tend to take-up 45-50 minutes. This allows your physiotherapist plenty of time to focus on you, build a tailor made plan and write-up your notes without encroaching on your face-to-face time.

Ethos

We are committed to providing evidence based physiotherapy with the aim of demystifying the world of sports injuries and therapy. We understand that you’ve probably been through the mill with multiple therapists using all sorts of electrical gadgets and gizmos, so we won’t overcomplicate your recovery with modalities that aren’t proven to work. What we will do is take a pragmatic approach, using our extensive clinical experience alongside the best available scientific evidence to treat you effectively and get you back to your favourite sports or activities.
