What Other People Just Like You Are Saying About Cornwall Physio

February 2024

Have spent time on the treatment tables with Lou, Anush, Sophie and Rob, all have been first class, listened and tried to understand me and have taken the time to explain why they carry out the treatmen to help me understand how I can additionally help myself. I’m still work in progress, but happy to have help from the highly professional team at Cornwall Physio.

I presented with a lot of pain from gluteal spasm and nerve pain, and was allocated Sophie as my physio. Ever positive and cheerful, Sophie assessed me and treated me with vigour! The addition of dry needling 4 weeks later had an additional impact, and by week 6 my pain had changed to a soft discomfort. Thanks Sophie for the physio, Rob for the Needling and Dawn for a cheerful reception, always. If I wasn’t moving to Dorset I’d still be attending Cornwall Physio.

I had a great physio session today with Rob, I came in with a sprain on my ankle and Rob has helped me speed up the recovery just in one session. I feel as though they also manage a huge amount in the session and it was great to have options such as the running machine, anti gravity running machine and some of the therapies they offer. The whole team are friendly and professional. I also came away with lots of exercises to help me build up the strength of my ankles, feet and lower legs.
