Thanks to Steven’s knowledge, care and attention to detail, I’m playing tennis pain-free for the first time in a year. I’d been having severe pain in my heel during and after matches. It had started to affect both my performance and day-to-day life. I attended Optimal Physio where he assessed and then analysed my gait, using his foot scanning equipment. Steven was able to pinpoint where the issues in my heel and foot lay and why the pain was occurring. I was given a personalised programme to follow to help improve strength in my heel, and Steven also developed customised orthotic insoles to give me further support in my feet. Steven’s after care has been first-class and I’m back in business, feeling fitter than ever. No more heel pain. I’d highly recommend Steven and the Optimal Physio team.
Don’t take our word for it... here’s what our clients think.
I'd just like to say how much I appreciated the treatment I have received from Steven. A few months ago I was plagued with neck and shoulder pain but in a few sessions he was able to give me a complete understanding of the underlying issues and exercises that mean I am now pain free. Great work. Very professional and pleasant manner. Absolutely recommend him to anyone looking for a physio.
Thank you for your professional input and support over the past three months. The regular sessions together with your friendly and educational approach provided a platform for discussion and goal setting. While this was not a pain free journey, I felt relaxed during the sessions and grew in confidence in exercising my personal programme at home. Following a successful arthroscopy operation in November 2018 and because my knee had been locked since July 2018, I knew I would require intensive physiotherapy. It was with an open mind that I approached the initial assessment session with Steven in December 2018 and I believe that my range of movement on that session was 0 - 50 degrees. It was with a wonderful sense of achievement when I reached a range of movement from 0 - 100 degrees pain free three months later. This progress was confirmed by my consultant on 5th March 2019. Given the progress to date, I am hoping to avoid knee surgery. I believe that I have made great progress in a short time and I would have no hesitation in recommending Steven to anyone with joint problems.
Both the treatment & advice you provided was excellent including how best to prevent further injury. I think it is important to follow your advice & by doing so I am now running injury free. Thanks for your help.
Thank you to Pamela for her professional services and support after the operation to my foot. It is good that you are located in the Marina area at Largs with good parking available and easy access. Your advice and exercise programme was most welcome and helped speed my recovery. The online booking system was a real bonus in arranging appointments.
