I have attended Portobello Physio Clinic over the past few years for various running injuries ranging from IT Band problems to Achilles and calf strains.
Each series of treatments have been well explained, very specific to my needs and ultimately effective in getting me back running as quickly as possible.
The provision of video exercises, which were emailed to me, has proved very helpful as it ensures time spent treating the injury at home is not wasted.
The service has been exemplary, including staff taking calls after treatment has finished to answer any questions, or agreeing to see me during the day, between clients, to spend a moment or two to ensure I know how to effectively complete exercises.
I would highly recommend the team at Portobello Physio Clinic.
Brilliant!
