Extremely happy with the services recieved. Xavier is friendly, very confedential, extremely flexible with appointments, explains the concerns very througherly.Pleased with this first review. Highly recommended clinic..
I have been having treatment from Xavier for neck and back injuries sustained during a car accident in February. Xavier and his team have helped me so much help me get out of pain and to still be able to compete in the London Marathon this year. They are all very professional and very kind people that have helped me and supported me, without them I don't think that I would have been able to do the London Marathon this year and I would like to send my huge thanks.
I had an medial ligament knee injury sustained at work. Xavier is extremly knowledgeable and thorough and working with him has fixed my knee in no time. Strongly advise anyone to use this practice. Highly recommended clinic..
Fantastic physio therapy we great company. Wouldn’t have recovered as I have if it wasn’t for these guys. Would highly recommend
Was booked in with Xavier due to being involved in a care accident and I’m amazed with the work he’s been able to do on my back in such a short amount of time.
My Physiotherapist help me to understand my problem. I worked with the programme given the physiotherapist which helped me well. I recommend to any of my friends.
Was involved in a Road Traffic incident and was seen by Xavier, David and Benjamin, when I first arrived I had severe pain in my shoulders, neck etc. These guys are great and very very experienced in what they do! They have put me back to near on full recovery. Highly Recommend!
On my first visit, Xavier was able to say exactly what was wrong with my shoulder straight away & how many sessions it would take to fix it. He told me 5-8 sessions & I needed 7. He was friendly & polite, explaining everything as we went along. I wouldn't hesitate in returning to him for any future injury and would recommend him highly to anyone. Many thanks. I recommend to any of my friends.
I've had the good fortune to benefit twice from Xavier's professional services. Last year my wife needed treatment after a long period of illness and the speed with which she managed to stand up and walk was quite remarkable - his patient care was outstanding This year I have needed joint and muscle exercise and after a relatively short programme I feel able to enter life's challenges once again. Many thanks Xavier.
My daughter had a problem with her shoulder and after 6 weeks it is all better now. The service we received was outstanding. Very polite and friendly staff. Would highly recommend.
I injured my knee on a ski holiday.It was a small sprain but being older I was worried about it curtailing my efforts to keep fit.Xavier was knowledgeable, made an good assessment and guided me through a stepwise treatment programme.Six weeks after my injury I was strong and active again.He discharged me in a timely manner,I need only 3 treatments.
A fantastic physiotherapy service. Xavier is a very approachable, knowledgeable and friendly guy who sorted out my physio needs very efficiently.
My husband had operation on arm on bus following accident at work in 2016 bus physio left my husband with 75 per cent disability in arm after being referred to we care physiotherapy my husband now has 90 per cent use of arm I cannot recommend we care physio enough excellent
Excellent treatment, I'd previously had awful pain in my knee which was fixed after four sessions. Xavier was very friendly. Would definitely recommend.
Brilliant service very professional and very friendly would definitely recommend that if you need this kind of treatment that you use these Came to here after having been knocked off a motorcycle. I had treatment elsewhere before but had minimal effect. When I started treatment here my lower back was in a chronic condition and day to day activities where hard and things like my main hobby fishing where not even thinkable of doing now I have very minimal ache from time to time and have started going fishing again and that isn't causing any issues so back to practically normal but have decided that I will continue to come once a month just to make sure the pain doesn't raise its head again
Xavier is an expert in his field. Absolute spot on diagnosis, when his assessment matches your symptoms without first discussing them it’s amazing and reassuring that you're in capable hands. Xavier provides a relaxed environment and he packs in as much treatment as he can within the session to promote recovery. Appropriate exercises given. Xavier provides understanding when I lacked understanding and a positive attitude when my physical and emotional levels have been low at times. Highly recommend.
Xavier has been treating my neck and back after i was hurt in a car accident. Immediately i started feeling better. I decided to carry on with sports massages after my 6 week treatment due to my work. Xavier is very professional and a lovely Gentleman. Highly recommend him and the centre.
Xavier is really professional and clearly has an in-depth knowledge and understanding of the human anatomy and physiology. I visited Xavier with an ongoing shoulder and neck issue which then became unbearable. There was a difference after the very first session and with 5 sessions I feel a massive improvement in pain reduction and mobility. Will definitely visit again and recommend! Thank you, Xavier.
