Brian D

"Sarah and Stu at Straight Back Physio have helped me move from the point where I was regularly picking up muscle tears, to the point where I am fitter, stronger and training better than I have been in years. My injuries have been treated successfully, and more importantly for me, the underlying causes have been found and dealt with - meaning I no longer attract the nickname "Mr Glass" from my refereeing colleagues."

I highly recommend Straight Back Physio to anyone who wants a quicker and more permanent recovery from an injury, or who wants to ensure they are doing their utmost to prevent one in the first place."

"Straight Back Physio provide a really friendly and professional service which helped me to make a quicker recovery from my injury. They taught me how to manage my body better to prevent the same injury from reoccurring. Great for ongoing treatment or the odd check up. Sarah and Stu treat everyone as an indiviual and offer what's best for them. Would recommend Straight Back Physio to anyone."

"Sarah and Stuart helped me back to running after an ankle injury and have provided me with the support not only to get back to running, but to take my sports to the next level. Without them there would be no way I would have been able to finish my half ironman triathlon season this year, or run my marathon at the end of it. A brilliant result given I couldn't run 3 miles without my ankle collapsing when I first came to see them."

"After living with knee pain for 4 years I sought help from Stuart when the pain was beginning to get too much, and stopping me from training for a big ride I had planned. I had been trying to treat my knee myself believing that I would be living with the pain for the rest of my life. Stuart instantly diagnosed the problem and in the first few weeks I made more progress than I had done in the previous 4 years. 8 weeks after starting treatment with Stuart I spent 2 weeks in the French Alps culminating in joining 7500 other people cycling over 100 miles and 3 legendary Tour de France climbs in one day. Without Stuarts help I know this wouldn't have been possible, thank you.

"As a rugby player injuries are bound to occur. I should of gone to see Stuart earlier to sort out my knee ligament after I tweaked it in preseason training. He gave me expert treatment and loads of advice so that I was well aware of the time scale of my recovery and what I needed to do. Stuarts support gave me the confidence I needed and I progressed week by week. He made me well aware of supporting my knee and building strength. I built up my training and was back to full contact after 6weeks. I would definitely recommend Stuart and I still do my exercises :)"

Amanda S

"When I pulled my calf muscle I didn't think that I would be able run in the Cheltenham Half marathon, thankfully Stuart was able to help me. He provided an accurate injury diagnosis and rehabilitation plan. By following his advice and doing guided rehab in the gym I ran the half marathon and was pleased with my performance. Especially considering I didn't think I would make the start line! "

Paul F

"Whilst heavily training for my latest half marathon target time I unfortunately injured my hip. My initial hope that it would disappear miraculously was short lived and I initially didn't know where to turn. Fortunately a search of local running websites put me onto Stuart and Sarah at Straight Back Physio. I received a great combination of physio and advice to quickly get me back running again after just 6 weeks. I now back into full training again and whilst I had to miss my short term half marathon goal, I am on track training for my first full marathon in October."
