I first started using First Physio in the autumn of 2013, when I was having knee pain. At the first appointment, I was given a full body examination and it was explained very thoroughly why I was experiencing my pain, I was provided with exercises and given treatment to aid my recovery, as well as advice on managing my pain for the long term.
In 2014, I broke my ankle and did not hesitate in seeking my physio treatment from First Physio again. At this time I also saw an alternative therapist at the practice, my therapist was on holiday and the seamless transition from one therapist to another was amazing. It was as if the alternative therapist had been my therapist all along, continuity of care was delivered as promised.
I would not hesitate to recommend the First Physio team to anyone and the appointments are great too, from early morning to late at night.
It is not very often you get such good service.
Following a knee replacement, my other knee became painful. First Physio provided the treatment and advice I needed making it possible to continue my golf for two more years before a second operation was necessary at the beginning of this year.
I have to thank them for the support, friendly advice and preparatory treatment given at this time. Further post-operative visits are giving more knee movement and increasing my confidence in walking, giving me every hope that I will soon be returning to the golf course.
I was referred by my Consultant to First Physio for physiotherapy treatment following a fracture to my shoulder (greater tuberosity). I was given specific exercises, very helpful advice, as well as ultrasound and acupuncture to my shoulder area. The physiotherapist was always so patient and informative throughout the sessions. My shoulder is improving and I am confident that this will continue as I continue with the exercises I have been given.
Thank you to First Physio for excellent treatment.
I first went to First Physio approximately 20 years ago after having fallen and damaging my coccyx’s. The treatment they provided resolved the problem very quickly.
Since then I have needed their expertise on a number of occasions for problems with my back. After having to have a spinal fusion, First Physio helped by giving me exercises and advice, so that I could then obtain full fitness.
I have always found them to be very professional, but approachable – all stages of the treatment are explained in an easy to understand way.
I have recommended First Physio to friends, who have always been pleased with the service they had been given.
First Physio were initially recommended by my Consultant when I started having aches in my shoulder.
Since then, First Physio identified arthritis in my hip, (when I thought I was suffering from sciatica for couple of years), which in turn needed surgery. A Specialist in Hip surgery was recommended and I am now pain free.
Their post-surgery rehabilitation was excellent and professional. Any questions I had the team explained in detail and encouraged me whenever I felt low.
They have also recently started acupuncture, which has also helped immensely with my pain management in my back.
The Physiotherapists are friendly and professional and I would not hesitate to recommend First Physio to anyone who should ask me.
