"I would have no problem recommending Sarah"
Sarah is an extremely approachable and understanding physiotherapist. Sarah guided me back to full fitness from a hamstring injury over the course of 6 months, with tailored rehab programmes that she regularly updated based on my progress. I would have no problem going back to Sarah for another injury.

"I had several injuries which Sarah helped me through"
Throughout the 2019/20 rugby season I had several injuries which Sarah helped me through, most notably a grade two AC joint ligament tear. Sarah helped me from a point where I was struggling with the pain and had minimal strength to pass a ball, back to feeling 100%. Other injuries which Sarah has helped me through include Achilles tendon irritation and an ankle ligament sprain . Sarah has always been a complete professional when dealing with me and seems to diagnose any issues very quickly. I also appreciated how personable she was throughout.

"I am incredibly grateful for Sarah and her expertise"
I visited Sarah after sustaining an injury to my shoulder during a gym session. My range of motion was significantly reduced and I had lost the majority of my strength in terms of overhead pressing. Sarah was able talk me through the injury, detail the necessary rehab exercises and treatment to improve the injury, while also working with me to design an exercise programme in the interim that allowed me to train. The result was that after a few sessions, I returned to the gym with full range of motion and strength restored.
