“I want to say a big thank you to Bronwyn for getting me back on my feet and keeping me going by regular video consultation through the lockdown period. The video consultation proved to be an excellent way to discuss the problems, receive advice and appropriate exercises. At each session we’ve discussed progress and reviewed my exercises. I even get to do some of the exercises in front of the camera. I have gone from managing to cycle 3 miles before pain kicked in to cycling 40 miles comfortably in a day. Had it not been for the opportunity to speak to Bronwyn and get advice by video consultation I’m not sure what state I would be in now.”

“I just wanted to drop you an email to say thanks for all your help last year.
I don’t think I realised when I last saw you that I might not need to come back in – I’ve still had some ups and downs but nothing major (I think I know the difference now) and I’m pretty happy managing things on my own now. My cricket ball is my best friend!
As much as I’d rather not gone a bit wonky last year, I’ve learnt so much and a lot of that was from your end, so thank you very, very much. Its almost a blessing that I had a bit of an issue. Its also great to know I have a good physio local to go to if anything happens in the future.
I’ve started a strength and training programme aimed at mountain bikers and its building on the strength work you got me doing (alot of bum, hip and back work, ouch!)”

“I just wanted to let you know that the core exercises have worked a treat, along with the bike fit.
No pain anymore and never been riding as strong or as fast. I feel I’m going into the Fred Whitton in my best form. Many thanks.”

“I can’t recommend John, Fiona and the team at Physiohaüs enough. I have managed to break myself with various injuries from endurance sport. Each time I have a thorough assessment with confident diagnosis of the problem, followed by a structured rehabilitation programme and overall come out the other end stronger whilst still maintaining fitness throughout.”

“I fractured my tibia plateau in April 2018 skiing in St Anton, grade 5 fracture so I did a good job, after surgery and then 3 months non weight bearing moving to partial weight bearing, I was struggling to imagine that I would ever be able to walk/ run or cycle or actually do anything ‘normally’ again. I was having NHS physio but didn’t feel I was progressing as fast as I would like or that I would ever progress not because they weren’t good at what they do, they don’t have the time and as it turned out such detailed knowledge and experience that Fiona had with my condition.I booked an appointment with Fiona at Physiohaus, the best decision I could have ever taken not just physically but psychologically too.
At my first visit she explained what had happened and that I would get better, but it would take a lot of hard work that was all I needed to hear. She told me it would take maybe 1 year to 18 months, after 7 months of monthly visits she released me back into the world alone to continue my hard work alone. I can cycle without any issues now, I am back to walking in the lakes and not everyone is over taking me, I haven’t quite mastered running yet, but I have no doubt that Fiona was right and that in 12 to 18 months I will be back to ‘normal’.
I cannot recommend her highly enough,if you have fractured your tibia plateau her knowledge of the fracture and how best to get you returned to normal is second to none, it takes work but you will be in safe hands”.
