Dear Louise and Dominic, I want to express my deepest gratitude for the incredible support and guidance I have received during my physiotherapy journey. Louise, thank you, you prepared me for surgery to repair my ACL. I felt confident and reassured by your guidance and your support, you challenged me which really helped prepare me for my post-surgery rehab. Post surgery I was under the care of Dominic, and during our first session I uttered the words, "Am I ever going to walk again?", you gave me a clear progression pathway which helped me navigate and overcome each challenging exercise. Your knowledge and expertise reassured me and kept me determined to keep pushing forward. Exceptional professionals!!

Very impressed with professional advice and treatment received from Claire Richards which has improved my injury problem. Also a mention for Jane - your receptionist - who I find to be polite and helpful. I will be signing up for 3 x hydrotherapy sessions towards mid March. Thank you for your help.

I’ve been in extreme lower back pain.Advised by Johnathan to see Anna.To date have had an initial consultation & one session with her. She is very mindful & sensitive to the pain that I’m experiencing & appreciates how disabling it’s making my everyday life. Together we’re working on getting my problem resolved. I’m seeing her privately & still have more appointments to attend.All the Thorpes staff are very helpful, attentive & organised. Would thoroughly recommend Thorpes for any physiotherapy.

I’m so glad I had my appointment on 26/09/23 as you were amazing. You gave me a letter to take to A&E as I may of had CES. I did indeed. I had a spine operation on that Friday. Thank you for being so professional and looking after me.

The place was very easy to find and car parking was available. The administration was good regarding the appointments with reminder messages. My problem was soon diagnosed by the physiotherapist with a good explanation of what was going on. I was given ultrasound treatment and advice on appropriate exercises to carry out. I strongly recommend Thorpes Physiotherapy.
