If you’re looking for physiotherapist, and especially a sports physiotherapist, I can’t recommend Jonny and Salopia Health & Performance highly enough. Having previously had ‘standard’ treatments on an injury with no improvement, Jonny did an in depth analysis of the injury beyond anything I have had before, and built a sports focused strengthening rehab programme which has helped me recover and get back to playing. To be able to get an injury treated and then a programme to rehab correctly to come back stronger is ideal and I would highly recommend to anyone with a sporting related injury.
