"After suffering from lower back pain for several years and trying alternative therapies I was advised to see Alison. I must admit that I didn’t think physiotherapy could help with lower back pain, a serious misconception. After only two visits to Alison she identified what was causing my back pain and gave me muscle activation techniques so that I could help myself. I can’t recommend her highly enough, apart from the fact that she has eased my back pain, she is such a knowledgeable professional, who genuinely wants to get you onto the road to recovery as quickly as possible. You never feel as though you’re just another number and she goes out of her way to help as much as she possibly can. Thank you so much!"
"The treatment I received was handled in a professional manner and explained thoroughly. The appointments fitted exactly with my requirements. I will use Birchwood physio in the future if needed!"
“I’ve used many physios over the years but I felt Alison was the most knowledgeable in pin pointing & treating my issues immediately & effectively. Great booking service also.”
"Very patient with children in establishing diagnosis. Very impressed with treatment and information provided.
“Thanks a lot for the excellent treatment. I would strongly recommend your physiotherapists to others.”
“I initially held off going to see a physio until I basically couldn’t put one leg in front of the other. However on a Friday afternoon I admitted defeat & called them & Andy very kindly saw me at very short notice. After one session I could actually walk pretty much properly again & within a few more sessions I was able to move even more freely & I am now back running. Thanks again Andy, you are a bit of a miracle worker!”
“My first and somewhat sceptical experience of physiotherapy with Alison was brilliant. My back pain and ease of movement improved dramatically after just one treatment and after my second I'm almost back to normal. Having suffered back pain a number of times over the years I only wish I'd found Alison sooner - lovely lady, great results.”
“I have had treatment with Alison at different periods over a number of years as part of managing a variety of health conditions. She is by far the most talented & intuitive Physio I have had. She is very well informed on a variety of techniques so always has something up her sleeve for treating a complicated client like myself. She has treated family members suffering with injuries & acute conditions, for which she has been equally successful. I recommend her 100%.”
“Having been into sports & fitness all my life, I have been having physio to treat a variety of injuries & physical problems at Birchwood since I moved down here in 2003. Alison is a true professional who genuinely cares & takes pride in getting her patients back to full health & fitness as quickly as possible. I would unequivocally recommend Birchwood to anyone requiring physiotherapy. Thanks for keeping me running, training & dancing Alison!”
“I was referred to the Birchwood Private Physiotherapy Practice by my insurance to get treatment for whiplash I suffered caused by a car accident in January 2016. The treatment was so good & effective, that I have decided to stay with the practice for regular preventative treatment for my neck & back (I am a dentist). My sessions are usually with Gemma, but I also had one with Alison, & I can honestly say that both are outstanding physiotherapists! Highly recommended!”
“I first had treatment with Alison after being referred by my GP for a Plantar Faciitis condition. This was very painful, was making it difficult & uncomfortable to get around & a couple of years trying insoles, seeing Chiropractors & doctors had given only slight relief. Within seconds though, Alison had identified the root cause & set about correcting it. From the first visit things were different & a few more banished the symptoms. I continue to see Alison for maintenance tweaks that an old body finds so beneficial. I cannot praise or thank Alison enough for curing me & giving so freely & generously her time & knowledge.”
