I recently injured my neck and saw Kevin four times in total. I can’t recommend him highly enough. He saw me very promptly and I was immediately impressed with his knowledge and explanation. He was incredibly thorough and I saw a significant improvement after my first session. He gave me useful exercises to perform which also helped and, at the end of my sessions, I felt completely back to normal. Very professional, first class service from the first phone call to discharge.

I had been suffering headaches on and off for many months which were steadily worsening. On a recommendation I booked to see Kevin unsure of how physiotherapy could really help my head. After a very detailed assessment Kevin explained exactly how pain actually works (fascinating!), where my headaches were stemming from and that I need not worry as no damage was happening to me. This was a great relief as I had been imagining the worst! After only four treatments of acupuncture, hands on therapy and exercises I was completely pain free. I only wish I had known about Kevin sooner as he really is an expert who cares.

I had been having problems with my knee. Self- medicating was essentially just hiding the problem. All that I was doing by way of trying to put things right was in fact simply making things worse. If I had known then what I know now… anyway on a friend’s recommendation I went along to see Kevin expecting the cash register to ring, and for some crumpled bespectacled old grim faced self righteous person to be there, nagging me about my excesses and the harm I was doing to myself, and to stop, despite it being one of my main sources of pleasure. Instead I found a (reasonably) young bloke, on my wavelength, sporty, active and understanding of what makes sports people tick. No preaching. Just a shared desire to put things right. After about 6 visits Kevin told me that he had done as much for my injury as he could do, and that whilst he could continue to take payment for more visits and treatment, he did not see any real benefit to me in so doing. I don’t go to the doctor’s very easily. I fight against any form of medical treatment, irrationally I know. But if I were to need treatment I would go back to Kevin.

Kevin has treated me for neck and back pain and I found these sessions really effective. He is an extremely skilled physio, and is dedicated to getting patients back to activity and pain free! He is passionate about treating patients holistically and his approach to treatment really works!

I developed hip, knee and back pain after taking up long distance running. It got to the point where I was unable to do any running at all and I was very frustrated. I contacted Kevin and was able to be reviewed very quickly. He took a very thorough history of my symptoms and also performed a very detailed examination. Kevin has a broad range of experience and I was really pleased that he identified the problem almost immediately. After one session, I already noted a marked improvement and I was able to go back to regular running not long afterwards. Kevin was extremely professional and compassionate throughout my treatment. I would not hesitate in recommending him.

I had very painful calves and Achilles tendonitis from running and high intensity training that were so painful they hurt when I walked upstairs. A friend recommended Kevin who saw me, assessed me, diagnosed me and started treating me immediately. He initially dry-needled me; although it was not nice at the time, after three session I had no pain going up stairs any more. Two further sessions of hands-on therapy and an exercise programme and I was back to my best (actually better!). Top man who knows his game.

I’d had a bad back for a while and Pilates seemed to sort it out. When I gave that up it came back with a vengeance and started impacting on my half marathon training. It took just 2 sessions with Kevin to sort me out and I have never looked back since. His straight talking manner plus his efficient and effective treatment was just what I needed to get me back up and training. I would (and do) recommend him to all of my friends and family.

“Stuart is a hugely empathetic person and a dedicated clinician. I cannot emphasise enough how well he listens and interacts with people; I recommend you find out for yourself. Top man doing great work in a challenging but important field. Keep up the good work, Stuart.”
Things are pretty amazing now… my confidence is back and I’m back to my old self after a long absence. Thanks for your help: I genuinely feel I wouldn’t be in this position if I hadn’t took the step to chat with you. It’s also having a positive impact at work.
I would never have thought therapy would have made such a difference to my life… both personal and the impact it’s had on our family. My anxiety is much better and I continue to use your “quick relaxation methods” you taught me whenever I start to feel nervous. BTW I’m also going abroad this year – who’d have thought you’d have been able to help me get on a plane!? Thanks again, warmest regards…
Thank you for helping me out of depression. You will never know how much you helped me. I can’t recommend your service enough
Thanks a lot Stuart! Just getting back in to the UK after my fight and I feel a lot more positive about the performance! I didn’t feel physically drained and I went in the ring determined to win! It will be great to work with you on some more methods in the coming weeks! Looking forward to moving forward with you on my team!

Your strategies have helped me get the most out of my training – its also given me a new love for the game and helped me develop the winning mindset that I needed, My head is now as strong as my backhand! 🙂

Excellent understanding of what I needed as a long distance runner with great advice on stretches specific to my needs. Knowledgeable, friendly and easy to understand.

Resolved a series of niggling issues that had been getting worse as my training sessions progressed … thankfully pain free and ready for my next Marathon thanks to Conrad.

After injuring my shoulder I used Conrad to help get my body back into shape and keep the tightness from becoming problematic. He was aware of my need to heal quickly and continue to train, and gave me great advice on how to help myself to heal quicker.
JC, Professional kickboxer and Personal Trainer.
After a period of months off from the gym after a hamstring injury and a couple of failed return attempts I saw Conrad to help fix me. He diagnosed the issue as being related to a back injury I’d almost forgotten about, helped to release the tension and gave me a series of stretches to keep me from suffering the same issue again. The results speak for themselves, can’t recommend him highly enough.

After literally years of pain and discomfort and after trying unsuccessfully just about everything available to eradicate my veruccas, I came across an advert for a treatment offered by Gosforth Physio and Wellness. At first it seemed terrifying as it was called ‘needling’ and it said a local anaesthetic was required but, although I was apprehensive, by this stage I was prepared to try anything! I need not have worried, however….my Podiatrist, Jamie Ollett, was both professional and sympathetic and he immediately put me at ease. The actual treatment turned out to be straightforward and painless but most importantly, now, six months later, my horrible veruccas have completely disappeared! If you are suffering with veruccas I would unreservedly recommend you get in touch with Jamie at Gosforth Physio and Wellness – you really don’t need to suffer for years like I did!

Despite regular treatment by a chiropodist, I had suffered from foot-related problems for many years (broken & black toenails, frequent twisting of ankles). A friend suggested I contact Jamie at Gosforth Physio for an assessment. He treated my feet and suggested a pair of custom-made insoles to deal with flat feet causing over-pronation. This has proved a resounding success and I am now able to comfortably walk for as long as I have time: 10 to 15 kms on almost every day of the year. In addition there is a noticeable improvement to my posture. I am very pleased with the outcome and have just ordered a second pair of insoles. His advice was again excellent and I would like to thank and recommend him.
