What To Expect

When you come to gait analysis appointment at Reflex-18 Sports Injury Hub in Colchester, we will perform a full assessment, tailored specifically to your needs. Then, using the RS Footscan technology, we will take some scans of your feet while you are standing still and either walking or running. This will give us instant data along with graphical representations, so that we can talk you through exactly how your foot moves and what this means to your risk of injury.

If necessary, we can then design custom orthotics for you, based on the data we collect. These insole designs are then sent to the podiatrists at orthotic experts Phits, based in Belgium, who will check the design and produce a 3D printed orthotic, for whatever shoe you want to use it in. Within two weeks, you will return to Reflex-18 Sports Injury Hub to have the insole fitted. You are then good to go, knowing you have exactly the right insoles to support your feet.

  • 5 star review  I’ve been to see josh on multiple occasions both for hip problem and a torn calf muscle. For both sports injuries Josh has been excellent, extremely accommodating and his advice and guidance has allowed me to get back to football as quick as possible. I will continue to use reflex18.

  • 5 star review  Really pleased with the treatment received from Josh at Reflex-18 for a frozen shoulder, culminating to a long kayak trip today. At one point, pre treatment, I did wonder if that would be possible again as I couldn’t even put a coat on without assistance. And importantly, I felt COVID-19 safe throughout, witnessing thorough cleaning pre and post appointments. Many thanks Josh. 👍🏼

  • 5 star review  In October 2020 I was diagnosed with a ruptured Achilles tendon which I had left undiagnosed and treated for a few months as I was aware what medical intervention would entail. Eventually I sought medical advice and was told I was facing an operation to reconnect the tendon using harvested tendon from my big toe which was going to result in a lot of time incapacitated and a long struggle to regain fitness afterwards. However, the surgeons gave me the opportunity of having physiotherapy first, to see if that would work before a final decision was taken. As a result I visited Josh in November 2020 and 6 months later I am virtually walking normally and can weight bear on my bad ankle again. The final steps in my recovery can be carried out now that I can get outdoors walking again and also my gym being open. I cannot thank him enough for what he physically did for me and also his positive attitude in dealing with my problem. I would have no hesitation in recommending both him and Reflex 18. Many thanks.

  • 5 star review  I was recommended to see Alice by a friend and although I've only had one session, I am more confident in myself that with her help I can recover after a serious injury. Its going to take time but I know I'm in the right place! Mick Harty

  • 5 star review  I saw Tom and very quickly booked a second appointment! He is professional and very knowledgeable. I am confident he can resolve my issues.

  • 5 star review  Both myself and my son have been seeing Josh for various injuries/issues over the last couple of years, which on occasions has been complimented with other members of his team. I can’t speak highly enough of the service Josh provides. From the initial advice & diagnosis through to the treatment and exercises recommended by him, the whole experience is first class. An added benefit is the gym that the clinic offers as part of your rehabilitation and further enhances the business and helps to set Josh above any other physio I have previously visited. In a nutshell I would have no hesitation in recommending Josh and his colleagues to anyone requiring physio and related treatments.

    thumb Stuart Paris
  • 5 star review  I came to the Reflex with an Achilles injury I had had for over a year that wouldn’t go away. Josh has supported me back to activity and I hope to continue my progress back to more things I used to enjoy over time. Josh and the team were supportive throughout, taking the time to consider the person as a whole and reassuring me. Any injuries in the future, I would feel extremely confident to return to the Reflex. The facilities and set up are great - just what is needed. The teams wide variety of experience and knowledge makes them highly sought after and you feel in safe hands. Thank you very much.

    thumb Alexandra Monk
  • 5 star review  I developed a severe back problem over Christmas to a point where I couldn’t walk unaided. Thinking it was going to be a long recovery ahead I have been amazed by the work Josh does - he has fantastic knowledge and I felt I could fully trust him - 4 appointments in and I feel far better than I thought I would. Fantastic physio!

    thumb Layla Drewell
  • 5 star review  Best physiotherapist I’ve seen. Over the years I’ve seen a few physio’s and I can say that the physio I saw here knew what they were on about and gave me the help I needed in the space of about 3 weeks to a month of treatment for my injury! Would definitely recommend to anyone like myself who is very much into there exercise and does a competitive sport!
