WHAT TO EXPECT
When you enter the clinic you will be greeted by a friendly sports massage therapist. They will take a full history of your condition, but ask you some questions to get to know you. What you want to achieve from your sports massage and then perform treatment. The depth of sports massage varies from individual to individual, so our therapist will look for feedback from you on how firm they need to be. This can vary from a relaxing massage to deep tissue work – it all depends on you. It may be that you would benefit from the expertise of another professional in the clinic and in that case your physio may discuss you with the other clinician, or arrange for you to see them too.
RECOVER. MAINTAIN. PERFORM.
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!
I saw Tom and very quickly booked a second appointment! He is professional and very knowledgeable. I am confident he can resolve my issues.
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.
Excellent service again. Treatment is coming along nicely. Many thanks
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.
Josh has been great on helping me recover from more than one injury very quickly and efficiently. I didn't know a great deal about injury prevention or recovery but Josh has been really informative and helped me massively in understanding what I can do to prevent injury in the future. Highly recommend!
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
Josh correctly diagnosed my issue and immediately referred me to a consultant, his expertise meant I was able to avoid surgery and reduce my recovery time significantly. Physio and treatment still ongoing but expertly delivered by josh with great advice and realistic expectations which has ensured I stick to the plan with an achievable goal for resuming normal activity
We have been using Reflex-18 for over a year now. On and off the entire family is using their extensive services. Josh and his team are all very professional and helpful. The best of all our aches and pains are treated effectively and always diagnosed properly. We recommend them to all our friends and would never switch to another physio provider.
I had to take my daughter to see Josh recently as she was experiencing knee pain whilst running. The treatment, advice and care she received were first class and have helped her recovery to running fitness. I would not hesitate to recommend Josh to anyone who needs help in terms of injury or just good advice.
