It’s always great to hear about your experiences at Physio-logical, here are a selection of the lovely messages of thanks & praise we’ve received over the years.
I have had 2 sessions with Sandra at the Havant clinic for a long standing muscle problem in my calf that basically caused both legs to seize up completely after about a mile of walking.
Prior to this, I’d done 4 months of physio on the NHS, and didn’t seem to be getting anywhere near where I wanted to be. By the end of the first session, the extreme tightness had reduced significantly, and I was finding I could actually do a good distance pain free. Considering how long I’ve had this, and all the treatments I’ve had to try and resolve this including surgery, I was completely surprised by just how good things were, and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend getting an appointment here to anyone! - Mr H. April 2017
Our daughter does a lot of dance and started having painful flare-ups in her knee mid last year without any apparent injury, which seemed to come and go. When her place in Panto was at risk we knew we had to get to the bottom of the problem. We were offered an appt with Paul (Chineham) within days and watched him assess her and unpick the problem which was due to a weakness in her gluteus medius causing tortion at the knee. She was given exercises to strengthen her muscle and further exercises at a follow-up appt. This got her fit enough to dance at panto (oh yes it did!) and several months later she is still pain and problem free, and we know how to keep it that way. I have no hesitation in recommending. Thank you, Paul – Mrs G, March 2017
“Massive thank you to Paul at Physio-logical Chineham, I am finally free of chronic back pain after years of painkillers and hobbling around! Cannot believe how much better I am. Will let you know how my 5k goes!” - February 2017
“Paul gave me exercises that enabled me to use my shoulder fully and move it properly after a couple of years of not being able to. Much appreciated!” Mrs A, September 2016
“I was fortunate to be referred to Paul at Physio-Logical in Basingstoke, when i had trouble with my left knee and then my right knee. I found Paul to be very engaging and friendly, as well as being a excellent diagnostician. In both cases, he was able to identify the root cause of my pain and prioritise treatment that i could easily maintain on my own. Highly recommend!” Mr O, August 2016
“I have just completed a 100km hike over the South Downs. I was seeing Sandra for a few months before as during a 27km training walk I had terrible trouble with my hips. The hike was hard in lots of ways but I had not a single twinge from my hips the whole way. I would never have thought this was possible and I am hugely grateful.” Mrs S, July 2016
“I first saw Natalie with a severe pain in my foot that came on whilst running. After weeks of rest the pain would not shift, so I finally went to Physio-logical to see if they could help. Natalie very quickly figured out the pain was being caused by a nerve in my back, which no amount of just resting would sort. After a few treatment sessions I was able to ease back into running. I’ve gone from strength to strength with the help and treatment of Natalie and am pleased to say was able to complete my first marathon last month. I would highly recommend Physio-logical, and cannot thank them enough for getting me back running.” Mrs P, June 2016
“Thank you so much for everything you did for me, I’m very pleased with the service and treatment I received.” Mrs S, May 2016
“Paul is extremely knowledgeable and able to provide an excellent treatment plan based on direct and indirect symptoms and my lifestyle.” Mrs P, May 2016
“My physio Nehal has been very professional and friendly. I would recommend Physio-logical to anyone.” Mrs P, April 2016
“I had a great first session with Kate. She was friendly, professional, listened to my problems and worked on those areas without ignoring the other leg. At the end she explained what I needed to do to improve my flexibility. I will definitely be booking another session in a few weeks.” Mr A, April 2016
“Sandra located the problem quickly and helped resolve the pain just as speedily. Thank you” Mrs M, April 2016
“Sandra was great – reassured me I could be treated, gave me a few detailed exercises to do, which worked a treat, and then signed me off after two visits – all in all superb” Mrs A, April 2016
“I’m a regular gym goer so my wife brought me a voucher for a Sports Massage with Kate.
At the start of the appointment Kate asked if I had any troublesome areas. I’d had a pain in my shoulder for some time. As a result I had less confidence in that arm and it was starting to restrict the amount of weight I could lift. I told Kate about the problem and she asked me a few more questions before diagnosing what the problem was. She then spent the remainder of the session focusing on my shoulder. She warned me it may be a bit sore the next day but I should see an improvement after that. She also explained why my shoulder had started to hurt in the first place and gave me some advice, exercises and stretches to prevent the problem re-occurring. I’m pleased to say that following the appointment I have now been pain free for several months.
As a result, I will be going back to see Kate if I have any problems in the future. I’ve already recommended her to several friends and will continue to do so.” Mr M, February 2016
“Assessment of my lower back problem and full explanation of why I was suffering and the introduction to a series of exercises to significantly improve flexibility of my spine and increase muscle strength in the affected area. The treatment was good value for money and I would recommend to a friend.
Really excellent explanations of my situation from Paul and advice on how to improve my spine, joints and muscles now and for the future. I would fully recommend Pauls ability to assess and suggest treatments.” Mr L, January 2016
“After numerous visits to my Doctor over a two month period due to the pain in my shoulder and getting no where I was given Physio-logical’s number to contact. After 5 visits the difference is incredible. I’m now pain free and have almost full movement. Can fully recommend, very pleased.” Mrs M, December 2015
“I’ve been seeing Kate, on a regular basis, for well over a year for a deep tissue sports massage. Kate is very professional and knowledgeable!
My body is under constant and changing stresses, as a fitness instructor, and her massage techniques deal with any niggles and knots and keep me literally on my feet…
If you exercise regularly, or suffer from any tightness in your muscles I’d highly recommend a massage with Kate.” Mrs B, December 2015
“After 6 months of not having full movement in my shoulder I visited Physio-logical. 5 sessions later it’s like I never had the problem and no pain at all. Highly recommend.” Mr A, November 2015
“I recently consulted Physio-logical because of severe pain in my leg, from my buttock down the outside of my leg to the calf, this was so severe that walking was difficult and doing remedial exercises impossible. After an examination they explained that the piriformis muscle had contracted and was pressing on the sciatic nerve.
After some deep massage, she suggested some different exercises. After doing these exercises and returning a few days later, I was almost pain free. Another deep massage later, I felt relaxed and relieved. I must add that I am a woman of mature years and found Natalie kind and considerate and she has healing hands!” Mrs H, November 2015
“After various other treatments and over a year of lower back pain I’ve had 3 physio sessions with Paul, followed his advice and have done my exercises and no more pain at all! Couldn’t be happier! Thank you physio-logical!” Mrs R, October 2015
“Physio-logical has treated me for neck and lower back problems on two separate occasions. They are thorough in their analysis of problems and hands on with treatment which means you get onto a recovery track quickly. A great physiotherapy practice, and I won’t go anywhere else.” Mr H, October 2015
“Thanks to Physio-logical for the excellent sports massage. All relaxed for the Chichester half this weekend” Mr R, October 2015
“I thought you might be interested to know that the muscle pain in the right hip that you dealt with for me has now completely gone. I have been doing the balancing exercise and stretches every day since I last came to see you” Mr T, August 2015
” After 2 years of home therapy and swimming plus 2 different physio’s I finally made an appointment at Physio-logical for treatment. The therapist was very kind, understanding and told me I wouldn’t like her after treatment. She massaged my knee and YES it hurt but after 3 weeks I rode my keep fit bike first time since surgery over 2 years. I am over the moon and recommend this wonderful lady Thanks one very happy client” Mrs L, July 2015
“I want to take this opportunity to thank you so very much for all the wonderful help your physio has given to me. You have helped my neck condition tremendously!! Thank you very much and for all your kind understanding too.” Mrs S, June 2015
“I have been suffering with sciatica for a couple of weeks before seeing physio-logical. I have been impressed with the advice and treatment which I have been receiving. I now understand what has happened and what I need to do to stop it from coming back . Would recommend them to anyone.” Mr D, June 2015
“I have been having treatment with Physio-logical for the last 10 months suffering with lower back problems and strong pain at times, Sandra managed to sort my problem very quickly and since I have been fine because I have followed her advice.
“I am a 59 year old man who went to the doctor with a very painful right knee that was preventing me from working in the garden especially digging my beloved Veg. plot. Also I was unable to drive very far without significant pain to the point I was having to straighten my leg frequently to ease the pain or even stop and gently flex my knee until I was OK to carry on.
I was walking with a pronounced limp and the doctor was wanting me to go for X-rays and other investigative treatment to identify the issue, however I have medical Insurance and to speed things up I decided to go through the Insurance.
My insurance company sent me straight to Physiotherapy after discussing my symptoms and guessing I had a meniscal tear. Physio-Logical was recommended as the most local physiotherapy clinic to me so I went along full of scepticism that I was wasting my time and feeling I would end up needing some form of surgical procedure to rectify my problem.
I was greeted by Natalie March on arrival and instantly put at my ease as I had explained to me what the approach would be and how the cause of my pain could be identified and that if it was felt Physio was the correct treatment or not. This went by way of explanation of what a meniscal tear was through use of an anatomical model of a knee and how physiotherapy could heal it.
Within two weeks (two visits and two weeks of prescribed exercise) it became clear that the treatment was having a very beneficial effect and my scepticism evaporated as my knee continued to improve. After the initial 4 weeks it was agreed although I had improved greatly there was still further benefits to be gained by both continuing treatment and changing my exercise regime.
Today after 8 weeks of treatment and exercise I can say my knee is fully healed with just a slight residual muscle imbalance as a result of walking for months trying to alleviate the pain, so I have adopted the prescribed exercises as just part of my daily routine as this will help safeguard both my knees from going forward – and I really do appreciate being able to run, drive, dig kneel etc. with no discomfort.
A big thank you to Natalie and Physio-Logical who have really made a difference to me and allowed me to regain confidence in my own fitness and shown me that joint damage does not automatically require surgery.” John, April 2015
“Acupuncture has been very beneficial for me. I have Beckers Muscular Dystrophy and began to suffer with lower back pain a few years ago. Natalie at Physio-logical suggested trying acupuncture which I was sceptical about at first but was willing to try anything. Since then I have found it to be the best treatment for pain relief and stiffness. I also find it to be very relaxing and stress free. Would highly recommend this to anyone in pain!” David, January 2015
”My 8 year old son is a very keen gymnast. On the Monday before his last competition he was complaining that his right wrist was aching. By the Wednesday his wrist was hurting more so his coach suggested we got it looked at. My husband took him to the walk in clinic Thursday , and they weren’t particularly helpful. We needed to get him seen by a physio urgently so I contacted Physiological on the Thursday and an appointment was made for Friday at 8 in the morn with Sandra. After a short consultation and examination to find out where the sprain was Sandra mobilised and worked her amazing technique and Ash walked out having full use of his wrist …..Good as New! Ash then made it to his competition, performed amazingly, and came away with a Bronze, a Silver, and a Gold medal. I would recommend Physiological to anyone of any age. They are friendly, always available for advice/ appointments and above all Utterly Awesome”. Clare, October 2014
“Kate, sports massage therapist, was very friendly and she worked wonders on my back. My lower back pain almost instantly went. Thanks so much, I will be returning to keep my back 100% for training”. Sam, Aug 2014
“I have been seeing Nehal in Chineham and I wanted to let you know how lovely she is and how much she has helped me.
She is very approachable and takes great pride in helping people to achieve their goals without causing damage.
She has really helped with my painful muscles and taught me how to look after myself to hopefully avoid too many return
visits! Thank you very much”. Penny, June 2014
“I went to Physio-logical, after having seen two consultants and another physio. None of whom could do anything for me. I have arthritis in the upper vertebrae of my neck and this causes severe pain in the head and also greatly restricts movement. The consultants could only suggest more and stronger pain killers. Natalie, with her wonderful hands, began to bring relief and slowly greater mobility in my head and neck. I did , at one time, think I would have to give up driving. That, because of Natalie, has proved not to be the case.
Now, after some time, I have managed to greatly reduce the medication and at times, have been pain free. At the beginning of the treatment, Natalie offered hope, where there had been none before. I cannot thank her enough for my enhanced quality of life” Mrs B, Nov 2013
“I would like to thank Physio-logical for my fantastic treatment. After having my second baby I had a re-occurrant lower back problem. Physio-logical have got me to a point were my pain has been managed and my mobility improved. Even though the treatment hasn’t fully rectified my problem Physio-logical have been able to advise me on my next course of action. I am 99.9% more mobile and 99.9% pain free. Thank you I never thought I would get to this point!” Mrs C, Sept 2013
“Excellent clinic, very professional and couldn’t do enough for me. Didn’t try and pester me in to making more appointments either which was a bonus. I would recommend this clinic to anyone!” Mr G, Sept 2013
“ I would like to thank you for getting me to the start line for “IRONMAN” Frankfurt on 7th July 2013. Without your continuing treatment it wouldn’t have been possible. I achieved what I thought was going to be the impossible finishing Ironman Frankfurt, I finished in 14:38:58. Once again many thanks.” Mr T, August 2013
“I would like to thank Physio-logical for the excellent treatment I received on my knee. I had trouble even getting up stairs but after a few weeks it was on the mend. I would definitely recommend Physio-logical”. Mr P, August 2013
“After having a baby last year, I found that I had very limited outward rotation from the groin in one of my legs. My doctor dismissed it as a strained muscle, but I knew it was something more. Physio-logical instantly realised that my pelvis was slightly out of place and began effective treatment immediately. After a few sessions of manipulation and strengthening exercises, my pelvis and leg rotation were back to normal. Thank you so much for the fantastic treatment I received. I would highly recommend Physio-logical to anyone. I found them to be professional, friendly, knowledgeable and most of all effective.” Mrs E, July 2013
“Well, what can I say, I came to Physio-logical with a painful calf injury way too close to the challenge I had set myself that being the Brighton marathon. Your positivity never faltered and you provided me with immediate treatment and advice in and out of hours. You worked hard to maximise my chances of running the distance and I listened to everything you told me to do, every exercise at all the times you advised and I made it to the start line. I made it round every mile albeit with a little pain relief, without everything you did, it would sure have been a different story. Thank you so much for helping me achieve the hardest but most satisfying thing I have ever done in my life”. Mrs R, May 2013
“I came to Physio-logical in December with an injured Achilles one week after accepting a charity place for the Brighton marathon, and one week before I was due to start training, certainly bad timing! Your ongoing professional, articulate and tailored advice that allowed me to continue running, as part of an active recovery strategy, was absolutely key to not only getting me to the startline, but getting fit at the perfect time. This in turn allowed me to complete the marathon, but also smash my PB”. Mr C, April 2013
“Thank you for the excellent treatment I have received. It is amazing to have regained full range of movement in my shoulder and be pain free for the first time in two years especially as I thought it was something I was going to have to live with. I would definitely recommend Physio-logical and have done so”. Mr T, March 2013
“I would like to thank Physio-logical for their first class treatment I have had over the past few months, after spraining my ankle playing netball. The speed in which you got me back on the netball court playing was amazing. The treatment and advice on strengthening exercises have helped greatly in aiding my healing and preventing recurrence. I would definitely recommend Physio-logical to anyone looking to rehabilitate a sports injury”. Mrs W, Feb 2013
“Thank you for all the hard work you have put in to getting me back to running. I never thought I would ever run again with my knee problem, but with your expertise I am able to do much more than I could before I came to see you. Once again thank you so much I am always recommending you to people when they say they have an injury or pain”. Mrs W, Nov 2012
“I would like to express my greatest thanks for the job you’ve done with all my “troubles”, I am amazed with your knowledge, experience and speed in reducing sport injuries and dysfunctions!” Olga Maslivets, Olympic Finalist Aug 2012
“I had my first run event of the year, on average I ran 20 seconds a mile quicker over 5 miles than have for years. Really took me by surprise! So thanks for all your help so far, strength sessions and grass fartleks are really paying off and in just 12 weeks”. Mrs L, June 2012
“Thank you for the first class treatment I received whilst attending your clinic after the car accident I was involved in, especially the acupuncture I received was very beneficial”. Mr B, May 2012
“Physio-logical is an extremely knowledgeable and trustworthy physiotherapy clinic. Having gone to see them with two different issues, they soon set me on the road to recovery through treatment and a plan (in the form of exercises), to aid my healing and prevent recurrence. I would definitely recommend Physio-logical to anyone looking to rehabilitate a sports injury”. Mr S, May 2012
“I would just like to say thank you for the treatment I have had over the past few months. My back is now fully recovered, and the stretches and exercises continue to do wonders. I also appreciate your approach to on-going maintenance, it being offered but you also happy with an “ad-hoc calls” approach should it prove necessary (hence no pressure for what might be perceived as “regular income”!). I know that our sailors will be in very capable hands in 2012″. Mr W, Feb 2012
“Can’t praise Physio-logical enough. I went to see them with a pain that started in my lower back and going down through buttocks to thigh. Going from sitting to standing was extremely painful. They soon assessed the problem and began treatment, consisting of massage, manipulation and some exercises to do at home. After 4 visits I am now pain free and feel a new man!! I hope they can do the same to the Olympic sailing team!! Well done and thank you”. Mr M, Dec 2011
