10/10 – Highly Recommended
Claire has been my physiotherapist for the past 18months following the dislocation of my shoulder and subsequent stabilisation surgery. During this time Claire has been fantastic in her work, providing a quality of treatment one would be hard pressed to find anywhere else. She takes the time to not only understand one's condition from a physical side but also a psychological side; fully engaging with one as a patient whilst explaining the underlying reason behind her treatment plans/recommendations. This has meant in my case that not only have I made a swift and strong recovery post-op, but I have also been able to overcome much of the anxiety around using my shoulder to its fullest thanks to her work. I, therefore, would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone seeking physiotherapy for injuries/post-operation work such as my own.
…….Place to go
Big thanks to Birgit for saving my sanity following 12 weeks of non-weight bearing, due to a tibial plateau fracture and subsequent surgery. My situation was complicated in that I currently live in Slovakia and all rehab centres were closed due to Covid 19. Birgit stepped in with video consultations and great advice on how to get some strength and range of movement back into my knee. If you need physio then this is the place to go, the care received for this, and previous injuries has been excellent.
Heartlands is an excellent physio. Thoroughly recommend them.
Thank you again
I just wanted to take a moment to update you with my knee health and thank you again for the support you provided. I thought this update might benefit to the people in the same situation as me. I’ve been going to the gym since Feb’ this year and doing all sort of cardio and strength training. Also, I’ve started playing badminton twice in a week since August’ mid this year (a year after my surgery) and also started going to karate since 4 weeks back. So, everything seems to be good so far and I hope it stays the same way.
…Thank you so much Birgit
I can not recommend Heartlands Physiotherapy Clinic highly enough, I went in 3 weeks ago to see Birgit with an extremely painful foot, after the initial consultation Birgit diagnosed it as Plantar Faciitis, I had heard horror stories that this condition could take months to heal, I am a keen runner so this was not good news to me however after 3 weeks of valuable advise, support, my foot being taped and a stretching program I am now able to walk pain free and am even starting to run again (slowly) thank you so much Birgit.
…. I don’t think I could have recovered as quickly as I did without Birgit’s help
I’ve been taking physio sessions from Heartland therapy for over 6 months now to recover from my ACL ligament surgery (post and pre surgery). I found it very helpful and excellent value for money. All the therapist are very helpful, qualified and supportive. Specially, Birgit helped me a lot with my recovery – I don’t think I could have recovered as quickly as I did without her help. She’s very dynamic, energetic and quick thinker when providing therapy. In every session she’d ask you to try so many things to see what works and what not, and to evaluate your situation and treat accordingly. I think she genuinely put a lot of efforts in each session and I hats off her for that. Thank you so much again Heartlands Physiotherapy for all your help. I wish you guys all the best.
……new riding position feels great
The Bike fit was a great way to check I am not causing any long term problems, due to the wrong riding positions. Been out over the weekend, the new riding position feels great, and I managed to increased my average speed.
Strong and Injury Free !
One of the athletes I train has been going to see Claire over the last year and has managed to stay strong and injury free all year allowing him to take 4 seconds off his 800 metre running time this season. We are very thankful for her support!
…I had no hesitation in turning to Heartlands Physiotherapy!
Having previously been treated by Claire for a knee problem, when my wife needed rehabilitation after discharge from hospital following surgery to remove a brain tumour, I had no hesitation in turning to Heartlands Physiotherapy. Claire was very accommodating, initially treating my wife at home and then at the Daventry Clinic. The treatment throughout was caring and best of all, personal; both my wife and I really appreciated the thought put into her care. We would certainly recommend Heartlands Physiotherapy as the place to go; well worth travelling the extra mile, wherever you live. Google Review
…Back to full fitness!
Just want to thank you again for your help in getting me back to fitness. Hockey training is now in full swing and I have played my first match last weekend with no problems. Have also spent the summer riding daily and eventing.
…the best £40.00 I have spent.
I am just writing to say how grateful I am to Sarah for showing me the Active Cycle of Breathing Techniques and other exercises for my lungs. I have been struggling for many years and the hospital has never suggested these exercises, which help to keep the lungs clear. I had a second appointment with her, in which she showed my husband how to do percussion, which will be very useful when I have a chest infection. Sarah printed off leaflets from the internet for me, showing various exercises, she was very helpful and this helps me to keep my lungs a bit clearer of phlegm. I would not hesitate to come back and see her. My first consultation was £40.00, and was the best £40.00 I have spent. I would recommend anyone who is struggling with a lung condition to set aside some money for this, as a NHS referral takes quite a few weeks to come through, and with a chest condition you don't have the luxury of being able to wait that long. Thank you once again for your help.
…a fantastic practice!
Heartlands is a fantastic practice. Been treated there many times by both Physiotherapists. Would definitely recommend !
Thanks to Heartlands, my back is greatly improved
…back at work tomorrow
Good news for me! Starting back at work tomorrow, which is what Birgit and I were aiming for.
…thank you for all your efforts and support
Hi Birgit. it has just turned 2 years since I ruptured my Achilles. I completed my half marathon last week in 2 hours. I would just like to thank you for all your efforts and support in getting me back into shape again. many thanks.
…you have been a lifeline!
Heartlands, you have been a lifeline! Your hard work on my ("inoperable") shoulder has brought my arm back to life and restored full movement. More than I could have hoped for. I shall sing your praises. Strength to your arm..... and mine!
