New testimonials

 
“The video consultation was professional and helpful. Jo was really thorough in analysing and providing exercises for my knee injury. This is certainly a good form of consultation in the absence of face to face appointments”.
Penny Snowden

 
"I badly injured my right knee (ruptured ACL and sprained MCL) whilst skiing, and desperately needed to pursue physio rehabilitation at the start of the Covid-19 Lockdown. Fortunately, I found Jo Pereira, who organised regular physio consultations with me via video link. Jo devised a programme of exercises for me (sent via email), and regularly monitored my progress, adapting my exercises accordingly, despite the fact we were unable to meet in person. I am absolutely delighted with the massive improvement in my knee, and my general mobility, and now feel confident I will be able to ski again without resorting to surgery. Having had a very positive experience using video consultations, I would definitely recommend them in the current circumstances".

alan w chambers mbeAfter a terrible road traffic accident I thought my adventure career was over and I would spend the rest of my life with constant back pain. The impact of the car crash left my back and spine in so much pain and discomfort I thought there was no way I would be able to take part in any more expeditions.

After a terrible road traffic accident I thought my adventure career was over and I would spend the rest of my life with constant back pain. The impact of the car crash left my back and spine in so much pain and discomfort I thought there was no way I would be able to take part in any more expeditions.

Soon after the accident I was recommended to go and have an initial consultation with Jo Pereira. After a thorough examination and assessment Jo suggested that a course of physiotherapy and strengthening exercises was needed to correct not only the pain but to bolster by back and neck up again so I could carry on with my expeditions and without worry of recurring injuries or pain whilst away.

 

Without Jo Pereira's expertise in diagnosis and then correct treatment my adventures would have been over. Since my treatment by Jo I am back planning expeditions and soon to be climbing Mnt Kilimanjaro. It's not just about the quality of the treatment received it's about the quality of your life after the treatment has finished that's important.

I would highly recommend Jo to anybody who needs to get their life and body back on track and to be pain free after an accident or injury. Thanks Jo.

I have used the services of Functional Physio a number of times over the last three years for degenerative back pain issues and a knee injury. Jo and Catherine have both provided excellent support, professionally diagnosing the root cause / issue and providing the treatment needed to help me get mobile again in the shortest possible time. Their pro-activity in helping me get active and address underlying posture related issues to avoid re-occurrence of symptoms is refreshing and instils a positive mind set. As part of the pro-active avoidance approach, I have been attending pilates classes run by Jo for several years and found the benefits in flexibility and muscular control have contributed to a reduction in back related issues.
