After a nasty motorbike accident where I snapped both of my legs and smashed my ankle to pieces, I spent several months in bed unable to walk, which further damaged the muscles and ligaments in my legs.
 
I hobbled into Jo's care on crutches, wondering if I would ever walk properly again...
Jo immediately diagnosed the issues and devised a course of easy to follow exercises and stretches to counteract the problems I had.
 
I'm now able to walk long distances again and am very grateful for the huge improvement Jo has made to my quality of life; she is obviously an expert physiotherapist with a wealth of experience and a very genial manner.
 
I would definitely recommend a visit to Functional Physio to get a high quality assessment and to devise a plan to rectify whatever problem you have it could be the wisest investment decision you make this year!

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.
