I have been treated by Maidenhead Physio for many years, for chronic but irregular back pain. They have been most accommodating with my requirements, and during a particularly bad period recently, helped me greatl, even over a weekend when everything was in lockdown. The staff are very helpful with exercise recommendations and demonstrations on how to do them at home.’

Jenny, Maidenhead

The whole team provide a professional yet friendly service. Michael is extremely good at engaging with my sister who has anxiety issues. There has been a marked improvement both physically and mentally. My sister looks forward to her sessions which in the current circumstances have been via FaceTime.’

Sarah, Maidenhead

Ali treated me for a bad back/hips during and after pregnancy. I was in terrible pain and could barely walk. She was amazing and sorted me oit in just a few sessions- thank you!


Just two sessions in and I’ve already noticed real improvements with my knees. Michael has extensive theoretical knowledge that he applies practically to suit your individual conditions, looking to address not only symptoms but the underlying causes of your condition too.

Michael provided a great virtual consultation during lockdown, while I was experiencing a very sore neck. Michael was professional, engaging and helped my neck with some simple tips and exercises. Thanks Michael.

Will I be treated on my first session?2020-09-25T12:51:54+01:00
