Dafydd Williams – General Manager for Arriva Buses
“I want to thank Oliver & ‘The Physio & Sports Injury Clinic’ for all their support they have given to both Arriva & myself over this last year. It’s quite apparent that the Physio sessions that both my Arriva staff & I have had have not only improved staff well-being, but have assisted in a quick recovery time from injury. In this current climate every penny counts and managing sickness and absence is key to maintaining financial control. It also sends out a message to all our staff that we do care and want to help those who need assistance.
I, myself have had 2 Knee Replacements over the last few years and would have got back to work so quick after surgery without their help. I consider the service Oliver provides, is a `must have` to anyone with an injury in the area and I will continue to recommend the clinic to anyone at the earliest opportunity”
“When your car needs an MOT, you think nothing of it when booking it into a garage and paying the bill. However, when our body (an infinitely more complicated engine) misfires, we often shrug it off and hope it fixes itself. Why…….???
In my opinion, a visit to the Physio & Sports Injury Clinic keeps my body mobile enough to continue playing sport. As an extreme sportsman I need my body to function at its best. The Physios at this clinic here understand these needs and has kept me going through a whole range of self inflicted injuries brought about by the sports I pursue!
Oliver has an incredible knowledge of the body and is able to quickly diagnose and treat all kinds of injuries. Perhaps more importantly, he also knows when and who best to refer to for further investigations. When I seriously damaged my shoulder and it failed to respond to treatment, he knew the man for the job. As it turned out, he was one of the few consultants who had the ability to repair the damage I had done. Thanks for all your help.”
“Without The Physio & Sports Injury clinics expertise, dedication, and encouragement, I would not be where I am today. I am a track sprinter originally from Dolwyddelan and compete for Wales at international athletic events. A few years ago I was lucky enough to be selected as part of the Welsh Development Talent Academy (WDTA) as one of 13 athletes throughout Wales with world class sporting potential. However, due to the high demands of training as an athlete, the threat of injury is always just around the corner and to stop that, Steve has been patching me up and looking after me ever since.”
Rachel’s recent success include being on the podium at the British Athletics Championships 4 times in both the 100m and the 200m, and has been Welsh Senior Champion for the last 2 years. Rachael currently holds the Welsh U20 100m record (11.61 seconds) – a record which had previously stood for 28 years. “I wouldn’t go anywhere else for physio, Thanks!”
“I’ve picked up a few injuries over the years, firstly when i started out as a runner for Colwyn Bay Athletics Club and now as a junior weightlifter at NW1 in Llandudno. Fortunately the Physio & Sports Injury Clinic has always been there to fix them all.
I sustained a knee ligament injury in a few years back and part of the problem was that I had very flat feet, which caused my knees to turn in. Over a course of treatment i also had my feet casted for professional made-to-measure orthotics to be made. This cured the problem 100%. More recently leading up to my first international weightlifting competition for Wales, Oliver helped me through my final preparations with some sports massage. Although sore during the treatment, my neck/shoulders felt so much better afterwards. From this I had a great tournament & secured a bronze medal!
Overall, Oliver’s philosophy is to get seen in the clinic as quick as possible when an injury occurs. This is what i have done, and get fixed in no time. Thanks for all your help.”
“A few years ago, I was training for a white water kayak expedition to Kenya when I injured my rotator cuff, this left me unable to prepare for the trip and unable to work as a kayak coach. I got straight on the phone the Physio clinic ASAP where I was put on a 6 week plan consisting of 2 treatments per week to get me ready for the expedition; each session was followed with tips on how I can assist the treatment at home.
I was able to go to Kenya and complete 6 first descents of the rivers on Mount Kenya. The injury is still giving me some pain from time to time but I know what exercises I need to be doing to get it back to full strength. The Physio & Sports Injury clinic team are the first people I would go to myself and the first people I recommend to others. Many thanks for all your help.”
“2 months before the North Wales Championships 2013, I strained my plantar fascia in my foot. I hurt this whilst playing netball in college. To begin with, I could hardly even weight bear on my foot. Thankfully I got it treated at the Physio & Sports Injury Clinic that week. All together I had about 6 sessions & was only out of action for 2 weeks. Thanks to the Physio & Sports Injury Clinic I got to the North Wales championships & came 1st in the 200m.” Nia is now studying Sports Science at Bangor University and has swapped sport to weightlifting just like her younger sister Bethan!”
