“Glad to meet professionals like The Physio Specialists who care about the athlete, who are passionate about their work & enthusiastic to see progress in their clients. I look forward to make a full recovery and more importantly a self-analysis on all physiological & biomechanical weaknesses spotted to become a better – faster – stronger athlete than ever before.”

Darren Vandit

“I would highly recommend Matthew as a physiotherapist, he is very good at what he does, very friendly and gives individual attention. Never thought I would get better so quickly but thanks to Matthew and his techniques, I did!”

Leanne Mangion

“I used to suffer from repeated shoulder dislocations and after the operation I left it in Matthew’s hands to help with the recovery process. The exercises given were what I needed during the different stages of the recovery. He checked up on me very regularly even after the physiotherapy sessions were done. Very highly recommended!”
