I found Susie Burness to be a top quality physiotherapist.
She is a lovely woman and i felt very well supported with her
care. The injury I had is much better and I highly value her
The great thing about this small company is that they... have
top caring professionals within the team. They charge a very
reasonable fee for their efforts and the treatment time given
is more than enough.
Susie didn't want to continually see me. Her way forward was
I have really helped - which she did - this is the prescription
you need. Any problems give us a bell. I haven't see her for a long
time. My injury has cleared up. So I am very pleased with her.read more
Age related knee problems saw me skip seeing a GP and go straight to Bristol Physio. My wife has used their services previously so it seemed logical to select them.
A thorough exam and discussion provided a set of exercises to strengthen my knee.... Very pleased. Highly recommended.read more
I saw Susie a couple of times due to knee pain during and after running. She gave me lots of advice about stretches and foam rolling, which really helped and I was able to run the Bath Half relatively pain free!
Gemma is fantastic! I had a lower back sprain from doing deadlifts incorrectly that made sitting down at work incredibly painful. She gave me advice on stretches and low impact exercises I could do to build myself back up, and also gave me the most... fantastic sports massage I've ever had. I was pain-free for days after, honestly like magic. Had a follow-up session to check how I was getting on with the gym, where she described more involved exercises to match my recovery, and another equally amazing massage. Really thorough and extended care, cannot recommend her enough!read more
Charlotte not only carried out a very thorough and professional assessment of my knee injury, she also applied extremely effective, hands on treatment that improved the swelling in a way I would not have thought possible. Her advice was sound and... her expertise worth its weight in gold. Thanks Charlotte. I will be recommending you to all my friends!read more
Totally grateful I found Bristol Physio and Tony. After many years of low back pain and the last 2 years suffering chronically, I was at the end of my search for the right solution. From the first session Tony transformed the way I thought about... pain and gave me confidence that I could recover. For 2 months I’ve had regular sessions and Tony has shared his expert knowledge and boundless energy, plus tailored exercises, hands on treatment and insightful guidance on how to use and strengthen my body. I have made a huge improvement and feel renewed confidence. Every session has been incredibly valuable, Tony gives above and beyond. I recommend Bristol Physio 100% - book an appointment! ;)read more
Bristol Physio is by the far best I’ve been to. Charlotte, the Sports Therapist there, was incredibly professional, friendly and thorough. I’ve had a niggling injury for over a year that up until yesterday nobody has had any impact on improving,... but after one session with Charlotte it’s already feeling better. Cannot recommend Charlotte and Bristol Physio high enough.read more
I always come here for my injuries despite living in London now. I highly recommend Tony Gill for his expertise and extensive knowledge. As always highly professional, full explanations of the extent of my injury, excellent treatment and manual... therapy skills and generally a very positive attitude. A pleasure to work with, my current hamstring injury is making a fast recovery under the care and guidance of Tony. Would highly recommend to any one looking for a thorough and evidence based practice.
