  • After an ankle injury sustained Mountain biking that just would not seem to heal, Carls expertise helped to diagnose what was wrong and get me back to regular training. He prescribed and demonstrated exercises, explained the benefits of each and really helped me to understand the reasons why we were doing them. Progress was seen immediately, and although its still not quite as good as before the injury, i was able to avoid surgery which would of entailed a much longer healing time with no guarenteed results. If you are looking for a friendly and knowledgeable physio look no further!

  • I am a part of a stroke group and Carl runs a Zoom class every Thursday after. He is a qualified instructor in all forms of exercise including Stroke Rehabilitation. He gives us gentle movements that he explains what benefits they have. Non of the exercises are strenuous and he can tailor then to each individual. Each month we have an assessment lesson where we all fill out a private form that no one else can see. looking over the forms for the last few months I can see although it be slow a steady improvement. I would strongly recommend Carl and his rehabilitation classes to anyone who wants to make some improvement there improved mobility. A big Thank you Carl

  • I saw Carl when I was suffering from plantar fasciitis. He sorted out a rehabilitation programme, demonstrated excellent understanding of my needs to get back onto the netball court as quickly as possible and explained clearly what exercises would help. He is knowledgeable about many sports and injuries, as well as being available for advice around training and strength and conditioning. I will certainly seek out his advice in the future.

  • Carl is the physiotherapist at our Stroke Club. He is cheerful, warm and approachable. He is always thinking of new and fun ways to help us maximise our potential after stroke. His patience, humour and expertise makes him a valuble, well loved member of the team. He is highly recommended!

  • I saw Carl when I had Sciatica and was in a lot of pain. He was extremely professional, knowledgeable and helped when the pain was at its worst. He gave me some great after care advice as well which I still use now and am pleased to say I am still pain free. Would highly recommend and would use again myself.

  • Carl provided a fantastic sports massage service, saw him twice during a recent visit to Felixstowe, he was flexible around my arrival time, was super organised, punctual and massage was spot on. Would not hesitate to recommend Carl for anyone needing Physio / Sports Massage in the Ipswich / Felixstowe area.

  • positive review  Carl was my supervisor for a time whilst working in MSK physiotherapy in Suffolk. He's always put alot of time and effort into teaching and helping me to understand all things physio related and how best to manage tricky patients. Working with Carl has helped to develop my clinical reasoning skills, handling, and confidence and he is a physio that even with my own six years experience, I would still seek out and value his opinion and advice

  • positive review  I became a client of Carl's earlier this year after suffering a calf injury playing rugby. After the extremely professional assessment; medical history, previous injuries, level of physical activity, current physical stats etc. I was given a detailed but easy to follow plan of rehabilitation. No pressure was put upon me to have any follow up appointments; literally my choice if I felt the need for further treatment. I took the opportunity to book a further treatment straight away. Through the careful management of my injury by Carl, sports massage, specific area exercise and monitoring by him, I was able to resume playing rugby again within an incredibly short time frame that I didn't think would've been possible. I can thoroughly recommend Carl for anything from a small niggle to major injury as you'll be seen by the best.

  • positive review  Carl did my assessment before referring me to a neurologist when he discovered that physical therapy was not the appropriate course of action. Although unable to assist me with an exercise program, he took the time to go through all of my history, did a thorough physical assessment before making any assumptions and compiled a great referral report which sped things up for me afterwards. Professional attitude, knows his stuff and a friendly guy, highly recommend!
