Here’s what our happy customers had to say about our services:

Thanks with the Elbow Pain.

My daughter has been attending with a stretched ligament on her elbow. John has been fantastic with her would definitely recommend.

Shirley Gorrell
Bill Thomson

Can you please thank Matt for all the help he has given me over the last 6 weeks. Really pleased with how my knee is feeling post surgery and now feel a lot stronger and stable than before. Anti Gravity treadmill was great albeit a little uncomfy initially. Thanks again.

I woke up one morning with a lot of pain and discomfort in my shoulder and pain going down my arm. I attended an appointment with Ross at Core Physio where he did a thorough examination before going on to work on my shoulder to relieve the spasm and tightness I was suffering. After just one session I felt the pain ease. I have just finished my third session and the difference is unbelievable. Ross was very professional and friendly and would highly recommend to anyone. Thanks Ross

I injured my shoulder two years ago (which I stupidly ignored and got on with life) and had a relapse recently which meant I couldn’t lift my arm at all.
After 5 weeks at Core Physio, I have full movement and can look forward to being completely pain free for my holidays!
Easy to find and plenty parking outside. Very helpful and know what they are doing! Would definitely recommend

Elaine Holden

Was having problems with my back for months and had been to see multiple physios with no result! Have been seeing Ross Grant for the past couple of months and I’m now no longer In pain! Ross gave me manageable exercises to do at home and each session with him my back got better and better! Could not recommend him enough really helpful and great at his job! Will be back if I ever need any more help and will be recommending to all! Thanks Ross

Robyn Wilson
Leanne Crichton

I visited Core Physio at New Douglas Park Hamilton. Because I needed a physiotherapy report to assist me in protesting that my classification points value was too high when I play wheelchair basketball.
My physiotherapists John gave me a thorough examination on the physio bed and in my basketball wheelchair. He then went away, researched the IWBF wheelchair basketball classification system and wrote a report for me.
I am glad to say that with the help of John’s report the protest against my points was upheld and my classification points were reduced.
Thank you for the great service you gave me. I would definitely recommend you to anyone who needs a thorough physiotherapy examination and report.
Many thanks
Sarah

After suffering 4 weeks of extreme back pain, my husband booked an appointment for me with John. I could feel a huge improvement after my first session and required no more than three in total to have me feeling completely pain free and back to normal. Will continue to do my exercises as advised during treatments to hopefully prevent future problems occurring. Would definitely recommend Core physio as I could have not asked for a better outcome or for better service from a great team of people – thank you all very much indeed.

Can’t thank guys enough. Matt and Ross really helped with my rehab and the facilities are really good. Wife going now too!

I went to see Ross @ Core Physio after dislocating my finger in March. I’d been to see an NHS physio who discharged me and told me my finger would stay at a 20 degree angle forever! After a few physio sessions with Ross it was straight again- amazing not to have a crooked finger for the rest of my days! Thanks again!
