Was referred by my GP summer 2018. Had 4 or 5 visits for trapped nerve treatment with the lovely Danni. The treatment worked well and Danni was great too. Clean treatment room and friendly, professional staff.

I went to see Danielle to resolve a sore neck. She did a great job and after a few sessions I was back to fighting fit! Thanks very much.

I had a really positive and enjoyable series of physio appointments with Danni Pennacchia to resolve a running injury. Danni quickly diagnosed the issue and through of combination of massage and home/gym exercises has helped me to get back to full health. Danni thoroughly recorded and noted my progress throughout my treatment. Danni was good at coming up with new exercises to make it more interesting and easier to commit to doing them. Danni was also able to adjust her approach as my pregnancy progressed. Danni is great at explaining what’s happening inside your body which helped me understand better how to help myself. Finally, I always enjoyed my physio appointments as Danni as she has a very kind and attentive manner.

I was having problems with a torn tendon in my shoulder which was causing a lot of discomfort, but after a few appointments with Danni at Impact Physio and being prescribed several exercises, I am now free from pain and able to do all the day to day jobs I was unable to do before. I would definitely recommend Impact Physio.

My first consultation was with Danii. She asked a lot of questions and made an in depth examination to come up with a recommendation to treat my problem which after a detailed explanation, appeared logical and sensible. She was a charming lady who appeared very enthusiastic about her profession and job. I would certainly recommend her to others

Having aggravated a previous knee problem I needed some advice before I embarked on a planned walking holiday that could potentially see me make the problem worse. Danni not only worked on my knee, but also answered all my questions and gave me the advice I was after. I now have the confidence to go away on holiday knowing what is going on and what measures to take to support my knee both in the short term and in the long-term. Hopefully a shot on me on my 400th Birkett will be heading Danni’s way next week and if I need more work on the knee after my trip I wouldn’t hesitate to come back.

Danni listened carefully about my neck problem… and made some very relevant observations and suggestions for new exercises, and sent some interesting You tube videos… couldn’t ask for more at this stage.
