Reviews for Louise
Louise has resolved a long standing hip issue and guided me through rehabilitation from abdominal surgery. Her combined expertise with physio and pilates is highly effective, delivered with consummate professionalism and care for the patient. She has also been a great help analysing movement patterns of my sport (golf) to help address any physical weaknesses/imbalances. Can’t recommend Impact highly enough. Thanks Louise!
Having a partial tear on my rotator cuff and being unable to lift my arm over my head for several months. I felt the need for expert intervention.
I contacted Impact Physiotheraphy via my healthcare provider and delighted to say that after 3 months of physio (over c6 sessions) I have full mobility.
Louise was exceptional at advising me that motion was a critical part of recovery – pushing each session to expand my range of motion and comprehension of exercises.
I am very happy to refer Impact and Louise for a service very well performed and received.
The service we received from Louise was excellent. Her help and advice helped my son recover from his leg injury. She returned our calls to offer professional advice and moved his appointment forward to see him so she could remind him about the risks of returning to sport too soon. Many thanks, Louise – he is now fit and well, and playing football again!
Many thanks to Louise for my recent treatment session. I have had a frustrating lower back pain for a couple of weeks. Her assessment was thorough, friendly and professional and just in the one session she made a world of difference. I feel inspired and confident to carry out the exercises she has suggested. I would not hesitate to recommend Impact Physio – the whole process is smooth, easy and friendly and, most importantly, the results are great.
I highly, highly recommend Impact Physio! Reception staff, Physios’ and all staff so friendly, welcoming and professional. I saw Louise for a number of weeks, with a very painful shoulder. Louise REALLY knows her stuff, but above all has such a passion for her work. She maintains her evidence based knowledge (which clearly shows in her approach to treating her patients) and she treated me with dignity. I’m so chuffed I now know about Impact Physio. I will use their services again without hesitation. Thank you x
After finally managing to get an appointment to see my doctor I was told that I should see a Physiotherapist. I chose Impact as it was local, and I had heard good things from people I knew who had received treatment from yourselves. Right from my initial treatment commencement, I can confirm that I was uplifted from the impression I received on my condition from the doctor. Each appointment with Louise was a step forward in my wellbeing. Her advice and treatment helped me get better mobility. I would not hesitate in recommending Impact to anyone who may consider seeing a Physiotherapist to improve mobility issues. Thanks again to Louise.
I had been in pain for many months when I was referred to Louise by my Doctor. I was given various treatment and exercises to do and I could always tell the difference after I had attended the clinic. Louise kindly emailed the exercises to me. The advice she gave me was invaluable as I soon realised it was lifestyle. My problem hasn’t totally gone away but I do know now how to stretch my muscles to reduce pain and discomfort. If the problem and pain returned and made life difficult for me I wouldn’t hesitate going back to Impact privately for treatment. Thank you for all your help.
l was very pleased with my treatment Louise was lovely and the staff on reception were very helpful too.
I had an appointment with Louise as have been having problems with my hips for some years and I couldn’t get in to see my doctor. Louise was excellent. Very professional, explained everything clearly and very thorough. There was nothing else she could do for me as it is a new hip I need so instead of me spending more money she sent me instructions for stretches that will hopefully help. I would definitely go back if I have any other problems.
