Had a bad fall and twisted my left knee causing me severe lack of mobility. The Long Eaton clinic kindly fitted me in with a same day appointment.

Saw physio Phil Tranter who was very reassuring in his approach.

Some three sessions along with an exercise routine has virtually cured the problem . Just need to carry on with the exercises .

I found very helpful that the exercise routine was sent on a video .

Would recommend without any hesitation.

Went after being diagnosed by a doctor with Achilles Tendonitis.

Phil was very friendly and very thorough.

After only 3 visits and doing the exercises my heel is feeling a lot better.

Very pleased thank you.

I went to the doctor with a shoulder problem and was referred very quickly to Impact Physiotherapy at Pride Park. I saw Phil Tranter and Alan Beers who were excellent in treating the issue and giving me advice on different exercises. Over the course of the sessions my shoulder problem went away and I am very grateful to Phil and Alan for their help. I’d highly recommend them to anyone who is in need of physiotherapy.

It’s definitely the basics that make the difference. I apprehensively made my way to my appointment, creaking knees and all, prepared to be told I had to stop running and cycling and prepare for an operation only to be told the pain and discomfort could be eased by stretching to re-align my kneecap. Lo and behold I noticed a difference in a week and was almost pain free in 2. I cycled a charity 100 mile ride 3 weeks later and walked the Yorkshire 3 Peaks a week later. Great credit to Phil and the team at Impact, seen quickly after referral and easy to get to although I’d prefer more clinic time at Derby Arena.

I was referred to the Pride Park clinic by my GP after being diagnosed with a frozen shoulder. I saw two of your Physiotherapists- the first visit was with Phil & subsequent visits with Chris. Both were very gentle & professional & I was able to be signed off quicker than expected thanks to their ‘magic hands’. I would have no hesitation in recommending both of them

Phil Tranter was my physio and my treatment was very successful. The exercises he taught me were very helpful and most importantly they worked.

I went to see Phil about a problem with my knee. Phil is incredibly knowledgeable and carried out some very thorough tests including an ultrasound scan and was able to advise me with some initial treatment exercise to carry out over 2 weeks and then return for a re-evaluation. My knee had much improved and Phil was able to provide additional rehab exercises. I returned a final time a few weeks later when my knee felt fine but Phil was able to additionally help by providing more information and further exercises to help strengthen the general area and prevent future injury. Very pleased with the service. Really nice friendly guy too! Thoroughly recommended.

I was having trouble with an injury on my leg and as a runner it was impacting me training competing. Phil at Impact was great, we had and initial assessment session where he was able to identify the problem and give me rehab exercises to complete for two weeks. After two weeks I returned where I was given some more exercises building on the ones previously given. This all helped to build the strength back up and help me overcome the injury. I’m now back running and pain free. Great service, personable staff, highly recommended.

I only ever use Impact Physio. I have seen Phil at West Bridgford over a long period of time. Everything is excellent. Phil is highly professional while being friendly , reassuring and knowledgeable. I have known him as a physiotherapist for many years and he is also experienced at dealing with sports related injuries. He successfully treated my sons when they were swimming at County level. I can not recommend his expertise highly enough. Treatment works well and options given for exercises keep you comfortable for a long period of time. Highly recommended.

Before going to see Phil, I had been having treatment for over 18 months with a chiropractor for a long standing shoulder/neck/back issue. I had become a little disillusioned as I seemed to be paying a lot for adjustments every week or so but it was keeping things at bay and not improving. The chiropractor had really helped in July 2016 when I had a particularly bad flare up and the rotator cuff became inflamed. Anyhow, a relative had been telling me for some time about how wonderful their Physio was and that I should give him a try. Prior to going to the chiropractor I had been to see many many professionals seeking some long term help and had spent a lot of money so I was wary of changing horses again mid stream. However for various reasons I decided to go and see Phil in January of this year. He spent time listening to me and all my tail of woe and he did some assessments. I think he was the first person I had ever seen (and yes I mean that) who actually seemed to be confident he could not only help but get me to a stage where I did not need to keep coming to see him. We started gradually and I religiously did the exercises I was given. Interestingly I had been given no such exercises before. Over the next 2-3 months I went to see him and gradually I started to see improvement. He also suggested a book I should read as he explained that when a person has become so used to problems the way in which we think about them is massively important. Committed to my recovery I downloaded the book and read it. I have now had the longest issue free period I have had in over 3 years. I still spend 10 minutes a day doing the exercises and I no longer live in constant fear of moving the wrong way and sending things into spasm. Only this past week I had a minor flare up and started to panic but then reminded myself that it ‘wasn’t a snake’ (Phil will understand the reference) and I consciously worked through things and saw an improvement in a day or so! The thing I liked about Phil was two-fold. 1. He told me that the objective was to get me to a point where I could look after myself and didn’t need him (in the nicest possible way) 2. When I told him that a previous professional had said it was the worst back/neck issue they had ever seen, he looked puzzled and said he didn’t agree. After around 6 sessions he said my movements and range etc etc were exactly what you’d expect from someone in my category. I would not hesitate to recommend him. I certainly will be going back to see him if and when I should need his help.

I have been with Impact for many years, they have always been a dedicated team of friendly professionals from booking an appointment to receiving treatment. I have recently needed to see Jo & Julie for a neck issue, my problem was discussed thoroughly and a suitable treatment plan and at home exercises provided. I came away feeling confident my neck issue would be resolved along with some guidance on how to avoid the problem re occurring. I can thoroughly recommend Impact, they always go the extra mile.

I always felt quite uncomfortable when it came to having to get massages for muscle pain however, booking in with Sara was the best thing I ever did. Not only did she make me feel comfortable but she listened to me and took the time to help and advise me. Her approach is fantastic and she is incredibly knowledgeable and friendly. I would highly recommend Sara.

I was referred to impact by my doctor due to severe arthritis in my hips ,had a very long wait for an appointment and to be honest I was not expecting physio to help much .I saw a lovely physio called Steven who immediately puts you at ease and after a few weeks I saw much improvement .At the end of my course of physio the pain had eased a lot and was much less painful on walking .I definitely would recommend impact physio and particularly Steven who I would like to thank for all his help .

The physio, Jack Clayton, was polite, friendly and knowledgeable. He listened to my feedback and worked with me to find a programme I could follow. I wouldn't hesitate to use again in the future. Thank you!

Came here for the first time a few months ago looking for help with my lower back. I had a god sit down chat with Jack and then a number of physio sessions thereafter. Jack was incredibly helpful, informative and very passionate about his work and getting me better. Jack gave me a clear timeline and a structured plan of physio which has helped me incredibly. I would highly recommend Impact Physio to anyone that needs physio and if I ever do need to go back it will be Jack I go back to see.

Impact Physio has given me a new lease of life, for the first time in 6 years I don't worry about my backache and Joe has been great. She listened about my previous experience to create a unique plan for me that was so adaptive and really work. Hard work and Joe's help has really changed my life

I had 8 Physio sessions with my physio therapist Chris and he was most helpful and considerate throughout for all of my problems. He always gave good advise and posted exercises for me to do at home which helped immensley. What I saw of the Long Eaton Impact Physiotherapy place the therapists who work there were well equipped and trained to deal with any of your problems to re habilitate.

Required Impact physio again to help me with my back and knee discomfort / pain, over several sessions. Ali was a superstar, listening and providing a program to get me feeling a lot better, can't recommend enough.

Had treatment for a very painful back problem & the physiotherapy given by Impact gradually alleviated the problem. My therapist listened to me, answered my questions & the treatment recommended worked, hence 5 stars in this review.

My First experience was with Chris Davenport on referral for hip and spine problems by my GP. Two courses done and he recommended Hatha yoga to supplement his treatment and help me long term. However before I could implement it lockdown came in so it was delayed until Autumn this year. I signed (with Mariangela)not fully knowing or expecting much in the way of personal tailoring or yoga exercise to be relevant to my situation. I needn’t have worried as the class of six is like minded and Mariangela caters (and cares) for us all. Bonus is it seems to be working; thanks Mariangela. The covid care from all at LE clinic is first class and not uncomfortable allowing for windows open. Reception staff always friendly with a smile. All in all just the tonic Update following treatment again in 2023 Not the first time I’ve used this service, same location, same Physiotherapist (Chris Davenport) and yes the same receptionist’s. As before they provided me with the ( in my view) the best treatment they could given my arthritis coupled with a set treatment time scale provided by the NHS. Thanks to all the staff.

Having pulled a hamstring at work and being unable to walk for a few days,my wife booked me in with impact Physio.I was looking at being off work for about 2-3 months.On the day of my appointment,I was met by a pretty young lady who got me to walk away from her then back again a few times.I was then asked to lie on my back on the couch where a pair of expert hands gently massaged the delicate hamstring area.A bit of manipulation got me a bit of pain,causing me to jolt slightly, but I was expecting worse anyway.I was then asked to lie face down on the couch.My lower back was then massaged and manipulated.The whole session took probably 30 minutes.The physiotherapist was always talking to me,saying what she was going to do, and wether or not I would experience any pain or discomfort.She was very good at her job, and did it professionally.Within 2 weeks, I was back at work.If you need a physiotherapist, look no further than Impact Physio.They don't come cheap, but you pay for what you get,rather than get what you pay for.Mine was worth every penny.I will definitely use Impact Physio again if i need to.

Having long term back pain is  not easy and same goes for three discectomies. Initially my physiotherapist was chosen for me by a spinal surgeon and I went with his choice but after meeting Louise and going through her 1:1 sessions I ended up attending the Long Eaton clinic for the last six years. Louise has an impressive  knowledge base and will always find a way to keep you mobile even when you feel you won't ever be able to move normal . During the years we worked together on  my back  she attended many courses and conferences and her skills make it so that , somehow, we still rarely repeat an exercise and I am sure there are many more to discover.She worked her "magic" on me so many times that I now only trust her with my recovery from yet another discectomy. Due to her skills I  managed to lead a normal life, I was able to keep my job which can be quite strenuous , I travelled long distances by plane or car , basically kept active. My admiration for  Louise is endless. Not only she is an excellent physiotherapist and Pillates instructor, but she is  also a wonderful human being ,who in this day and age  has maintained empathy and compassion for the suffering of those around her. I wouldn't want to miss Laura and Sandy and the whole reception  team from this review . Thank you for your help and support over the years ladies! It is much appreciated.

My daughter was referred by her GP and we had 2 appointments with Louise. She was brilliant and really good with my 8 year old daughter. Both appointments were thorough and my daughter was shown lots of different exercises to do at home with explanations of how they would help her. We also had emails showing the exercises in videos as well. The appointments were during 'covid times' as well and we felt very safe.
