“I had a dreadful stress fracture injury to my ankle from running. It had been misdiagnosed on X-Ray. After several months of going back and fore to my doctor and putting up with severe pain I came to Active VIII. Gerry quickly diagnosed my problem and referred me for an MRI scan, which confirmed her diagnosis. I have since had fantastic physiotherapy treatment and a biomechanical assessment with prescription orthotics. This has completely sorted out my problems. I can’t thank Gerry (and her wonderful team of physios) for such brilliant service – you guys “rock”. “

Brilliant, fantastic and very professional physios. I have been back and fore to ACTIVE VII for a number of years with various problems and have always had fantastic treatment. Most recently I injured my shoulder. Sarah (who specialises in shoulders) was very kind to me as I was in a lot of pain. She immediately diagnosed my problem and injected my shoulder then and there. This completely relieved my pain. Sarah provided me with advice and when she saw me again 2 weeks later she did physiotherapy treatment to sort out the tendons. So after only 2 sessions I can get back to doing what I love – gardening and playing tennis. Thanks you so much Sarah.

I have had over 50 years of orthopaedic problems from participation in sport and have been treated all over the world. I have also had considerable experience of the best physiotherapy practice as an administrator in sport in particular as Chairman of the Scottish Rugby Union. I have been looked after by Active VIII since they opened in 1999. In my experience their response, diagnosis and treatment is the best I have ever enjoyed. They also ensure that they are in the forefront of advances in their profession. I have a feeling of great confidence every time I walk in their door and would have no hesitation in recommending their services and team.

Active VIII have provided me with fantastic care over the past 11 years. I had a nasty car accident several years ago and many sports injuries since then. All of these injuries were quickly diagnosed and treated by the wonderful physios at Active VIII. I highly recommend them. Sports people take note – they have Olympic, GB and England sports physios working at Active VIII. You couldn’t be in better hands! Thank you.

Following sustaining a nasty shoulder injury from a motorbike accident I found myself under the care of Sarah and the team at Active VIII. I was immediately made to feel comfortable and at home at what was a very difficult time for me initially. The friendly yet highly professional treatment I have received over the last 2 years has allowed me to regain a larger proportion of movement than was thought possible from the prognosis. Never afraid to go the extra mile I have had all the support I needed to get medical referrals and legal reports in an extremely expedient manner. I would highly recommend any of the physios from whom I have received treatment at Active VIII. Recommended!!

I can’t thank Active viii enough for great treatment on my back, which I injured rowing. He manipulated my spine and used an “instrument” to stretch out and massage my tight back muscles. Two sessions and I am back on the water. I can’t ask for more than that -superb! ps. I just wanted to mention Active VIII have fantastic facilities and equipment as well as great staff. Just fab.

Thanks also to Active VIII for great pilates core stability treatment for my back. Superb.
