What our patients say about us

  • Andy did a great job on my shoulder helping to recover from a lingering injury. He is calm, methodical, and professional. And exceptionally good at releasing those excruciating little muscle knows. Highly recommended.


  • Absolutely brilliant, I had been suffering back, shoulder and neck pain for years after a chest infection and accident a few years later, now my back feels great and my shoulders finally have some strength to them, I couldn’t recommend a better physio, found the route of each problem and fixed them! It may take weeks or months but stick to it because wow 🤩 it’s worth it!


  • I can’t thank Andy enough for his kindness and patience. I turned up with sever Achilles problems in both legs, a crazy plan and a short time scale. He listen and accepted my crazy plan was going to happen no matter what and therefore came up with a treatment plan. A plan that worked and a plan that I will always be grateful to him for. I really cannot recommend West Berkshire Injury Clinic enough. Thank you Andy.
