As a dentist I frequently have sore shoulders and worry about my back. The treatment I have received from Richard at Edinburgh Sports and Spinal Physiotherapy has been excellent. Very thorough and comprehensive. I would definitely recommend this clinic and Richard.

Definitely recommend Richard

I sustained a football injury concerning my knee and underwent an operation but I had quite a bit of muscle wastage following the operation. Richard organised a bespoke regime to build up the strength in the muscles surrounding this. I am no longer having the troubles as I know have the stability in my knee which I was lacking previously. Great manner, would definitely recommend.

Excellent Physiotherapy

“I worked with Richard at Edinburgh Sports and Spinal Physiotherapy when I was recovery from an ACL reconstruction. His knowledge and understanding is excellent. We worked together to put a detailed return to running plan specific to the hamstring graft that was taken during surgery. I would definitely recommend this clinic and Richard”.

“I have used other NHS and private physio services as well as chiropractors in the past without success and so came to Richard. Richard is a Physio who listens and understands your situation. After an initial assessment he will then organise a detailed treatment plan. I would highly recommend anyone with back pain to see him”.
