Further information

Gary Sweeney Hired Steven as a Physiotherapist in 2011, and hired Steven more than once

A very big Thank You to Steven at Optimal Physio. He helped me overcome my injury and return to my normal activities in a quick and effective way. His friendly, professional and personable approach helped greatly with my rehab and I have complete trust in his treatment and his knowledge in his specialist field. This was mainly down to the way in which Steven took the time to listen to my needs and he clearly and simply explained to me why the injury occurred, what was going on within my muscle group and what he was going to do each step of my recovery program. He gave me clear guidance on what he expected me to do to help the healing process to get me back to full fitness.

Steven and I built a very good rapport quickly, which is easy to do with someone like him and he gave me the confidence to look at things differently. He helped me greatly and I would Highly Recommend him. In October 2011 I returned to full fitness and feel on Top of the World.

Thank You Steven!!
