About me

COVID 19 Update:

It's with a heavy heart that I take this time to inform you that Sophysio has had its last face to face consultation until further notice.

My clients' health is of utmost importance so anyone who does need input can receive this via Zoom.

I have been so lucky to have met such lovely clients since starting up with Westland Medical centre 9 months ago. Thank you for anyone who has supported me in my little business venture.

Let's obide by the rules so the Nation can make a speedy recovery in this unprecidented time.

Stay safe & well.

Know that I'm always at the end of a phone to anyone who needs me.

Until further notice... SoPhysio.

I am a fully qualified Physiotherapist who is a member of the Health & Care Professional Council (HCPC), Chartered Society of Physiotherapy (CSP) and Acupuncture Association of Chartered Physiotherapists (AACP). After graduating from The University of Nottingham, I gained experience within the NHS, private sector and sport setting. I now specialise in assessing and treating musculoskeletal injuries.

Some Client Feedback:

"Hi Sophie. Thank you for seeing me at such short notice yesterday. The area that you worked is much better, first good nights sleep I've had. Can't thank you enough"

"I went to sophysio hardly able to walk with awful back pain. I was 50%better after the first treatment and within 4 treatments I didn't need to go back. Couldn't be happier."

"Two painful injuries cured in no time, back to training and feeling strong!"

"Sophie is amazing I couldn't recommend anyone better. We are training for the london marathon and she has just been amazing getting us ready to set off the start line in the best condition possible. Thanks again sophysio xx"

"I visited Sophie after having a car accident. Before I met Sophie, I was given physio through my insurance company, I was given a very poor service & I was still in lots of pain. However, I heard about Sophie through a friend who spoke very highly of her. Sophie was wonderful, I felt at ease as soon as I met her. She conducted a very thorough assessment of my pain, and was very understanding. I had roughly 8 appointments. I couldn't recommend her more. Thank you Sophie, you have made me pain free again."

"Having been in pain with golfers elbow for several weeks, I saw Sophie for some advice. She gave me 2 sessions where she strapped my elbow with sports tape. Symptoms fully resolved with these 2 sessions and one year on I am still pain-free and playing golf!"

"I visited Sophie last year for my long term back pain. Treatment has all but cured the constant pain in my lower back. It is a professional, friendly atmosphere and has shown that regular sports massage improved my lifestyle"

"I began sessions with Sophie after suffering with severe Achilles tendinitis for three months making it very difficult to walk as well as complete my normal training programmes. After three acupuncture/massage treatments I'm now pain free which was very surprising considering the last time I suffered with this injury it took 8 months to heal. Sophie is very knowledgeable and friendly and can advise on the most suitable excises and muscle/tendon supports you can use to get you back to full health"

"Sophie is knowledge, charming and has a range of alternative treatments as well as physio. My knee had been hurting for months and three sessions including cupping it has made such an improvement I can run without injury again. Thanks Sophie"

"After 7 years of problems with my shoulder (unknown cause) I went to Sophie through a friend's recommendation. She really put me at ease and, for the first time, I felt like I was being listened to; I'd had years of being brushed off and prescribed Naproxene by others! I can now go days/weeks where I do not need pain relief which is amazing. Super professional, extremely knowledgeable and wonderfully friendly. Thanks Sophie!"

"I visited Sophie after finding a niggling pain in my wrist becoming worse. Following treatment and advice I am now back in the gym and training again at full capacity exactly in the time frame predicted. If in any doubt about any injury or discomfort you have it is so worth using Sophie as you are guaranteed an excellent service and are sure to be put at ease and given treatment/advice that will make you injury free. Sophie provided treatment at a very good price and was completely flexible to find a time that suited. Overall a top notch service!"

"I went to see Sophie with pregnancy related aches. She was very supportive and professional and gave me some good practical advice as well as being honest about the results. She communicates well through text and email which was handy for me due to my working hours.
I would definitely see Sophie again if I needed to in the future and recommend her to others."

"A great lady who went out of her way to help and relive my pain/situation. Practical advice with follow up and great support - can't recommend enough- now on my contact list!"
