I have been having physiotherapy with Swati for over a year now. I was initially diagnosed with patella tendonitis, which resulted in me not being able to play my favourite sport rugby, as well as being told I shouldn’t play it full stop. Swati was very positive and always encouraging, which helped me complete the programme she put me on. Following the programme I was able to make a recovery and am now back to playing full time.

The physio that my daughter has received has been outstanding. Swati has managed to provide us with a specific physio routine which has made all the difference to her pain levels. It has meant alot of committment but the progress has been amazing Her pain levels have been greatly reduced in her day to day activities. Being a childrens physio, Swati communicates in an age appropriate manner with a sense of humour and understanding.
Swati’s initial assessment of my daughter’s hypermobility was very thorough. She prescribed an achievable regime of exercise and motivated her to do it through educating my daughter about her condition and suggesting good strategies for her to record her own progress. Follow up appointments monitored progress, reassessed and were always encouraging.
Swati directed us to helpful websites and resources and liaised with my daughter’s school to educate and establish needed support.
My daughter’s condition has significantly improved thanks to Swati’s realistic and motivational approach. I would highly recommend Swati.

Swati is an excellent physio. She was great at encouraging me and getting me to do my exercises so that my hypermobility improved, which it has massively, thanks to Swati’s treatment and help in the exercise she set me. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a physio.
