"Charlie Goodchild is a top class physiotherapist and I am glad to regularly work with him. He has expertly treated many of my patients. He treats both acute injuries and chronic conditions with truly outstanding outcomes. Patients can avoid needing to undergo more invasive procedures or operations and, for those still requiring surgery, will make their rehabilitation go smoothly. He has great rapport with his patients and provides them with the care and attention each needs to make a complete recovery. "
