“Sally made the best of a poor situation with being restricted to video calls initially. Helped by providing exercises and then offered for me to come to in-person visits when it was allowed. Overall Sally helped my injury and provided me with the knowledge to manage it going forward.“

    I've been having cervical pain in the last years and some months it gets worst. Sally through zoom meetings was able to help me. In a few sessions I recovered and my range of movement got even better. I highly recommed her! I'm very happy

    I got into contact with Sally via Imperial College. I was struggling and still am rehabbing a back injury which arose during the COVID lockdown. Despite the lockdown, Sally was able to guide me through online physiotherapy sessions, diagnose the cause of my backpain and set out a weekly plan to help rehab my injury. This plan involves stretches which target the injury as well as exercises to strengthen all the relevant core muscles. Sally is professional and explains stuff well. Recommend her.

    My friend recommended that I see Sally after I injured my back and was experiencing pain. She has been extremely helpful in treating it as well as showing me how to manage my injury on a day to day basis. She also had a lot of advice to give on how I could modify my core workouts so that I can stay strong as much as possible without worsening my back injury. She also guided me step by step so that I can fully return to doing gymnastics in the safest possible way, which I now have. Sally is the best physiotherapist I've had the pleasure of working with and would recommend her highly to anybody who is looking for help.

    Explanation (5/5)
    Sally has been helping me with various issues, and despite (due to Covid) us only being able to consult online has helped me hugely. She is skilful, knowledgeable and able to quickly identify problems and solutions. She is able to clearly explain different exercises and demonstrate them over video link, and I have seen great benefits and progress from week to week. This is combined with a patient, kind and caring demeanour. I can thoroughly recommend her services, and sure she would be even better in person when the situation allows for this!

    Explanation (5/5)
    Sally expertly advised me recently with a mystery pain in my buttock/back/let that stopped me from all my normal activities and despite only being able to assess me via Zoom, due to the virus lockdown, identified the source of the pain. She showed me how to do the necessary exercises on line too. This has been immensely helpful and is clearly working to heal the issue. She provided ongoing support with endless patience and was professional, mega helpful and charming throughout

    Explanation (5/5)
    Patient seen for:
    I had completely broken my femur so needed rehab after an operation. The rehab ranged from very specific exercises targeting areas of muscle wastage to improve day to day mobility to more general exercises with the aim to get to the level required to play contact sports. Sally has been extremely flexible and has so always seems to fit me in when I have time off university. I would highly recommend Sally Waters.
