“SOMERTON PHYSIOTHERAPY CLINIC – SPECIALISTS IN BACK AND NECK PAIN, SPORTS INJURIES AND ADOLESCENT PHYSIOTHERAPY”
I've gone into Aidan probably 20-30 times in the past year, for a number of different issues. He's been fantastic every time - extremely knowledgable, able to quickly assess, diagnose and treat any problem. He is very open and communicative, and creates a personalized rehab plan for everyone. When I told him I was having trouble sticking to my rehab because it took too long, he immediately re-did the plan to just focus on the most important exercises so it wouldn't take so long. All around a great and friendly guy, and really fun to chat to during appointments. Best physio I've ever been to by far!
I dreaded the thought of getting physio on a sensitive and sore area of the neck and shoulders, but alas, couldn't avoid the inevitable for forever. Having attended Somerton (Aidan and James) on 5 occasions over the past number of weeks, the improvement to my movement, flexibility and reduced pain has been surprisingly positive. I feel the acupuncture, stretching exercises 3 times daily and the weekly physiotherapy are all part of my solution. A bit further of a journey to go but feel I'm in good hands. Good friendly, professional environment. I would highly recommend it.
Excellent physiotherapist. I had been having a lot of trouble with my neck and shoulders and have noticed a huge difference after attending physio with James for just a few months. James provided me with a very detailed and easy to follow plan to continue with at home. Would definitely recommend.
I'm very happy with my experience of Somerton. I had horrendous lower back pain, which was referring down my right leg, likely due to months spent hunched over a laptop writing a book. A busy schedule meant I probably ignored the pain for too long, relying on Solpadeine and exercise advice grabbed in haste from Youtube. After months of frustration and pain, I finally made the call to Somerton and James was very reassuring. Through massage and a more comprehensive and monitored exercise regime I saw some improvements. Aidan took over on week 3 and I made good progress, although there were a few setbacks and flare-ups. Aidan was great at focusing on lifestyle and pain management. I'd given up running when the pain began, and he integrated an incremental return to running as part of my exercise program. Aidan also taught me to be mindful of the habits of compensation that we get into when anticipating pain and linked me to research on cognitive approaches to pain. When the latter point eventually clicked, and I started integrating it into my habits of body and mind, my pain reduced by about 90%. This was my first experience with physio, and I would definitely recommend Somerton to anyone experiencing back pain.
A great venue, close to home. Opening hours are very convenient. I attended Aidan for lower back pain. He was extremely knowledgeable and friendly and very thorough. He assessed me and gave updated exercises on each visit. Under Aidan's calm approach, I am so much better. Would highly recommend him.
