TRIGGER FINGER

The muscles of your hand perform a number of different movements. But for the most part we notice that they bend and straighten your fingers. You can normally do this thousands of times a day and never notice that not all of these muscles are actually in your hand.

How to run injury free

Five star scale is too small because I would gladly give 10. Fixing my shoulder was expected. However Peter and Shefali, by taking the time to explain joint mechanics and asking key questions, figured out behaviors that I can easily change to avoid unnecessary strain to the area I know I am susceptible to injure. Moreover, the communication between them was excellent (they covered each other during vacation). It was truly like having the same physiotherapist for the duration of the therapy.

Peter is very professional. I appreciated the thorough consultation to understand the problem I was having with my shoulder. He put me on a great strength building regimen from pain management to re-strengthening muscles. The sequence of prescribed exercises with accompanying videos helped to speed up recovery. I am very happy to recommend if you are looking to get better soon!

Best 1:1 service for your all your physio/Acupuncture needs. Professional physiotherapist Avi, Shefali, Peter and Chris.
I had my ACL surgery in Aug 2021 and totally regret not coming here then. I started my treatment in March 2022 and by April I was able to go back to my 5K / 10K steps walking with a better speed prior to my surgery.
This place does not place you with 20min on tens machines and where the physiotherapist spends 5-8mins on you. Instead here they spend entire session WITH AND FOR YOU!

The staff are ver friendly & have loads of patience

I would give them 100 Star rating
