Hi Helen! My brain is finally functioning again after my Belfast Marathon event! Just wanted to let you know I finished in 5:53:21 yesterday so I beat the 6 hours I wanted to aim for! Had a real mental struggle from Boucher road for about an hour and a half but once I got over that my legs just somehow carried me to the end 🤷🏻♀ no shin splints, and the hip pain only came on in the last mile but feels to me like normal post marathon aches! Thank you so much for all your help and advice!
I have had bad back and hip pain for over 25 years because of a fall and previous occupation. I have tried physios, chiropractors and other methods to try and sort it but they only gave slight pain relief but never got to the root off the problem.
Thankfully a friend recommended Steve & Helen. The two of them have worked together to get to the cause of the problem and i have never felt better. Still work in progress but big improvements every week.
If you have any joint or muscle pain do yourself a favour and give the clinic a call. You wont regret it. Totally relaxed atmosphere and professional service. i cant praise them enough.
Superb care and personal service with a high level of professionalism from Julia and her team. Knowledgeable, helpful and honest about the pros and cons of various options for treatment.
I have been attending for several years with various complaints and would warmly recommend this company to anyone.
And if you go on the right day you might even find some chocolates on the reception desk for you to munch as you pay!
A big thanks to Helen at North Down Physio. Pain free and feeling so much better. Friendly professional staff at all times.
I met Julia when representing Northern Ireland in Weightlifting at the Commonwealth Games on The Gold Coast 2018. I was suffering from some lower back pain and Julia introduced me to the Sarah Key method. I found the treatment fantastic and quickly felt the benefit of it. Since Australia I have regularly seen Julia for this treatment to help ease the stress that Weightlifting puts through the body to help keep me injury free and feeling good. I’ve always been impressed with the professionalism of the North Down Physio facility and staff and the friendly welcome I get each time I go down.
Podiatrist Adam did great job, finding exact cause of my plantar fasciitis (reduced big toe flexibility). Having right direction did some stretching and progress is incredible.
As an athlete with the Northern Ireland Commonwealth Games team to Gold Coast in 2018, I was fortunate to have Julia allocated as Physio to our sport (Shooting). I was impressed not only with her professional knowledge and treatment, but with her whole-hearted dedication to the team. With Julia's support I was able to focus on my core business of training and competition.
Sinead Chamber was brilliant! She really knows her stuff, has a lovely down to earth and approachable manner which instantly puts you at rest. She is really encouraging and her treatment really really helped me. She takes a genuine interest in you full health and tailors her approach accordingly. I would defiantly recommend Sinead.
Being disabled I have been to many physiotherapists, chiropractors and osteopaths over the years. Many have helped but without exception none have been anywhere near as effective and helpful as Julia Webster. Her level of knowledge and outstanding practical treatments make her "second to none". I have been a client for nearly 7 years and wouldn't even consider going anywhere else.
I have suffered 4 collapsed lungs due to a weakness in my lungs and due to extensive surgery ended up with a winged scapula. The winging of my shoulder blade always caused me so much pain which then in turn put pressure on my lower back. I attended an oesteopath for several years and would have had instant pain relief but unfortunately this only lasted for a few days then the pain would return.
I was recommended to North Down Physio to Julia 5 months ago and it's been the best decision I have ever made.
Julia is amazing at what she does and I have never been as pain free in my back as I have been since I started my treatment from Julia.
Julia is so knowledgable in what she does and explains everything in detail about the treatment she is providing. She has worked on parts of my back including scar tissue that no other professional has ever mentioned could be worked on. The problems I have with my back are a lifelong problem and I am so grateful to have met Julia as she definitely keeps my back pain under control. I couldn't recommend Julia highly enough.
I needed physio for an injured leg.
Mark was brilliant. Really helpful and knowledgeable, and hopefully it is slowly improving.
He recommended a Thai massage which was totally amazing ! Nicky you are a very talented lady!
Really friendly staff, amazing massage from Nicky. It's an authentic Thai massage, so it can feel a bit strong if you are expecting just an oil rubdown. You won't regret it, though. Best Thai massage I've had in years!
When I first developed sciatic pain in November 2015 I asked my friend who is a physio in Australia what I should do as it looked like the NHS review would take at least 6 months to come through. She said, 'find someone who does the Sarah Keys method, they stand on your back, I'm getting great results here'. So a quick google later I found North Down Physio and an appointment was made with Cat. Having someone stand on my back seemed like madness, but made me feel so much better! Once Cat moved to South Africa, Julia took over my case and has been brilliant. Over a year later I managed to avoid any surgical interventions and am now feeling alot better and more mobile. Thank You!
My son was having trouble getting to sleep at night but thanks to Brendan he has now found a way to manage this through various techniques he is now a happier boy going to bed! And so is mummy!
I suffered a cervical spine injury in March of this year due to wear and tear and past work related physical pressure in this area( manual handling and working with hoists for patients) . After extremely limited success with Facet Joint injections and in considerable agony i was desperate to avoid surgery at all costs but had no idea where to turn to. Through recommendation i was directed to Julia . She has completely stopped the endless pain and stiffness through specialist massage and exercises , always listening to and evaluating my responses throughout. After having to go three times a week for a short while to get me out of spasm i am now in the happy position of twice a month and will hopefully only have to attend when and if required in the future! My consultant is more than pleased with the great results Julia is achieving and it is reassuring to know that both branches of medicine are able to work in harmony. Thank you so much.
I used Brendan’s NLP techniques throughout. Really pleased and thanks so much for your help and inspiration. It’s been a really good summer in terms of goals achieved. At last I can have a rest!
With a combination of a hard hitting sport (rugby) and an equally rough day job,(veterinary surgeon!) I have had many reasons to visit the clinic at NorthDown physio. Cat has excelled in her diagnosis, management and treatments on each of these occasions. Her knowledge base is exceptional. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend NDP to team mates and colleagues alike.
Coupled with the fact a member of the team ALWAYS returns your call, the physio treatment along side Paula's sports massages have been outstanding for my active, sporty teen daughter.
It has taken some time with vague symptoms but no member of North Down was willing to give up! Finally we had a break through (a lot to do with adolescence) and as a parent watching something your child has worked so hard towards, fall apart is tough. I instinctively felt everyone involved had Bonnie's best interests at heart and were keen to find a result, patience was the key and I never felt we were brought for unnecessary treatments. I fully commend their physio treatment alongside Paula's massage if you are a sports person and keen to keep active. No treatment was ever pushed with us but we now maintain appointments with Paula and Cat periodically, as we had such a tricky 8 months before attending North Down! A*, we would not go anywhere else!
There have been days when I have shuffled into North Down Physio, bent over in pain, and walked out, standing tall. The staff here are caring, welcoming, warm, and wonderful. They provide an excellent service in a professional but friendly manner. They have a genuine concern for the patient, and offer an integrated service.
Everything about the clinic is of the highest standard, from booking an appointment to aftercare. There is value for money, and staff never pressurise into taking on endless rounds of treatment.
I have been seen by Cat, Steve, Paula and spoken with Julia. I cannot recommend any of these members of staff highly enough or North Down Physio.
Everything about this practice is excellent, I would also like to take this opportunity to thank North Down Physio for how their treatments have helped me.
Paula has really helped relieve the stiffness I get from playing hockey and having a chronic back problem. After each session my legs feel lighter and my back more mobile. Paula always has great advice and has referred me onto Cat for further treatment. I would recommend Paula and North Down Physio to any of my team mates!
