I sustained a calf injury playing football and needed help with recovery. So I got booked in to see Katie at Canonteign Physio. She was amazing because she spent time assessing the injury and then explained exactly what I had done. Katie even looked into how I stood and used the muscle. So she could then offer advice on how to correct my movements so I wouldn't sustain a similar injury in the future. As I cannot take time out during the football season this was very valuable to my future health. She also gave me specific strengthening exercises and advice on how to get back to playing as quickly as possible. Along with the hands on Physio I received I cannot thank Katie enough for getting me back to my game as quickly as she did. Thank you Canonteign Physio.
Having had a sudden shoulder problem, I booked in to see Katie Bentley straight away. She not only diagnosed the problem but looked beyond the injury explaining why my shoulder was taking the strain. Her approach and understanding of the body helped aid a speedy recovery and I was able to return to squash and kitesurfing quickly. Changes were made in my training programme and I addressed the issues with regards to my shoulder with Katie's expert advice. She is professional and understanding and I would highly recommend her to friends and family.
I have suffered from neck problems which have also impacted badly on problems with my vestibular system and to my knowledge it is very rare to find someone who offers skills in both physiotherapy and vestibular rehabilitation as well as other complimentary treatments / approaches such as acupuncture and clinical pilates. Katie has such a broad knowledge and was always there to help whenever I had concerns or questions. But so importantly, she is such a caring and thoughtful person and always put me at ease. My only regret is no longer being within reach of Katie as she is just amazing.
