Definitely would recommend!" - Marcela Pallova

The whole team at Ealing Physio are very professional, the physiotherapists are extremely knowledgeable and clearly experienced in their respective fields.

Adam is a super reliable physio, very committed and amazing to work with." - Neus Beascoechea Segui

With Ealing physio, specifically Adam, I was back to playing football after 6-7 weeks after the injury. Highly recommend Ealing physio. Staff are all amazing and friendly. If you have a sports related injury, ask for Adam 10/10 physio. He’ll make sure you get back to the pitch in no time. 5 stars all round" - Ateed Butt

I was back on the court in just a few days of treatment and could see a significant improvement!" - Rachel NL
