What can I say? Fantastic! After suffering from sciatica for months, Brendan’s treatments saw it off and I have never had a recurrence. Subsequent lower back problems since have also been seen off! The best physio I have visited without question!

Can’t speak highly enough of the team at BJA. It’s incredibly reassuring to have them there for those niggles and not so niggle injuries. Professional throughout from the booking, payment and communication process and, of course, the level of physio care. Strength in depth from this excellent young team, and Brendan😉.

I was so impressed with how easy and simple it was to book an appointment, along with the confirmation prior to the appointment. The session with Olivia was really beneficial, as I felt she understood the problem with my knee straight away. The physio was so helpful and Olivia was really good at explaining the 'why' with my questions. I followed the exercises given to me and the following session I saw and felt a noticeable improvement. I would highly recommend BJA Physiotherapy as long as you stick to the exercises.

Brendan and the team are superb. I have used them frequently in the past and still do to this day. They are always welcoming. They take the appropriate time to assess/understand the issue and diagnosis, to then facilitate a course of rehabilitation, treatment and management to enable a successful outcome of getting better and staying in good physical health. I have no hesitation in recommending BJA Physiotherapy.

Absolute first class care and treatment from Brendan and also an extremely professional and welcoming approach from all of his team.I have been to many physiotherapists over the years, but BJA Physiotherapy are the best by far.Brendan personally provided successful treatment and support following a knee operation and subsequently further treatment for other consequential niggles and issues.All in all, I can not recommend BJA Physiotherapy highly enough.

BJA Physiotherapy is excellent. The physio I saw was very professional, she took time to take a detailed history before starting treatment. All the staff at the clinic were very kind and friendly, which made me feel at ease. I would certainly have no hesitation in going back to them if I needed to.

Olivia, Sam, Brendan have been creative and persistent with my restricted neck issue and along with Michelle and the rest of the team have solved the problem and restored me to my former self. Over the 15 sessions it has been a fluent and continuous process with zero loss of care (due to staff holidays, etc.) going from Olivia (initial 5 sessions) to Sam (4) and then onto Brendan (1) and then back to Olivia for the 5 sessions.I’ve had acupuncture with heat therapy and manipulative massage during most sessions and whilst I didn’t know what the problem was - they all certainly did.I have also had several focussed video exercises to do and evolving exercises throughout and these will help improve my posture and deal with any similar future issues.Thanks for solving a mysterious issue. More appreciated than I can say here. I’m also sitting, working and sleeping better and would highly recommend BJA Physiotherapy.Mark(A paying customer)

Back Pain Treatments

Back pain and sciatica treatments

Back pain and sciatica are some of the most commonly seen conditions in our clinic. Back pain is not something you should just put up with. Let us help you.

Sports Injuries Treatments

Sports injuries - for the fit and some not quite so fit

Treatments of massage, manipulation, exercise prescription, acupuncture, taping and electrotherapy are all used as appropriate for your problem.
Neck Pain Treatments

Neck pain and whiplash problems

Symptoms of stiffness, muscular tightness and pain in the upper back and neck region are commonly ignored until they escalate to headaches, problems with concentration and sleep disturbance.

Acupuncture Treatments


Acupuncture is a form of treatment that promotes healing. It involves the insertion of fine needles into specific points of the body.


Soft tissue injuries – sprains, strains and muscle pulls

Soft tissue injury can range from a mild sprain to full muscle rupture or joint dislocation. In the early stages an accurate assessment can often help prevent problems further along in time.


Rehabilitation following fractures, major surgery and joint replacements

We are highly experienced in managing the rehabilitation for patients needing surgery, and that includes pre-operative care as well as post-operative.


Joint problems and arthritis

With expert assessment, treatment and good teamwork between patient, physio and at times family members or other health care professionals we can help with limiting the impact of these problems on your life.


Chronic pain, chronic fatigue and fibromyalgia

In our experience at BJA chronic pain symptoms have a considerable impact on quality of life, resulting in significant suffering and disability.
Let us help you.


Headaches and migraine treatments

The triggers for headaches and migraines may remain but through correct treatment to address the causes or symptoms, the impact on your quality of life can be reduced enormously.


Sports massage, fascial release, soft tissue manipulation, deep tissue work

We regularly give exercise programmes and postural advice, all very effective, however we also find with hands-on treatments, being pushed, pulled, tweaked, mobilised, your homework has greater benefit.
