I injured my Back last year and have 6 sessions with a chiropractor, who referred me to Doctor as I had no improvement. The Doctor referred me to Physiotherapy at the Hospital and I did 5 out of 6 sessions as it was a waste of time. I... found Matt on Google and was impressed with his 5 star reviews. I started see Matt and after 2 weeks of massage I was feeling a little better.I carried on seeing Matt for massage and I was improvement but still not gone so he tried accupuntcher and I was improving week by week. I would recommend Matt to anyone who is in need of Physiotherapyread more

10/10 for service, professionalism and quality.I got a shoulder injury which developed, got worse and stopped me doing gym classes and workouts. After this, I went to a walk in centre and a doctor due to me struggling and the pain... developing. They both couldn't tell me directly what was wrong with my shoulder.I was advised by my doctor to have physio. I decided to go private as I wanted to get it healing ASAP. This is where I got in touch with Mathew at Sub-4. I had my first appointment which included my assessment, treatment and home exercises. I have since been going weekly due to my injury but have found every session beneficial. I recieve treatment on every session and my home exercises develop each time. My shoulder is now healing very well and I am starting to get full range of movement back. I find Mathew to be extremely knowledgeable in his field, professional and feel comfortable during my sessions. Even when suffering with another problem, I asked Mathew about it during one of my sessions and he recommended some exercises for that also.Cannot recommend Mathew and his physio sessions enough!read more

My father was in despair with pain and no feelings in his arm and shoulder. He was also mentally very down in himself.Matthew was and is marvellous he listens. But before the scans ,the x.rays ,and consultant ,Matthew had already informed... us before what they would say and it.s exactly what they said .So my 87 year old father was prepared.Not only is he brilliant at what he does.He helped my father mentally to and that goes a long way.My father has made brilliant progress .Both physically and mentally. So I would never hesitate in recommending him .Or my father to he goes each week and the hospital are astounded by his progress .read more

Fantastic results in a very short period of time! I went to see Mathew three times and every single time his diagnosis was spot on, treatment effective and his knowledge and expertise are outstanding. I would not go anywhere else. He is... thorough and informative. He puts you at ease and is just a top specialist. Highly recommended!read more

Online Physiotherapy

Put simply this is Physio done via either telephone or video over the internet. Skype and facetime are examples of this.

Contrary to popular belief online physiotherapy can be very effective and it can help the same injuries that face to face physio can help. I have helped many people with injuries such as disc prolapses, tennis elbow, neck pain and much more).
