I’ve just finished a course of treatment with Sheena for a frozen shoulder. I’m delighted with the improvement and Sheena was very professional and knowledgeable. I’ve used goPhysio several times in the last 10 years – back to when they operated from a small terraced house in Chandler’s Ford and Paul and his team have always been very helpful and professional in all respects.

My knee gives way, is this something to be concerned about?
If your knee is giving way regularly, it is definitely worth having an assessment. The knee can give way because of muscle weakness, but it can also be a sign of ligament damage in the knee. We can carry out a full assessment and if we think it’s necessary, refer you for further specialist investigations.
