Darren is a great physio. From sporting accidents to chronic pain he’s able to breakdown what’s going on and offer an approach to fixing it that’s easy to use and understand. As a PT it’s rare to come across someone so regularly highly spoken of by so many in the industry.
I came to Pro Health fearing that I wouldn’t be able to run for months because of the pain in my achilles. After a couple of sessions I was given the tools to strengthen my legs and get back running within weeks. Highly recommend!
Darren is excellent at his job and easily the best physio I’ve seen. Not only is he extremely knowledgeable, he takes the time to really explain things and puts you totally at ease. I would recommend him to anyone!
Just outstanding. Been seeing a therapist for a while, and whilst I was getting results. I knew I needed a more in depth look at, so found these guys, cannot thank them enough, simply brilliant and the after care phone call and training plans where unexpected, but a great touch. Thanks
