KIND WORDS FROM FRIENDS

MIKE TINDALL

“I've been to see Martin O'Connell repeatedly throughout my playing career. I can confidently say at all times he helped me with my rehabilitation and return to play status. In fact, I recommended him to numerous others also. He's a great physiotherapist who understands the demands placed on elite sports people”

TOM WALSHE

“I first went to Symmetry Performance 6 months ago after my GP had referred me to physio for a series of lingering rugby injuries. A work colleague had recommended Martin and I was immediately impressed with how quickly I was able to get an appointment. What made Nikki different to previous physiotherapists I’d seen was how thorough her initial assessment was, which made it clear her treatment had long term corrections in mind as oppose to quick fixes. Each session began with movement screens as well as my anecdotal feedback so the treatment could evolve and change with my progress. Everything was truly personalised and not a “one size fits all” approach. Nikki applied a variety of treatments and approaches including movement screening, exercise programming and selection, stretching and deep tissue massage, which meant things never got boring. Seeing Nikki at Symmetry performance has put me right back on track, allowed me to avoid surgery and taught me techniques that I can use for years to come.”
