It was seeing yourself that made such a difference to my life, as well as the treatment we always has a good laugh - or me having a moan!
He insisted that I get an urgent MRI scan...this prompt action uncovered the need for urgent hospital surgery to save my life... I always feel 100% confident when I recommend Olly to family and friends.
I recommend Oliver Bassett. Very thorough and very patient. Lovely physiotherapist who helped me deal with running related injuries.
From sporting injuries, general posture issues and dizziness as I suffer from vertigo, I highly recommend Olly to anyone needing Physio support.
