  • I suffer from osteoarthritis which causes pain and reduced mobility in my joints, particularly my shoulders. The regular treatment coupled with simple exercises that Darren has prescribed for me (the latter taking about 15-20 minutes three times a day and requiring no specialist equipment) have made a big difference to what I am able to do: I am virtually pain free and am able to lead the lifestyle I was used to when I was a much younger man.Walter Gibson, Retired Lecturer
  • I too have a problem with arthritis, but in my case it is exacerbated by Parkinson’s disease. The regular massages by Darren, backed up by a set of daily exercises, keep my pain to a minimum and greatly enhance the mobility of my shoulders and hips Vera Gibson, Retired Teacher
  • We are both in our late seventies, are enormously impressed by and grateful for, what Darren has been able to do for us. A very important consequence of the treatments we are receiving is that neither of us needs to take any regular medication for the control of arthritis Walter and Vera Gibson
  • Darren’s analytical approach combined with his impressive knowledge has allowed him to diagnose and treat a very complex problem that has plagued me for over a year and other physiotherapists have failed to solve- his attention to detail is what has set him apart from the other therapists I have visited Chris Ferguson, Track and Field Athlete
  • I love to ride my bike, and had a trip planned to ride some of the great Pyrenean mountains made famous by the Tour de France. Six weeks before the trip I had a car accident that left me with lower back pain so intense and restrictive that I needed help to put my shoes on. It hurt. A lot.I went to see Dave at Newcastle Physiotherapy who diagnosed a bulging disc in my lower back pressing on my sciatic nerve. At that point my chances of riding 5-6 hours a day in the Pyrenees looked bleak, and there was a real possibility of long-term damage.For the next 6 weeks I saw Dave once or twice a week. Through a combination of sports massage, joint manipulation, pressing on trigger points to relax my stiffened muscles and a series of stretches and exercises to be performed at home I made great progress. I’ll be honest and say the treatment was often uncomfortable but Dave took the time to explain what he was doing and why, and to make sure I was ok. From my rapid progress it quickly became evident that he knows exactly what he’stalking about (except when it comes to the football team he supports) and has healing hands to match.I’m just back from having ridden through the clouds to emerge at the top of the Col du Tourmalet. It was an utterly breathtaking ride (literally and metaphorically!) and one I wouldn’t have managed without Dave’s treatment and advice. He is now starting to build up an exercise programme that will strengthen my torso, protect my back for the long-term and keep me riding my bike. Richard Townsend, Newcastle Great Park, Gosforth
