Fantastic experience at The Physiotherapy Place. Booked easily online and saw Quinton the next day. I am recovering from vascular surgery in my leg and while this had healed, I was left with almost unbearable muscular pain in my calf. Quinton was fantastic. After seeing him twice, my condition has vastly improved. I can’t thank or recommend Quinton enough, I feel like he’s worked miracles. If you’re thinking about booking here - definitely do it, you won’t regret it!

I’ve suffered with sore shoulders and tension headaches for years and have spent a small fortune trying to make it better but nothing really ever worked for long. Niall suggested that I try IMS and after a few sessions the pain has gone. I can’t recommend Niall highly enough.

I had my first appointment yesterday and for the first time in about 6 years had a pain free sleep. I can’t thank you enough. The clinic has a very clean professional friendly atmosphere. I will definitely recommend to family and friends.

Having suffered with back pain for most of my adult life, with various treatments offering only temporary relief, Quinton has sorted me out and I am now pain free. 5 stars.

At The Physiotherapy Place in Portobello it’s no fuss, no hassle, just results! I saw Niall with running related IT band issues. I was hobbling with 2 weeks to go I thought I’d have to drop the Berlin marathon. He’s done a great job in helping out and one session later there was a marked improvement. I was able to run and complete my first marathon with no niggles, a testament to his work. Thank you from the bottom of my IT band, couldn’t have done it without your professional care!

I thoroughly recommend Niall for physiotherapy. I saw him for a shoulder injury and couldn’t believe how quickly the treatment provided pain relief. Niall is very knowledgable, friendly, and provides excellent treatment in a relaxed environment.
