Nathan was my physio after I sustained a shoulder and neck injury following a car accident, and was an absolute gem. So friendly, helpful and really put me at ease each session, as well as giving me homework and being really encouraging throughout. I had two other physios also treat me and each was very good. Would highly recommend, especially for nervous patients.
