A very well run and efficient physio practice with very experienced and trained staff, with great facilities. They have rehab and ultrasound facilities.

Susie Toms was really excellent and very useful in helping me to sort out a back niggle and Tom was also great.

Top notch outfit. My physio is Paul Houghoughi who is the best I have experienced. His diagnosis was very thorough and more extensive than any other I have had including ultrasound. The treatment plan is clear and appropriate and I have seen significant improvements already in my problem. He is also supports world class professional climbers and through this is clearly at the cutting edge of diagnosis and treatment for a wide range of injuries. Can’t recommend highly enough.

Before coming to BWT, I had been misdiagnosed by TWO practitioners for my intense shoulder pain. As a result, this lead to continued pain and unnecessary spending. However, after one session with the diagnostic ultrasound team at BWT, they discovered I had a Hill-sachs lesion and a swollen bicipital in my shoulder, within half an hour! I would highly recommend this practice to anyone as their range of equipment and treatment methods is impressive and of a very high standard, used and implemented by a team of hardworking, friendly professionals. Many thanks again BWT!

I’m 17 weeks post Achilles’ tendon rupture and I want to do everything I can to A. Avoid a re rupture and B. Get strong and mobile enough to enjoy dancing, skiing, cycling, table tennis again. I chose BWT and in particular Paul Houghoughi having studied the profile of their practitioners on their website.  More expensive than other practices but boy was it worth it! The knowledge, confidence and detailed help that Paul gave me was fantastic. What’s more he performed a Wells test on my swollen calf and recommended that I contact my GP. A couple of days later I was having a scan in hospital which revealed a large deep vein thrombosis, on my birthday! The anti coagulant tablets that were prescribed were in a funny kind of way the best birthday present I could have had. Because ……..who knows? Thanks Paul.
