I was referred to JV Physio whilst on holiday in Scotland. Jason provided outstanding service and diagnosis, getting straight to the reason for my pain and setting out a sensible and achievable programme of exercises. I have since experienced a major improvement in both the strength and mobility of my shoulder. Intelligent, thoughtful response. Could not recommend more highly.
