Davina Sherwood

Chartered Physiotherapist
MSc Sports and Exercise Medicine, BSc (Hons) Physiotherapy

I would highly recommend Davina Sherwood. I was not hopeful of being able to rehabilitate my tendon injury without requiring a steroid injection, but Davina prepared a weekly load-bearing exercise plan and adjusted as necessary until full recovery. Thank you!

Having struggled with a persistent issue I went to see Davina. She has been first-rate throughout – professional, engaging, and supportive and providing clear exercise regimes. Throughout lockdown she saw me remotely and I’m really pleased with the results. I should also mention the support team (the administration team) who are excellent- very responsive and helpful. I would definitely recommend Davina and the team supporting her!

Davina guided me very well through my ACL rehab both in-person and virtually. Would recommend her and Octopus highly!

Oh wow. I came in feeling so uncertain about being able to run a race. Within moments Davina not only put my mind at ease but she also reassured me by giving me sound advice and helpful exercises. I was race ready and felt so chuffed. I came back for a follow-up and so pleased to do so. Whereas before I was so nervous about my feet, now I feel that with care and attention I can achieve my goals.

I’ve been treated by Davina for back and rib pain. Not only did she know exactly what was causing the problem but she was able to advise me both how to prevent onset and reduce the pain when it came on. She has given me a programme of exercises which really helped. I’ve saw her six times for treatment and felt much better after each. Highly recommended.

I came to Davina not being able to run at all because of my knee. A couple of months later I’m enjoying running more than ever, completely pain free 🙂 Thank you Davina, you are a star!
