‘Having managed to get tennis elbow for a second time, I wanted someone who could fix me quickly, and keep me on track with my gym regime as far as possible. Hilary W used a wide range of treatment options and all her experience with elite athletes to get me back to normal within a few months, and still exercising throughout – way quicker than the nine months it took to fix my elbow the first time around with a different physio. And all done locally (two minutes away), efficiently and with friendly service. Absolutely recommended!’
