Below are additional reviews provided to us by some of our clients and peers.

“Chris from React guided me through an innovative rehabilitation programme for my anterior cruciate ligament injury with complete empathy for my frustration at being unable to play. The exercises he recommended challenged function and strength and enabled me to get back to training with confidence.”


Gary Gardner (Professional Footballer)

“Chris was recommended to me by a physio friend who had previously worked with him. I came to him complaining of pain in my knee after restarting running. He gave me fantastic advice and I had complete trust and faith in him. One of my most useful sessions was a discussion on pain psychology and how my heightened anxiety had escalated my perception of pain. Over a period of time I was able to incorporate Chris’s advice and get back to exercise. Throughout the whole experience, his kindness, level of empathy and understanding of my frustration was amazing and at times if I had a wobble, he was always there with quick response to an email. Since I have finished treatment with Chris he has emailed checking on my progress.”


Catherine Escott (Knee injury)

“Chris is brilliant. His focus was always on how he could provide a sustainable programme for me to maintain on my own away from sessions. He provided slides with pictures of various exercises to allow me to visit every few weeks and ensure the treatment was affordable. I’m now back playing regular sport and can’t thank him enough.”


Neal Kassell (Knee injury)

“I want to say a big thank you for getting my back sorted out at such a critical time. With your help I was able to complete the clearance of our industrial unit on time and go away on holiday with minimal discomfort – ten days of relaxation completed the cure. When I came to you first I could barely walk and after three treatments, exercises and advice I was reasonably fit. I am now back at the gym completely without pain. Many thanks!”


Julian Fishwick (Back pain)

“I have always been a keen golfer, and swim and walk every day, but last year had to have partial knee replacements to both knees. I decided to get them done at the same time but knew that I would need to be committed to the physiotherapy that followed. My knee specialist surgeon in London referred me to Chris at React Physiotherapy given his level of expertise in rehabilitating people with lower body injuries and giving them the confidence to get back to their chosen sport. After careful guidance and encouragement from Chris, I have steadily built up the level of exercise that I participate in and am back to playing golf on a weekly basis with minimal pain. I would highly recommend Chris at React for post-op physiotherapy.”


Peter Beddis (Double Knee Operation)

“After starting some running, I experienced pain in both knees resulting in me having to stop running altogether. Chris quickly diagnosed the problem and gave me advice and exercises to do to strengthen the muscles. After building up my running slowly, I am now able to run with no pain at all. Chris was also very flexible with my appointment time to enable me to go to the clinic to fit in with my family commitments.”


Sarah Hodgkiss (Knee pain)

“After suddenly experiencing debilitating pain as a result of sciatica, Chris from React Physiotherapy guided me through a series of exercises that led to a complete recovery. I would highly recommend this clinic for physiotherapy services. Friendly & welcoming too!”


Carolyn Beddis (Sciatica)

“Chris has been looking after me for over a year following a full hip replacement. I have suffered quite a few setbacks causing the recovery to be longer than I ever intended. No matter what problems I have encountered, Chris has always come up with a solution and I have complete faith in his knowledge and expertise. I would most certainly recommend React Physiotherapy.”


Christine Nokes (Hip replacement)

“After picking up an iliotibial band injury whilst doing a half marathon which stopped me from running for several months, I booked in with Chris from React and he provided some intensive exercise/stretching plans. I am now back running freely and pain free. I have recommended React to friends who have also booked appointments with Chris and would not hesitate to do so again in the future.”


Michael Forker (Iliotibial band injury)

“I worked with, and alongside Chris for ten years, providing medical and physiotherapy support to young elite sports people – aged between 8 and 21 years – within a premiership football club academy. Chris initially worked at the club on a part time basis, but through his integrity, honesty, high skill level and professionalism, gradually worked his way up to become head of academy sports science and medicine. Through hard work, organisation and dedication to deliver the best possible service, he can be credited with creating a safe, responsive environment in which young footballers were given the very best medical care. Chris is also a thoroughly nice, decent bloke and he comes highly recommended as a physio by me.”


Peter is a Senior Partner at Goodrest Croft Surgery & an Honorary Clinical Lecturer at Birmingham University.

“Chris is a physiotherapist who combines up to date research with his vast experience and expertise in treating athletes. Working alongside him has given me a unique insight into how to adapt rehabilitation programmes to the specific movement requirements of the individual athlete and the demands of their sport. I have learned a lot from Chris about maximising athletic development in order to deliver results.”
