Excellent physio. Micheal has successfully helped me deal with occasional back problems and sports related injuries. Cant recommend enough.

Hannah Padley

Very professional and friendly service, quick to respond to any enquiries. Quick to diagnose and help get the problem under control. Would definitely recommend!

Marcus Stirling

Brilliant service, went with sciatica pain and I found the treatment helped a great deal, very professional and takes time to explain everything clearly. I would highly recommend MH physiotherapy

Leslie Hunter

As always, Michael provided a top-class professional service when I recently attended with a calf and hip injury. Put me completely at ease and carried out one hours worth of examination and treatment. Explained thoroughly the cause of my injury and tailored a self-treatment and exercise plan for my rehab. Michael never rushes you and explains everything in a language you understand.

Don't just take it from us, hear what our clients have to say about MHphysiotherapy.

I had a bad fall in early December, shattering a number of vertebrae and had to have spinal fusion surgery. With Michael’s expert help and encouragement, I was able to get out of hospital in time for Christmas. Since then, he has helped me to walk normally again and has given me an exercise regime that has prepared my body for the removal of my neck and body brace. It’s not just Michael’s expertise that I’m praising, it’s also his empathy and respect for human dignity.

My heartfelt thanks to all at MH Physiotherapy.

I would highly recommend MH Physiotherapy, Michael is extremely knowledgeable and offers straight forward guidance. Have used various Physio's over a number of years and MH Physiotherapy stands out by far!

My husband Mervyn has been attending weekly physiotherapy sessions with Michael for 9 months now. We had contacted Michael 3 months into Mervyns recovery from a Stem Cell Transplant in Moscow. Rehabilitation was going to be a vital part of Mervyns recovery in order to maximise any potential he was to have from this treatment for his M.S. We knew of others in the same position as Mervyn who had worked with specialist Neuro-Physio's & we had hoped to do the same. But finding a Neuro Physiotherapist who was willing to work with us & at a cost we could afford wasn't easy. So I researched our local physiotherapists looking at reviews & Michael was the first local physiotherapist we contacted. Because we had to go overseas for this treatment not all health professionals we came into contact with trusted our judgement or our hopes for Mervyns rehabilitation. He was mostly wheelchair dependant with only a little mobility. Michael was the first professional to listen attentively to our hopes for treatment & whilst careful not to give us any false hopes for Mervyns mobility he did promise to work with us & do his absolute best to maintain & maximise any potential the stem cell transplant had given him. We were delighted with this & couldn't ask for more. Mervyns recovery has not been straightforward, infection risks & the impact of heavy duty chemotherapy have made his progress difficult at times. Michael has genuinely been a godsend to us during this recovery time. During these tougher times Michael has tailored the physio sessions to meet Mervyns physical abilities & equally when he has been doing well has given Mervyn achievable goals to reach for. When we first met Michael Mervyn could only walk a very short distance & was mostly wheelchair dependant, over the months of working with Michael he has seen significant improvements in his balance, coordination & mobility. He is less dependant on his wheelchair & when at his best can walk a greater distance than he has done in many years. Michael knew we were looking to have a personal trainer for Mervyn to work with him in a gym setting & we discussed this over several weeks with Michael as we were keen to get the right person who would be sensitive to Mervyns condition & his needs. We were delighted when Michael offered to help Mervyn work through a programme at a local gym & this has been of incredible benefit to his rehabilitation. The benefits of Michael's skills & professionalism don't just stop at Mervyn but benefit our family too. We have 2 little boys who have been enjoying dad doing more with them & being able to be more active in their lives & special occasions. Michael is really passionate about making a difference & this shines through. He makes you feel at ease & its been an absolute pleasure for us to get to know him over the months. Thank you so much Michael for your care & support, we are so grateful.

I would highly recommend Michael's services, he assessed my back pain and diagnosed a slipped disc. Michael worked away on my back and got me pain free very quickly.
He is a very friendly guy with great banter. His services are very affordable and his surgery is very easy to locate, there are loads of free parking spaces too which is a winner.
I would highly recommend MH Physiotherapy.


April 2018

Without any warning I suffered excruciating back pain that caused me huge discomfort and limited my mobility. Without hesitation I contacted Michael who was on a rare day off and attending to a family matter. Despite this Michael offered me advice via the telephone and arranged to open his clinic early the following day to treat me. On attending my appointment Michael was his usual calm, friendly and informative self. He immediately put me at ease and carried out a thorough examination of me. He identified where my problem was emanating from and treated the affected area while informing me what he was doing and why. He thereafter devised an exercise plan for me to aide my recovery which he was very patient in explaining and made sure I had grasped. My family and I have used Michael on a number of occasions and we all find him to be very professional and knowledgeable along with being very friendly and down to earth.

Michael is very approachable. On my first appointment, Michael put me right at ease. He found and explained the problem. Gave me advice and exercises to help with movement. He really does have healing hands.. First Class Physiotherapist!

E. McGurk said on the 26/01/2018:

Cannot recommend Michael enough. I've had so much issue and bother with a shoulder impingement, which I've received steroid injections for in the past, only for the problem to persist or come back. Today Michael, assessed, worked on and has GREATLY alleviated the pain, confident that with some more work and exercise we can get rid of it . :-) Happy me ! Being a Fitness Professional I rely on physical work in my job so this is good news to my ears . Thanks Michael

W. Nicholson said on 08/11/2017:

Having suffered for a while with what was believed to be Sciatica and getting no real relief from the pain, I was given Michael's details to try and get some help.
Just over 5 weeks and 3 treatments later and I feel like a brand new person.
I was diagnosed with piriformis syndrome which explained the issues I'd been having that didn't fit with just sciatica, Michael gave me great self help advice on stretches, etc to compliment his treatment and continue my recovery.
I would happily recommend MHphysiotherapy 100%. He's pleasant and welcoming from the first point of contact which puts you at ease straight away. Thanks again Michael. 

P Cram said on 31/07/2017:
It’s Michael’s passion for what he does that shines through.
Professionally knowledgeable in his field but can equally make you feel at ease which is just as important.
Excellent value for money and would recommend.

M Kelly said on 28/07/2017:
Started my treatment with Michael today, very knowledgeable and professional and takes time to explain the procedure he’s undertaking. Recommended highly.

Les Hunter, Grangemouth said on 18/07/2017:
Contacted Michael with regards a problem I had with my knee.  Prior to my appointment Michael took the time to assess my problem over the phone and provided advice on how to manage my injury which I appreciated.  During my appointment Michael was thorough and professional and quickly diagnosed my problem.  He was very pleasant and immediately put me at ease.  He then took the time to thoroughly explain my injury in a language I understood before treatment and  developing a care plan.   Top class service all round at a very reasonable price.

R Mullin said on 01/07/2017:
MH Physiotherapy is just the best. Michael is a fantastic physio and he really wants the best for you.
His costs are very affordable. The location is great, easy to find.
Loads of parking spaces and there is an on site cafe too.

D McEwan said on 01/06/2017:
Can’t recommend MH Physiotherapy highly enough. Both my ankle and shoulder injuries were treated and I’m really impressed with the level of pain free function that I have in them now. Reliable, affordable and effective, well done MH Physiotherapy.

S Wylie said on 18/05/2017:
I have used several physios before having Michael recommended by a friend. Never been more pleased by the service and treatment by a physio. Very affordable too.

N Montgomery said on 03/04/2017:

I can thoroughly recommend MH Physiotherapy having used their services twice for shoulder and back pain. Michael is very professional, knowledgeable and explained everything thoroughly, then discussed the best course of treatment for the injuries. Fees are very reasonable and there is free parking right at the door so you don’t need to hobble or limp too far. Michael offers flexible hours; is a very friendly guy; and most importantly, will get you back on your feet as quickly as possible.

Michael treated me for a problem with my hamstring tendon and was of tremendous help. He made a very thorough assessment and precise diagnosis, and devised a therapy plan in which I felt completely on-board all along. He asked me for my feedback regularly and answered all my questions, even between sessions. He is also a very friendly person and made me feel comfortable straight away. Recovery was very quick and complete and I'm back to my usual sports practice thanks to him.

Caroline Hunter, Grangemouth said on 20/03/2017:
Michael provided a very professional friendly service. Most importantly he provided excellent treatment for a back injury & devised an an exercise plan to compliment this and aid my ongoing recovery.

S Carey said on 13/02/2017:
Cannot recommend MHPhysiotherapy enough. Every time I get a niggle/injury Michael gets to the root cause and sorts me out quickly. After-care advice is always given and it allows me to get back to exercising quickly and with the knowledge of how to help prevent the issue re-occurring.

Scott Burns said on 19/01/2017:
I've seen Michael a few times over the last 2/3 years and he never disappoints. I was training for a 100 mile cycle recently but need an op on my knee so was getting a fair bit of pain. I seen Michael the week before the cycle and my Knee had never felt better during the 100 miles. Fully recommend Michael to everyone.

Claire Anderson said on 19/01/2017:I was injured at the start of April whist out running.i fractured my wrist and have an impinged shoulder I injured my hip and my back has been in pain since.after attending phisio through nhs and getting nowhere fast I booked an appointment with Michael I have had 3 appointments so far and can honestly say that the pain has greatly reduced and my range of movement has increased already.would highly recommend to anyone suffering any injury or pain.

Pauline Whitelaw- Having now been to Michael a few times( I have 2 injuries to my right arm) I can honestly say I can feel a massive difference already. I can't thank Michael enough! Movement is so much better. I have a long way to go, but with the exercises, and Michaels hard work I can see me doing press-ups soon enough Thank you very much Michael!!

Ashley Haughian -I've had three sessions so far and the difference is unreal. I honestly didn't expect results like this, three weeks ago I was crippled in agony with a slipped disc pressing on my sciatic nerve. Today I walked into my third session with a smile on my face!!

I would highly recommend Michael to anyone suffering in pain. He really knows what he's doing, explains everything he's doing and why, makes a future plan based on your specific needs and is just a really nice easy going guy who makes you feel at ease as soon as you walk in the door!And lets face it you really can't beat those prices!

Yvonne Fusco- Excellent, professional service. Will definitely recommend this place to my colleges in the NHS hospital I work in.

Don C - I had a fall over Christmas and was unable to walk any distance, let alone complete my usual 5k run, so I made an appointment with MHphysiotherapy. Michael put me at my ease straight away, diagnosed the problem and gave me my initial treatment there and then. I have been back a number of times, am walking with ease now and am about to start jogging and then build up to a proper run. I have a few more treatments to come, by which time I'll be back to normal. Highly recommended. The free parking is a bonus too.

Ria marshall -My son went to see Michael today after no luck at the doctors, Michael made him feel at ease and worked out what was wrong quickly, Calvin was really impressed and is looking forward to going back for more treatment. My son has Tourette's and normally has no confidence going to appointments on his own but Michael talked away to him and made such a difference so thank you so much.

Elaine Russell-Very professional and supportive - explained everything thoroughly and talked us through all treatment for my son - who is now fully fit after fantastic care by Michael

Blair Brian- I've been getting my sports injuries treated by Michael and I've always found him to be very professional. Michael has always got to the root of the problems and had me back on my feet playing my sport as soon as he could. He has the best price around and has always been very flexible around my shift patters, making time for me even if it didn't suit him the best! Great Physiotherapist and I would thoroughly recommend him to anyone looking for treatment.

Leeanne Robertson- After having slipped a disc, Michael had me back on my feet in no time.

Stephen HI can't thank MH Physiotherapy enough for all the help over the last year the service is amazing. They really know their stuff and have always got me playing rugby again at times when I thought it was not possible. Easy to access with the free parking outside the clinic door. After much checking they are clearly the most affordable physio in the area. 10/10.

 Vicky Wilson-I highly recommend anyone with an injury to contact Michael he is very knowledgeable and puts you at ease whilst explaining what is wrong the cause and effect and how with his help you are going to fix it. I would recommend his services to anyone.

Stephen Hunter- After a rugby injury to my shoulder I went to Michael at mhphysiotherapy. He is clearly a very experienced physio and after one appointment I felt so much better. If you play sports and are carrying injury I would fully recommend him. Thanks Michael.

Craig Russell-Michaels knowledge and experience stands him out against other physio's, the fact he's a nice guy and a gentleman aswell makes him highly recommendable to anyone needing physiotherapy!

Nicole WhyteHad issues with my shoulder for months, initial appointment today. Micheal was great in identifying the problem and getting to work on it.... Would recommend, great friendly service... See you next week

LoiseI cannot recommend Michael at MHphysiotherapy highly enough.Not only is he knowledgeable and an experienced physiotherapist, but he is very caring, and makes you feel at ease. Within a few minutes of meeting Michael, he explained everything to me.I honestly don't know how I would have made it through the last two months without Michael's help, advice and treatment. I have praised him highly to my family and friends and have no hesitation in recommending this skilled, talented man, to anyone looking for a physiotherapist. You won't find any better.

Anne-Marie Sneddon-First time at private physio and all I can say is thank you so much Michael. Didn't realise what a physio appiontment is meant to be like until today. I know I have work to do and poor Michaels fingers will be broken before I get all my work on my body. Lol. I will definitely be a regular to sort out my shoulder.

Alan Cruse- Excellent physio service at good prices.
