Alex, was a great Physio for not only myself but for the team. For the team he would sort out player specific exercises to improve areas of weakness to maximise your potential on the pitch. From a medical point of view, away at Sunderland I unfortunately suffered a double break of the mandible. Alex was on hand throughout everything from the X-rays to the transfer down from Sunderland to Leicester! I suffered the break roughly 1pm Alex didn't leave the hospital until 1am and frequently called and visited me whilst I was recovering.


Alex is not only a great Physio but a great guy who I would recommend to everyone!

Alex is a dedicated, hard working professional who is extremely thorough and detailed with every aspect of his work. He was an integral part of the LCFC Medical Department and was respected and more importantly trusted by all the players. He thrives to do the best for his players, using a combined approach of hands on therapy and his knowledge of rehabilitation. Consistently reflecting on his practice, Alex would ensure he was up to date with the latest research and clinical developments in order to provide his players with the best treatment possible. I would highly recommend his services.

Being a fitness enthusiastic for the past 15+ years it's surprising I hadn't had a sports massage before but having visited Alex at Excellence Physio, I won't be making that mistake again. Alex was a true professional; taking a thorough medical history, performing a postural analysis and fully examining my range of movement before quickly establishing where my weaknesses might be and focusing on those areas during the massage. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to anyone looking for physio rehab or for anyone simply wanting to stay in good shape and improve their performance in their regular fitness regime.


Friendly, approachable, and knowledgeable, Alex and the rest of the team are a great addition to health services in Oakham. Thank you Alex.

Would highly recommend Excellence Physiotherapy to any athlete. Alex demonstrated a truly professional and thorough approach, combined with an obvious intensive knowledge of the field. 

Having had an adductor tendinopathy for nearly a year, which had turned chronic due to the lack of success of previous rehabilitation efforts from different several physiotherapists, Alex put together a detailed rehabilitation program consisting of staged strengthening and mobility. After 12 weeks of work the progression made was huge and the adductor feels stronger than ever.

Alex's attention to detail and treatment of patients is second to none, alongside his clear passion for his work. Excellence Physiotherapy will be the first place I turn to in the event of any other injuries.

Thanks, Alex!

Big thanks to Excellence Physio for treating my hand injury, which helped me to complete my weekend of polo. With out your help I wouldn't have managed it.

Today was the first step, pardon the pun, on the road to recovery. A persistent hip problem that was previously treated with little success was looked at again today. An hour with Alex building up the history of the problem, a new and accurate diagnosis of the underlying issue, manipulation and a whole new exercise plan have reassured me that it can be sorted out. A thoroughly relaxed, professional and friendly service with achievable goals. Thank you Alex, see you again in 2 weeks...

No better place to go for injury rehabilitation than Excellence Physiotherapy. Alex has helped me recover from a number of injuries, one being a grade 3 hamstring tear.

Prior to this diagnosis, I have had numerous problems with my hamstrings having pulled them on several occasions. Through treatment second to none and rehabilitation programmes specifically designed for my needs containing a gradual increase in intensity I was back to full strength in a matter of weeks.

Alex is a true professional and has a vast range of knowledge and great attention to detail in this profession. Excellence Physio is the first place I shall go and recommend in any event of injury.

His efforts are greatly appreciated.

Cheers Alex.

London Marathon Runner

I visited Alex about 8 weeks ago when I couldn’t run a mile without knee pain, setting back my London marathon training quite significantly. Since then, Alex has done a brilliant job keeping the alternating knee/hip problems at bay through acupuncture, massage, strengthening exercises and guidance. Amazingly, as a result of this, I was pain free on and after marathon day. Having previously said I was never running again I am now keen to enter more running challenges so will no doubt be visiting again and would highly recommend Excellence Physio.

After years of discomfort in my neck and shoulders, Alex has been the only physiotherapist I’ve seen who has successfully treated this. Even better than this is the work he has done to help me understand what I need to do myself to improve and drastically reduce the symptoms. I’m now virtually pain free and would highly recommend Excellence Physiotherapy.

Alex was extremely professional, knowledgeable & friendly, giving me thorough and specific recovery advice to fit in with my existing schedule. Thanks to his great service I should now be able to complete my marathon pain & injury free - highly highly recommended!

Alex is fabulous. Went to see him with a rugby caused ACJ shoulder injury. Had very limited movement or rotation but within 12 weeks was back to full movement with a return to play programme. Still do the rehab exercises today and it hasn’t flared up since. Thanks Alex!!

I've been a regular at Excellence Physio for over a year now. Initially for a recurring knee/ITB issue but also for a regular sports massage. Alex was very thorough in my initial consultation and has continued to be professional and knowledgable, always explaining things clearly. At each new session even for a sports massage, Alex takes time to get a clear picture of any possible problem areas so that these can be addressed. The regular sessions with Alex have contributed to my confidence in completing my first marathon last year and he has been part of my preparation before and recovery after each of my races since.
