What to Expect

The role of a physiotherapist is to facilitate healing and prevent chronic pain and movement conditions. This requires a detailed assessment from which your Spires Physiotherapist will give you a diagnosis which, alongside your own rehabilitation goals, will help to determine how your condition is managed. You and your physiotherapist will set your goals and agree your treatment and management plan collaboratively. You will be guided and supported every step of the way so that you can recover to full function and get back to doing the things you love, whether it be dancing, gardening or sports.

At your assessment, you will be asked a number of questions so that your physiotherapist can collect a detailed history of your symptoms. They will also need to perform a physical examination based on the history you’ve provided. Please wear comfortable clothing which allows the physiotherapist to see the affected areas of your body. Once the assessment has provided a diagnosis for your symptoms, you will receive treatment and a rehabilitation programme based on the current research evidence for your condition.

Please call us if you have any questions or wish to discuss your symptoms before booking an initial assessment session.

All our physiotherapists are chartered, DBS checked and registered with the Health and Care Professions Council.

I have been seeing Adelina for a number of months for help with my knee which was extremely painful and hard to walk on. She has been a delight to work with and has provided a series of progressive exercises which have transformed my life. I am now back to dancing, swimming and walking. I can't recommend her highly enough - she is very thorough, professional and always ready to explain the reasons behind her programme. A gem!read more

I went to see Adelina and she was excellent. She did a very thorough assessment of my calf strain and gave me a detailed and reassuring exercise programme to follow. I was able to contact her with any questions and followed up after 3 weeks to see how I was doing. I was able to keep running whilst strengthening my calf and she has enabled me to trust my calf again. A great physio experience.read more

I had treatment for back and arm pain. Emma's advice was very clear and helpful, and the films of people doing the exercises were useful to refer to at home.

Really glad to have found Emma at Spires Physio. After a really thorough assessment I was given an ever changing plan of quite demanding rehab exercises which have really made a world of difference. Having a recovery plan was really important so I could see progress and get back to my previous sports. She reigned me in when necessary but also encouraged me to push myself when I was starting to doubt myself. Without this plan I suspect I would be pretty much where I was several months ago. There is still some work to be done but pleased to say I am more than on the right track. Having seen a couple of people previously this was in a league of its own!read more

I went to Spires for help with RSI in my wrist, due to home office strain. Adelina was just brilliant at helping me with this. She was very good at putting me at ease and reassuring me that my hand was not, in fact, about to fall off. Besides a really effective and adaptive set of exercises, which she gradually changed over time, she gave me plenty of ideas and tips for how to manage this onwards. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to anyone I know.read more

I started treatment with Adelina for a chronic ankle injury earlier in the year and she was quick to determine the root cause of my woes. Adelina gave me a treatment plan that I felt was suitable for my needs and quickly progressed healing of my ankle and prevention of future injuries. I really feel that the treatment was to a very high standard, Adelina was very personable and quick to provide the information and support I required.

Miss Adelina Florea is not only an exceptional physiotherapist with strengths in her ability to adjust physical impairment but a sensible, informed and spiritual leader when operating a very hygienic thought process for a rapid recovery. I cannot thank enough to Adelina for being consistent with her methods and keeping a high level of optimism.

I am recovering from being in a full arm cast for 3 months after a badly broken wrist and I had my first physio session one week after lockdown, so the first sessions had to be virtual. Joe prepared a tailored programme to test my limitations and really push my body to regain as much mobility and strength as possible, all over Skype. The surgeon predicted that I would get a maximum of 80% mobility back, but with Joe's extensive exercise list, attentive manner and encouragement I have regained more mobility and strength than I thought possible. Joe is also always available to answer questions via email between sessions. I have had an amazing experience with Joe, and I would recommend anyone to go to this clinic if you want a personal and professional service.read more

I have been struggling with Middle back injury that was getting steadily worse to the point that I could not play golf anymore. Adelina worked with me over 5 sessions , gradually changing the program as I recovered to strengthen not only my back area , but other muscle groups including shoulder and hips to ensure that my back was not overloaded. I am back playing and continuing with an ongoing strengthening program. Adeline was very supportive and helpful. Highly recommended. Thanksread more

Joe has been advising and caring for my sports injuries for only 8 weeks or so and already I have no pains and aches, his advice is all sound and he wants you to get better not feel better, meaning you solve the problem of why you are experiencing pain, not covering it up with massages and the like. I have a bad knee due to IT band and weakness as well as neck pain from rotator cuff deficiency. He is a sports expert and has given me tips and knowledge on how to avoid the injuries above again, and improve my athleticism at the same time, by making the muscle groups that are deficient stronger and more active. He supports your recovery and program via email very thoroughly and is extremely helpful and a good laugh too. One of the best practitioners I have met full stop in the medical industry, five stars from me!read more

I saw Evangelos for rehab after a fractured collarbone from a bike racing accident. He was very professional and I was made to feel comfortable on every visit. I saw Evangelos weekly to start with, he gave me different exercises to do each time as I progressed and was always happy to answer any questions I had. I also saw Joe for a running injury 2 weeks before a marathon, I wasn't sure if I would be able to do it but with advice and support from Joe I did complete the marathon. I would highly recommend Evangelos and Joe, they both really know their stuff and gave me a lot of confidence to get back to my sports.read more

I was referred for physiotherapy following a broken wrist and ongoing pain and weakness in my hand and joint. I had been struggling with the lack of strength in my hand and was delighted with the exercises and work that Adelina did with me. Together we improved the strength in my hand and I discovered ways to reduce the pain without pain relief tablets. The sessions were fantastic and the 'home work' was a great way to keep me focused and on track between sessions. Adelina even emailed me exercise examples after my session so I could remind myself what movements I should be doing. Overall a great experience and Adelina put me at ease as soon as I began working with her. Thank you!read more

I had been training really hard this year building high intensity running intervals into my training for an Olympic triathlon in July. Only eight weeks before the event as I walked downstairs the morning after a hill set I knew something was wrong and that I needed to see a physio. Following advice from a friend went to see Adelina at Spires Physiotherapy. It was the best decision I could have made. Adelina guided me through rapid but careful rehabilitation and I was able to get back to running and getting a PB in the thriathlon. Through the process Adelina taught a great lot and now I have stepped up my training and improved my performance from a much better basis. Adelina is knowledgeable, professional and caring. But you have to put in the work to get the results ...read more

I went to see Joe as I had been suffering on and off from chronic neck pain for several years. We had three sessions over the course of a few months. He was able to identify the main causes of the pain and gave me corrective exercises that were manageable but progressively more challenging from session to session. He also gave me advice on how to manage pain following flare ups. Joe was very professional throughout and was good at explaining both the causes of my pain and the reasoning behind the exercises he suggested. I have not had a serious flare up for several months now which is a drastic change from how things were before. I would definitely recommend Joe as a physio.read more

For 6 months I had constant pain in my jaw and mouth relating to TMJ. This is a very specialist issue that not many consultants can actually help with. I have been seeing Evangelos at Spires Physiotherapy since May18 and due to the exercises and specialist acupuncture he has given me I have seen tremendous improvements. In particular my facial pain has reduced, but most importantly I’ve gained movement back in my jaw. Before having any treatment I could barely open and close my mouth properly. I would highly recommend booking an appointment if you are struggling with TMJ problems.read more

I'd recently been to an osteopath and then a physiotherapist for treatment of lower back pain, I was staying in Kent and found local help. I had some relief for a couple of weeks, but then the pain came back even worse. I'd moved to Oxford and I found Joe online. As I was driving to his rooms the pain was so severe I had to stop on the side of the road. He examined me thoroughly and explained that the problem was with a facet joint, he massaged and worked on the area. That was a week ago and since then I've done the exercises he suggested and I've had no pain since. He certainly worked his magic on me. I've been to several physiotherapists over the years and I think he's up there with the best.read more

Instead Joe took a very proffessional approach and assessed what was causing the pain and how best to combat it.

I was referred to Spires Physiotherapy following a road traffic accident with whiplash-related injuries to my neck, back and shoulder. I found the treatment I received to be both thorough and professional, and hugely beneficial. The exercises prescribed took into consideration my physical limitations, yet challenged me enough to regain mobility at a good rate. I found the service to be informed and engaging. Each time I finished a session I felt noticeably better. What impressed me the most about Spires Physiotherapy was its clear emphasis on rehabilitation. Never once did I feel that my sessions would need to carry on indefinitely, or that the pace of treatment was too slow. Each session was paced well, and I understood the part it played in my overall recovery. I offer my strongest recommendation to Spires Physiotherapy. The treatment I received from chartered physiotherapist, Joseph Korge, was outstanding. I was consistently impressed with his knowledge, professionalism, interpersonal abilities, and compassion. Additionally, his previous experience with sports injuries (for professional sports teams) and his active research status are extremely impressive, and are evident in the high-quality treatment I experienced. An exemplary service. I've started running again, and hope to enter races again before too long!read more

His patience, understanding, and individualized plan was key to my recovery and actually helped me become a stronger and smarter athlete than before. I've been to many physios throughout my sports career and Joe is overwhelmingly the most dedicated to his patient's success. I would recommend Spires Physiotherapy to anyone considering an appointment.read more

Joe is a fantastic, professional, understanding and top quality Physiotherapist. Having tried and failed with many other physiotherapists before to help with a shoulder injury, I decided to see Joe, and what a decision. Joe Helped to figure out the actual cause of the problem instead of just treating symptoms. Definitely would recommend to anybody. Thanks for your help Joeread more

I am so fortunate to find Spires Physiotherapy. Joseph gave me a thorough physical assessment and was the first to diagnose my problem as being Lumbar Radiculopathy. Joseph also proposed a staged tailored treatment plan to enable me to cope with pain and get me through long days at work and extensive travel. After only two weeks of exercises, I started getting significant pain relief! I am so very grateful to Joseph for (1) taking the time to diagnose my problem (2) designing a tailored exercise programme and (3) explaining what the problem was and how it can be successfully treated without other more serious medical interventions. Joseph has also been a coach as to how I can achieve my personal goals of restored physical mobility, improved energy, ability to continue work and enjoy life. Thank you Joseph!read more

Joe is just great - he not only helped me get back to running after an Achilles injury, he also identified the biomechanics issues which contributed to the injury in the first place and gave me an acchievable exercise plan to correct them. He listens, he explains, and he totally knows what he is doing - can't recommend him highly enough. Go and see him!read more

I have been exceptionally pleased by the quality of service that Joe has provided. He is reasonably priced and very generous with his time and has a knack of providing just about the correct amount of theory to ensure that I am aware of what I need to do and why.read more

I couldn't recommend Joe highly enough. He gave me good stretches to help me with a pain in my leg and now he's helping me to strengthen my muscles so I'm less prone to injury. He really knows what he's talking about. I recently found out some of my colleagues are seeing him too and they also rate him very highly. Thanks Joe!read more

I had six weeks to go before a 3-week cycling endurance challenge, and I didn't feel 100 percent. Joe was recommended by a work colleague and listened to my thoughts and fears, and put together a programme that specifically targeted my weaknesses. I should have gone to him sooner, but his programme worked wonders and I completed the challenge. I'd recommend Joe very strongly, and will get in contact again if I injure myself, or plan another endurance challenge. Thanks again, Jamieread more
