Adelina has been brilliant. I have come to her with three injuries in 3 different limbs and she is brilliant at diagnosing using several test movements. Her exercise plans are very full-on but that just makes the injury heal more quickly. Friendly, COVID-safe, informative, and flexible. Would definitely recommend.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.
If you are in need of a physiotherapist in the Oxford area then I highly advise coming to this practice.read more

I have followed few sessions of physiotherapy with Spires Physiotherapy Oxford after a car accident. I had few issues with my back neck and rigidity with body posture caused by the post traumatic shock.
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. She operated massive change not only in regards to my medical condition but also on a personal level helping me out to prioritise actions for my family sake.
Thank you Adelina, you are a true teacher, a friendly one!read more

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 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 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 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.

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.

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

Since my first session, I have seen improvements to my stability and strength and this has enabled me to take up cycling and return to weight training.

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

Two weeks before the marathon I suffered awful shin splints and Joe gave me great advice and exercises to do in advance to get me through the day. Post marathon, he helped identify the wear and tear on my body (not just legs!) and I was able to recover fully. Would definitely recommend.read more

I came in with a pain in my shin that I was getting whilst running, a few months before a marathon I had entered. I was expecting a massage to remove the pain and to be sent on my way. Instead Joe took a very proffessional approach and assessed what was causing the pain and how best to combat it.
Over a few sessions and months, we built up a gym routine around my muscular deficiencies that allowed me to complete the entire marathon without any abnormal muscular or joint pain.

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

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
