Steve joined Advanced Physiotherapy in 2022 to service the needs of patients living with fear and pain who haven’t got better due to lacking anyone involved in their care truly listening to their problems, not being examined properly, not having effective hands-on treatment or not doing adequate rehabilitation for their condition. Steve will help you move, feel and perform better where treatment has failed elsewhere.

“Steve is very trustworthy and honest. He has an incredible hard work-ethic and is prepared to work as long as it takes to get the job done. Steve cares deeply about people and is prepared to work tirelessly to find solutions to their problems.
