Having worked with Steve he is undoubtedly one of the most professional and consistent physiotherapists that I have come across. Steve has an excellent background working with Premiership and International rugby players and is confident in his abilities to perform under extreme pressure and circumstances. Steve's attention to detail in planning and treatment is of the highest quality, no stone is left unturned. Always thinking of the athlete, Steve challenges the player to push their own boundaries into making themselves robust and durable. An efficient, hardworking and dedicated Physio would be a credit to any organisation looking to gain that edge in athletic performance."

"I've worked with Steve for over 5 years in both full-time and consulting roles and continue to be impressed by his skilled approach as a professional, high quality clinician. Steve offers a practical and integrative systems based approach throughout his work; which means that daily communications, weekly evaluations and forward planning are thorough and designed to continually evolve the athletes treatment and return to training process time frames. 


Perhaps the best recommendation I can offer for Steve's work is this quote by one of our Rugby athletes "I know that if I get injured I'm not worried, because when I walk into Steve's room I'm going to get better! He helps me understand why I got injured, what is the best treatment to get me fit in the quickest time and how we're going to make sure I stay fit - this makes me really confident". 


This is a brief collection of reasons why I continue to place confidence in his services with my World Class British Ski & Snowboard athletes. Every athlete wants the security in knowledge that they are going to receive the best treatment and support - Steve undoubtedly demonstrates this time over."

"After a frustrating 6 months of NHS physio I turned to Steve. He explained my knee problem clearly and gave me good simple exercises which enabled me to make progress and see results quickly!"



"I have worked with Steve in his capacity as lead physiotherapist with Yorkshire Carnegie for over 3 years. He is an extremely, capable, caring and diligent club therapist. He has an excellent knowledge of shoulder injuries and appropriate management, particularly sports-specific shoulder rehab after surgery. It is a pleasure and honour working with him"



"I sought treatment from Steve after suffering restricted movement and excruciating neck and back pain on and off for years. The treatment was painless and with Steve's guidance I was able to perform the given exercises at home very easily and I'm now free from all the symptoms I previously had. A fantastic treatment from an excellent Physio. Highly recommended."

"I’ve worked with Steve since 2012 and through my preparation for the 2014 Winter Olympics to present. Athletes get injured in my sport very often and Steve has treated me for many injuries ranging from my foot all the way to my shoulder. He has also done a lot of work with me on injury prevention, which is of course very important. I am sure it is largely because of this work that I haven’t sustained any major injuries such as broken bones or torn ligaments since working with him. He is very reliable, extremely knowledgeable and a great guy to work with. I would recommend him to absolutely anyone!"

"Stephen is an excellent and innovative practitioner! As a player I lost count of the amount of times he helped support me maintaining and regaining fitness so I was able to play the weekend's fixture! 


Stephen knows when and how hard to push an athlete in their rehabilitation or maintenance of fitness and he is always keen to further and develop his knowledge. This is demonstrated in the techniques he uses or programmes he prescribes. Now as a colleague and a coach I completely trust his opinion on a player's wellbeing and management, he has given me greater understanding of what to expect from rugby players. He is a great friend, professional and someone who would only add great value to any team or organisation he is part of."

"I couldnt recommned Steve highly enough to anyone. I feel very comfortable with him and he thoroughly analyses my progress at each appointment. I have seen so much improvement in my injuries and by following his treatment programme I live a pain free life!"



"Steve was exceptional, easily diagnosing my injury, discussing my treatment and rehab goals, getting me back to playing badminton better than ever before. For once I've had no re-injury, unlike with previous episodes of treatment and we built a great rapport along the way. Steve is surely one of the most highly recommended physio's in Leeds, if not Yorkshire."
