After injuring my ankle at a netball tournament back in the spring, I was able to go on and complete my Duke of Edinburgh Award after enduring a 26 km expedition over one of the hottest weekends. This was all thanks to the wonderful team at Elite Physical Medicine, specifically the fast rehabilitation I was able to achieve from Nicola without whom I would’ve potentially been out of netball for the beginning of the season.


I had a phone consultation with Tom, recommended from a friend. Spoke through my ongoing knee issue which multiple specialists have been unable to identify, talked through my history with the problem and immediately Tom recognised the pains I have been experienced and perfectly described the feelings I have been getting in my knee without me saying it. He then proceeded to explain what the issue was, put a plan in place to ensure it gets better. This was all within 20 minutes. Cannot thank him enough for this and means I can tackle the London marathon knowing what I need to do now.

I can’t thank Andy at Elite enough for recommending a course of Shock Wave Therapy when I found myself suffering with Plantar Fasciitis in my right foot.
I had followed the NHS treatment advice for two months but the pain when standing up after resting was still excruciating and my foot was now swelling up during the day.
The effect of Shock Wave Therapy on the pain was remarkable and I would strongly recommend trying it if you are suffering with Plantar Fasciitis.

The Oxford English Dictionary describes ‘Elite’ as a select group. Indeed so! Whether it is shoulder, leg fracture, neck, or whatever, highly qualified therapists will always ‘come up trumps’ with appropriate treatment at Elite.

I came to Elite after being diagnosed with slipped discs, Andy McCrea was my appointed physio, and his exercise program, and support for me were both excellent, every time I walked through the door I felt down and tired with this injury, however the treatment I received from Andy meant I always left feeling less pain and more positive in my attitude to getting well.

I’m so glad I had postnatal check up and mummy MOT with Gemma after my emergency C section. For this pregnancy I have been doing the prenatal classes which have been so helpful in helping me remember the importance of breath work with pelvic floor exercises and ensuring I carve out the time away from my toddler to complete the class which can be so hard to do.

Zoe, Womens Health patient
It’s now 12 months since the operation and the attached photo was taken at Danby Beacon on the Esk Valley Walk, North Yorkshire, part of a 3 day 25 mile walk which I did with friends just 4 months after the procedure. The treatment, guidance and support that I received from Paul and Andy have helped me to make a full recovery, allowing me to do any activity I wish, apart from any more marathons!

“I got around the marathon in 3:38 which I was chuffed with being the first time, it was brilliant fun with an amazing atmosphere.
The great news is that my hip didn’t hold me back on the day, the strengthening worked!
Thank you for all your help and advice in the weeks leading into it. I definitely have more to give if I can continue to get my legs into the right shape.”

Luke, Patient of Emma's

I am delighted to provide a written testimonial for you. Since the inception of Elite Physical Medicine, I have been impressed by both the degree of professionalism and also care that is provided. You and your colleagues have consistently been praised by patients when I have referred them to you, and I value your close working relationship.

Dr Andy Theobald FRCGP
I worked with Andy from Elite Physical Medicine for a number of months due to a torn cartilage in my knee. The customer experience I received was outstanding. After one session, Andy had diagnosed the issue and then followed this up by writing to my GP and Consultant. Post my operation, Andy was very supportive and knowledgeable as I went through rehab. This involved explaining how the knee was repairing, exercises required and very inspirational in driving me to fully recover and very patient. I was so impressed that I recommended Andy to my wife when she had tennis elbow. Again, she received a first class experience. Thank you Andy.

Mr R. Kankate MB BS MS FRCS (Trauma and Ortho), Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon

We have always been delighted with the help, advice and service from Elite as well as the results after injuries on all members of our family. I wanted to write a review this time as Andy McCrea has totally gone above and beyond the call of duty, with help and advice, phone calls and letters, some out of hours calls all to help with my son’s injury. Another first class service, thank you so much Andy!

Sam Tidey

Being a competitive rower, it was rather a huge hindrance in working progress when I fractured my ankle, and did critical soft tissue damage to all the ligaments and tendons as well. Initially, it was thought I’d need surgery on the ankle but after going to Elite Physical Medicine for a number of sessions it seemed to be that an operation wouldn’t be necessary. I’d used Elite Physical Medicine in the past and therefore had every faith in their ability. I’m now training and competing again to the same standard and intensity as previously.

Charli Cobb
Elite have provided excellent rehabilitation post ACL surgery. I now have full confidence that my knee is strong and stable enough to comfortably withstand all the demands associated with horse riding.
Julia Pickering

The team at Elite Physical Medicine did a fantastic job for me – not only did they quickly understand and diagnose exactly what was causing my Achilles problem, they also put my mind at rest that I wasn’t at high risk of a rupture. The recovery program was ideal for me – gradual return to exercise, specific exercises at their gym and at home, and lots of positive encouragement to reinforce my progress. I was really impressed with Paul – he took a chronic, frustrating problem and steadily got me back to normal again. Thanks for all your help and keep up the great work!
