For many years I have needed physiotherapy treatments and during that time I have been treated by several Physiotherapists. Fortunately for me I was recommended, by a Physiotherapist, to consult Jill as she has dual expertise in physiotherapy and acupuncture.
Jill is an excellent therapist as she combines her dual skills with a great deal of kindness and I always leave the surgery feeling optimistic and a great deal better than when I arrived.
I have no hesitation in recommending Jill.
HI Jill, Thought I would let you know, we have just got back from two weeks in France in Jean. It was our first trip abroad in her and very successful. I am really pleased though that I was able to walk every day, usually just over a mile which doesn’t sound a lot but considering before I came to see you I couldn’t walk at all, so thank you for all your help.
I now manage to go up and down stairs unaided which is a real boon for me, we live downstairs but I have a craft room upstairs so I can now come and go without A’s help. I am driving too which is one thing I found painful at first but now no problem.
I can’t say I am pain free all the time but that what is left is manageable, so much better than 6 months ago. I will be in touch with you again if needed. BUT, in the meantime, thank you again for your help and support.
The pain in my heel and foot have all but disappeared, I went swimming on Friday which included kick sets and fast turns and the pain was around 10-20% of what it was and this only lasted a short while. I also had to do some jogging on Saturday as I was late for the theatre and again there was little to no pain in the foot. However, I have still be having the discomfort in the ankle like we discussed, so I have replaced the arch support insoles for the gel impact insoles which seems to of helped.
Jill has been a life saver – If I had stayed with the physio given to me after my Steroid injections in my shoulder I would have done more damage than good. Jill is so clever looking at the entire picture, not just the ‘shoulder’ I went in for. There was much more to my injury and Jill really did spot it and help me return to good health. She came highly recommended and I would also recommend you give her a try. Easy to work with and really cares. June 2019.
I just wanted to let you know that since finishing physio with yourself my left shoulder pain has now healed completely after all these months. Many thanks for all the treatment I received from yourself. Its nice to be pain free once more! (June 2019)
Jill also sorted out a recovery plan and additional physio exercises to help me with other tight tendon related issues I was struggling with at the time.
Her experience and ability to help you understand the root cause of your individual condition and then guide you through treatment options really helped me focus on what I needed to do to get the best result from the physio sessions themselves.
I can say as a result of Jills work that I have recovered good levels of mobility (during and post completing my physio sessions with Jill).
In summary a very experienced physiotherapist who can really help you get back to doing what ever you love to do!
I recently had an arthroscopic shoulder stabilisation operation and was in desperate need for follow up physiotherapy. In light of the COVID-19 lockdown, I was unable physically visit a physiotherapy practice. As such, I arrange an online consultation with Jill over Skype.
The set up was simple via clicking on a Skype link on my laptop (which I plugged into my large screen TV) and we were quickly speaking whilst seeing each other on our screens. As a specialist in shoulder injuries, Jill was able to expertly answer my questions, advise on a rehabilitation plan and demonstrate exercises. Having the screen allowed me to practice the exercises and for Jill to fine tune my technique.
I found the session invaluable and am looking forward to the next online meeting.
I was referred to Jill when I was in a lot of pain with one of my knees and lower back.
I was apprehensive about having physiotherapy but my fears were completely unfounded. Jill is lovely!
As well as possessing a great depth of knowledge and many years’ experience as a Physiotherapist, Jill is also professional, personable and friendly. It was a pleasure (and a huge relief!) to meet Jill and I took away a renewed sense of hope and reassurance from my first session.
Due to the ongoing physiotherapy sessions I had with Jill and the exercises that she gave me to do, the pain in my knee and back considerably diminished.
I would recommend Jill to anyone in need of an excellent Physiotherapist.
I saw Jill Drew with low back pain. She was so friendly and put me at ease straight away. She physically examined me and then showed me some exercises to do. After following the exercises, I feel so much better. I would strongly recommend Jill.
I would like to cancel my appointment with you this week on Thursday . I now have no pain in my neck or arm, the pins and needles have almost gone and just the very end of my little finger is slightly numb. Every day it is getting better and the symptoms are improving.
Thank you also for the suggestion of asking work for a proper chair, it has really helped. I can not thank you enough for all your care. When I came to you I was in agony and now once again you have sorted me out.
I’m in my 70’s and last year had a fall from 10ft fracturing two vertebrae. I was in such pain that I thought I would never be right again. fortunately I was put in touch with Jill Drew. I was sceptical about physiotherapy but after the consultation it was obvious I had no idea how to recover from the trauma. The hospital had supplied a back brace which had helped but also weakened my back muscles.. Jill was quick to spot that and gave me exercises the results in just a week were nothing short of miraculous .A variety of exercises followed over the next two months and I am now on top of the world. By accident I fell and by accident found the perfect person to put it right . Many thanks.
Jill is great, I first saw her around a year ago with bad back pain due to protruding discs, we worked through lots of physio exercises to help with my core muscles to try and reduce the pain and prevent it happening again. Unfortunately it did recently come back with worse shooting leg pains. So I booked an appointment with Jill, and this time we trying acupuncture while doing the previous exercises, I was very sceptical about acupuncture actually working. But after one session it already started to feel better and the shooting leg pains basically disappeared, I’m still going to Jill for more sessions because she is very friendly and makes me feel very comfortable.

Jill first treated me after I had surgery on my shoulder. I found her to be extremely professional and knowledgeable as well as being very friendly and approachable. When I developed further problems with a frozen shoulder, Jill immediately ascertained what the problem was and due to her treatment and intervention I have remained problem free ever since. When I developed a recent problem with my knee I went straight back to Jill, who by using her extensive knowledge and experience referred me to a knee specialist and I am now pain free. I will always use Jill in the future if I ever need physiotherapy treatment again and I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone requiring treatment.
