I was referred to Paul Macintyre by an awesome ER Dr who also saw Paul. That in itself was good enough. In fact she gave me one of his appointments because it was pretty difficult to get in.Paul's experience is validated by not only his thorough and accredited knowledge of athletic physiology, but by also carrying around a pretty beaten up one of his own. More validation.Expect a friendly (like walking into someone's living room kinda feel) atmosphere and also the satisfaction that you're working with the most up to date equipment.Nothing but great things to say about this physiotherapist.Office staff are pretty cool too. There. 🏋️‍♀️read more

I went to Broadmead Physio after struggling to get back on the bike after a severe round of patella/knee pain. Jacob identified the root cause and worked with me to design a strengthening program to treat the underlying issue and not just the symptoms. I went from a fully locked up knee and limping around to back on the bike and being active withing a few weeks. Great service at Broadmead, and I highly recommend them.read more
