Thoracic release

I recently made an appointment with Jane to access my back /shoulder pain. I am a massage therapist and often find my thoracic spine becomes locked due to my posture whilst working. I had problems holding a cup when I first visited Jane. After just one treatment Jane released my (solid) shoulders and gave me exercises to keep everything loose . I recommend Jane to my clients if they need physio. She is a very thorough compassionate physio. Thank you for getting me back to work and pain free.

Jane had been strongly recommended and I’m so glad I sought her help.
She is highly professional . The treatment she has given, the exercises she has prescribed and her supportive and encouraging approach have led me to be optimistic that improvement and progress will continue long after our sessions have ended.

I saw Jane for my first appointment yesterday and was extremely impressed by her approach. She understood my problems immediately and gave me a list of exercises to do. The latter are very doable and, I feel sure, will help me with my condition. She is also a very pleasant and friendly person. Many thanks, Jane.

Thank you!

I’d been suffering with back pain for about 18 months and instead of doing something about it I just made adjustments to my day to help me deal with it.
When it started to get worse I decided it was time do something and I made an appointment with Jane.
After only a couple of sessions the pain had eased and I was getting back to my old self. I only wished I hadn’t left it so long to make an appointment.
I can’t thank Jane enough for all of her help!

Shoulder injury

  1. I contacted Jane during lockdown with a shoulder injury. We had an initial appointment via zoom and I’ve since had three face to face appointments. Jane’s knowledge and experience was evident at each appointment. She explained my injury to me in an easy to understand way, and really listened to the impact it was having on day to day activities and the exercise I enjoy. After identifying the problem she gave me easy to follow exercises, with clear instructions. She is always quick to reply to an email in between sessions if there was something I had forgotten how to do! Her advice is not only realistic, but also encouraging and I felt very motivated through her support. I have no hesitation in highly recommending her.

Highly Recommend

I contacted Jane a couple of weeks ago after an ankle injury and Jane fitted me in for an apt within a few days. Having assessed the injury Jane gave me some exercises to do together with the reassurance to do some light exercise alongside them. Jane explained everything and talked me through the exercises, organised a very clear handout & videos so all very easy to follow. Returning to Jane today for a follow up, she was very pleased with my progress. A new set of exercises were explained for my next stage of the recovery. There is still a little way to go for my ankle injury to recover fully, however Jane has given me the tools and confidence to work with and start getting back to my regular exercise routine again. I would highly recommend Jane, who is very knowledgeable, takes time to explain everything in a clear way and above all has a friendly and personable manner. Thank you Jane 🙂

Highly Recommend

With the help of Jane, my long and desperate lower back pain journey has finally reached the place of genuine help.
I’m always treated as an valued individual; Jane takes time to listen and has assisted enormously with hands-on therapy, whilst arming me with the tools of home exercises and gentle lifestyle changes in order to best reclaim long term health and quality of life.

Jane Cowley’s unique service and expertise have helped to relieve my pain and provided the invaluable gift of hope.

Excellent treatment

I visited Jane following the painful reoccurrence of an old Achilles injury, and a recommendation from a friend.
Within 3 weeks the improvement was significant and although there remains some way to go, after 5 weeks, I have returned to most of my regular activities. Jane’s knowledge is exceptional and she is keen to work with you , instead of telling you what you should or shouldn’t be doing. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for immediate and long term injury recovery.

Great remote physio session!

I’d had a painful twinge in my left quad region for a few weeks and wasn’t quite sure what the issue was and if I should rest or keep up my exercise programme. Jane provided an online consultation using zoom which soon put my mind at rest. Jane took the time to isolate the possible issue (a quad strain), with some exercises and movements. Jane gave some great advice, particularly about warming up and down for running, along with an easy to follow set of exercises to help get me back on track. Jane has a great approach to identifying your issue, giving some clear guidance and, where possible, enabling you to keep exercising as part of your recovery.

Thanks Jane!

Great service – as ever! Thank you.

Over the past few weeks I have had consultations with Jane – both online via Zoom and face to face – and have found her advice, prescribed exercise regime and treatment to be as clear and easy to understand as ever Jane explains in simple terms what is causing the problem, what can be done to make things better and gives realistic expectations for how/when the improvement will be noticed. I always feel comfortable consulting with Jane and confident in her ability to help.
I would highly recommend Jane to everyone for their pain and mobility issues.

Lower back pain

I was very impressed with the holistic assessment and exercise plan I received from Jane who I found to be both knowledgeable and professional.

Hands on appointment

After my first virtual appointment a couple of weeks ago which got me started on some exercises to relieve my shoulder I had a face to face consultation yesterday with Jane. I’m really happy with the new exercises, Jane was very thorough in explaining how to do them and took video on my phone to remind me of how to carry them out unaided.

I have just had my initial session on Zoom to try and solve a painful knee caused by osteoarthritis, Baker’s cyst and varicose vein.
Jane has a very easy, sympathetic manner and listens to your story and remembers it. Her choice of exercises are explained well and are then followed up on email for you to use and not forget.
I am now hoping that all her advice brings pain relief and normal walking once I have followed the plan for 7/ 10 days.
Thank you.

shoulder problem

Hi every one, i had a bad fall in February which caused a lot of damage to my left shoulder , Because of the lock down situation i was unable to get any physiotherapy hands on.
I got in touch with Jane Cowley who organised a video hookup to assess my injuries which turnout to be a torn rotata cuff muscle , Jane then organised some online excises which i could view at home to and try and sort my shoulder injury , considering the circumstances we are in i thought she did a excellent job and would reccomened her services to anyone who is in need of any physio work

Online consultation

Following a recent hip replacement, I took advantage of Jane’s online consultancy appointment facility.
I can not recommend this highly enough; the consultation covered exactly the same points as a face to face consultation would have done and, as I am not allowed to drive, saved having to ask someone to drive me there and back.
A really useful addition to an already first class service!
Thank you Jane

Appointment for severe back pain

Fantastic – have a list of ‘ tailor made ‘ exercises for me to do over the next few weeks . It was a relaxing experience too, would highly recommend.

Highly recommended

Jane is professional and her experience means she can provide helpful advice. She has informed me of all the alternative treatments available and given me exercises to do myself. She understands different patients have different needs and is happy to discuss options available. I would highly recommend Jane – she’s been a great help to me.

Warm welcome professional work

The work place was well sign posted, looked clean and is obviously used by other practitioners with different work benches.

Jane was friendly and warm in her welcome and during the assessment. She communicated some of the complicated anatomy and structural stuff in simple terms. She listened to my descriptions and checked she’d understood my problem. She pinpointed the causes and gave me some simple graded exercises both verbally and in picture form for me to do at home.

Definitely value for money.

Excellent Service

Jane was able to give me some instant relief but more importantly information regarding my injury and that i would not do additional harm by starting to do things even when they hurt. She demonstrated exercise programme and i feel more positive about my recovery.

Doing things right

I needed to see Jane as I had a muscle strain just below my right calf. It became clear fairly quickly that the strain was at the weakest point highlighting a problem that means that I have restricted mobility in my hip, leg and ankle. Seeing what I could do on my left side against right was a real eye opener. Jane has given me a range of exercises that should help to redress the balance and avoid further injury. I have had a series of injuries in my right calf, knee and heal on and off over a number of years. I would recommend Jane to anyone who is suffering from any sort of injury.

Exceptional service

.This is my second visit to Jane this time and her service is impeccable she makes you feel like the only patients she has. Very considerate and explains fully what we are trying to achieve. I had experience of Jane some years ago when she worked for the NHS, and she was good then. Would recommend her to anyone.

Child review

I was referred to Jane as my son has increasing pain in his ankles when he runs and it is affecting his ability to take part in sports which he loves. Jane was brilliant with her diagnosis and going through a number of exercises he could do at home to build his muscles. No pressure to re-book as no further treatment was required, but good to know her door is always open should we need it.

Improved mobility and quality of life

I was referred to Jane Cowley to help with my lack of mobility due to pain around my hip and in my right leg. On meeting Jane, she very quickly was able to assess my situation in a friendly and professional manner. Jane started me with massage and on some exercises to improve the muscles around my hip and leg which were very weak. I went to see Jane at regular intervals gradually improving my muscle strength and mobility with Jane’s help and encouragement. I can now walk longer distances, sleep better and take no pain relief. Jane’s treatment has improved all aspects of my quality of life. I appreciate very much Jane’s care, assistance and confidence boosting that has helped me enormously and has given me a new lease of life!

Sports Injury

I have been to see Jane a couple of times over different injuries and the last one was a calf muscle injury which was causing some concern. Following a thorough examination of my calf the problem was identified and a series of exercises designed to improve recovery and help prevent a re-occurrence were designed and which proved effective. In addition, further gym centered exercises were suggested to improve the overall fitness and strengthen my legs. The fitness philosophy adopted by Jane fitted very well into my thinking which was both refreshing achievable and very positive.

Very good experience. Rapid reply

Very good experience. Rapid reply to initial contact and early availability. Highly professional service which even after one day appears to have helped. Realistic prognosis and no unnecessary follow up. Overall highly recommended

Considerable difference to my quality of life

After years of suffering with chronic Fybromialgia and Costochondritis, Jane has been able to make a considerable difference to my quality of life. I feel that even I can manage the exercises she has recommended without too much trouble (I am not an exercise person !)
I can’t thank her enough.

Jane has given me back my mobility

Following an x-ray at Nobles I informed I have supraspinatus tendinitis and have osteoporosis to my right shoulder and arm. I was in severe pain, prescribed Tramadol and given a cortisone injection. I decided not to wait for the self referral NHS physiotherapy appointment and booked an appointment with Jane Cowley. Prior to the appointment I was unable to drive, complete household duties or chop & prepare food and was completely restricted.

Jane manipulated the shoulder and arm. I had to complete a series of exercises to get the shoulder and arm moving. I had to continue with the exercises at home.

Immediately following my appointment with Jane, my family and friends couldn’t believe the transformation in me. Jane has given me back my mobility and I could immediately drive. I am now off all medication, pain free thanks to Jane

If you have any injury or minor pain don’t delay please book an appointment with Jane Cowley

Already helped with discomfort and pain management

I’ve had issues with my right hip for quite a while and in two visits Jane has already helped with discomfort and pain management as well as giving me numerous ways to improve my mobility. She offers advice and exercises that are obviously working for me and she has massages and manipulated my hip to make me feel human again. Thank you 🙏

Highly recommended by a hospital nurse

I went for treatment by Jane, because she was highly recommended by a hospital nurse. She was not wrong. Jane is very qualified, experienced and professional in her approach, and she has a warm and friendly personality. She has an ability to confidently diagnose your problem, and leaves you with a clear understanding of what may be needed to improve it.
Jane will genuinely give you her advise and help if she can.
Money well spent, and I would have no hesitation in recommending her to anyone.

I can’t believe the strength I have!

I have been diagnosed with moderate osteoarthritis, high riding patella’s and Hoffa fat pad impingement in both knees at the age of 35, oh and a bit of floating cartilage in my left knee from a dislocation. A doctor told me to stop the gym and start swimming. Sorry but I love the gym so I went to see Jane….. after 3 months of physio exercises and good cardio work outs I have no pain in my knees and I can’t believe the strength I have. Jane has been amazing!!! She has been there at a moments notice with knowledge and help. Both myself and my mum can highly recommend this lovely lady!!
