I found Nick to be committed, knowledgeable and reliable in this type of environment, and I felt very confident having his support at one of the biggest squash tournaments of the year. He is keen to learn and explore new ideas with regards to physiotherapy which is always a good sign. It was testimony to him and his treatments that I managed to make the final that week in Liverpool. Staying injury free at the end of a long squash season was what I wanted and Nick helped me to do that, and to play well.
Nick worked alongside me personally at the 2008 British Open, a tournament in which I finished as a runner up. Nick helped me to prepare for each match with a pre-sport massage aimed at increasing blood flow in my legs as well as loosening up any tight areas I may have had from the previous match. He was then on hand the moment I stepped off court for a more relaxing recovery type massage designed to help flush out the lactic acid and reduce the DOMS ahead of the following the day’s match.
I was extremely lucky to be allocated Nick as physiotherapist as a result of two car accidents. The impact of this and a stressful job was causing me significant neck and back pain. From the outset I found Nick to be thoroughly professional whilst showing care and consideration to my needs. He always listens carefully to my issues and works in the area needed with exceptional skill. After eight sessions my neck and back pain were eradicated; I have only had two episodes of pain since. Nick always responds quickly to appointment requests giving as many options as possible, which is great with busy schedules. His flexibility certainly supported my diary. In addition I have never had to wait more than 48hours to see him, which is amazing. Nicks friendly approach and skillful work has certainly made me recommend his services to colleagues and friends alike.
Fantastic physio! He is able to not only concentrate on massage but also acupuncture and physiotherapy for any injuries I may have. I have used all three services which have been fantastic to keep my body in good shape to race for a whole season. Very competitive prices and great value for money. Thankyou!
After suffering for many years with pins and needles down my arm I found Nick on the Kirklees Active Leisure website after Googling “physios in West Yorkshire”. His approach was friendly and knowledgeable. After a course of physiotherapy and some personally tailored exercises the problem has now been alleviated. His hours of work (late evenings) meant I could book in without having to take time out of work, which was a real bonus! I would be happy to recommend him to anyone looking for this type of treatment.
I worked with Nick Dodson for over 2 years at Hull City AFC. In that time I unfortunately had a career threatening injury, which meant I worked closely with Nick on a daily basis for almost a whole year. Not only did I find his professionalism and knowledge second to none, but the way he handled me as a 17/18 year old frustrated lad was first-class. He was a big influence on getting me back fit and back playing.
Nick has always been very professional and welcoming. I have a chronic arthritic condition having had two hip replacements. Nick is very patient, thorough and reassuring. He leaves no stone unturned having tried various treatments for me. Although my progress is slow I feel happy with my treatment so far. I would not hesitate in recommending Nick for physiotherapy.
I’ve seen Nick on and off for the past couple of years with a shoulder/neck muscular problem. I’ve seen other Physios in the past but I would highly recommend Nick for his kind and patient manner and good advice which has improved my condition significantly, more than any other Physio has done. As part of my treatment, I was given stretching exercises to do at home and I also tried acupuncture, which I believe has made a big difference to me, as I’m now more supple, have more movement in my neck and no nerve problems in my arm and hand. Being desk-bound in my job, I still see Nick occasionally for a sports massage or physio to loosen the tension in my shoulder. He’s really great at what he does!
I had the pleasure to work with nick for a couple of years while he worked at Hull City. He helped me overcome and avoid several injuries while we worked together, including several ankle problems and quite a serious knee injury. With me only being 16/17 years old, injuries could have affected me badly in the long term, but nick made sure that I was always relaxed and understood what the problem was and how we could overcome it together. He is assertive and confident in his ability which then fills you with confidence and helps you get through your problem. I would recommend anyone to work with him due to his professionalism and work ethic to help others.
My name is Barbara and I am a badminton coach. I recently had treatment from Nick after a nasty fall when I tore the ligaments in my ankle. It was the first time I had visited this particular physiotherapist although I have experience of several others. I found his assessment, treatment and approach really good. I was pleased that he offered me advice on exercises that I could do at home to help me recover quicker. I also arranged for him to look at a young badminton player, current U15 national champion, who had an Achilles tendon problem. Again Nick was good with his diagnosis and advice and soon got her back to fitness.
I have had treatment from Nick a number of times for various injuries. Each time, Nick’s assessments and treatments have been spot on. I always feel in professional hands whilst Nick administers his pain, or should I say treatment! Whilst at the same time giving good advice and preventative exercises. Nick’s style is relaxed and friendly and he never pushes you to come again and again when not necessary.
As a keen runner I enjoy competing and this means putting in a lot of miles. Inevitably this leads to aches, pains and niggles but with consistently good advice, support, management and treatment from Nick at Physio Health Clinic these are prevented from developing into anything more serious.
I’ve seen Nick a number of times for various injuries. He has always managed to sort out my injuries. As I play football, the bonus for me with Nick’s background working in professional football, is that he understands the injuries really well and therefore helps me to get back to playing. I have also used the Physio Health Clinic for sports massage and have found it excellent. I would recommend the Physio Health Clinic to any sports person for both treatment and rehab.
