“I just want to thank the physiotherapy department specially Mr. Rathish for the effective therapy he gave me. I had a severe neck pain. For 2mos I was in misery due to constant pain. Even simple household chores were hard for me to do. My left arm was so sore with my thumb that was so numb. I was on and off from work because I cant even move my neck sideways nor lift up my chin. I was moving like a robot, literally.

After 3 sessions with him, there was a huge improvement! The pain was lessened and I’ve started doing my usual activities. He taught me the different exercises that I need to do at home. I do them diligently because I want to heal continuously. I want to thank him for being so patient during the times I was in so much pain. One thing I will never forget is his encouragement. He was very positive that I will get better and I believed him. Now I’m so happy and satisfied. I’m functioning well but still I’m doing the exercises to keep my muscles healthy.”

“Mr ratheesh manickam is one of the best physiotherapist that I met. I have severe neck pain and back pain due to disc bulge within 2 months of his service I recovered completely.”


“I have a severe back pain from 2020 due to fallen on the steps. I can’t move at least 20 steps. Suddenly back pain will start. I met Dr.Chris Butcher and he recommended for Physiotherapy. Through his experience X- Ray not required for diagnosis and an amazing ortho specialist ever I met in my life. Physiotherapist Mr. Rathish Manickam did some miracle with his Session 1 day 8. I am relieved from my back pain and able to do the cardio more than 1 Hour. Really am appreciated their effort to returned to me in normal life. I am very much thankful about the man Mr. Firoz Farook, who recommended these specialist to me. Thank You Harley Street.”

I was suffering from a chronic case of Tendinosis in my ankle for months and I could recover under the treatment of the very knowledgeable physiotherapist, Mr Rathish Manickam, who is a specialist in Manual Therapy. Though I have had Physiotherapy treatments previously, this is the first time I hear about Manual Therapy and was pleasantly surprised when my leg started responding to the treatment within the first few sessions. Afterwards he trained me to strengthen my legs and I could return to my sport.
