This is an excellent Physiotherapy clinic and I thoroughly recommend it. After 7 years I am still going there and what’s more I am still seeing the same Physiotherapist, so that is real continuity. I moved to Cambridge and was worried about finding a new Physio but there was no need to worry, I got to know two, both as good and very professional. I have complete confidence in him. He is incredibly knowledgeable and has worked on my disabilities (all stroke related) patiently trying many different ways to encourage me. Even when my enthusiasm wanes he is there with a new idea. The clinic comes to you which for someone handicapped is a bonus. It is easy to contact for extra advice and there is a close relationship with the stroke unit at Addenbrookes Hospital. Will and his team are wonderful.
Having utilized the highly professional services of Cambridge Neuro Physiotherapy for over two years, I would like to take this opportunity to highly recommend their specialist physiotherapy services provided by the company under the leadership of Will Winterbotham. The team advance outstanding professional values, knowledge and sound advice and teaching, in their respective roles, offering an exemplary client service, highly committed to rendering quality patient care, at all times, without exception.
My husband began seeing Tess at Cambridge Neuro-Physiotherapy after a very serious R.T.A which left him with a brain injury and weakness to his left hand side. Throughout the time he has seen Tess she has encouraged and supported him, although at times he has wanted to give up and he has also proven very difficult and despondent, other difficulties such as lockdown have put hurdles in the way, Tess has always turned up with a smile, bags of positivity and encouragement to support Richard to carry on. Through all of Richard’s rehabilitation the most important thing for him was to train his dogs and walk them daily. With Tess by his side all the way he has achieved his goal and looks forward to holidays on the beach with his beloved Labradors.
My daughter has cerebral palsy. She has severe physical disabilities making independent movement very difficult. She looks forward enormously to her weekly physiotherapy sessions. The physiotherapist, Clare, carefully manipulates my daughter’s whole body, easing her tightness and giving her a great feeling of wellbeing. Clare has built a rapport with Molly making the sessions fun as well as therapeutic.
Since Pam had her stroke in May 2014 (which disabled her so badly) she was not always treated with kindness, gentleness, respect and consideration. I was so delighted when I met Georgie and saw how sensitive she was She was so kind and gentle with Pam. I came along for the first session and I noticed that Georgie was watching Pam’s reactions intently – Pam couldn’t speak and I knew from that moment that she was in excellent hands. My only regret is that I didn’t arrange for Cambridge Neuro Physio to treat Pam before – I know she benefited from the sessions. From the first contact (I spoke to you on the phone) I knew I had made the right choice. It was so clear that your team had the appropriate experience to help her – and you put Georgie in touch with me very quickly. From my point of view too, a completely positive experience. – FF
After leaving hospital with a spinal cord injury I was really keen to continue with the physiotherapy that I was doing in hospital, and this was when I contacted Will. We discussed what I wanted to achieve and how to go about reaching those goals, the physio during that time has made a big difference and I cannot thank Will enough. I’m now continuing my physio with Jenny and as with Will it is going really well, coming up with new ideas to keep it fresh and interesting. Since meeting Will and Jenny it has made a real difference and can’t recommend them enough. – MA
In 2005 I was involved in a particularly nasty road traffic accident. I was in a coma for three weeks and broke my pelvis. Recovering in Addenbrooke’s I assumed that I would not walk again. When I entered the Lewin ward for rehabilitation I met Will for the first time and was immediately impressed with his down-to-earth approach. Following a lengthy period of recuperation at home I met Will again in 2010 and following a detailed examination he wrote a report and recommended an orthosis for my dropped foot and came up with an exercise regime with the comment that if it were followed I would be walking 2 miles in a year. Credit must also be given to a woman we had living here at the time who was effectively my case manager and who made sure that I did the exercises, but suffice to say that one year on and I was walking up to two miles and in my job (teaching at the university). I need to be on my feet for long periods and I can now accomplish this without needing to sit and rest. Also it must be said that the way that Will comes across to people (everyone, not just patients) is remarkable, a rare gift. – Stephen T
My husband suffered a severe stroke in December 2009. On his discharge from the Lewin Rehabilitation Unit at Addenbrooke’s, he found physiotherapy provided by the NHS was not sufficient enough for his ongoing recovery. Fortunately for him we contacted Cambridge Neuro-Physiotherapy and since that time he has never looked back. The extra surprise for him was Georgie and Katie had worked with him in his rehabilitation before his discharge from hospital, so just having familiar faces was a bonus. – Joy P
Katie has been assisting Malcolm for nearly a year. From the beginning Katie wanted to know exactly what we were aiming for to help Malcolm’s recovery. Malcolm wanted help to walk again, and with Katie’s physio and helping Malcolm to make contact with Dr K… and R…, Malcolm walks very well with the aid of a splint. Katie still sees Malcolm for physio, keeps in touch with Addenbrooke’s and always looks after his well-being. – Barbara L
We can’t recommend Will Winterbotham highly enough. Mum had a stroke two years ago and was told by the doctors that she could not expect to walk again. Through professional care focussing on one step at a time, and clear targets, mum is now able to cross the room with a quad stick. Things are still advancing. Will has a knack of quickly gaining the confidence of his patient – working on both the physical and psychological aspects of the recovery. He also has endless patience. We consider ourselves very fortunate to be able to benefit from his professionalism. – WG
We approached Cambridge Neurophysiotherapy soon after I returned home from Addenbrookes Hospital having suffered a stroke. This was to supplement the support I got from the local team. The support that we have had from Georgie Chivers has been of immeasurable help physically, medically, emotionally and personally. My recovery and rehabilitation has come on significantly. Georgie has provided carefully thought-through exercises which have helped to strengthen my muscles, improve my independence and day to day living and also reduce the residual pain that I experience following my stroke. Initially the visits were weekly. By agreement they then reduced gradually as needed and are now roughly monthly. Each visit has a clear focus and is always helpful. If you are in need of neurophysiotherapy we recommend Cambridge Neurophysiotherapy and Georgie Chivers to you without reservation and complete confidence. – B and H W
