Gareth at scholars therapies really helped me to return back to sport, his knowledge is second to none and really helped me not only physically but mentally as well, he is extremely professional and stuck by me and was extremely supportive, I don’t think I could’ve done it without him. He definitely helped with the speeding up of my recovery and the exercises he gave/ did with me helped... strengthen me back up and improve, I couldn’t recommend him more he really is the best around, Thankyou again gareth🙌🏽read more
I went to see Gareth after I tore my PCL playing football. I managed to get a scan only a couple of days after which allowed Gareth to set me a clear 16 week plan to get back to playing. With 1-to-1 sessions in the treatment room, gym and pitch based sessions, I was back to full fitness on week 16. I could not recommend Gareth highly enough and would encourage anybody to go and see him.
Gareth was recommend by a few people in my running club to help with a shin splint problem I was suffering from. After months of problems he has managed to get me feeling better in weeks. His help was objective and helpful in the respect that he didn't simply tell me to stop running.I now have a plan for recovery and feel far more confident based on the excellent help and guidance offered.
I contacted Scholars Therapies on recommendation. My 15 year old son Kieran, has had a recent shoulder dislocation, Gareth got us in quickly at a time that fit around us. He explained everything brilliantly and really built up a rapport with Kieran, a huge plus point! He was honest but very positive and gave him a plan and something to work towards. He wasn’t pushy on when we should or... shouldn’t come back, it was completely tailored by what Kieran felt was right for him. Can’t recommend Gareth enough!read more
MASSIVELY RECOMMENDED!! ⚽️Gareth at Scholar therapies was so reassuring, supportive, welcoming and helpful in his service. I went to Gareth after having a back injury for 6 months with no idea what was exactly wrong. After 1 session with Gareth he was able to tell me what was wrong and set out a plan to help me get back playing football. He reassured me it wasn’t going to be easy but he could... help me get back to where I wanted to be. In 4 months working with Gareth he was able to get me from unable to complete the daily task due to being in a high amount of pain to now being back playing the sport I love with my team. I never imagined to be able to be back playing this soon with no pain and feeling so confident that I’m okay. Without Gareth my wish wouldn’t have became a reality so I owe to him. I would massively recommend Gareth and his team. They are so professionally and give you the confidence that they know what they are on about. I was even able to contact Gareth out of the clinic hours and he would provide me with appropriate advice to use until my next appointment. If you a suffering with an injury and need some help I would tell anyone to go see the guys at Scholar Therapies you won’t regret it. Thank you Gareth ⚽️😊read more
I have known Gareth since he was my physio at Morecambe and after full time I have used gareth for every injury, stiffness and queries I ever had! I have suffered from a grade 2 ankle ligament tear and a front and rear labrum tear on my shoulder, (which gaz dealt with pre and post op rehab) he has supported and treated me to a full recovery to contact sport! !!HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!
Always a first class service from the team at Scholars. Ive seen Gareth a number of times when i was struggling with an ankle injury in the summer, and this morning had a great sports massage from Jade. She applied the perfect pressure to each area and gave plenty of advice moving forward. Looking forward to returning regularly in the new year to give my legs a refresh when needed. 🙌🏻
1st class this morning from Jade.Asked what I needed, listened to what my aches and pains were and did a great sports massage on those areas. Applied right amount of pressure to each muscle and I feel fully refreshed. Looking forward to getting out tomorrow with a revitalised body 😁
After injuring my knee approximately 5 years ago and seeing several doctors, specialists and physios over the years with little improvement...I finally found Gareth!9 months of work with him and my knee improved week on week - growing strength and reduction in pain. I still continue to work on his recommended exercises and this weekend I managed my first ever 10k.I would recommend Gareth to... anyone who has experienced an injury and looking for rehab.read more
I have been going to see Gareth for a few months now with an ongoing back problem from an injury. Gareth has really helped with a hands on approach and advice on exercises to do. Whilst in lockdown I had an accident and injured my back even more 🙈 with virtual physio sessions, Gareth has managed to further assist and get me moving again. Thank you for all the help and advise, would highly... recommend.read more
Had fusion surgery in Oct 19 for a Lisfranc fracture. Gareth has been excellent in his rehab both with the fracture and subsequent issues with plantar and ankle issues. Very thorough and after treatment foot feels like new. Would highly recommend!
Great physio at scholars. I struggle with my lower back and going there for regular appointments has really helped. I see Andy Jones and he seems to have a wealth of experience with his football club background. I would recommend them to any one.
I had been struggling for over a year with plantar fasciitis when a friend recommended Gareth. I had tried various different treatments and was feeling quite fed up as I was unable to run. I booked in with Gareth and he didn't promise a magic pill; what he did was to listen and we worked together with structured exercises and hands-on treatment. After a while I was able to do run-walk for a mile.... Now I am back to running like I was before 🙂 I can't recommend Gareth highly enough. He will be honest and do his best to get you back to where you want to be.read more
Anyone who has suffered an injury that will put them out of action for a long time, get in touch with Gaz and he will help map out a plan to get you back to full fitness as he did with me, couldn’t recommend the big man enough 👍🏻
Had knee injuries for years, was recommended to see Gareth and so glad I was. Absolutely brilliant service. Great person and very knowledgeable, saw the issue within minutes of looking at me and after a few visits and giving me exercises to do at home, knee is stronger than ever with no issues since. Can't thank him enough. Once the issue is resolved, he will also tell you that he doesn't need to... see you again which shows he isn't in it to make money out of you and that he does it for the love of the job.read more
A huge thank you to Gareth at Scholars Therapies for fixing my knee and shoulder! After years of thinking the pain in my knee was just ‘one of those things’ I’d have to live with Gareth guided me through a series of strengthening exercises with strict guidance and how to do them and now I can exercise pain free.
Iv had a trapped nerve for over two years been misdiagnosed and given the wrong treatment three times each time makeing it worse. After 1session with Gareth I started to see an improvement.After six sessions I'm moving freely and pain free 90% of time still improveing and getting back to the things I enjoy.Gareth seriously fella thank you.
On first meeting gareth, he was very friendly and happy to listen to my problem. His advise and sports massage was excellent. His advise on rehab was amazing and got me back onto track quicker than expected. HIghly recommended.
After an ongoing injury on my Achilles and calf , had decided to visit Scholars therapies ! Gareth is very professional, friendly , and very thorough on his work ! And he can get to the nature of an injury or discomfort in movement . After a few visits , the exercises he recommended to strengthen the tendons and muscle , I am back in action . Thank you Gareth 🙌keep doing a fantastic job
Highly recommend Scholars Therapies! Gareth is so knowledgable and keeps up to date with latest techniques and therapies so you know you’re getting the best possible treatment. He sorted my ‘runner’s knee’ so quickly. I thought I’d have to pull out of the race I’d signed up to but he’s ensured I will be able to race! 👍
Massive Thanks to Gareth for helping me with a knee issue, he diagnosed me straight away and set me on the road to recovery. A few sessions with him and a rehab programme and all was back to its best.Would definitely recommend Gareth, he is very good at what he does and does not prolong the rehab and physio sessions for his benefit.
I would like to give a massive thanks to Gareth Scholars Therapies for helping me with my acl recovery! It has been a long 2 years but gaz has took it on himself to get me back playing. One of the nicest guys I have had the pleasure of working with. After a structured rehab program i am now back playing and loving the game again ⚽️ I owe my career to this man. 👍
Recently received physio by Gareth for a very painful tramped nerve. When I first met Gareth I could hardly walk never mind move. He gave a full assessment and worked his magic from day one. I’ve had a further three appointments and so thankful to Gareth I am now back to my self and able to move as normal as can be again. He’s a physiotherapist that I will never forget for his very... welcoming and chatty self. Makes you feel so comfortable and at ease, very good at what he does. Definitely one to recommend. Thanks again Gareth your a super star �read more
I started to go to Gareth at Scholars in July 2017. First off, he did a full assessment on muscle strengths and weaknesses, the outcome of which fit my own picture in terms of where I get tightness or troublesome areas. Gareth then did a tailor made S&C plan to focus on strengthening those weaknesses as well as honing in on the major triathlon muscle groups. We did a phased S&C programme over... winter, starting a few weeks with body weight only, helping my muscles adapt gradually. Gareth will adapt this plan in accordance with approaching and during race season too. As a triathlete, it’s a fine balance of getting enough S&C work without inflicting DOMS which will ruin my next key run, bike or swim session. We also don’t focus at all on the cardiovascular side of things as I get more than enough of that in my triathlon training. This programme has been the perfect balance for me. I can see my muscle tone changing and feel stronger in my core. This has transferred through to my running and swimming which have both improved as they have also been winter focusses. I also see Gareth for weekly general body maintenance, which helps to keep injuries at bay. Talking of which, Gareth knows his stuff when it comes to injuries and I trust him to locate the problem and get it sorted! On top of all this, Gareth is simply a likeable friendly welsh chap who you can have a good chat with at the same time about all sorts! Thanks Gareth!read more
I was suffering with horrendous shoulder and neck pain to the point where I couldn't sleep. Gareth fit me in last minute and afterwards I couldn't believe how much the pain had eased and I slept so much better. Highly recommended and I'm looking forward to getting fully recovered!! 😀
I play a lot of competitive golf and had been really struggling recently with back and neck pain, Gareth soon put me right. Very knowledgable, explained everything to me about what was going on and how his treatment would not only ease the pain but improve rotation for my golf swing. Thanks Gareth, top man, would highly recommend
