A good first experience of a Zoom physio appointment when Michael very kindly fitted me in re my wrist and achilles tendon. I knew from previous treatment that Michael is excellent at explaining cause, effect, remedies, exercises etc and that really came to the fore on Zoom. He’s just great! So, once again, I’m more than happy to recommend!

Les Hunter (Jnr) Grangemouth said on 24/03/2021:
Had the pleasure of visiting Mhphysiotherapy a couple of weeks ago to have a recurring hip injury looked at. Not only did I feel better physically and mentally following treatment from Michael, but I felt safe and secure due to Michael’s adherence to Covid-19 guidelines. 10/10 as always👍

Les Hunter (Snr), Grangemouth said on 03/12/2020:
Grateful thanks to Helen and Michael for fitting me in at short notice (a cancellation) to do some manipulation on the old creaky neck. Super safe service as ever. Thanks guys 🙏

Antony McGuire, Falkirk said on 05/11/2020:
Michael offers a first -class service and is always very approachable. Michael diagnosed my sciatica and IT band issue at my first consultation. I would highly recommend MHphysiotherapy to anyone.

Jason Morrison, Brightons said on 19/02/2020:
I was referred to Michael by Les Hunter when I told him I’d been getting pain in my right hip and knee due to running.  I attended 3 session of physio in December and the results were exactly what I was looking for – the pain went away and hasn’t come back.  Michael first checked to make sure there wasn’t an actual injury and after establishing that it was general wear and tear (old age!) provided massage therapy which made a real difference.  He also gave advice on specific stretches to make sure the pain did not return.  On a personal level he’s also very easy to talk to.

Thank you so much 😊 for helping me with recent onset of foot pain and also with my knee. It makes a difference, especially when I’ve been on my feet all day and sometimes struggle. Said it before, I wouldn’t go anywhere else. Definitely recommended. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️👍

LH, Grangemouth said on 05/11/2019:
As always, Michael provided a top-class professional service when I recently attended with a calf and hip injury.  Put me completely at ease and carried out one hours worth of examination and treatment.   Explained thoroughly the cause of my injury and tailored a self-treatment and exercise plan for my rehab.  Michael never rushes you and explains everything in a language you understand.

Fiona Hutton, said on 28/11/2018:
My husband has been working with Michael following a stem cell transplant for MS.  He had hardly any mobility when he was first was seen by Michael in Sept last year & by Christmas/New Year was walking further than he’s done in years.   Without him he definitely wouldn’t be still on his feet & he’s a great guy too.

CG, Grangemouth said on 28/09/2018:
Having just completed a spell of treatment, I can confirm that Michael certainly deserves all the brilliant feedback on here!  He took time to listen and assess my ‘old’ back and knees etc., explaining everything in layman’s terms so I could understand the treatment, massage and exercises.  My aches have eased and rather than just giving in to arthritis, I now feel more hopeful about keeping it at bay with a programme of exercises and I know where to go if the muscles lock up again!   Michael is clearly a dedicated professional and a genuinely nice guy.  Giving his time and expertise at such an affordable price says a lot about the man.   p.s.  It’s also worth mentioning that you can practically drive right up to the door at MH Physio and there is an access ramp.

LH,  Grangemouth  said on 04/09/2018:
Went to see Michael with various niggles, due to being an old jogger who has still not learned to listen to his body.  Michael as always was his usual methodical self who listened intently to what I was saying and then got to work on my broken body.  You never feel rushed with Michael and he takes the time to explain everything regarding the injury, the treatment and rehabilitation.   I hate being injured, but always feel better and more positive after seeing Michael.  His chat is good too.

Robert Cumming, Falkirk said on 12/08/2018:
I had my Initial Consultation and some treatment from Michael a couple of days ago.  I have had back problems and recurring pain for almost one year now. I have tried almost everything; pain killers, Chiropractor, NHS Physio and another private physio but have been getting nowhere.

However, after my visit to Michael, I’m confident and positive that there is light at the end of tunnel!

I found Michael on Facebook and was blown away at all the 5 star reviews so immediately booked in. I felt really comfortable from the word go and Michael took his time to explain everything.

The treatment at the end was brilliant, my lower back feels great and that’s after just one appointment. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Michael, his prices are very reasonable (cheaper than the other physio we tried and much longer appointment times). I’m looking forward to finally feeling like I’m making progress and getting my back in to the best condition it can be.

P Whitelaw, Falkirk said on 10/08/2018:
I had lower back pain! When I arrived at Michael I had to walk round the car to try and straighten up. I was like a new person when I came out.  No more painkillers.  I honestly could not recommend Michael highly enough.  I now see Michael once a month for a maintenance massage.  I’m self-employed and can’t afford time off my work.  This keeps me going 😀.

Kaye Scott, Polmont said on 04/05/2018:
My husband Findlay broke his hip in January and with the long NHS waiting lists I decided to contact Michael who has been absolutely fantastic getting him back on his feet. Michael is a very nice guy and always willing to help. I would definitely recommend him.

Mrs C. Hunter, Grangemouth said on 27/04/18:
I rang Michael for an urgent appointment due to a knee injury picked up whilst training for a half marathon.  Luckily I was offered a cancellation and was seen very quickly.  The treatment, advice and overall service was very professional and offered me great reassurance in continuing with my training.  I would have no hesitation in recommending Michael and in fact have already done so!

Emma McGurk said on 26/01/2018:
Cannot recommend Michael enough.  I’ve had so much issue and bother with a shoulder impingement, which I’ve received steroid injections for in the past, only for the problem to persist or come back.  Today Michael, assessed, worked on and has GREATLY alleviated the pain, confident that with some more work and exercise we can get rid of it.  Happy me! Being a Fitness Professional I rely on physical work in my job so this is good news to my ears. Thanks Michael

LH said on 07/11/2017:
Without any warning I suffered excruciating back pain that caused me huge discomfort and limited my mobility.  Without hesitation I contacted Michael who was on a rare day off and attending to a family matter.  Despite this Michael offered me advice via the telephone and arranged to open his clinic early the following day to treat me.  On attending my appointment Michael was his usual calm, friendly and informative self.   He immediately put me at ease and carried out a thorough examination of me.  He identified where my problem was emanating from and treated the affected area while informing me what he was doing and why.  He thereafter devised an exercise plan for me to aide my recovery which he was very patient in explaining and made sure I had grasped.  My family and I have used Michael on a number of occasions and we all find him to be very professional and knowledgeable along with being  very friendly and down to earth.

Angela Barr said on 23/08/2017:
If you go anywhere else in the Falkirk area for your physio you’re off your head. I can’t recommend Michael highly enough. Key points for me were he’s honest and he won’t treat you unless you need it, the sessions are incredible value for money when you compare what others charge and he explains your issues so that you understand them. I know a few people that use Michael and their feedback is the same. Top dude.

P Cram said on 31/07/2017:
It’s Michael’s passion for what he does that shines through.
Professionally knowledgeable in his field but can equally make you feel at ease which is just as important.
Excellent value for money and would recommend.

M Kelly said on 28/07/2017:
Started my treatment with Michael today, very knowledgeable and professional and takes time to explain the procedure he’s undertaking. Recommended highly.

Les Hunter, Grangemouth sad on 18/07/2017:
Contacted Michael with regards a problem I had with my knee.  Prior to my appointment Michael took the time to assess my problem over the phone and provided advice on how to manage my injury which I appreciated.  During my appointment Michael was thorough and professional and quickly diagnosed my problem.  He was very pleasant and immediately put me at ease.  He then took the time to thoroughly explain my injury in a language I understood before treatment and  developing a care plan.   Top class service all round at a very reasonable price.

R Mullin said on 01/07/2017:
MH Physiotherapy is just the best. Michael is a fantastic physio and he really wants the best for you.
His costs are very affordable. The location is great, easy to find.
Loads of parking spaces and there is an on site cafe too.

D McEwan said on 01/06/2017:
Can’t recommend MH Physiotherapy highly enough. Both my ankle and shoulder injuries were treated and I’m really impressed with the level of pain free function that I have in them now. Reliable, affordable and effective, well done MH Physiotherapy.

S Wylie said on 18/05/2017:
I have used several physios before having Michael recommended by a friend. Never been more pleased by the service and treatment by a physio. Very affordable too.

Customer said on 03/05/2017:
I would strongly recommend Physiotherapy with Michael. Excellent diagnosis of my injury helping me understand what exactly was wrong. Provides great advice for after care. Very affordable for both initial assessment & return appointments.

N Montgomery said on 03/04/2017:
First class service from Mhphysiotherapy today, in for sports massage and feel fantastic for it. I will definitely be back to see him soon. Highly recommended!

Caroline Hunter, Grangemouth said on 20/03/2017:
Michael provided a very professional friendly service. Most importantly he provided excellent treatment for a back injury & devised an an exercise plan to compliment this and aid my ongoing recovery.

S Carey said on 13/02/2017:
Cannot recommend MHPhysiotherapy enough. Every time I get a niggle/injury Michael gets to the root cause and sorts me out quickly. Aftercare advice is always given and it allows me to get back to exercising quickly and with the knowledge of how to help prevent the issue re-occurring.

Anne-Marie Sneddon said on 19/01/2017:
First time at private physio and all I can say is thank you so much Michael. Didn’t realise what a physio appiontment is meant to be like until today. I know I have work to do and poor Michaels fingers will be broken before I get all my work on my body. Lol. I will definitely be a regular to sort out my shoulder. Thanks.

Scott Burns said on 19/01/2017:
I’ve seen Michael a few times over the last 2/3 years and he never disappoints. I was training for a 100 mile cycle recently but need an op on my knee so was getting a fair bit of pain. I seen Michael the week before the cycle and my Knee had never felt better during the 100 miles. Fully recommend Michael to everyone.

Claire Anderson said on 19/01/2017:
I was injured at the start of April whist out running.i fractured my wrist and have an impinged shoulder I injured my hip and my back has been in pain since.after attending phisio through nhs and getting nowhere fast I booked an appointment with Michael I have had 3 appointments so far and can honestly say that the pain has greatly reduced and my range of movement has increased already.would highly recommend to anyone suffering any injury or pain.

Ashley Haughian said on 19/01/2017:
I’ve had three sessions so far and the difference is unreal. I honestly didn’t expect results like this, three weeks ago I was crippled in agony with a slipped disc pressing on my sciatic nerve. Today I walked into my third session with a smile on my face!! I would highly recommend Michael to anyone suffering in pain. He really knows what he’s doing, explains everything he’s doing and why, makes a future plan based on your specific needs and is just a really nice easy going guy who makes you feel at ease as soon as you walk in the door! And lets face it you really can’t beat those prices!

L Darrell said on 12/01/2017:
I have been attending physio at MH Physiotherapy due to having problems with my knee. Michael at MH Physiotherapy is flexible with appointments and has helped a lot with my injury and has a lot of knowledge and understanding, very helpful and gives you a treatment plan as well.
Would have no hesitation in recommending MH Physiotherapy to anyone. Thank you so much for all your help so far Michael.

Lynn Hunter said on 25/11/2016:
After having pins and a plate fitted in my ankle following a fall in July, I’d been getting physio with the NHS which was good. It helped to an extent but I felt I wasn’t making as much progress as I’d like. So I arranged to go and see Michael as a private patient. I have to say that I was really delighted with the time he took to explain to me what’s caused the long-standing weakness I have in both ankles and what I can do to strengthen them both. I felt that he treated me really well and the work he did on my ankle has already loosened it up and made it easier to walk properly. He has a nice easy manner and I wasn’t in the least uncomfortable with him. And at £30 for a session I will definitely go back to him a few more times as I feel it’s well worth it. I’d heard from other people that Michael was very good which is why I took him on as one of my ‘Trustys’. But now I know first hand how good he is and I’d recommend him to anyone.

R Marshall said on 16/11/2017:
Thanks for today, Calvin is really happy with the treatment he is receiving. I also appreciate you allowing him to wait with you until his Grandad came. He wasn’t dressed for the weather. Thanks again for everything, it’s never this easy to get him to go to an app so you’re doing an amazing job.

Y Fusco said on 23/08/2016:
Excellent professional service. Will definitely recommend this place to my colleagues in the NHS Hospital I work in.

E Russell said on 15/09/2015:
Very professional and supportive – explained everything thoroughly and talked us through all treatment for my son – who is now fully fit after fantastic care by Michael.

Maggie Paterson said:
Friendly & professional service! My shoulder is defo on the way to recovery after just one visit thanks x

Iain Dunn said:
Highly recommend mhphysiotherapy. Don’t put off a visit if you require physio. Felt an instant benefit from treatment after leaving an injury for weeks. You won’t get a friendlier and value for money service any where else.

Darren Hunter said:
I have had back pain for some 12 months and seen various “specialists” however after only a few months treatment @Mhphysiotherapy i am no longer in pain and well on the road to recovery. Brilliant service from Michael. Very knowledgeable but explains in a way not too confuse you like most others do! Good clean facility and very reasonably priced! Perfect.

Lynne Park said:
I’m being treated by Michael after surgery on my knee and also with shoulder and neck pain. Today I had a trapped nerve in my neck and I called Michael and he squeezed me in OMG he done his magic again. I would recommend Michael to anyone, he’s very approachable and professional with good prices.

Clare Charleston said:
Michael was fantastic treating my son, he was very reasurring. Able to make son feel comfortable over the 6-7 week sessions. Found prices reasonable – able to book block sessions due to special offers and had better pricing than other physiotherapists I had looked at beforehand. See a definite impact the sessions have had. Would definitely recommend.

Myra Binnie said on 05/11/2015:
Assessment, diagnosis, remedial therapy and rehabilitation of piriformis syndrome. Worked with Michael since initial assessment on 16/09/15. Seemed friendly, open and honest. Service was reliable, a quick response on query, appointments kept and always punctual. See a difference the sessions have made completely! Took another few weeks to recover fully, however this was through continuing to follow Michael’s advice. In terms of the competition, the pricing is very reasonable. I have already passed on details a few times to class clients suffering injuries and would vouch for their service on trusty professionals.

Duncan Fleming said:
Michael helped with a trapped nerve in my left lower shoulder/back area over a period of 6 sessions. Was due to go on holiday and was in absolute agony I couldn’t sleep. A close friend recommended I go to Michael, the service was excellent! The prices are very reasonable and Michael is very polite and knows what he is doing – 1st class service. Would 100% recommend!
