Based in Newbury but training in High Wycombe I have been swimming for nearly 10 years. I am a County and Regional champion and record holder and have just been selected to swim for England. My ambition is to be selected to swim for GB at this years World Junior Championships and beyond that to become an Olympian. Training for 20 hours a week in the pool and 5 hours in the gym my body is under a lot of stress and my muscles often tired and sore. To maintain the level of intensity in training and be prepared for competition I find the massage and targeted treatment provided by Tom to be very effective and relaxing. His friendly and professional approach make a trip to the physio something to look forward to.
I visited Tom Rosier at his Physiotherapy Clinic after suffering for months with pain in my right knee and lower right lumbar region after slipping on a wet floor and falling heavily on my right side. On my first consultation, he made me feel very relaxed and comfortable and could tell straight away what my problems were. I attended appointments at his clinic seven more times and even after the second one I could feel a great improvement. Each visit I was given a few exercises to do in the clinic and at home and after completing the course I am very happy to say that I am now walking without pain. I thoroughly recommend Tom’s very professional service.
Our Consumer health division within Bayer has a strong focus on our employees’ health. We have a health initiative focused on this and as part of this we have a visit from Tom Rosier every week to provide Massage. We have great uptake on this and each employee pays for the service themselves at a reduced rate agreed by Tom. Tom offers either a 15 or 30 minute session which is great as doesn’t impact our working day. Tom has helped us out with a variety of issues ranging from sports injury, upper body issues from sitting at our desks to just a relaxing massage break. Feedback is great and Tom is working miracles!
Low back pain can be extremely debilitating - so much so that the pain can inhibit the function of the deep abdominal muscles and therefore lumbo-pelvic control. This means stability of your lower back is weakened and you start to rely on the bigger muscles which compensate for this loss of stability. This leads to tightness and pain in other muscles and a further decrease in functional stability - guess what - pilates is the best way to regain this functional stability!
Pilates is the perfect adjunct to physiotherapy - it is one of the best ways to improve your core stability, improve your performance and prevent injury. Your core muscles and spine are the centre of your body - instability in this area will lead to pain eventually
A few months ago I suffered from severe unprovoked pain in my shoulder. I met Tom and he conducted a very thorough and professional examination. He explained to me in details the anatomy of the shoulder joint. After that he created a personalised interactive program of exercises just for me. He continously followed up on my progress. On the following appointments he was changing and adapting my program accordingly. At the same time he was using different massage techniques and the pain gradually was fading out and the movements of my shoulder were improving significantly. Now the pain has disappeared completely. Tom is extremely professional, kind and caring. He has a wonderful sense of humour and always helped me to overcome my concerns. I consider myself extremely lucky to have met him and to have been treated by him. Should I ever need a physiotherapist again, Tom would be the first one to contact immediately. I am very grateful for all he has done for me
I got a very bad and uncomfortable ache all around the back of my neck and going along the top of my back..…which prevented me from sleeping well and was very painful when trying to move my neck or shoulders actually. Tom has been formidable firstly to listen to all my comments and understand exactly where the pain was located and how I might have done it to start with. He then relieved the pain in just a few intense sessions, with great professionalism, and also advice, trying to prevent or soothes if needed the pain if it happened again. I felt much better after just a few sessions and even after just the first day we met where the pain was gone already by the evening…I would strongly recommend Tom for his great expert advices but also the way he approaches the patient.
Thank you so much for the treatment and advice you gave me to get me back jogging as soon as possible. At 50, I thought my short-lived running career might have been finished already due to over enthusiastic running on a shin injury, but a combination of your massage and advice on exercises to treat the problem at home meant I was back running in 3 weeks. The exercises you've given me to strengthen the muscles to prevent re-injury and general advice on injury prevention have been invaluable. Thank you so much
In recent weeks Tom has helped me to get back to running after some fairly major issues with my lower back and hamstring. He persevered where others might have given up and has seen me back to full fitness. As a local Physiotherapist, his services are convenient and thorough, with a choice of venues and appointment times and I would certainly recommend him.
I just wanted to express my thanks and gratitude for helping with the problems I had with my elbow and arm. I never knew that tennis elbow could be so painful but your programme has been really beneficial for me. Thank you for the expert diagnosis, treatment and clear instructions on exercises which enabled me to also manage the problem myself. Emailing the exercises through to me was extremely useful. The difference at work is amazing, after just three sessions.
