Richard has had a major influence on my career. From the time we worked together at Watford, to now, he has always looked after my needs and concerns no matter how big or small. Aside from being great at rehabilitation and hands on physiotherapy, I found the injury prevention strategies he prescribed for me to be most helpful! From the activation sessions every morning to the saliva swabs, the attention to detail was second to none!! Not only is Richard a top physio but more importantly, he is a real good guy and can’t do enough to help people! I certainly look forward to hopefully working with him again in the near future.
I’ve worked with Richard over a 12 year period now and he’s certainly played a big part in me still being physically able to play today at a high level. He has a superb manner and is extremely knowledgeable. It doesn’t surprise me that he’s worked at the very highest level – I can’t speak highly enough about him.
Over my 16 year professional playing career I’ve been fortunate enough to work with Richard twice, Watford FC and Cardiff City FC. Having worked with plenty of physiotherapists during this time, Richard is in my opinion one of the very best in the industry. From injury diagnosis and treatment through to high end rehabilitation. I suffered a grade 3 hamstring tear in 2012, my worst injury to date, and under Richard’s excellent care I returned to full fitness sooner than expected. I could not have been in better hands and can’t recommend him highly enough.
I first worked with Richard in February 2009 after spending my first 10 years of football in Scotland. I joined Watford FC where Richard was the Physio and I soon realised that there was far more to football than just walking onto the training ground and football stadium on a match day. Richard introduced routines and sessions to do before and after training that I have used for the last 5 years now and I will continue to use for the rest of my career. I will definitely advise fellow colleagues to use such programmes if they are not already. The things that stand out most from working with Richard are that he identifies the weaknesses of your body from an early stage and draws up a plan for you to improve on these but he is always re-evaluating. He also introduced activation before training and match day which is a big part of my routine now. As a player it was a technique I had never come across before and I believe it reduces injury and makes me feel very comfortable with my body both physically and mentally before I take part in activity. I thoroughly enjoyed working with Richard for 5 years as he showed me so much and improved my mindset and physicality of my body greatly and would definitely like to work with him again in the future.
I worked with Barry for a few years at West Ham and found that he had a great talent in helping my recovery very quickly. Through my experience of having a lot of aches and pains in my body I know that it can take some time to release tightness but Baz's time and effort helped me a lot. A top therapist . Thanks Barry
Baz worked with me most days and made sure my body was as prepared as possible and moving as it should. He was able to produce fantastic results with his soft tissue work to keep me fit and on the pitch for the season with West Ham!
I worked with Barry for a few years, from the age of about 17-20, during my time at Watford Football Club. During this period of working with him, he worked alongside the other physiotherapists and sport scientists at the club to help identify the main areas of weakness in my body. Since working closely with Barry to improve these aspects, it has helped me take my game on to the next level. As a result, this has helped contribute towards me achieving England Under 21 and Team GB Olympic call-ups. The work he put it in to help me is greatly appreciated.
I found Barry’s techniques different to anything else I have come across but extremely beneficial. His wide range of methods addressed and released tight areas increasing my flexibility. Since using Baz my mobility has improved dramatically and contributed to keeping me injury free.
“Barry is one of the best in the biz. Over the coarse of a 5 month shoot with around 9 to 10 hours of wire work, dodging explosions and hitting the ground a day, it gets a bit tough on the body. Barry was key in keeping me up to the task..Couldn’t have done it without him.”
Barry came to me by chance. He helped me, the actors and my stunt team with his expertise. My crew are under high stress situations and end up carrying injuries without proper rest in order to heal. That’s where Barry came in and looked after the performers and gave them the opportunity to keep working. Would be great to have Barry around all the time.
When I arrived in January 2013 I was in such pain and discomfort from a long year of training and racing triathlons. Ending with an Ironman in Late November. I was suffering with what I thought was a hip problem. I was REALLY struggling. Through our sessions together not only did Barry help relieve the discomfort , he educated me with body mechanics and exercises to help heal and prevent future problems. I came to the UK barely able to run100m , and last weekend completed half marathon with a personal best. You saved my Life Mate!”
