CK Clinic

57A New Rd, Chippenham SN15 1ES, UK – 01249 324166

Excellent service provided by Chris at the practice. Have had a number of experiences with physiotherapists across the UK, and this one without doubt tops them all. Attention to detail and a thorough after care service to manage rehabilitation. Would highly recommend to anyone who needs to be put back together again!

I contacted Chris because I had extreme pain in my knee and had difficulty walking. After my first treatment, the pain was significantly reduced and my mobility improved with each subsequent treatment. Chris was able to fit my appointments at times that were convenient to my work schedule. The doctor did nothing except prescribe me anti inflammatory pills. Chris actually got to the source of the problem and resolved the issue. Many thanks, much appreciated!!
