"Patrick is brilliant"

"Patrick is a total legend. Went in with a lot of pain from a serious injury. His knowledge, advice and work on my plantar fascia was second to none. Got pain, Go and see the guys at Hands On." 

"Thanks to Patrick and his work on my right knee, I can now climb the stairs properly for the first time in months! I'd been going up and down sideways on, right leg straight and leading as I was in so much pain and the knee would often give way on me. The left knee was beginning to give me trouble too on account of my over-compensating movements. Patrick isolated the cause of my problems straight away and gave me useful exercises to activate the right muscles in my legs. I feel so much better for them ."

"Patrick has without doubt enabled me to cope with my long term injury and chronic pain so I rely more on appointments with him over medication now. Immensely knowledgeable, always sharing helpful tips plus a wonderful team - I cannot recommend Patrick Meyer and Hands On highly enough!"

"My back/hip are so much better after being a nightmare for years”
