After years of poor posture at work I developed a painful onset of scoliosis (curvature of the spine) Fatima (physio) & Stephen (Osteopath) have built me back up and really eased my pain. They have worked miracles in my eyes.read more

Stephen is an excellent osteopath. He managed to find the causes of my issues and then fix them, something several professionals have failed with before. Thanks!

I've been seeing Stephen for a number of years and with his help I have come a long way. I've gone from high levels of pain and unable to do much to shortly running my first half marathon - serious progress! Stephen is very knowledgeable and brilliant at what he does. The team are excellent, very high standards of customer service. Highly recommend.read more

Being familiar with the nervous and skeletal system, Stephen assists in not only the immediate problem you may have through manipulation but after follow on sessions he has comprehensive notes and promotes exercises to support your recoveryread more

Stephen is a Wizard I saw Stephen after my neck locked up playing golf. He managed to see me last minute the next day and diagnosed the issue straight away. After initial treatment he restored some movement and made me aware of how it would feel over the next few days. After a 2nd treatment it is now almost at full movement and pain is minimal. He also addressed other issues in my hips which may be a factor in the overall cause of the problem. Thanks for sorting me out! read more

Stephen at Perfect Balance is absolutely the best! After an extremely traumatic accident, paralyzing me on my left hand side & endless other injuries - I was in so much pain I could hardly get out of bed ever. I started seeing Stephen and, with a loving & caring attitude, he has totally given me back the life in my life! He's done more for me than any other specialist surgeon, I will be eternally grateful to himread more

I've had several treatments now with Mat, and am continually impressed with the professionalism and skill he works with, easy to talk to and obviously extremely knowledgeable about the practice. He doesn't just stop with the treatment but actively recommends stretches and exercises to strengthen and build upon the work he does, he is clearly very passionate about what he does and this shows. I would most definitely recommend Mat.read more

I went to see Zoe with severe muscular back pain as a result of a combination of factors that I'm sure affect many professionals, but on this occasion resulted in a painful muscle spasm and restricted movement: repetitive strain and poor posture from using a laptop, carrying heavy bags and playing sport without being properly fit! As a result of a series of hour long sessions that have been hugely effective, I have learnt that a massage from a highly trained sports physio is a scientific, anatomical treatment involving a range of techniques, rather than a comfortable way to spend an hour in the middle of the day! I'm very grateful.read more

I feel the service that I have received at PB Clinic to be over and above what I have experienced elsewhere. My tennis elbow was really getting me down. I had seen a few people who were great, but we were not exposing the real cause and were making some progress that soon slipped back due to my hectic lifestyle. I had Shockwave treatment that was extremely painful, BUT I can see that the pain was what was needed in this instance. I committed to following the daily post treatment rehab, assigned by the practitioner, and now my elbow is like brand new! Great work PB and thank you!!read more
