Workplaces can be cruel to feet making them painful and causing a wide range of problems. Daily job demands are likely to include walking, standing still for extended periods, lifting heavy items, climbing steps and climbing on and off equipment. During a working day, your feet can absorb several times your body weight and can cover up to 15 miles. This can lead to a range of short and long term problems especially if we wear poorly fitting shoes or high heels. Additional problems frequently encountered include fungal infections and ingrowing toenails. Sore and tired feet also put employees at an increased risk of injury from tripping and falling and the constant pain can lead to low motivation and other emotional problems.

I have used various services at Perfect Balance Clinic for over three years on and off for a variety of issues as I have been training and picking up injuries, as well as rehab work that needed doing. I have found them to be very professional, as you would expect, however the really interesting thing is their flexibility. They are always able to see me at short notice and fit me in and secondly they are very quickly able to identify the issue I have and use a variety of techniques, which doesn’t limit them to one course of action.Over many years I have used a variety of therapists and am now confident that whenever I have a problem they are just a phone call away and are able to help quickly.
Perfect Balance Clinic provided a solution to what was a long-term unresolved back problem. They brought me back to fitness with expert treatment and have since provided a first rate maintenance regime accommodating sessions around my busy work schedule which has kept me fit and active. I have recommended them to a number of friends and colleagues
I have been using Perfect Balance Clinic for several years, as have members of my family and other friends. Perfect Balance Clinics treatments go way beyond what one might expect – always thoughtful and taking into account how one lives life and work. Their knowledge of the body has also been helpful in identifying ailments in family members that seasoned medics have missed. I can’t recommend them highly enough.
There are very few musculoskeletal practitioners who have the knowledge, skills and ability to think deeply about each individual they treat.
Efficient, helpful and pleasant reception staff compliment expert and knowledgeable therapists which you can trust wholeheartedly
I can't speak highly enough of how much Vijay helped me with a number of issues ranging from neck and back pain to issues in my knees and ankles. I would without doubt recommend him and I can honestly say that he is the best Osteopath that I have received treatment for
