I came to see Dave via a recommendation, following surgery on my big toe. Before any physio I was very disgruntled by the extremely slow recovery of my mobility in my foot following the operation as I am normally very active. I started to see Dave twice a week initially which then reduced to once a week. He gave me different exercises in each session as a progression and treated my foot with massage and ultra sound. I soon began to see the improvement. I would highly recommend Dave and his team for physio for any injury. Friendly and extremely knowledgeable. More...

I've been visiting Dave for the last six weeks, following a very painful lower leg/ankle break. I feel I've now turned the corner to a full recovery following Dave's hands-on support and helpful advice. Thanks again.

I've visited Dave on many occasions over the past five years for back, knee and shoulder. I originally visited with a knee problem which had stopped me being as mobile as I should be for the past two years - The NHS had gone as far as they could but within 10 minutes, Dave had identified the problem and after a course of treatment I was back to exercise and walked the South Coast Path across Dorset! I would recommend Dave and the team for any musculoskeletal issues you may have - and you don't have to be a professional athlete! More...

I'm not a fitness person or an athlete - I'm a disabled person who has broken over 35 bones. So I've worked with dozens of physiotherapists all over the country, and I've been coming to Dave when I need more than the NHS basics for almost a decade because yes, he is that good. So if you're comparing potential physios, this is the one I'd recommend. More...

A friend recommended Tom at Physio Fitness to me after I injured my arm playing tennis. Tom was very professional and through a combination of intensive massage and exercises, my arm now feels great! He explained what the problem was and how we needed to fix it very clearly at the beginning. I would recommend this service. More...

A few years ago I fractured my 5th metatarsal in my right foot. After numerous x-rays and what seemed like forever I was advised that it was all mended and I could go back to running. Every time I ran I was in agony with my foot.After seeing Physio Fitness at a White Star Running event they advised it looked like I had scar tissue that had built up around my ankle. It transpires that while I kept the weight off my foot to repair the fracture I had also torn muscles around my ankle which should have been stretched on a regular basis. I booked an appointment with Tom Jenkins and honestly doubted there was anything they could do.Not going to say it didn't hurt but the deep massage that was provided to my ankle over time got easier and the scar tissue was broken down. Tom also helped on giving me exercises to increase the strength on my weak right leg. The support and advice given was great and has given me the confidence that I can run again.2 months later I was pain free! Running is going great i've even been able run a half marathon. Still working on the exercises and all going well. I can't thank Physio Fitness for all their help and support. The whole team are a pleasure to know. Thank you xx More...

I was recommended physio fitness by a friend of mine who I play football with after I struggled with an ankle injury that just wouldn’t go away. I saw Tom who was very knowledgeable and professional, and he diagnosed what was wrong and gave me a personalised plan and exercises to get me back to full fitness. The site in Parley is lovely and also has great bits of equipment and technology that helped my ankle massively. I would definitely use again, and would absolutely recommend to others. Thanks Tom and the team! More...

I have seen Tom, one of the senior physio's, in the past following a knee injury and more recently a calf injury both sustained playing football. I had treatment and a rehabilitation program put together to help me get back to playing as quickly as possible, both ensuring I was ready and giving me strategies to avoid future injury.Tom kept me fully up to speed with what the problem was and explained the process and expected timescales of recovery throughout the treatment.Tom & the team always make you feel relaxed in their friendly environment, I would definitely recommend their services.

Had ongoing problems with my back for the past 5 years, I've seen chiros and osteopaths, but Tom at physio fitness was the first person to truly help! Diagnosed the problem and made every effort to fix and not just mask the problem! Would recommend these guys to anyone with muscular pain! More...

My husband recommended me to try this practice after they sorted out his back. I had beed suffering from what I thought was Sciatica since 2004. Dave and his team have done wonders. I no longer live off ibuprofen, I can touch my toes again, my body no longer aches every morning, my dance classes have improved dramatically, in fact everything is feeling good and I am only half way through my course of treatment. I can honestly recommend this team, a) to accurately assess what is actually the problem, and then b) give you a course of treatment and home exercises that really work. Absolutely brilliant.

PhysioFitness was recommended to me by a consultant surgeon whom I had visited following a hip/groin injury that I picked up whilst playing football. It had already been 3 months since my injury and I was making very little progress towards recovery. On my first appointment, Tom at PhysioFitness made a full assessment of my injury and gave me a realistic timescale to return to playing football. During the following 6 weeks I followed a personalised program of stretching and strengthening exercises, with feedback and assessment along the way. I am so happy with the results – my strength & stability has massively improved, my injury has almost fully recovered and I am looking forward to playing my first game of football this week! In my final session I was given a home exercise program designed to help me avoid further injury in the future, which is very helpful. PhysioFitness are an extremely professional team who also manage to create a friendly and relaxed atmosphere. They show great pride in their work and were determined to achieve a positive outcome for me – which I am very pleased to say that they have. I can’t recommend PhysioFitness highly enough. As a 50+ year old still trying to delay ‘walking football’ I am sure that I may experience the occasional injury in the future. If so, I will have no hesitation in visiting PhysioFitness again. Thank you. More...

I was looking for someone to support my rehab after breaking my ankle in two places. Prior to my injury I was rowing competitively, doing CrossFit and wakeboarding and I wanted to get back in good shape to do all of those sports again. Working with Tom at Physio Fitness I found someone who really understood my goals and was both supportive and challenging in getting me back to fitness. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend. More...

I’ve been seeing Tom since July for chronic hamstring tendonopathy after a number of years of pain. Tom recommended shock wave therapy and supplemented this with rehabilitation exercises. I can now get back to running pain free, I still have further strengthening to do but Tom has given me the tools and confidence to carry these out effectively at home. I would highly recommend Tom, he is extremely knowledgeable, patient, a pleasure to be around and takes huge pride in getting results for his clients. More...

Last summer an old ski injury to my knee came back to haunt me! I was training for a half marathon and suddenly my knee gave up! I was in a great deal of pain and struggling to walk! One visit to Physio Fitness and excellent strapping, enabled me to begin to walk more comfortably! A plan was put together to rehabilitate my knee, which included a long term preventative program. Having stuck to the advice I am back to running half marathons with no pain! The care and attention from Physio Fitness was first class. More...

After suffering for 4 years with Chronic Pain in my back and hips I had given up hope of ever having a pain free day. I had been seen by so many different therapists/physios/rehab clinics/doctors and no one could shed any light on my pain. In March 2017 I lost my job after serving for 12 years in the military and I hit rock bottom. Then 2 months ago I decided to give physio one more go and I contacted Physio Fitness Dorset and met the inspirational Mr Dave Mott. This man and his team have been totally incredible in helping me and through the use of the hypervibe and gravityfit technology and Dave's wealth of knowledge i am now believing that there is light at the end of tunnel in my pain management. I can't thank Physio Fitness Dorset enough for their help and support and I don't think I could have achieved being selected for the UK Invictus Team without your physiotherapy! If there is anyone suffering with pain or an injury look no further than Physio Fitness Dorset!! Thank you Dave x More...

When revisiting my consultant after treatment with Helen at PhysioFitness he was visibly surprised at my foot. The recovery has been better than he was expecting, what you have been doing for me has been 'spot on'. This week I had 3 busy days at work and yesterday I was gardening. Before seeing you this would not have been possible without pain and swelling but my foot has coped very without any swelling or discomfort. The sessions I have been regularly been having have worked wonders. I am so pleased with what you have done for me. More...

I would thoroughly recommend this practice, having had treatment from:Tom at Verwood, for Neck and Back problems and Dave at Bournemouth for a torn AchillesBoth were very professional and I came away from the sessions feeling much better With my current Neck and Back issues, Tom tailors each session to how I'm feeling and what hurts on the day. At the end of each massage session I feel physically and mentally relaxed More...

Was treated by Tom for an injury to my MCL, from the moment i first phoned PhysioFitness it was a hassle free and professional service i received. Tom was able to see my injury the same day i phoned, something i have never experienced with any other physios or doctors. The injury was assessed and Tom soon set about getting me back playing Football again, showing me numerous exercises to regain strength as well as writing a detailed 3 week training programme, something i found very useful.After a few visits to see Tom my injury was healing well and he set me up with another 3 week cycle before i was able to resume full contact sport ready for the new season.A couple of weeks later i received an email from Tom who was checking my knee was recovering and feeling ok, which shows he always wants the best for the patient.Would recommend Tom and PhysioFitness to anybody that has suffered from an injury or is in need of a physio. Excellent from start to finish. More...

I've used Dave's services over the last three years to effectively treat Frozen Shoulder, Tennis Elbow and a pulled hamstring. I'm nearly 60 and still playing table tennis at County level thanks to Dave and his team. His advice is friendly and knowledgeable and I think it helps that he has a professional sporting background. He uses a variety of treatments including the latest techniques such as shockwave therapy which in my case quickly sorted out the Tennis Elbow without the need for painful cortisone injections! I have tried a number of other clinics before but I'll be sticking with Dave from now on. More...

Got a sports injury or just wanting a massage? Don't look any further than Physic Fitness Bournemouth. I went to see one of Dave's latest recruits Jess for the first time for a 30 minute massage. As a Photographer & Graphic Designer I am regularly out shooting weddings & Commercial work as well as spending a lot of time in front of a computer screen causing me to get lower back pains. Jess did an excellent job relieving me of all pain and removing any tight knots. I will be booking in again soon for another massage. I highly recommend Dave & his team! More...

Dave, Tom and the team provide an excellent and personal service. As a semi professional athlete i can safely say that the reason i am still performing at the top of my game is due to the weekly treatment that i receive from the experts at Physio Fitness. I would not hesitate to recommend anyone to use the service offered especially the new shockwave tool, which gives amazing results. More...
