“I attended the Physio Room in Hertford due to ongoing RSI issue. The treatment and information I received was excellent, the practice was very professional and the physiotherapist was extremely knowledgeable. I would recommend.”

“Being the over exuberant person I am, and believing I still have a body of a 21 year old, I am unfortunately a regular at the Physio Room! Ian always seems to get me back up and running ASAP. Top physio and would recommend!”

“As a childrens nurse my back has suffered awkward movements for too long, and it began to affect my life and work. I had had a recommendation for ‘The Physio Room’ and found it very easy to get an appointment. Ian was very professional, and quickly identified the problem. After a couple of sessions and some advice on exercises, my back was feeling much better. I wish i had gone years ago when i first felt it twinge! Great practice and have since recommended to others who have been just as satisfied with their results.”

“Both my wife and I have visited Ian Goodall over several years with a range of problems. We have always been very impressed with his knowledge, expertise and understanding. We have never been pressed to continue with treatment and feel very comfortable in his presence. We now bypass the local doctor with any relevant problem which, on one occasion, resulted in the diagnosis that urgent surgery was needed.”

“I went to the physio room because of an ongoing back problem. After a diagnosis and two treatments, it was greatly improved, and much more mobile. The whole approach was very professional, and the Physiotherapist was very knowledgeable. I would certainly recommend it.”

“I’ve been going to The Physio Room in Hertford for a few years now, with various running, induced injuries. Ian always get to the root problem/cause on the first visit and set about getting me ‘Straight’ again. He does his bit, and sends me on my way to do my part. It’s a great partnership that works every time. He is very professional in his approach towards his work which comes across upon meeting him.”

~ Tim Saban ~

“My family have had great service and many aches and pains are banished in one visit. The parking is very easy right outside the front door and free for the duration of your visit which is a plus.

By far the best Physio in the area.”

~ Mick Jones ~

“I have been treated by Ian on three occasions now in different sports injury areas and each time he has worked together with me to resolve the problem with treatment, exercises and support/encouragement through the ups and downs of the recovery to get me up and running again. I would recommend.”

~ Andy Martin ~

“Excellent Physio.
Made my neck ache go away with just 2 sessions, expected a lot more.
Good Job.”

~ Graham Cove ~

“Ian is very knowledgeable. professional and more importantly very able. Good listener and does not waste valuable time, gets on with treating your injury/complaint.”

~ Ray Jackson ~

“I went to The Physio Room in March 2013 as I had a long-standing shoulder problem that i needed to manage as I was planning to row the Atlantic in December of the same year (!!). The treatment and advice I got in the 8 months leading up to the event were superb; the physio sessions and the exercises/stretches I was given were spot on and there’s no way I could have gotten through 8 months of hard training and 61 days on the ocean without Ian’s support.

Could not recommend more highly.”

“10/10 Ian Goodall. I visited Ian with no idea of what my problem was, and after about 10 minutes he diagnosed the problem and really helped me to make a speedy recovery. I would highly recommend The Physio Room. Great people and great service. Thanks Ian.”

“I’ve had to see Ian at the Physio Room for a few hiccups over the two years and cannot praise him and his practice enough. Having seen other physios prior to Ian, I had a chronic knee injury, that whilst took time to begin to control, with Ian’s help are finally solved and I was able to go back to playing football once again.

Ian is very friendly and communicative and I quickly built a witty rapport with him over my appointments, making a visit for painful therapy far easier. Whilst I can’t have been the easiest patient either, Ian always had a great deal of patience with me throughout my treatment! I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend The Physio Room to anyone looking for a physio and indeed have done so.”

“I have been using the Physio Room for over 10 years when I need specific physio treatment. I would not go anywhere else. Ian practices at a very high standard, and evaluations, consultations and treatment are second to none. Would recommend you try The Physio Room!”

~ Tracey Wrangle ~

“I booked some sessions with Ian at The Physio Room to treat a recurring back injury. Ian is very professional, knowledgeable and down-to-earth. The treatment really helped my recovery, and the advice on exercises was also really useful. I would recommend to others.”

~ Derek Novavi ~

“I have visited Ian at The Physio Room a number of times and would not consider going anywhere else. He has always been very thorough with his questioning and observations in order to make a diagnosis. He explains everything clearly and shows you exercises that you can do at home to speed up your recovery. He has a wealth of knowledge and is always willing to answer questions-very patiently!!
A while ago I had a fall and injured my foot/ankle. Hospital staff insisted that there was no bone damaged and treated it as a sprain. Ian was convinced that there was a fracture and finally after 6 months, and a private MRI scan, the fracture was discovered! I will always be grateful to Ian for the diagnosis and his encouragement to persist in getting further investigations. I would definitely recommend The Physio Room due to Ian’s professionalism, skill and most of all his positivity and empathy.”

~ Sue Smith ~

“Ian is a great physio! I am a landscape gardener and put my back and muscles under a lot of pressure. I have used other physios that never got the results that Ian has managed. It’s nice to know anything that aches will get sorted with Ian’s experience and expertise! I would not hesitate to recommend Ian to friends or all my work colleagues, and I look forward to using him for many more years. Safe to say 100% the best physio in Herts.”

“I have visited The Physio Room many times over the years with various problems. I have found Ian to be very easy to talk to, he is very knowledgeable and extremely helpful. Great service and highly recommended.”

~ Susan Glasspool ~

“I’ve recently completed an intensive course of treatment with Ian after breaking my arm/shoulder skiing. Despite my fears, Ian has managed to get my arm working as it should again. Not only is he a great physio, he is personable and very patient! I’d have no hesitation recommending Ian to anyone.”

“Ian is very professional and very understanding to your specific needs
He has helped me a lot with bad back and neck pains

Great service”

~ Daniel Barritt ~

“Ian has now treated 2 members of our family with serious injuries – he worked with my husband following complex shoulder surgery and my 12 year-old son who’d suffered a torn ligament in his ankle. He is kind and calm and has a very reassuring manner, which is so important especially when a child is concerned and in pain. He sets achievable goals, and works with the patient and injury for optimum short and long-term benefits. Most importantly he has achieved fantastic results for both my husband and son. My husband has regained a range of movement that the doctors/surgeon thought unlikely after seeing the initial injury. We would highly recommend Ian and The Physio Room to anyone.”

~ Melanie Archer ~

“A calf injury left me unable to run for over a year, with a number of physios and specialists unable to solve the problem. Ian was able to get me back running in just over two months – just as he said he would!

He combined intense treatment of the affected area with solid guidance on the importance of mechanics and running form. Ian is a runner himself which meant his advice was not just theory but based on his own experience as well.

In short, don’t waste time or money anywhere else and go straight to The Physio Room!”

~ Chris Bergin ~

“I was in so much pain with horrible spams in my lower back. Ian kindly took me in a last minute appointment and diagnosed the issue with my back. With his advise and some sessions the pain disappeared and he has managed to get me back in shape! I highly recommend The Physio Room, Ian is very professional and cares about the patient. If you are in pain as I was, don’t doubt! Go to visit Ian!!”

~ Ane Allende ~

“I had one session at the Physio Room in February 2016 and it was money very well spent. I chose the Physio Room because of the positive reviews so my own one is overdue. I have had professional treatment for my lower back to a private treatment high standard and care before, and The Physio Room was excellent in comparison. The pain i thought was from weak glutes was from their diagnosis most likely an L5 bulge. I adjusted my training regime to allow more time resting and became more posture aware.As a result the pain was gone in about 5 weeks and i feel confident to pick up my running again.”

~ Paul Hammond ~

“Went to see Ian Goodall 8 years ago with a shoulder injury. He didn’t attempt physiotherapy but advised seeing a consultant orthopaedic surgeon. As a result an MRI scan and physiotherapy advice I made a full recovery from what was a serious injury.

Recently, I further injured my shoulder and Ian diagnosed torn tendons of specific muscles. An NHS X-ray and ultra-sound scan later confirmed his diagnosis. An excellent physiotherapist. I’m very confident of Ian’s competence and professionalism and feel safe in his hands.”

~ Grahame Ainge ~

“Quite simply, Ian is excellent.

I went to to The Physio Room in March 2013 as I had a long-standing shoulder problem that i needed to manage as I was planning to row the Atlantic in December of the same year (!!). The treatment and advice I got in the 8 months leading up to the event were superb; the physio sessions and the exercises/stretches I was given were spot on and there’s no way I could have gotten through 8 months of hard training and 61 days on the ocean without Ian’s support.

“I’ve been going to Ian now at the Physio Room for some time and his professional care and thoroughness have always been impressive. His knowledge of physiology is excellent, and he takes great care in considering the best treatment for specific conditions.I would heartily recommend him.”

~ Melinda Hill ~

“I can’t say enough about what a great help Ian was in helping me recover from a torn hamstring. He has done more than just help me recover he has also advised me on the best way to limit the chances of it tearing again. Ian outlined a new programme for me which has helped with my recovery and flexibility in my legs. A great help and I fully recommend Ian to anyone with any kind of injury.”
