  2. Favourite sports?
    I love running and cycling now 🙂
  3. Favourite area of the body to treat?  
    The lower back, it is a very common injury and challenging to treat with multiple predisposing factors.



Having suffered with back problems for over 13 years, I have always been sceptical about seeking medical help due to my fear of making things worse (previous experience). I came to clinic4sports to seek help with an acute flare up of sciatica and I can not thank them enough. The pain at its worst was so bad that I couldn’t even get out of bed. The techniques utilised helped me get relief from pain that I was suffering with for over 2 weeks. We tried manipulation and acupuncture and although initially I was a bit sore, the true effects of the treatment were felt as promised a few hours after my treatment with Daniela. That together with the light stretching exercises recommended have made a huge difference on a problem that is so physically and mentally draining. She is extremely knowledgeable and professional in her approach and I highly recommend anyone suffering with this debilitating problem to see them. You will not regret it. Thank you guys!
I am very satisfied with the service provided by Daniela, She was professional and very knowledgeable and with her treatment she relieve me from lots of pain. I will definitely book another appointment with Daniela as soon as I can. Thank you for your email and I am looking forward to seeing you guys soon!
Hi Samia, could you please thank Daniela for sorting me out last week – I got a PB (second life!) of 55 minutes at the Kew Gardens 10k race. Thanks

I saw Daniela when I had a lot of pain due to bursitis in my shoulder. She gave me a deep sports massage that was sore, but made a massive improvement. She also took me through exercises and stretches to help the problem improve. I couldn’t recommend her enough. Great service, price and aftercare.

If you are a recreational player and if you are anything like me - cutting corners during warm up and cool down - chances are sooner rather than later you will find yourself looking for a physio. My truant ways lead me to the hands of the awesome physio's at Clinic4Sport - Daniela and Chris. They were empathetic to my situation and helped me recover from a shoulder issue on one occasion and an Achilles tendon injury on another. They know their stuff, know what got me there and how to get me out of that situation. Daniela helped me heal quicker through acupuncture techniques (those long needles may look scary, but go past that and those things help more than those hurt). While I got a list of do's and don'ts on paper, these days Clinic4Sport has a shiny new app for Android and iOS that contains short videos of exercises should you feel the need to refer to something while doing those rehab exercises. All in all, it is a good place with knowledgeable people who understand sports and want to get you back to your sport as soon as possible.
