Matt was brilliant. He always took care to explain my injury and treatments in an understandable way, and made rehabilitation an enjoyable experience! -Y.G
I cannot speak highly enough about Matthew who assessed my condition. He took time to listen, gave me simple exercises for the home and advised cortisone injections which procedure should take place soon externally. He is a very caring person and a good listener and follows up immediately on the next phase of treatment, keeping me informed by email at regular intervals- T.P, 82

WE VALUE YOUR FEEDBACK
We would love to know what we are doing well, and what we could do better with.
Please leave us an honest review about your experience with Azzurro below:
Take a look at our Google Reviews >here!
Matt sits leagues above other Physio's I have previously seen, largely due to his approach of incorporating strength & conditioning work to his treatments. This has meant my progression back to fitness after a back injury has been much smoother.
Matt gives you the confidence to move outside of your injuries comfort zone slowly and methodically, in order to build back up to where you were previously. He also goes the extra mile for his clients, checking in after sessions and sending journals and articles relating to the issue at hand, so you can continue educating yourself outside of the sessions
Couldn't recommend more highly !
"Matt Anstey did a brilliant job. Probably the best healthcare professional I've seen. Really understood the problem & gave exactly the right treatment"
"I used to think that people who went to the gym were a bit strange as I much preferred outdoor activities.
However, I have changed my mind completely, not least because I now feel so good, both physically and mentally. I’m really sold on the benefits of strength training for keeping one fit and active as one grows older.
So, if you are reading this, and have realised that you are not as fit or strong as you used to be but would like to get back to a physical activity that you used to love, even if it’s just gardening or walking the dog up that hill which you used to do with ease, I would strongly encourage you to get some specialist help from Matt in order to help you achieve your goal, and, mostly importantly, not to give up! If, as a 60 year old women, I can return to a physically demanding sport like skiing, and ski better that ever before, then you can achieve your goal too!"
"As a 52 year old and long-term sufferer of chronic lower back pain, believe me, I have seen a few health practitioners over the years!
As well as dealing very effectively with my immediate pain, Matt is forward thinking and focused on methods to improve my flexibility as well as strengthen my body and muscles for long term gain. He created a personalised program which included both stretching and gym-related exercises which have really helped me to build my strength and aid postural correction. Having gym equipment on site is a godsend as he is able to demonstrate how to execute the gym exercises correctly with my limitations.
I cannot recommend Matt highly enough as I have seen a massive improvement in my overall health and fitness. I now go to the gym and play golf 3-4 times a week, something I was not previously able to do. A very genuine and caring physiotherapist who wants you to regain fitness so that you can do the things you enjoy most."
"Matthew has enabled me with motivation, demonstration and encouragement to fix chronic pain I've had for 20 years!"
"Keep on doing what you are doing!
Matt- Legend - So knowledgeable and helpful.
I'll spread the word.... Physio is the way forward!"
"Matthew diagnosed my long term (Over 10 years) shoulder and neck problem. Having had previous doctors and physios try to help, Matthew knew how to deal with my problem helping me to understand what I should do to retrain muscles and cure this pain. Matthew has amazingly, after so many years of me having a painful shoulder and neck, through massage and exercises, cured the problem. A very skilled and empathic practioner."
"I can't recommend Matt highly enough - having had an ongoing running injury for several years and having been to several physio's I had just about given up hope of ever being able to run again. I visited Matt for a sports massage... and obviously mentioned my injury. Matt quickly diagnosed the 'real' problem and after 6 or so physio sessions & exercise guidance to help strenghthen my muscles over a couple of months I am now back running. Once a runner always a runner - so massive thanks Matt!"
"I had problems with my back and a didn't know where to turn. I was recommended Azzurro by a friend and they were extremely helpful and I could not believe the progress I made to a full recovery in such a short period of time thanks to their help."
"More than just a physio! I first went for a sports massage that turned into a physio session. Matt's approach is not just to "treat the problem" but to take positive steps to stop recurrence. The fact that he has a gym and teaches body conditioning allows him to identify a variety of strengthening exercises to help solve the core problem."
"I can’t recommend Matt and Azzurro training highly enough! I began seeing Matt for sports massage due to running injuries, and instantly felt confident in his knowledge and approach using both sports massage and physiotherapy.
The sports massage was very effective in treating the immediate problem Matt was quick to identify a muscle imbalance and suggested joining his strength and conditioning class to prevent reoccurrence.
I have seen a significant improvement in my running since joining the classes, having previously stopped altogether I am now able to run pain free."
"I went to Azzurro with hamstring and knee pain as a result of training for The London Marathon. With six weeks to go I was concerned that I would not be able to complete my training. Matt assessed my problem and gave me some massage and exercises. This was so successful that I was able to complete my training and ran in The London Marathon virtually pain free and in a good time. Matt gave me the confidence to continue with my training and believe in myself.
I would not have been able to complete The Marathon if it had not been for Matt. I would certainly recommend him!"
"Having suffered from long term pain in my shoulder for a number of years, I was amazed at how much a Physiotherapy session could improve my situation. Matt Anstey was as knowledgeable as he was professional, and the exercises that he gave me have really helped.I was really impressed by the excellent equipment on site, and how Matt showed me how to maintain good form on the gym equipment so to avoid further damage to my shoulder.I recommend Azzurro and Matt very highly"
"I have been suffering from back pain in the lumbar region for about 5 years now, and after countless chiropractor appointments with no real improvement, decided to try something different. After one session with Matt Anstey, he relieved the immediate pain and gave me excercises that have ensured it hasn't returned.
Would highly recommend Matt Anstey and Azzurro to anyone who has any physiological issues."
"As a regular weekly runner, I have put up with painful knees after each run for some time, Matt carried out a full assessment and was able to identify that my running style was inefficient and partly caused by a muscle imbalance.I am now following a programme of exercise and developing a more efficient running style.I'm feeling an improvement after only a short time, and now able to more enjoy my running.I will certainly be returning to see Matt again."
