why physiotherapy?

At Barefoot we are the experts at solving your unique pain puzzle.

Whether you want to compete in high-performance sports or simply enjoy everyday activities pain-free, we are committed to helping you achieve a full recovery and get you back to a pain-free active lifestyle as quickly as possible.

At Barefoot we are the experts at solving your unique pain puzzle. We use science-based treatments underpinned by expert clinical reasoning gained from years of experience and further learning to provide an accurate diagnosis and find a solution to a variety of conditions. From long-standing pain, sports injuries to all manner of aches and niggles.

Clients trust us to deliver a thorough detailed assessment and an accurate diagnosis with a personalised treatment and management plan. This means our appointments are typically longer than most clinics as we would rather see you for a longer session than more frequent, albeit shorter sessions. The extra time allows for a more thorough treatment session and ensures that you are on the right track to recovery.



We work with you to find all the contributors to your pain and injury.

We look at out how your problem fits together in the overall scheme of your body and guide you through a comprehensive plan to solve these issues and get you back to doing the things you love.


Reputation built by word of mouth not reliant on conveyor-belt of patients


Treatment is tailored to the individual


Dedicated to proven scientific methods


We believe that the hands of good Physiotherapists are one of our greatest assets; they are the instruments we use to assess, diagnose and treat your musculoskeletal conditions


No pseudo-science, no treatment vouchers, no gimmicks, no excessive visits, our ‘special offer’ is to provide the most effective treatment possible.

Clinical Lead and Owner

James is a specialist MSK and sports physiotherapist with over 20 years of experience across a variety of sectors including NHS, Sport, Occupational Health and ergonomics and a number of private settings. He has worked in elite and professional sport and has a special interest in Crossfit and running injuries as well as chronic pain conditions.

James has extensive post-graduate training in an extended range of techniques and treatment approaches. His passion for the use of evidence-based practice and commitment to helping people overcome pain and injury in the long term, rather than temporary quick fixes, gimmicks and short term ‘fool’s gold’ led to forging his own path with Barefoot Physio. A philosophy born out of the desire to depart from a conveyor belt fashion of high patient turnover, choosing quality over quantity. James developed a reputation for being able to help where previous treatments failed. His services soon became sought after enough to relocate to a bespoke facility and evolve barefoot to become a holistic multidisciplinary clinic.
