THE TEAM

With his strong work ethic and attention to detail Peter has built a team with a similar ethos to himself as he has expanded and developed the practice. The clinic has now grown into a 4 Physio practice supported with  an expert Podiatrist and backed up with competent office staff.

At Belfast Sports and Spinal we work very much as that team as we know that sometimes 2 or 3 heads are better than 1 to give our patients the best care they require.

I would recommend Belfast Sports and Spinal to anyone! My back is so much better after just a few treatments. The staff are very welcoming and I’m glad to say I don’t need to come back but I wouldn’t mind if I did.

 Recently Peter has added acupuncture to my physio sessions and i’ve found great pain relief from this, my shoulder feels brand new!

Above all, I have found Peter to be friendly, reliable, professional, competent and goes the extra mile in order to help me.
