If a singer is injured, or needs sorting out, I ring Bernadette & Marie and they always find a space for emergency treatment. They understand that performers need to be back on their feet quickly, but there are no compromises about working towards full recovery.
The house style is more bracing instructor than ministering angel, but you always get a cup of coffee and a good laugh – and you get better!
And they are both definitely the nice one.....

Bernadette and Marie - the only two women in my life who have touched my body and inflicted pain with such amazing results.
They are not only brilliant physiotherapists, they are a complete double act and deserve their own TV series.
They have cured my shoulder and my knees after an operation on both.
I cant wait for something else to go wrong so I can go in again!
Some will say that life is a treadmill, but this treadmill is a joy, full of pain and laughter, their humour is all part of the treatment, may they go on forever.

Mike Riley Premiership Referee
Note to all football fans everywhere it's their fault!! It's due to Bernadette and Marie that I am still refereeing. For the last 20 years their skill, dedication and gentle persuasion have kept me on the pitch. I owe them everything and for that you can make them pay!!

Treadmill play a big part in the success of the Leeds Ultimate Frisbee teams and the Great Britain teams through treating the numerous and varied injuries of local Ultimate players. As with most athletes we normally come in impatient for a quick fix and never like to hear the word ‘rest’ so their proactive and positive approach towards treating injuries is always much appreciated (even if we don’t show it at the time). Having treated a good number of Ultimate players now, Bernadette, Marie & Steve are familiar with the demands of the sport and are conscious of the time scales we have to work in to achieve fitness for important tournaments.

I managed to give myself Achilles tendonopathy 3 months ago whilst racing. I asked a number of medical friends who all recommended the Leeds Sports Injury & Physiotherapy Clinic in Headingley. 3 months later (this injury takes an age to rectify) I am now running again.
This is due to Marie but especially to Bernadette who took me in hand, gave me a strenuous exercise regime to do every day and certainly checked to make sure I was doing it! She made minor modifications at each visit including exercises to rework my core to ensure that this problem hopefully will not happen again. I had a crap running style! My ankle and calf was also massaged and 'electrocuted' on their special equipment at every visit. They also recommended a podiatrist who has custom made lifts for my running shoes. After 6 sessions I started to walk/run under her strict instructions. I would not dare deviate! After 2 more sessions I started to gently jog around the 5k Leeds Park Run. I have now completed it twice with no after effects and shortly will attempt a very slow 10k run.

Bernadette is brilliant at what she does and also very entertaining. Each session was exhausting but enjoyable. Ask her about her pet tarantula - it somehow does not seem surprising that she has one of these as a pet!

I will recommend anyone with a sports injury in the future to go to either of these 2 ladies.
