"I would recommend the work of the physiotherapist Michael Otto without reservation. I have consulted a number of other physiotherapist in Exeter over the past seven years; none of whom ever really came close to resolving the back and ankle pain that I had experienced. Michael's approach is marked by detailed assessment which extends beyond the joing causing discomfort; an approach where the functioning of the whole body is considered rather than a very narrow focus on the site of the pain. For me, he was able to provide pain relief through massage and then in consultation with me provided longer term solutions that were manageable. His treatment has been supportive and very effective".
Michael has a particular interest in treating injuries incurred by runners and joggers. Running injuries occur because the body is not shock absorbing efficiently which results in excessive force being placed into structures leading to strains and pains. Michael treats the injury and teaches people how to restore fluidity into their running with amazing results for both new and seasoned runners. Michael's clients have developed the ability to control and prevent recurring and long-lasting injuries, see below for testimonials:
