Great physio. Have been to a few other physios in Belfast, but fitfor/life Physiotherapy is by far the best. Steven knows his stuff and is always on hand for advice. Would definitely recommend him to anyone.

I found Steven at Fit for Life extremely knowledgeable and proactive when treating my injury. My injury was pinpointed quickly, a treatment plan developed and following my sessions at the clinic I was provided with a number of exercises to continue my rehabilitation in my own time and Steven was always happy to offer advice and support during this process. The service throughout was excellent and I would highly recommend Fit For Life Physiotherapy!
