About The Trainer Francis Connor

I specialise in managing and treating conditions that have previously not responded to surgery, physiotherapy or osteopathy. Often called upon for my expert opinion and skills in helping solve some of the more complex injuries we see here at the clinic. This puts me at an excellent advantage to help train people about manual handling skills along with the consequences of poor technique.

Knowledgeable practitioner who was able to look at what was the underlying issues related to my back pain, rather than just treating the acute incident. Easy to book and pay online

What an absolutely fantastic practice for both physio and sports massage. Would highly recommend. Would not go anywhere else.
I turned up quite desperate and in a lot of pain, Francis was able to improve my situation from the first visit. 2 trapped nerves in my back and hip I was definitely at my worst but was treated with care, dignity and patience. I wasn’t fobbed off with poxy exercises to do, my treatment was hands on, my body manipulated to ease pressure on the nerves which had me pretty much pain free after a few visits. I still see Francis but my appointments arnt as regular now, my appointments are more preventative. Would recommend highly 👍

Never really been to of these before. Really friendly nice people who are very professional. Which is what you want when you sitting in your underwear things what's this about. Anyway my back was ridiculously painful. I was unable to walk even a mile without having to sit down. Now it's fine I feel better, sleep better move better. Well worth going well worth the money.

After years of sciatica, 9 months of paralysis and 16months waiting on the hospital Francis mostly fixed me within 5 sessions. Cannot fault the gentleman, caring, knowledgeable and professional. Huge thanks,

When my wife saw Francis for the first time she could barely walk up the stairs to his practice. She left walking normally and was pain free within three visits. We cannot thank him enough. Highly recommended.

I visited Francis a couple of times to treat a hip problem, I ended up having a 3d gait analysis on another visit, it proved to be really helpful and informative. He was really friendly and extremely knowledgeable at what he does. I would definitely visit again and would recommend him to everyone.
