Whilst with Katherine I made a successful return to track racing in May at 5000m (15 mins 29 secs) later improving to 14 mins 38 secs by August. I also raced over10k and half Marathon in the early autumn. Regarding my training; my long runs increased to in- excess of 2 hrs without any symptoms of the previous injuries. Whilst I was able to sustain the intensity of fast 1 miles reps x 6 with a short recovery. I would like to take this opportunity to thank you, Katherine, for your treatment advice and support
Thank you so much for your important involvement with the Laban Summer School. Once again we were relatively injury-free for the fortnight - I am sure this was a lot to do with your seminars and workshops. Fantastic to have our support and hard work!
Katherine is one of the few physios I have seen who has helped me and not ridiculed me. I look healthy and well, but I have suffered years of pain and fatigue owing to Joint Hypermobility Syndrome (JHS). Katherine not only made an accurate diagnosis of my condition, but is continuing to support me whilst I get on with the exercises she gives me to do at home. My body has slowly changed from being fairly unstable in some joint areas to a more functional state. It is because of Katherine's expertise that I am managing to successfully continue doing ballet classes, safely.
Katherine really made me feel that she was treating me as an an individual, not just another routine case with routine symptoms. By the time my trapped nerve was remedied I was actually walking much better than I have for ten years or more! Debbie and Marion at reception were also very good, very helpful. I will certainly recommend. First Class.
Thank you so much for your most excellent care. Your expert attention has worked wonders with my foot and although it is not completely better (nor may every be at my age!) to be pain free is just wonderful. You may quote me anytime and I am happy to tell all I meet of your considerable expertise.)
Katherine has a warm and welcoming manner, and she strikes a good balance between physiological and psychological advice. Having seen many physiotherapists regarding my persistent back problems, I can honestly say that Katherine is one of the best.
Dear Katherine, I just wanted to say thank you so much for the miracle you have performed on Cameron's ankle. One session with you and your expert manipulation with accompanying exercises has completely cured what we were beginning to think was going to be a recurring injury from a 'weak ankle'. After following your instructions completely, our 11 year old keen footballer never even mentions his ankle, and it had been a constant problem for months. Thank you so much.
Hi Katherine, I had meant to let you know - got round injury free in 1hr 31mins so very pleased. It feels like the injury has vanished. I'm still stretching and strengthening. Thanks!(after Great North Run, 2010)
I saw you some time ago because I had started at a gym, for the first time ever, and I had a knee problem. You advised carrying on with the exercises there, exercise bike etc, but you gave me other exercises as well, to get other muscles working. Just to let you know that it has taken some time but I have stuck at the exercises and the knee problem has now almost completely disappeared. So once again I am delighted. The range of exercises I am now doing at the gym has increased. I could not of contemplated anything at the gym when I had my long standing neck/shoulder problem. So once again: many, many thanks!!

I finished the Bristol half in 1:40 mins, which I was very pleased with, thanks for getting me back on my feet ...it was 20 minutes off my time from the Great North Run. Thanks again.
I just wanted to say thank you for your help, the ankle feels so much better. I'm into summer training now and it's great. I got a lot more freedom in the ankle than I did before I got injured, so I am really happy.

Katherine Watkins is an excellent physiotherapist. She knows what she is talking about, and solved my 6-month-old knee problem in 3 sessions. She focused on giving me targeted exercises so I could resolve the problem myself, instead of doing loads of manual therapy and dragging out the treatment regime. She fully reviewed the exercises each session to make sure they were still appropriate, and tweaked/added to the treatment plan along the way. I found this approach very helpful and effective. I would definitely recommend her to anybody for any condition.
Katherine is a superb physio. Firstly the diagnosis is detailed and the examination of the problem area is not taken in isolation but with an understanding of the whole body interaction. For my problem, an incorrectly tracking knee cap, a set of exercises were initially devised and then refined as treatment progressed. This lead to a cure of the problem but also a fix of the cause (a muscle in-balance in the leg). I totally recommend Katherine as a physiotherapist.
I had a long term problem with neck and shoulder, and had been to several physios. This physio was different, much more interactive with my particular difficulties; and adapting to progress when it started. The treatment was more based on exercises for me to do at home, rather than on the table treatment. Monitoring and adapting the exercises was crucial. My progress has been remarkable. A truly exceptional physio.
