High value treatments. An understanding. A plan

Welcome to James Davis Physiotherapy, an Essex physiotherapist recognised for world-leading treatments and a genuine patient-focused approach. My committment is to give you an understanding of your problem and provide high value treatments, and a plan for you to self-manage at home. This will help you get better faster and return you back to moving normally. I avoid giving low value treatments such as spinal manipulation, use of electrical machines, acupuncture and massage which have been proved to be ineffective.

I have over 33 years' clinical experience  and specialist expertise in treating severe debilitating low back and neck pains and sports injuries. I treat shoulder, elbow and wrist injuries, knee and ankle pains and pregnancy-related back and pelvic pains in patients of all ages ranging from school children to elderly patients, including professional sports men and women (see Sporting History). I have a long tradition of helping people from all walks of life in Chelmsford, Essex and the home counties, get back to normal life, having been empowered to resolve their problems with our help and guidance.

James has not only treated the pain and discomfort I was suffering with, but has also helped me to understand how posture and day to day activities can affect the body. When I regularly maintain the exercises and correct postures I have much less discomfort and pain. His help has been excellent and I would […]

Hi James, I ran the Greater Manchester Marathon, with no pain from the issues I visited you with initially. Painful outer left knee – buttock pain and lower hamstring pulling pain. My time of 4:09 was not what I was hoping for, unfortunately I found myself out on my feet from around 18 miles – […]

After a cricket shoulder injury from last season, it seemed that an operation was needed. After my first visit to see James he identified a key reason why the pain still existed due to ‘POSTURE’ during working at a desk with the computer for many hours in the day & driving position. James indicated that […]

Tremendous help and the relief I had been suffering with back pain for many years, trying NHS Physio, chiropractors etc. where I started to finally give up and accept the pain. However in December 15 it got much worse to the degree that it hurt to stand or sit or doing anything and was affecting […]

Excellent in every way. Understanding the problem specific to my individual issues and the advice and confidence given to get on with a good quality of life is commendable.

I can’t recommend James highly enough. He managed to treat and help me manage pain which I had been suffering for a long time and other health professionals mis-diagnosed. Very good physiotherapist.

After struggling with getting help from my GP and trying to get an appointment with an NHS Physiotherapist I opted for trying James’ practice. From the first session James was able to correctly identify my problems and give me good advice for managing my injuries, this was a surprise for me – he pinpointed the […]

James is a brilliant physiotherapist, I can’t thank him enough for the caring and professional service he provides. I came into see James for the first time in a lot of pain with my neck, shoulder, and arm and was on some very strong pain killers, given to me by my local GP. I came […]

I would recommend James to anyone, He basically got me able to walk again after a nasty accident during an ice staking lesson! After months of the NHS being no help at all, I referred myself to James from a recommendation. James was thorough with explaining the problem and the exercises for me to do […]
