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 34 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.

Career changing course

Career changing course. Empowers practitioners to empower patients. Simplifying a complex problem

When you were asking your patients it all made sense

From early training I have had a growing sense of dissatisfaction with Physiotherapy as a profession and my ability to understand or explain the underlying mechanisms driving pain for my patients – until today. When you were asking your patients it all made sense

I am completely thrilled.

I am completely thrilled. The course has changed my thinking, my focus and beliefs. Made me start planning what I’m going to do when I return to my clinic – how to transform these skills in practice – how to disseminate this knowledge to my colleagues and change practice. Great journey. Thank you for the […]

Brilliant course. It just makes sense.

Brilliant course. It just makes sense. I have come away after 3 days with a completely different mindset.  I have been on courses before but found it difficult to transfer my learning to the clinic setting but by the case studies this is a lot more transferable

I feel it is going to massively improve my effectiveness

As a newly qualified physio this really does feel like the missing link between treating acute problems/dysfunction effectively, and having the same outcome with those chronic backs. Being shown how to directly address those psychosocial factors, I feel is going to massively improve my effectiveness. It seems clear why we/the health care system find it […]

Really inspirational

Excellent course! Really inspirational. And motivating going back into clinical setting. Will definitely be back.

Food for thought

Great course!  Food for thought. This will definitely impact and change my practice.

Absolutely fantastic

I have learnt so much and Peter presented in a way that was easy to follow. It was very relevant and made it easy to transfer skills into clinical practice. I had gone very much into CBT in my practice and understood all the key themes, but will now increase my focus on just getting […]

The course was the most inspiring course I have attended in 15 years

The course was the most inspiring course I have attended in 15 years. I have attended courses and training with Peter before and always felt immediate benefits to my own clinical work. I have significantly benefitted by observing Pater assess and develop a management plan for multiple patients with complex disorders. By observing Peter listening […]

Fantastic! Amazing! Life changing!

Fantastic! Amazing! Life changing! I have been qualified 7 years and have always struggled with the constraints of treating patients in ‘boxes’. This course/approach will continue to transform totally the way I deal with, examine my patients, chronic or acute. It has already made a significant impact on patients. I have treated since. YF
