I want to express my gratitude to Darren at ProActive Physio. His overall interest in what he does, it seems to me he... enjoys his career... His care in taking time to access the presenting physical problem, his line of questioning for clarification, taking time to point out on the wall charts where the problem area presents, his care in demonstrating how exercises be done correctly and the goals he sets to enable recovery.... His positivity is life-giving.It makes going to Physio a positive experience leading to an active and enjoyable life again.Thank you more

Had to get physio on my ankle after a second operation on it. Wanted to ensure I went to a highly recommended Physio... and was recommended ProActive Physio by my GP.Katy was my Physio and from the get go I knew I was in capable hands. Katy gave me a detailed physio plan from the start. She never pushed me but constantly encouraged me to keep up my physio and apply it on a daily basis.My recovery was slow initially, but Katy had said it would take time. Even during COVID she did zoom calls and continued to monitor my process. With the help of ProActive Physio namely Katy, I was able return to work quicker than expected and made a great recovery.CANNOT RECOMMENDED PROACTIVE PHYSIO ENOUGH. HIGHLY more

Our Story

Dr Michelle Biggins opened ProActive Physio in 2010. Michelle experienced chronic low back pain and sciatica in her teenage years. She struggled to continue to play sports and was inspired to become a chartered physiotherapist to help others in similar situations. Read about her back pain journey here.

She has built a fantastic team of chartered physios; Darren Flannery (who specialises in sports physiotherapy, chronic back pain and knee pain) and Margaret O’Connor (expert in chronic pain, low back pain, arthritis and vertigo)
