  • When Claire was recommended to me I'd been having knee problems for over two years. The product of her clear diagnostics and advice reassured me and meant that just a few months later I completed a 300 mile hike and ran my first half marathon. It feels wonderful not to worry about my knee every day and that is thanks to Claire.

  • Claire delivers a highly informative and excellent value for money one day  course. Claire’s wealth of experience through her own clinical practice, research and teaching makes this one day course a must on the CPD calendar. A great mixture of relevant theory and practical’s on her one day course has instantly enhanced my own clinical practice to the benefit of my patients. Many Thanks Claire

  • I attended a day course on PFJP with Claire Robertson recently and I found her "hands on approach" extremely helpful and informative. I went back to my daily clinical practice and felt like my missing piece on the knee jigsaw had been found.
