I would like to express my utmost gratitude and appreciation to Simon Harland at Replay Physio + Performance. I am a professional squash player and I developed some sharp knee pain back in October 2022, which was diagnosed as a serious Patello Femoral Pain Syndrome Injury. My expectations were so high, and I was not disappointed! From the very beginning of our meeting, Simon exhibited a level of professionalism and expertise that immediately instilled in me a sense of trust. His extensive knowledge and understanding of my condition were evident from the start.
