Why Choose ASK Physio?
All physiotherapy staff who work at ASK Physio are members of the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy and are also registered with the HCPC (Health and Care Professions Council). Having spent the bulk of our careers working in the NHS, we’ve been able to develop excellent links with local GPs and consultants from both Lister Hospital in Stevenage, Pinehill Hospital in Hitchin and One Hatfield. This means we are very comfortable talking to your doctor if necessary.
At ASK Physio, we love being physiotherapists. We spend longer with our patients on initial consultation than any other local clinic. During each session, we make sure we take the time to answer all your questions and discuss the details of your treatment with you. We receive regular feedback that the experience at ASK Physio is different.
Since opening our doors in June 2013, over 2000 people have chosen ASK Physio. Currently it takes an average of five sessions to treat each patient; some people require more, some less. Between the six physiotherapists at ASK Physio, we have nearly 100 years of clinical experience.
75% of our referrals come from word of mouth recommendation, whether it’s from consultants or GPs (20%) a previous ASK patient (50%) or referrals from other healthcare professionals (10%).
In October 2015, Sarah Kinsella, owner of ASK Physio, won ‘best businesswoman in health and wellness’ at the Best Business Women awards. ASK Physio were also finalists in the ‘best customer service’ category.
In November 2014, ASK Physio won the best new business category at the Hertfordshire Business Awards.
Excellent physiotherapy. I’ve used ASK physio for 4 times now and in each instance, the post-surgical outcome has been excellent and this is primarily due to the physiotherapy and hydro therapy.
I have been seen a few times for acupuncture absolutely brilliant my husband and stepmother also went through my recommendation
It is a fantastic practice, I could not find fault with the service and Gina’s knowledge was impressive. Ask Physio is a massive step up from any physio I have had, really first class. Well done to all involved.
Ask Physio is a well-run practice, with friendly, well qualified staff. Gina is highly experienced in my condition, Fibromyalgia and is incredibly supportive. I get information which helps me in between visits to improve and manage my condition. Finally, standards of hygiene are very good and patient care is a high priority.
Sarah K was a miracle worker – I’d been suffering from a frozen shoulder for 4 months before going to see her and she fixed it like magic in just one session. I went for a second session and the improvement was even better, no pain, full range of motion restored and no further issues over a year and a half later.
First class friendly service
Following the Hydrotherapy sessions I have now taken up swimming as a way of improve my fitness
Your prompt and helpful service helped me when I was in a very painful condition.
So knowledgeable, patient and a willingness to listen. The same sort of injury affects different patients in differing ways, and it is clear that this is recognised by the therapists. My treatment was both beneficial and enjoyable due to the friendliness and professionalism of all I met.
Always found the kind ladies I have consulted very kind, helpful and professional
Excellent caring treatment.
Excellent service thank you very much
Ask Physio is simply brilliant
Have known Ask Physio since before it started as a business and have had the best possible Physio from the team – including hydrotherapy, acupuncture, manipulation etc for me and my family . The team members are hard-working honest people with a very efficient and pleasant manner
I would definitely be in touch with Ask physio at the first sign of a problem. I found the girls were very professional and were able to help me instantly. Sarah explained what she thought was the problem and helped me cope with the problem. I would recommend them to anyone.
Fantastic friendly service, offering bespoke personal treatments, all very professional.
Ask Physio has polite, knowledgeable staff who have helped me with my back problem within a few appointments. 100% happy and definitely be back in the future. Highly recommend.
Thank You, you treated me as a valued individual and certainly not as a customer. Everyone was extremely knowledgeable, patient, efficient and most kind to me . Gina, Sarah and in fact everyone have been quite simply a God send to me.
After suffering with a bad knee for some time and not receiving any treatment via my doctor Sarah diagnosed the problem immediately. She recognised that although the treatment she gave helped it could only be temporary and referred me via the doctor to hospital. A successful operation followed.
I was seen very quickly, treated with kindness and felt confident about the expert care I received.
I have used Ask Physio before my spinal surgery and after … I was made to feal at ease and treated with such kindness and respect with no judgement which is great .. they have provided me with information suitable for my needs to help improve my condition and big big thank you to Sarah Perry .
Had so much help for migraine/neuralgia. Would always use Ask Physio again.
Great service and Sarah was so pleasant ,friendly and helpful
Sarah Kinsella and her Team have helped me in so many ways with their expertise. Hydrotherapy to help flexibility because of my Parkinson’s, acupuncture and deep tissue massage that is ongoing and effective! All the team members always friendly, caring, respectful and so very good at what they do! Thank you all so much.
Overall I was very impressed with my treatment at Ask Physio and I have recommended them to a couple of acquaintances. Many thanks.
Fantastic results after visiting Ask Physio a few months ago. I’d had shoulder pains for many years and after several different types of treatments with no lasting results, Gina successfully diagnosed the issue during the first visit. A couple of treatments later and the problem is finally solved. A very happy customer and I would highly recommend. Well done Ask Physio!
Sarah was extremely efficient and very friendly !!
Excellent treatment felt very at ease and comfortable
Gina worked with me on my ankle rehabilitation and every session was excellent. Any questions and concerns I had, were handled with care no matter what it was. I’m back to full health – and so quickly – only because of Gina and whilst I hope it doesn’t happen again, I would always use Ask Physio for any of my needs. Fantastic team!
Following two sporting injuries, ASK immediately diagnosed the appropriate treatment and with their care and expertise had me back playing very quickly. Thank you to the team!
At a time when I was receiving little or no help from my NHS GP the physios at ASK were a great source of expertise and support. I could not have better or more personal treatment.
My ASK Physio experiences could not be better. I arrived with a condition which they talked me through quickly and clearly – a condition I’d lived with for 20 years and had misunderstood. ASK Physio made a correct and swift diagnosis and advised on simple corrective exercises. I can’t recommend them more highly.
I have just had my first online physio appointment with Sarah Kinsella using Zoom, and I want to say how successful it has been. Whilst we can’t leave our homes, it is a great comfort to be able to have face to face contact. We reviewed my exercises and Sarah demonstrated on the video to me, how to progress them. Technology provides the opportunity to make contact like this and receive advice and encouragement whilst seeing a friendly face! I strongly recommend you give this a try if you cannot leave your home. Sarah made it very easy and it was truly valuable
Today I had a FaceTime appointment with Sarah instead of attending the clinic due to the Coronavirus. I found it extremely beneficial and after discussing my foot and ankle problems, Sarah was able to advise me on what exercises and stretches to do. She sent me photos and videos of each of my exercises afterwards. I fully recommend these FaceTime and video appointments, thank you so much Sarah!
We had an initial consultation booked in for my appointment on Tuesday, but following the recent government announcement, I was contacted by ASK Physio to say that this would now need to be done over a video app, to comply with social distancing rules. I wasn’t sure how effective this would be at first, but Sarah spoke to me for a good 20 minutes, asking me all about my injury and what treatment I had had to date. She then got me to demonstrate some tests over video, she said she was able to tell from the tests that I needed to get stronger in my Glutes, and this was contributing to my hip pain. She showed me some exercise which she then videoed and sent to me, with reps and sets. I was pleasantly surprised how much could be done over video. Other than a few frozen frames, it worked really well!
