I have been treated by Dr Ian Horsely post shoulder stability surgery and I have been extremely happy with his in-depth knowledge and experience in the field. I had complete confidence in him due to his reputation and this was completely backed up with my experience. My recovery has been swift and thorough thanks to following Ian’s rehab plan and hands on treatment. He’s also a top bloke.

I have been getting treatment from Ian since 2011 and he is the main reason

why I stayed fit and healthy during the 2012 season which allowed me to win double bronze in the London Paralympic Games! Since 2012 I have had numerous injury problems including ankle, hip and stomach issues.

Ian has been with me every step of the way nursing me back to full fitness and keeping the rehab sessions fun and motivating. I would highly recommend Ian to each and everyone and from my personal experience he is the best physio I have ever seen!

MG- Yoga and Pilates Teacher

Many years ago, I needed help with my left shoulder. Misdiagnosed by the NHS I needed expert help and came to see Dr Ian Horsley, who was recommend to be by a friend and it was the best move I ever made! Not only had I found someone who knows everything possible about the body but can help me with my strange, abnormal muscle formation. I was diagnosed by Ian with shoulder and scapular dyskinesis type 3, meaning I couldn’t lift my arm without my shoulder almost sliding out of its socket! With the help of Ian and his amazing skills I was cured in no time, helping me so much that I could return to work as a Yoga and Pilates studio owner/teacher for the public and NHS. Since then Ian has put my hips and pelvis back in place, along with a few herniated disks ans so much more. If I didn’t ave Ian and his team I do feel that I would have given up and relied on walking sticks or even a wheelchair to get about. I cannot recommend Back In Action enough… It is honestly the best move you’ll ever make!

Being a professional cyclist, crashes and injury’s are unfortunately common and all part of the job. Its how you over come these that is important. I have worked very closed with Dr Ian Horsley over the last number of years, rehabbing me from knee and shoulder injuries. When these injuries do happen I know that I am in very good hands with his professionalism and forward thinking, I am always confident that I will be back on the bike as fast and strong as possible.

Picture on the left is September 2014 and picture on the right is September 2015. In March 2015 I had a full pec major rupture at the tendon which had to be reattached in surgery 2 weeks later. So the picture on the right is 5 months post surgery. I know the expression ‘couldn’t do it without him/her’ gets thrown around a lot BUT I literally would not have done this show had I not been referred to Dr. Ian Horsley, he shaved 6 weeks off my recovery from my surgery. He got my range of motion back quick and gave me the confidence to start rebuilding in the gym less than 8 weeks post surgery. So like I said I would not have competed without his help!! Although I believe he has some experience in torture methods he is fantastic!

I literally couldn’t have recovered at the speed I did with such vast improvements to my physique with out Ian’s rehab. I believe my surgeon said because of the tailored rehab provided by Ian I was signed off 7 weeks earlier than I should have been!!

Without the treatment I received from Ian, I can safely say that competing at London 2012’s Paralympics may not have been possible! 6 months before the Games I was diagnosed with a SLAP tear in my right shoulder, but with a fantastic pre-habilitation programme which was devised and overseen by Ian, I was able to realise my dream of representing Great Britain at a Paralympic Games. Ian is undeniably a visionary, and his unquestionable knowledge of the shoulder and its mechanics is second to none. I can’t thank Ian enough and would (and have!!) highly recommend him for any shoulder related issues no matter how big or small.

I have been receiving treatments from Ian and his team for over 10 years now and I have always received a 1st class and professional service.

I have been doing pole vault for 4 years and the later 2 years I have spent working alongside Ian Horsley at the English Institute of Sport in Manchester. Pole Vaulting is very demanding on many different parts of the body, and I was very lucky to have such a patient, multi- knowledgeable physiotherapist helping me throughout 2011 and most important 2012 Olympic year.

Holly Bleasdale – British Olympic Pole Vaulter A very professional physio, of whom I would trust and recommend for any future treatments both for myself and others. Ian was a vital part of my team and I owe him great thanks for keeping me in one piece to allow me to fulfil my dream of representing Great Britain in an Olympic Games.

When I got injured I went to Back in Action. I felt immediately calmed by the friendly yet professional atmosphere there. The treatment I received was great and I saw results even from the first consultation which meant I wasted no time getting back into training.

I have been a patient of Ian’s now for over ten years and I wouldn’t see any other physio. Time after time Ian has enabled me to fully recover from injury and return to competing, even at times when I thought there was no going back. Ian helped me to go on to win the British Championships after I ruptured the ligaments in my ankle just days before the competition. He is a true miracle worker! Furthermore, Ian goes to all lengths at Back in Action to support his patients in every way he can and his friendly, welcoming approach never goes unnoticed. I know I can always count on Ian to get me back to full strength and I am extremely grateful for his support and assistance over the years

Ian has been treating me on and off for about 3 years now. I’ve visited his clinic on several occasions and I think it’s brilliant. I have been struggling with an on going hip injury for about 5 years now and with the help and support of Ian and his staff at back-in-action I’ve managed to compete in the 2010 Commonwealth Games in Delhi and also I fulfilled my dream in representing Team GB at the 2012 London Olympic Games

Laura Massaro - Professional Squash Player, World Ranked Number 2, British and European Number 1,2013 Squash Player of the Year and World Squash Champion 2014

have been having treatment from Ian through the EIS North-West for the past few years. He has got me out of some sticky situations where it has been touch and go on me making it to my next ranking squash event. He stays calm and is clear thinking which is very settling to know and have as an athlete. He is always very thorough in our treatments and I am told of the problem and given a clear plan of action which I feel is exactly what I need for my personality.

Without Ian’s expertise, calmness and rehab programmes I would not have taken part in many of my squash events and I feel it would have been far more likely I would have had several re occurrences of niggling injuries.

I would highly recommend Back in Action and Ian for any physio needs whether you are a professional athlete or amateur.

Ian treated me in conjunction with the medical team at Barnsley football club for a dislocated shoulder. Ian was recommended to me by the physiotherapist at Barnsley football club because of Ian’s extensive research and knowledge in shoulder injuries. Also, with his sporting background we felt this would aid my speedy recovery. After several consultations and treatments I was able to return to football with no problems. Thanks Ian.

The Back in Action Clinic was an added bonus in my Olympic preparation. When visiting family and friends in Doncaster, I was still able to get World Class treatment when I was away from my national Centre in Manchester. An ACL, knee reconstruction, wasn’t going to stop me and Back in Action, definitely helped towards my dreams of representing my Country at London 2012.

Ian was recommended to me and I can honestly say what a ‘Gem’ find. I had a rib issue that needed work before one of my fights and Ian identified what the issue was, and also found a solution in how I could rectify the problem long term. Ian was very knowledgeable and had an easy going demeanor, which made me open up to him and relax. Highly recommended…

I am a heptathlete, which can be very demanding on the body, over the years Ian has looked after me in the rehabilitation and prevention of injury. I suffered from patella tendonapathy in 2010, with Ian’s help and guidance I fully recovered from my knee procedure, coming back stronger and was able to follow my dreams of competing in the 2012 Olympic Games. Ian is very precise, patient and professional. I trust and recommend him completely.

Linda Wales- Montaineer

Ian Horsley at Back in Action has been my physiotherapist for a year now following an accident on my shoulder in 2013. From my initial meeting with him right through to the present time he’s been professional, supportive, informative and generally my super hero. I’m a rock and high altitude mountain climber so to not be able to use a shoulder is unimaginable and I was devastated when I knew it was pretty serious. But following the operation with my surgeon, who Ian recommended, I have spent months with Ian regaining strength and movement and it’s so strong now that I can climb again. I have my surgeon and Ian to thank for this miracle and I am continuing my sessions with Ian to ensure my shoulder moves forward and not back. If anything now I feel like I have a bionic shoulder and continue to soak up every ounce of information and advice that Ian shares with me. I don’t foresee a time in the future when Ian’s not part of my training and with so many challenges ahead, it’s good to have someone I trust 100% on the team. Thanks for everything Ian, I really appreciate it.

As a masters athlete, I always find Ian to be very knowledgable and able to swiftly and accurately diagnose conditions/injuries. His wealth of experience enables him to deliver excellent and effective treatment/rehabilitation plans. I would have no hesitation in recommending Ian for sporting and non sporting conditions.

I can’t thank Ian enough for finding the root cause of my chronically unstable left ankle. After years of playing sport at a good level and accumulating low grade injuries, my left ankle was stopping me maintaining a reasonable level of running fitness. Ian dealt with the deeper underlying issues rather than the presenting superficial symptoms, which was different to all previous clinicians I have seen. I can now run comfortably, with minimal aftermath, and am delighted.

I am lucky enough to live locally to the Back in Action clinic and have been receiving treatment from Ian for around 4 years after a recommendation. Ian diagnosed a rotor cuff injury even when MRI scans didn’t pick up the problem. Because of this I was able to have an operation and can now ride pain free. With Ian helping me with rehabilitation after a couple of operations I have been able to get on my bike quickly with no reoccurring problems. I see Ian with any injury I trust him and the guys at Back in Action to get a diagnosis and have me back on my bike as soon as possible.

Over quite a few years now Ian’s expertise, treatment and advice has help to managed all my niggles and ongoing conditions. Keeping them in check has enabled me to perform, continually, at as high a level as possible with some great personal & team results along the way. I would highly recommend that anyone with a injury or issue book an appointment with Ian.
