Chris is a wizard! Say to say he has the eye of an eagle when it comes to movement problems! He really cares for his clients and always makes sure the problem is resolved as effectively and efficiently as possible!

I can't praise Chris enough! I went to him with knee and hip problems which were stopping me from running, and he put an incredible amount of thought and effort into discovering what was causing the issues - which was far from straightforward. His knowledge is impressive, and he found that there were several other issues that were actually causing the pain. He's also great to work with, and has a good sense of humour, which made the sessions enjoyable as well as beneficial. I'm very happy to report that I'm now back running again and gradually getting back to the speed and mileage I used to do. I highly recommend him - I've had physio and sports massages in the past, but nothing else has really helped like these sessions. Thank you so much Chris - I know it wouldn't have happened without you!

Chris continues to develop his expertise, in fact a would describe him as being at the leading edge of NKT. He recently treated me for an historical problem using his new skills and ever increasing experience which resulted in a very positive outcome for me. The important thing for me is that as his business grows he retains those very important values and ethos that have always made him stand out.
A great young man doing some terrific work. Thanks again Chris.

I can not recommend Chris enough - I visited him with very little movement in my shoulder and tremendous pain. Within 2 visits he had my arm movement back and pain almost gone. His knowledge and expertise had actually isolated the problem to my neck and worked on my neck muscles to bring instant relief. You will be in a safe pair of hands.

Thank you. For the first time in 2 years, I have no pain in my hip.
Not even a little niggle. All the sports massage therapists and
physios I've seen have years and years of experience, but none of them
managed to get to the bottom of the problem - I genuinely thought it
was something I would have to live with for life. By taking a little
time to take a full history, you identified a weak ankle I didn't even
know I had, and worked through the implications of that and the hotch
potch of seemingly unconnected symptoms it was causing. I hadn't
realised how off balance I was. It's hard to describe how I feel -
not only has my pain gone, but I feel solidly connected to the ground
with both feet. I would not hesitate to recommend Chris, and I can't
believe what a difference a one hour long session has made. I am a convert to neurokinetic therapy!

Chris helped me with my knee problem, in just 2 sessions the issue was resolved. His knowledge of the body and his ability to diagnose and fix an issue is fantastic. Thanks Chris
Chris, at AD Fitness, is one of the best PT and physios that I've ever had the pleasure of knowing. He is able to pinpoint, with precision, what is holding you back physically & mentally whilst remedying it there and then with you walking away with an action plan to prevent it from reoccurring.
One recent example was that, despite my playing rugby 5/6 times a week for over an hour a time, my stamina & endurance was declining & visibly getting worse, with myself not even being able to run for longer than a minute without having to stop for 5 minutes because I felt I couldn't breath & my muscles weren't getting any oxygen. I went to Chris because I knew it was bound to be something inside me not quite working right & Chris has set me right so many times before.
Within an hour Chris had pinpointed that my Diaphragm had "jacked up" due to my pelvic floor acting up, and had me do a few simple breathing exercises and stretches to reactivate my inactive muscles. Since I've been able to play a full game to completion just by following his advice to keep those muscles active & functioning properly.
I would thoroughly recommend Chris for both his PT & his NKT sessions. If I were to give a reason why you should book a visit with Chris is because he is able to point out AND remedy any issues or muscle inactivity that you might have that have hindered your fitness in the past, i.e. my diaphragm!
Chris is very welcoming and patient and is more than willing to go the extra mile to ensure you leave happy and content, not only with your body feeling better, but also with the knowledge to ensure your body stays functioning as it should.

In the past 8 months, my weight soared and my fitness suffered. This was all down to an underactive thyroid.
Chris was my first thought to rid me of this weight. During my appointment, instead of a good work out, he spoke to me about a healthy eating plan and taught me how to help my thyroid with sound dietary advice. I learnt so much from him, he has an uncanny natural knack of knowing just what is right for you.
I thought I ate healthily and was pleasantly surprised to hear what he had to say, then realised that in fact, I ate quite badly. I am so glad to have learned this, and have noticed a big difference in my energy levels since changing my eating habits.
Further to this, he noticed that I had a bad knee. He explained that this was due to my back being misaligned! (I thought it was because I am fat) A quick re-alignment procedure & the pain had gone; it was like when you take tight shoes off after a day of shopping.
Chris is a patient, approachable, professional consultant and makes you feel welcome. He is easy to speak to and trustworthy. If you want a reliable and positive approach to health and fitness, I highly recommend Chris Adams before you think about going on a diet or joining a gym class

I went to see Chris following a difficult birth as I had back and hip pain. He managed to find the source of the problem and ease some of the main problem straightaway. He advised on a few regular exercises and I am feeling so much better now - Would not hesitate to recommend Chris, you don't have to be a sportsperson to benefit from his skills
