What our clients say about us

I tried Hogan and Mitchell Physiotherapy after multiple visits to my work place Health Centre and NHS physios. I had suffered repeat lower back pain problems for years and had began to accept that the damage was permanent. At the initial assessment, Ross Mitchell gave me an accurate diagnosis with a clear indication of the true root cause. From this point onwards the remedial work has removed all aches and pains (in a very short space of time) and made me conscious of posture and lift technique. I now have the confidence to take on heavy manual tasks without concern. I have to say that this has been the most comprehensive and professional services I have ever come across. M Rawles

Just a thank you for the treatment I received over the past three months. After the surgery in my shoulder, I had very significant pain and very limited movement with no strength in my arm. I had tried other physiotherapists in the past and found them to be limited to heat pads and a bit of a “rub & massage” type of treatment with no real benefits. They also would recommend several costly session per week and after several weeks I would not be any better. However the treatment I received from Hogan & Mitchell was different from anything I had received in the past. You guys treated the injury scientifically and explained all the inner workings of the joint and cause of pain / limited movement before you even attempted treatment – I loved this as I’m an consulting engineer and appreciated the technical application. You then recommended weekly sessions and included specific exercises and treatments even providing me with specifics home exercises that did not involve expensive equipment. I was treated as a professional by a professional! After just 6 weeks, I’m pain free and sleeping on the shoulder with full movement. Thanks for the professional service, W Wilson

I started physiotherapy with Simon after suffering months of lower back pain and severe coccyx pain. After assessing my movement and strength he was able to quickly pinpoint the issue. He recommended several exercises, habit changes and a treatment plan to strengthen my core, back and legs. At each session I made progress and after finishing my treatment I am close to pain free for the first time in over a year, and feel confident I can keep going with the progress made so far. I have also been attending Simon’s pilates sessions which are helping to maintain the strength I have gained and help keep my back healthy. I have found Simon to be very friendly, knowledgeable and professional, and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Hogan and Mitchell to anyone requiring physiotherapy or wishing to attend pilates classes.

I've visited Simon at Hogan & Mitchell twice now and have been very impressed. I had a consultation that lasted an hour where he analysed the way I moved, my injury etc and I felt a thorough diagnosis was made with good advice on what to do to speed my recovery. My recovery has worked really well and according to the timescales he predicted. He also did not do, what I hate about other physios, which is treating two people at once and just sticking you on an ultrasound machine whilst they visit the other person. He also didn't try and convince me I needed a course of treatment at £40 a go which I've had with other physios as he said that I should be fine if I followed the prescribed exercises but to come back if I needed it. Simon also followed up with a phone call to check how I was doing which was much appreciated.read more

I played competitive sports in my 20’s and have been treated by various Physios during this time.I can confidently say Hogan and Mitchell are a very good practice.Over the last 3 years I have been treated by Simon on several occassions, as well as attend his group pilate classes, and he is very good at what he does.Their online booking system makes it very easy to arrange an appointment.read more

Very good Practice, friendly but also professional. I followed up a consultation and joined a Pilates class.If you have any issues relating to sore backs and stiffness this is the practice to use. I have tried others in Macclesfield and have not had the same help that I have had from Simon and Ross.read more

Not only has Simon fixed my IT band injury, he has also transformed the way I run and I have enjoyed plenty of pain free runs over the festive period. I'd not hesitate to go back if I had any further problems.read more

Was in lower back pain when went to Hogan & Mitchell but within a few days of advised routines, became easier and within 2 weeks was normal. Detailed understanding and explanations of the problem and treatment enabled rapid recovery and return to active, pain free activities. Highly recommended.read more

I have suffered from neck and shoulder pain for many years and always found even simple gardening jobs almost impossible due to the resulting pain, stiffness and discomfort. However, since starting Simon's Pilates class I am virtually pain free. This was highlighted to me recently when I dug out heavy clay soil and laid patio bricks without any repercussions, something which would not have happened a year ago.Thanks to Pilates ( & Simon) I can now carry on doing jobs which had become impossible.read more

I have recently completed a 10 week strength and conditioning programme with Simon, after a long period of suffering aches, pains, niggles and general lethargy. I highly recommend Simon Hogan to any runners out there who have struggled with injury or want to push themselves to the next level.Simon listened to the struggles I had been experiencing in my running and explained the best course of action to get me back to where I wanted to be.The programme was tailored to my needs and has been extremely effective. I feel much stronger and more confident to push myself harder during running.Thank you Simon - I'm sure that new PBs will follow shortly!Phil.read more

I originally went to Hogan & Mitchell as my right shoulder was stiffening up and I was in pain. I had an initial 1hour consultation with Ross Mitchell to ascertain whether I had a frozen shoulder as I felt I had all the symptoms of such as I’d had a frozen left shoulder some years ago. Ross was very welcoming and reassuring that he was there to help and after an examination of my range of movement determined a course of action to confirm whether it was a frozen shoulder or not (which after a number of sessions it was). What I was most impressed with was that Ross genuinely cared about my overall health and well-being. He felt he could give me some advice in another area I needed to address namely my weight. He showed a genuine interest in me, my past lifestyle, what I tried before and what had worked and what hadn’t. He definately motivated me to address my weight and introduced me to not a faddy diet but a change of lifestle regime built around the Low Carb High Fat (LCHF) principles. That initial consultation went on for over 2 hours because it needed to and by the end I felt fully enlightened. Over the next 3 sessions whilst monitoring the progress of my frozen shoulder we used the time to discuss the health regime. Ross has provided me a lot of information, links, recipes and closed off with good reasons all the ‘excuses’ I was using not to address my weight. I’m delighted to say that I started 11 days ago and I’ve already lost 18lbs which I no longer have to carry around!Ross I’d like to thank you for genuinely caring and going beyond the bounds of my shoulder which brought me too you. It may be your character and skill set but I assure you in today’s society it is a rare trait to talk to a complete stranger, gain their confidence so quickly and guide them onto a new path you knew would work. Your continued support is very much appreciated, thanks!read more

Simon really helped me with some sharp knee pain I was having through running - all through lack of stability and strength from my hips to my knees (contrary to just having ‘short’ quads which was what I had previously been told). The exercises I was given really helped.read more

I came along to see Ross @ Hogan & Mitchell as a runner with a problem of worsening 'plantar fasciitis'. From arriving I could sense that my experience was going to be 'different' - Ross and I spent a lot of time talking about why I was having the problem and what I needed to do (change) to help improve the situation. As a runner the last thing I wanted was to stop running and Ross helped me to continue training whilst undertaking a program of strength and resistance work at the gym. Ross promised no 'quick fix' but after several weeks the results are there - I now understand more about the issue and feel empowered to resolve it myself. This was definitely a different experience but one I strongly recommend.read more

Ross was amazing in helping me overcome a persistent injury that had plagued me for months, one that many other therapists had been struggled to help with. He's extremely thorough and enthusiastic when it comes to getting to the root of the problem, and was brilliant in educating me and keeping me informed every step of the way through the process, which was so crucial and appreciated. Would highly recommend!read more

Fantastic in all regards. I saw Ross with patellar tendonitis. I’d hurt it several times through snowboarding and self-defence classes, and as a result had sharp pain and no confidence in the joint. Couldn’t negotiate stairs properly or even carry my kids to bed. Ross explained the issue and how to think about it differently. He created a gym routine for me that I swear lasted no longer than 30 mins and the results have bomb-proofed my knees. It used to feel as though my knees were jarring when I tried to do any sort of exercise. A few months later I’m now running 5-10K with ease.read more

Following a knee fracture during the height of the COVID-19 I felt I needed some extra support in managing my rehabilitation. Simon Hogan was highly recommended by a family member and I am very grateful I took their advice! Simon spent time listening and then helped me understand how to move forward both with exercise and confidence. I think I needed both in equal measures! I know my progress is down to the professional help and motivation received at Hogan and Mitchell, thank you.read more

I went to see Ross with a lot of seemingly random joint pain following the birth of my son. He was incredibly thorough in the initial appointment and went into loads of detail explaining why things were hurting in the way they were as well as explaining what the exercises he was giving me would do to help. The exercises are helping massively and the fact I have a much greater understanding of why the injuries were there in the first place as well as how to heal them is great. Thank you!read more

I have had two problems with my back int he last five years. On both occasions I had limited movement in my back. On this latest occasion. I could not lie down without being in pain and by the end of the day after standing and sitting all day i was in a lot of pain and discomfort, as well.. Within four weeks Simon had my back working and all my movement has returned and i now have no problem sleeping or any pain or discomfort at the end of the day. I would recommend him and I would not hesitate to see him, if any other issues arise. Thank you Simon.read more

Excellent professional service from start to finish. Ross provided no nonsense advice and diagnosis. When imaging and a specialist consultant was required he referred me to one of the best in the country. After surgery Ross helped me get back out and running again. It wasn't all physical, Ross also helped on the mental side too, even providing some useful relationship coaching to ensure my recovery was successful in balance with family commitments. Will genuinely miss my appointments now I'm better!read more

Thanks so much to Simon - I had a consultation which was incredibly useful, he took the time to listen and gave me some great next steps. He also followed up 3 and 6 months afterwards to check in, which kept me on track with the exercises he gave. Highly recommend!read more

I visited hogan and Mitchell on my husband’s recommendation. He’d visited with a long standing cycling injury which they were able to finally successfully pinpoint and provide great advice for. He then quickly recovered due to this great diagnosis and advice and was able to complete a PB on his key race. I was delighted with my experience with Simon and Ross - I visited before a big fell race that I’d been training for for ages, due to an ankle injury. Simon was able to help me really quickly and explained exactly what the injury was and what practically I could do about it - without stopping running/cancelling my event. I would definitely return and can highly recommend them - much appreciated :).read more
