Patients Testimonials


Mark Lewis (Former Cardiff Blues player & keen cyclist & golfer.)

"Having tried numerous avenues to fix my back issues, I contacted Dyfri and his team to see if they could diagnose it and get me back on my feet.

After the 1st session Amy had diagnosed my problems and put me on a course of exercises that progressively improved my back problems until they were non-existent within 4 weeks. Amy was easily contactable during that time via emails and the app and she continues to drop me emails even after my sessions have finished."


I can’t rate nor recommend PPP enough - I’m back to cycling and golfing with no pain.


Thanks PPP - 5 Stars


Rob Gaunt (Professional Tennis Coach)

"Having suffered a complete ACL rupture in 2020, Dyfri and Amy have taken my rehabilitation to the next step in preparing me for a return to full fitness and coaching. Dyfri’s expertise and personable nature, guided by his knowledge and understanding made me feel in really safe hands. On regaining movement and strength, I was encouraged to try out sessions with Amy on the reformer bed. These have been fun, challenging but most importantly rewarding. Not only have PPP helped me on my journey back to full fitness, but I have learnt so much more along the way. It also helps that they are both very easy to get along with! Thank you."


Chris Corcoran from Cardiff

“I have often recommended PPP since my experience there. Dyfri was thorough, conscientious and got excellent results.”


Richard Thomas from Penarth

“My name is Richard Thomas and I am now 60 years of age and going strong thanks to Dyfri Owen. He’s fixed my elbow, back, heel, shoulder, knee and most of my body parts.
I would highly recommend him.“


Christina Rees (MP & LLB JP Barrister at Law from Porthcawl Former Development Officer and National Coach, Squash Wales)

“Some four years ago I injured my back playing squash. I had never suffered with back problems and was naïve enough to believe that the excruciating pain I was suffering would be cured by visiting any physiotherapist. I tried five physiotherapists over a period of twelve very painful debilitating months and had resigned myself to a painful existence when a friend recommended Dyfri. I nearly didn’t make that appointment, but am so grateful that I did.

Dyfri discovers the cause of the problem through meticulous attention to detailed analysis. The previous practitioners had merely treated the symptoms. I was impressed by his professionalism and was confident that he would make it possible for me to manage my pain and continue with a good quality of life. I have not been disappointed. Following Dyfri’s treatment, I have been able to continue to play and coach squash, when I thought that my squash days were over.

In my role as National Coach I am responsible for players aged eight years and above. Squash is a hard sport and I have referred many injured players to Dyfri over the past four years. Some have suffered from difficult recurring injuries, but every player Dyfri has treated has been able to return to play in the Squash Wales structure. I have also referred friends of mine who suffer from various ailments and all are in a better physical condition thanks to Dyfri.”


Joan Crabtree from Dinas Powys

"I’ve been a client of Penarth Physiotherapy Practice receiving treatment for chronic back problems. I’ve had a combination of physiotherapy and acupuncture and have been given helpful advice on appropriate mobility exercises. The professionalism, treatment and continuing care is of the highest standard. My treatment has been very successful in helping me to maintain a high degree of mobility and avoid an immediate need for surgery. I’ve been shown great respect, kindness and understanding and time allocation at appointments has always been generous. The facilities are excellent and comfortable and the ambience calming. I recommend Penarth physiotherapy Physiotherapy practice unreservedly.”


Ian W from Cardiff

“PPP have effectively helped me recover from several sports related injuries and resume doing the sports I enjoy. Their help has been invaluable for me and has helped me quickly recover from injuries and to stay fit and well. PPP have also helped me develop my core stability and avoid other injuries. “


Julia Bowkett from Newport

“I have been attending the Penarth Physiotherapy Practice both pre and post-operatively for a back injury that I sustained from playing sport. I was treated by Dyfri Owen from the start of my injury and now I wouldn’t go to any other physiotherapist. Dyfri was excellent in understanding my injury and also he ensured that he communicated with my hospital specialist to ensure that my rehabilitation was sufficient in terms of the surgery that I had. Dyfri has been so helpful with the advice he has given me regarding my injury and the surgery which I had. He understood that sport was very important to me and that my long term goal was to go back and play my sport as soon as possible. I feel with Dyfri’s help I managed to rehabilitate and be back playing my sport within five months of having major surgery on my back. Thank you.”


Matthew Williams, Personal Trainer, Cardiff

I have been visiting Penarth Physio Practice for over a year, but each time for a different reason. Every time I have visited I have found their Physios to be very thorough and honest. They never suggests another appointment unless it is necessary and they makes it very clear what is required of me to get the best out of my treatment. I would recommend PPP to anybody, and will continue to use them for all of my physiotherapy needs.”
