What are people saying?
Towards the end of the 2019 triathlon race season, I began noticing a dull ache beneath my second/third metatarsal of my left foot. Foolishly I continued training and completed two further races, where the latter race was cut short due to the pain in my foot. I sought the advice of Nick Knight through a remote consultation after a recommendation from another sports injury professional.
Despite living 200 miles away at the time, Nick was happy to begin a remote consultation programme. I was very impressed with Nick’s dedication and drive to ensure I had a thorough and accurate diagnosis. Despite never visiting his clinic in person, Nick was still able to confidently diagnose a plantar plate tear through several remote consultations. I was sent a pair of orthotics in the post and ensued a comprehensive and progressive rehabilitation programme designed by NK active’s Exercise Rehabilitation Instructor Natalie. They both continued to assist and monitor my rehabilitation and I progressed from barely being able to walk, back to full running pain free. I am now running better than I ever have with no repercussions of the plantar plate tear.
I would happily and wholeheartedly recommend the services provided by NK Active.

I had heard good things about this clinic, but as we live a long way from it, I made use of the virtual appointment facility after my teenage son injured his foot and it wasn’t resolving. The service was easy to use, and Nick was soon able to reach a diagnosis after some indepth questioning and remote assessments. His knowledge was extensive and full use of the available technology used by Nick ensured that my son and I understood the problem and the specific exercise programme required to resolve it. Highly recommend this great virtual service wherever you are in the UK or even the World. Thank you Nick.

During a Global health emergency is not a great time to sustain an ankle injury! However there turned out to be an excellent way to have my problem assessed and a programme of rehab set up, whilst staying at home to save lives!
I would not hesitate to recommend the video consultation from NK active. The process is easy to arrange and understand. Nick is very friendly and knows his stuff!
The rehab programme was quickly delivered to my email and the equipment I needed for this was delivered speedily too.
Looking forward to our follow up consultation to assess my progress.
Thank you NK Active for helping me out!
