The Results

Liam was thorough in his examination. Certainly worth every penny of the consultation and treatment. No limping, no pain. Thank you so much.

Jenny Baldock

This is a great place, beautiful and the staff are amazing. I saw Liam who fixed my complex foot problem in two appointments – absolutely brilliant. I’d highly recommend anyone to come here.

Leigh-Anne Harper

After 15 years of varying pain in my Plantar Fasciitis, I visited Liam at 8th Element while it was intolerable. After the consultation and scans, Liam recommended cortisone Injections. I had them there and then and have been pain-free since. I’m mobile again. Huge gratitude.

Paul Johnson

Superb - The diagnosis, scans, treatment, information and exercises that were provided to my elite hurdler daughter has meant pain-free performances with her PB’s being smashed. Every athlete should come here…

Amanda Cox

Wow, I’ve been suffering from pain in my knees for over 10 years, and within 50 minutes, I’m now fully aware of what I need to do and what treatment and rehab options are available. I’m excited to start treatment within this amazing clinical setting.
