Having had several physical difficulties (knee and back especially), I would not hesitate to recommend Cathedral Physiotherapy to you. Sarah is such a gifted therapist and her many years of expertise shines through as soon as you even begin discussing your problem with her. She is really friendly and put me at ease straight away. I was also impressed that not only was she able to explain why I was feeling pain in language that I understood, but also able to explain how the treatment she was going to give me would be effective. You will trust her completely! Sure enough, after a few sessions and a clear programme of exercises to carry out at home, I could feel a huge difference. I have tried several practices in the area and, without a doubt, Cathedral Physiotherapy out shines them all.

Sarah has treated me three times over the last couple of years. She is professional, kind, caring and supportive. She has a friendly manner and explained the treatment I needed, answering all my questions clearly. She has great interpersonal skills

I had a couple of back problems a couple of months ago due to a cycling accident and went to Sarah for some help, she did a great job and wasn't bothered about working on me a few times in the week which was great. After a couple of visits it was all fixed and she gave me stretches to do for a month so the pain doesn't return. Sarah's great and well recommended! Thanks Sarah!

I recently visited Cathedral Physiotherapy, which is situated in a convenient city-centre location. I was treated by Sarah Moore. A high standard of care and treatment has resulted in an immediate improvement. I felt confident and reassured by Sarah's expertise, because of her thorough explanation of my condition, and appropriate treatment. I would rate my experience of Cathedral Physiotherapy as outstanding.

I found the whole experience at Cathedral Physiotherapy to be outstanding. Not only is it a picturesque location, easy access from the city centre, and nestled in a magnificent Georgian houses in Exeter’s Southernhay, but the service was exceptional. The clinic was exceptional clean, bright, well laid out and very welcoming. Sarah Moore, the physiotherapist, was simple brilliant. Her caring and professional attitude towards my diagnosis was superb. She made me feel at ease and able to convey my issues to her without any misunderstanding. She took an incredible amount of care and time to ensure she thoroughly understood my concerns. The treatment plan she produced was clear, easy to incorporate into my everyday life; it was like having a consultation from my very own private physiotherapist. If I have any niggles or issues in the future, you can be sure I will be visiting Cathedral Physiotherapy again.

Following years of sport induced back injury/pain and having seen a number of other physiotherapists, I had assumed that back pain was part of my life and to be managed. However Sarah Moore changed all that. Sarah listened fully to my history and made a thorough assessment leading to intervention and exercises. Through Sarah's experience and skill I am now back running and cycling and back pain is a thing of the past. I am thrilled with the professional and genuine care Sarah took while seeing her and I would highly recommend her. Particularly having seen other physios, Sarah was able to deal with a more complex issue resolving it fully.

I am so pleased I found out about Cathedral Physiotherapy in a local magazine. The premises are situated in the picturesque location of Southernhay close to the City Centre with easy parking nearby. They are immaculately presented, newly painted with a large and impressive Consulting/Treatment room.
I saw Sarah Moore on 29th January 2016 with regard to an stubborn pain in my right side. She immediately identified the problem in the facet joint of the vertebrae and treated the area. She gave me exercises to follow and within days the pain had receded and a full recovery made.
I saw her again on 24th February 2016 when she re-examined me and found flexibility had returned to the area. She recommended that I include the exercises given in my dairy gym routine.
Sarah also examined my left shoulder as I suffer from occasional pain on stretching out, due to a long term tear in the rotator cuff. She further examined a slight restriction in my right hip. Additional exercises were given in respect of both, also to be incorporated in my gym routine.
I found Sarah to be enthusiastic, knowledgeable, personable, friendly and professional. She was extremely thorough in the diagnosis and treatment given. What I also liked was that there was no requirement or encouragement to make a further appointment. It was left entirely for me to make that decision. There were no hidden charges either, just two rates clearly explained which was very refreshing to see.
As a regular gym user at The David Lloyd Leisure complex, Sandy Park,
I will now have no hesitation in seeking further help from Sarah Moore of Cathedral Physiotherapy should the need arise. Thank you so much, you were amazing.

I deliver kitchens, bathrooms and bedrooms for a national retailer, in January i sustained a painful injury to my upper back and was introduced to Sarah for assessment. I was diagnosed with sprained ligaments to several areas of my back and ribs.
I was devastated as i was unable to work and this would have a huge impact on my finances. Sarah was fantastic at reassuring me that this was treatable which immediately put my mind at rest, her understanding of my personal situation also gave me great comfort and confidence in her.
I have completed my treatment, for now and am looking forward to returning to work whilst continuing the exercises i've been given.
I would recommend Sarah to anyone seeking relief from pain following injury or as part of rehabilitation,
Not only have i recovered but I have been given the tools and advice to prevent further injury and lead a more productive and healthy lifestyle.
THANK YOU so much Sarah

After deciding to move a piano on my own, I pulled my side badly and could hardly work or sleep. After leaving it 4 days in the hope it would get better, I went to Sarah and I was so glad I did. Sarah has a lovely way about her; she examined me, did some exercises with me and then offered acupuncture. I had never had acupuncture before and I was very nervous but she completely put me at ease. I left with exercises to do and booked another appointment 2 days later. That night I slept so much better and the next day I could move so much more freely. Even though I felt a lot better, I went back the next day as booked and now I am nearly enough back to normal. I couldn't recommended Sarah more highly;she is very caring and certainly knows her stuff. 5 stars well deserved, thank you so much Sarah for sorting me out.

"I am feeling a whole lot better because I received treatment at Cathedral Physiotherapy"
I have had arthritic problems for around ten year, with pain being controlled with medication. Out of the blue having driven for around an hour I experienced pins 'n' needles in both arms (more on right side) which took several days clear. When this happened again the GP suggested physiotherapy. NHS PTs in Exeter are under great pressure and I knew if I wanted to resolve this un-comfortable problem I needed to look elsewhere. This basement clinic is in the centre of town with handy car parks etc close by.
Sarah Moore is very well qualified, but more than this she listens to what you have to say about what might be the problem. The treatment is firm but caring, it is then down to you to listen to your body when doing any exercises Sarah prescribes. I very rarely give reviews but I am feeling a whole lot better because I received treatment at Cathedral Physiotherapy.

"I visited Sarah after having ongoing pain in my shoulder from a sports injury. The treatment focused on correct posture/position and strengthening exercises, along with advice on what specific things I should or shouldn't be doing to aid recovery. I was so impressed with Sarah's willingness to answer my questions and her attention to ensuring that I was doing things right to help in the longer term. In addition to her obvious knowledge and experience, Sarah is a lovely person and makes you feel at ease - highly recommended."

"Pain has decreased steadily with these treatments and movement is now almost back to normal"
I've had treatment on my shoulder following surgery, with the aim of restoring all aspects of the joints functioning. In addition to exercises to restore movement and strength, which I do and home and in a swimming pool, I have received some trigger point manipulation to free up knotty spots in the shoulder, back and neck, all of which were contributing to pain in the shoulder and neck region. Pain has decreased steadily with these treatments and movement is now almost back to normal, after four sessions. I am very satisfied with the diagnosis of my problems and the help and advice received, for what I consider to be a modest rate of payment (£35 for 1/2 hour but sessions frequently have been significantly longer than that.)
My experience of Cathedral Physiotherapy was excellent, with sensitive handling of a complicated shoulder and systematic approach to the various aspects of treatment. I honestly cannot fault the experience I've had from this physiotherapist and would thoroughly recommend her to others."

Sarah Moore has excellent clinical knowledge, long experience, and a scientific approach. I went to her on the recommendation of a friend, with a very sore & crunchy shoulder which was limiting my movement. We had an initial 1 hr session where she methodically examined and tested everything. She diagnosed my problem and prescribed some stretches and exercises to correct my strength and movement. After a week of exercises I feel much much better. I had a follow up appointment where she carried out some massage and manipulation. Sarah has a great ability to understand your anatomy, she can find the unknown muscle or tendon that is tight, in places I was not even aware were sore. It is a testament to her skill and clinical excellence that she can know my body better than me. She gave me an extended set of stretches/exercise and thinks I do not need to come back! I am very impressed, and very pleased. Highly recommended.

I hurt my back trying to get running fit. Sarah made me feel I was in the hands of a professional. Her advice was considered and appropriate to my (older) physical capacities and I felt motivated to follow it. My back is fully recovered and stronger than it was though I intend to continue with the exercises she gave me as I have learned a lot about how my body works from her and understand how to protect myself from injury. She even prompted me to consider that I didn't need her help any longer, before I raised the issue with her - no trying to keep me coming (and paying) when I didn't need it! Excellent.

After being discharged from NHS physio post ankle fracture being unable to do anything but walk, Sarah has really helped me get back into both climbing and running again. She explains what she is doing very well and is lovely and friendly making you feel at ease. Each appointment felt worthwhile and Sarah did not expect weekly visits, which is always great for the student budget! I really like the use of an app for the list of exercises from each session as this allowed me to keep on top and track my progress. I would thoroughly recommend Sarah for any physiotherapy needs.

Sarah offers a very special physiotherapy service which combines excellent assessment, efficient treatment techniques /exercises and a very friendly yet highly professional manner. She is dedicated to her work and has taken a Master's degree to enhance her theoretical perspectives and associated practical practices. Sarah believes that patients should not define themselves by their injuries or health problems and this seems to me to hold much wisdom as clients work towards recovery. I have visited a number of physiotherapists during my life but have never felt that I was experiencing such expert care where 'the whole person' was so well taken into account. Thank you, Sarah!

Having had bilateral resurfacing of patellofemoral joints (both knee caps resurfaced). I had my first session with Sarah one week post operation where at the time i could barely elevate my legs off the floor when lying down and flexion was scarcely beyond 90 degrees. After a total of two months of therapy (initially 2 sessions per week in the clinic and progressing onto one clinic and one Hydrotherapy sessions per week) my flexibility has improved to ''normal'' (after about five weeks). Once full flexibility was achieved i progressed onto more dynamic therapy. The Hydrotherapy has been a massive boost in terms of physical improvement but also psychologically due to the greater stress that can be put on the limbs without the impact of 90 Kg hitting a solid surface. I cannot praise enough the impact that Sarah has had upon my progress in such a relatively short period. I work in an environment that requires physical and dynamic responses by my body and am confident that i will be more than able to return to full time work in the near future. I cannot recommend Sarah enough and her approach to my post operation therapy. Her professionalism and the education that she has given me into the anatomy and physiology of the knees but also the impact upon the rest of the body is second to none. Many Thanks and much appreciation.

I went to see Sarah after being in a lot of pain with my back and ribs. When I got to Sarah, I could hardly breathe in so she got to work right away. It turned out that one of my ribs had twisted which was causing the awful pain. After a 30 minute treatment, the pain had lifted substantially and by the following day, I had almost no pain at all. I was in so much discomfort that I didn't think anything would help. It just goes to show how knowledgeable and brilliant Sarah is. Highly recommended.

It was clear that she really listened to my needs and helped me to achieve my therapy goals. The time spent in the clinic was always beneficial and week on week I could see (and feel) that steady progress was being made. Sarah’s approach to therapy is gentle but also very effective, which left me feeling relaxed and motivated to carry out the exercises I had been given. Cathedral Physiotherapy is easy to get to from the city centre and the clinic is always clean. In addition, my appointments always ran on time and were very reasonably priced. All in all, I felt that the therapy I received was of excellent value and If ever I have any further physio needs I wouldn’t consider anywhere else!

Thank you Sarah. I would certainly recommend your physio service. An issue that had been plaguing me for nearly 3 months was so quickly diagnosed. I doubt that few people look for upper cervical nerve issues in relation to vertigo. Once explained it made perfect sense. Although circumstances made it difficult to attend a further session, the self help exercises gradually produced significant improvement. As all other reviews state, yours is an extremely professional and friendly service with years of knowledge demonstrated and applied within just an hours session. Very impressive expertise but with the holistic and individual touch. I would not hesitate to return again, rather than tolerate a debilitating condition. Thank you

I had experienced worsening knee pain for many years which culminated in a sudden extreme pain, prompting me, finally, to take steps to address the problem. Sarah saw me very quickly and was extremely thorough in taking a history and in physically assessing the issues I was experiencing. The explanation of what was happening and why it was causing the pain was thorough and clear, even to an ignoramus like me. Sarah gave a comprehensive "how and why" explanation of the rationale for how this could be treated with exercise, and the exercises themselves. I found Sarah's knowledge and understanding, and her ability to convey this to me accurately and clearly to be invaluable in motivating the ongoing process of carrying out the exercises. Most importantly, it worked! Following Sarah's advice and exercise programme has made a huge difference and I can only pass on my grateful thanks for fixing so quickly and professionally a problem which was becoming increasingly debilitating. I can wholeheartedly and unreservedly recommend Sarah to anyone experiencing problems like mine. Thank you!

More effective than magic, Sarah is a brilliant physio.
Unless you have Harry Potter skills you cannot beat father time, and with ageing comes creaking and stiffness. If you also get a bit sillier with age, then like me, you go off on ridiculous mountain biking holidays that have the potential to really hurt.
Well lets hope you have a Sarah Moore in your town because she has got got some serious science skills to diagnose and fix you up.
She will do a proper assessment of your body and movement, and then if necessary carry out some hands on squishing and bending, and then send you off with a list of instructions.
This was my 3rd visit (for three different ailments, she prides herself on fixing you first time so you won't have to come back for a do over) and once again Sarah has shown herself to be worth every pound of her experience and skill.
If you don't have a Sarah in your town, be happy that Exeter has good transport links because she is worth the journey. Or move here.

Sarah was recommended to me by another physio who has since changed career. She told me that Sarah had fantastic knowledge and experience having led a team at the Exeter RD&E for many years. Sarah lived up to her reputation and we found her an amazing help. My daughter is 11 years old and had an ankle injury from competitive swimming and was struggling to train. Sarah quickly identified muscle imbalances Jessica had which were causing the area to be prone to injury. Through specific exercises she helped my daughter to regain muscle balance in order to heal and prevent the injury reoccurring. Her advice was invaluable and quickly enabled my daughter to return to her competitive swimming. Sarah also has a lovely, warm personality which put my daughter at ease. We found her to be a fantastic physio. Highly recommended!
