Parkinsons Disease

Exercise Rehabilitation

Head To Toe Therapies exercise rehabilitation treatment for Parkinson’s disease will promote physical function by improving mobility and independence with everyday tasks.

Marcus commonly treats individuals with Parkinson’s disease and helps people to walk better, stay active and manage the risk of falling. Exercise rehabilitation treatment will increase muscle strength, joint flexibility and balance.

Benefits of exercise rehab for Parkinson’s disease include:

  • Improving function – rolling, sitting to stand, walking and dressing.
  • Improving transfers.
  • Keeping muscles strong to maximise mobility.
  • Relaxing rigid muscles and joints.
  • Reduce freezing.
  • Increasing energy levels.
  • Promoting smooth and efficient movement.
  • Improving balance.
  • Reducing the risk of falling.
  • Improving posture.
  • Improve the quality of life.

Marcus will assess you at home or refer you to a Neuro Physiotherapy specialist in Parkinson’s that he works closely with should he feel you would benefit more. The assessment will show how Parkinson’s disease is impacting your everyday function. Treatment goals will then be set with you and those close to you to ensure you reach your maximum physical potential. Treatment will be centred on the following:

  • Active and passive range of movement exercises to increase muscle activity, making transfers and walking easier to achieve.
  • Muscle stretching exercises to keep joints flexible.
  • Exercises to help relax rigid muscles and joints to maintain a good posture and make movements smooth and efficient.
  • Balance training.
  • Activities to improve posture and comfort in lying, sitting and standing.
  • Cueing and movement strategies to reduce the effects of freezing.
  • Advice on aids and adaptations to the home to improve safety.

Specialised neurological physiotherapy treatment will help you live the best life possible by improving your physical function and independence with transfers and mobility.

Shoulder Fix

11 December 2023

Having recently fractured the ball in my shoulder socket and badly damaged the soft tissue in my arm, I was recommended by my Physiotherapist to have some treatment with Marcus. I have found his knowledge, and advice on exercises extremely helpful and beneficial, and feel sure that my recovery in gaining full movement again is due to his treatment. I highly recommend him.


Scoliosis neck pain

5 December 2023

I feel the difference after my treatment sessions with Marcus, and I highly recommend him. I suffered from a horribly stiff neck for years due to having scoliosis since childhood, and stretches, exercising, and physio had not worked. From my first appointment with Marcus, the stiffness and discomfort I felt in my neck mostly went away. I felt great relief from the first session, and I have sessions every few months to address my scoliosis aches and pains as well as smaller aches and to maintain health and good mobility in my body. I always come away feeling benefits which are both instantaneous and lasting. Marcus is very professional, and I feel that his studies in Physiotherapy and Osteopathy keep him at the forefront of skills in practice. His approach is very holistic, and he’s shared his ideas and naturopathic beliefs with me regarding nutrition and sleep which have helped me improve my health. Professional and with a warm and positive energy, I look forward to my appointments and feel grateful for the benefits I’ve received from my sessions with him.


Foot Pain

24 November 2023

I must thank Marcus for his guidance in helping me heal my plantar fasciitis! I had been suffering plantar fasciitis pain since February 2023 and had seen two physiotherapists and a massage therapist, but they couldn’t get it gone, even with acupuncture and exercise. I finally got directed to Marcus in September. We discussed toe curls with a tea towel, weighted towel, a tennis ball to mobilise my foot, and a bottle of frozen water to help with the discomfort and swelling! We also worked on toe and calf strength and deep massage of my foot too. Following all his advice and treatments, I found more comfort after each visit. I can now walk without pain or feeling like I have a rock in my shoe. Thank you, Marcus.


Equine Therapy

23 November 2023

In our capacity as an equestrian competition organisation, we frequently encounter the necessity for injury treatments pertaining to both riders and horses within the regions of Buckinghamshire and Hertfordshire.

In an industry that necessitates optimal physical performance from both riders and horses on a consistent basis, the presence of a therapist possessing great talent, knowledge, understanding, and insight becomes imperative to uphold such standards.

The manual technique employed by Marcus, devoid of mechanical assistance, remains important in effectively addressing the physical requirements imposed on our performers and their equine companions. Marcus’s demeanour and methodology have a soothing effect, while his comprehension of the physical demands associated with any sort of performance has significant importance for our group. We have all developed a dependence on and confidence in Marcus’s discernment and care. His ability to provide riders with insight into the causes of injuries, methods of treatment, and strategies for maintaining a state of freedom from injury and discomfort is an invaluable resource for our community.

We are privileged to have an individual of Marcus’s exceptional quality in proximity to our location in Bucks/Herts.


Above and beyond

8 November 2023

My late wife was diagnosed with breast cancer back in February 2021. After much discussion, she decided to have a mastectomy and suffered the consequential cording post-operation. Marcus was introduced through a friend who had had lymph drainage for their legs. On the initial visit, Marcus was most empathetic, kind and considerate and discussed the treatment he could deliver at length. My wife would always report feeling so much better after his treatments, and we hold regard for him as a family. Since her passing in December last, Marcus has continued to keep in touch with me and has pulled me out of many a dark place. He is a true gent and friend. I would have no hesitation in recommending his services to anyone.
