Anthony Watson

England and British & Irish Lions Rugby International 

"James helped me return from a serious foot injury suffered at a pivotal time in my career. I was able to return ahead of schedule through meticulous planning and James’ forward thinking mindset. His commitment to research and gathering information allowed us to make great decisions that bore fruit.

I would highly recommend James as a physiotherapist."

John O'Sullivan

Chemistry & Maths Teacher, Hamilton High School, Bandon

"When I arrived at James' door, my Achilles was a mess. I had severed it twice and as a marathon runner, I could barely walk properly, let alone run. James never put a foot wrong with regards to diagnosis and treatment and put me in touch with a top-class surgeon who rebuilt my Achilles. Under James’ care my rehab has been very successful, and I am now back running. James has encouraged me and pushed me, not only caring for my physical condition but also for my mental health throughout the long and difficult rehab.

I would, without hesitation, recommend James to any patient."

Karl Sheppard

League of Ireland & FAI Cup Double Winning Champion with Cork City FC

"James quite literally saved my career. I struggled with crippling back pain for months, thanks to James he was able to detect that some of my symptoms resembled a rare case of Psoriatic Arthritis. As I was a professional footballer this was vital to be detected early, so I could prevent long term damage to my body with medication/treatment.

Thanks James!"

Ann Marie Healy

Public Health Nurse & St Finbarr's AC

"If you are injured and unable to return to the sport that you love - James Peckitt is the person that you need to see.

Despite previous MRI’s, Consultant visits and treatments, I had been unable to run for 18months. In James’ first consultation he gave me the correct diagnosis, explaining that I needed surgery to repair my hamstring. James organised everything - from my surgery through to my post-op rehabilitation. His attention to detail and constant encouragement ensured that I finally returned to running. 

My husband, son and daughter have all seen James. James is particularly skilled in managing teenagers reluctant to accept what is required to deal with their acute sports injuries. His early physiotherapy intervention has led to excellent outcomes and timely return to sports."

Tomás O'Leary

Former Ireland & Munster 6 Nations Grand Slam winning Rugby International

"James helped me through each stage of dealing with a serious injury during my professional rugby career. He helped diagnose the correct injury and ensured that I had access to the best possible surgeon and healthcare. James's expertise, care and treatment through the recovery and rehab stage ensured I made a complete recovery and full return to professional rugby.

I would recommend James without hesitation."
