“During one of the recent military operations in Afghanistan, I had the immense privilege of commanding and serving alongside Glyn Forshaw. All of my men being Royal Marines had to maintain an extremely high threshold of physical endurance and ability during the high tempo of operations that we were continuously involved in.

As a PTI in the Royal Marines, my skill set told me this would be a problem but gave me no answers on how to deal with it. This is where, thankfully, Glyn stepped in. At the end of each day I would debrief the section on the day’s action events and upcoming plans etc. However, the final point always remained the same; “Anyone hurt, sore or struggling with an injury – see Glyn”.

As a patrol base commander, I watched over the weeks and months Glyn help every man including myself with everything from muscular aches & strains, joint & ligament sprains and crippling back pain. Time and time again he would advise and see each Marine on a daily basis and most importantly he engaged with the lads and boosted their morale with his effortless banter and humour.

Glyn was a consummate professional with seemingly magical abilities. He remains a close friend to me personally and it was a credit to be in the same troop as him. Thanks Royal!”

“After many years of competitive Thai Boxing and working as a Police Officer, I had suffered from calf problems for over two years. I had tried everything and I had seen numerous professionals but no one could get to the bottom of the problem which restricted my participation in the sport that I loved. Work was also affected each time I had a relapse of the injury and restricted my role. I visited ‘G4 Physiotherapy & Fitness’ in Didsbury and after a very thorough and extensive examination, they diagnosed my problem and provided physiotherapy in conjunction with sports podiatry at the clinic to rectify the problem. I have now been injury free for over a year! This is the first time anyone has looked at my injury problems in such depth and actually got to the root of the problem as opposed to simply temporarily fixing it each time the problem re-occurred”.

Jackie Blackburn – Inspector; Greater Manchester Police

“I suffered a serious knee injury whilst running and required three operations to re-build the knee ligaments to make the joint stable. As a serving fire fighter my main aim was to get back to work as quickly as possible but I had to make sure the knee would withstand the demands of such a physical role. I was recommended to get in contact with Didsbury’s G4 who created a bespoke plan of exercises and routines tailored to my job and circumstances, nearly halving the original proposed recovery time. I am now back in the job role that I held prior to the injury. A great job from the team at G4”

Paul Gibbons – Greater Manchester Fire & Rescue Service
