“Early treatment can lead to a quicker recovery” 

Gill's approach is to think about the individual behind the pain, and so she treats that person. She's an outstanding practitioner, who inspires trust and confidence.


I'm delighted to give a testimonial for Gill Huckett's Hatfield physiotherapy practice, Physio 23. I've been seeing Gill for several years now. I was referred to her, following an episode of bad back pain. After a careful and thorough initial assessment, and physio treatment, Gill also showed me some daily Pilates exercises to do at home, backed up with written instructions – with easy-to-follow pictures! Regular treatments and the exercises helped me to recover well. As my back problem is chronic, I currently see her for maintenance treatments and these have proved to be invaluable.
