The Latest Client Stories & Achievements

Roy  had problems with neck pain when he first came to see us. 

Just to let you know, I summited Mont Blanc on Friday, just gone and ran the 1000metre Chamonix Vertical kilometre this morning.  Mont Blanc was far from without incident. It’s the lowest big mountain I’ve done, but the only one I suffered with altitude sickness.

We had a major incident with a German guide trying to take over our ropes on a 100metre ice wall which was sort of fun at 4am.

I am more grateful for you getting my neck back to some kind of normality than you will ever know. I was in quite a bit of pain when I first saw you. I have not had any pain or finger tingling whatsoever since being out here. Which goes to show, as per your last email blog, it’s posture.

Anyway, I’m in to see you next week.

Back to the UK now then Scotland on Weds for some more outdoor fun.

Thanks again 

Roy Partington

Gail had physio at The Markland Clinic  after a hip operation. 

A very belated and huge thank you for looking after me after my hip operation. I really can’t begin to say how I would not be running around now without all your sessions you gave me.

Things have been very tough indeed and I’ve needed to be very strong and brave.  I’m so lucky this hip has recovered so well after your special care towards me.  As I said to my mum, there are some special people in this world you’re one of them.

Your kindness towards me and my boys has been overwhelming.

Many Thanks


Stuart had rehab after a knee operation for osteochondritis.

Please can you pass on our thanks to your physio Karen for all her help.  My son, Stuart*, was seen by her as part of his rehab from a knee operation performed by Mr James Murray at Southmead Hospital in January 2018 to deal with osteochondritis (a knee condition which affects the joints).

Rob Gleeson recommended The Markland Clinic after Stuart’s initial arthroscopy.

Karen was great at encouraging him to feel secure about working on strengthening his knee at a time when he felt understandably anxious about any more pain. Her can do attitude really inspired him to get off the crutches ASAP!

Stuart has just been seen today and his MRI has shown that his recovery is almost complete and that he can finally get back to his beloved cricket.

Many thanks for excellent care and encouragement.


Our Client James Fenton Conquered the Cotswolds!

Our client James Fenton recently took on the Double Marathon - Race to the Tower - in the Cotswolds to raise money for the Cobalt Charity, one of the leading medical imaging and diagnostic centres who specialise in Cancer and Dementia.

The run is a 52.4-mile double marathon through the heart of the idyllic Cotswolds. Unrelentingly beautiful. Unforgettably challenging!

We caught up with James at the Clinic to find out how he got on...

As James mentioned in the video he has managed to raise more than double his target, hitting over £1500 for the Cobalt Charity, which is incredible and all of us at the Markland Clinic just want to say well done again!

His Just Giving page is still open if you would like to donate to this great cause. Click here:

This race was part of the award-winning Threshold Trail Series.

As James mentioned in the video he managed to complete the course with an impressive time of 12h 41m averaging 14 min per mile.  

James was running the race to raise funds and awareness of the Cobalt Charity

Cobalt is a medical charity helping people affected by cancer, dementia and other conditions. They believe everyone should have access to the best medical imaging for their diagnosis. They invest in equipment, research and education. Each year they provide diagnostic imaging for over 65,000 patients at Cobalt Imaging Centre in Cheltenham, the ITM Imaging Centre in Birmingham and with a fleet of six mobile MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) scanners that travel throughout the UK.   As well as cancer, the equipment is able to assist in the detection of illnesses such as dementia including Alzheimer’s.  They offer free training and education courses on a local, national and international basis for doctors and healthcare professionals, ensuring their experience and research work is widely shared.  

Donations received help fund scanning and diagnosis, research, prevention, specialised nursing posts and cancer facilities for local people.  

The charity is close to James' heart as his wife went through breast cancer and the charity was an amazing source of help and support. Here's our previous interview with James...
