Tim Barsellotti

Founder - The Online Physiotherapist

The Online Physiotherapist was created in response to a growing trend, in that most people don’t have access to a professional Physiotherapist in their local area or are simply too busy to book a series of appointments and find the time to attend them.

We are a diverse team of Physiotherapists specialising in different parts of the body, giving you the experience, you need to get fighting fit! Being experts at delivering physiotherapy in a digital format, we have an array of components that set us above the rest and make us the very best! This includes knowing the precise questions to ask, being able to give injury-changing advice that is centred in research, and a wealth of clinical experience that enables us to know common themes of injury or incorrect exercise technique, accelerating your return to health.

Tim is professional and caring in his manner and clearly very passionate about what he does. He is very knowledgable and checked through each stage and exercise with me, helping me to understand what my body was doing and what it should be doing. The exercises given progressed with each session and sorted out my stiff shoulder well! I would recommend Tim to anyone.

A friend recommended The OP to me when I hurt my neck. I got in touch and we arranged an online apt for me straight away. Very friendly and professional. He gave me some specific exercises to do, and I noticed an improvement in my neck within a few days. I would highly recommend!

It's now been 8 months, and I have no recurring issues! Tim has been attentive, quick to respond, and followed up to see how I was getting on. The level of service and care has been exceptional, and much higher than I would ever expect. It's easy to tell that Tim really cares about his patients!

Painful Sciatica treated! I’ve had sciatica down my left leg for a year and Tim has helped me get back to full range of movement. I can now do things I couldn’t do before - even simple tasks like driving or walking that were affected, I can now do with ease. Tim knows exactly how to tweak the exercise based on the pain, I couldn’t recommend him enough!
Professionalism and patience</br></br>

In the middle of lockdown, aged 77, out running, falling, and sustaining a grade two quad tear. Tim was so reassuring and confidence-building. He always explain and gave the reason for each exercise. He has proved that age is no barrier to recovery. In a long life with quite a few visits to physiotherapists for sports injuries over the years, I can honestly say Tim is the best I have had
