The Physios

Diana Rayment

Diana Rayment - Widnes PhysiotherapistDiana graduated from the Middlesex Hospital in London over 20 years ago. She initially based herself in the NHS to get invaluable all round experience, before going on to run the physio department at a hospital in West London. She gained her first experience in sports injuries by taking on the role of team physio to a local rugby team in addition to working with the Arsenal club doctor at his clinic for 5 years, whilst still maintaining her work within the NHS in the Out Patient Department.

Diana quickly went on to set up her Sports Injuries Clinic based at West London Stadium and Kensington Sports Centre in Notting Hill. She was then asked to be the team physio for Thames Valley Harriers Athletic Club, and so was involved in preparing elite athletes for competitions and travelling with the team to races all over the UK. 

She became the personal physio to Linford Christie shortly after this, and was with him for 8 years, during which time he won his Olympic gold medal in Barcelona. Working with Linford also gave her the chance to work with other top Olympians on warm weather training trips and competition, including Colin Jackson, Darren Campbell and Tessa Sanderson.

When Linford retired from top class athletics, Diana was taken on as the physio for the pro basketball team London Towers, based at Wembley Stadium. For over 3 years she was with the players both at home and away training camps and matches in the UK and in Europe.

Diana continued to run her clinic in Notting Hill until 5 years ago, when she relocated to the North West. Since then, she has worked as an associate physio for Paul Chadwick, the former Liverpool Football Club physio, at his clinic in Formby, before taking over the Halton Physio & Sports Injury Clinic in Widnes.


Ram Cheerla

Widnes Physio Ram CheerlaRam's passion for physiotherapy comes from cricket. Having played county level cricket and representing his district in cricket, he suffered many injuries during play and was amazed to see the role of physiotherapy in treating injuries and pain management. This inspired him to study as a physiotherapist.

Ram qualified in 2002 and since then has quickly gained excellent clinical knowledge working both within the NHS and in the private sector in UK and abroad. He has good all round experience working in number of different clinical areas including orthopaedics, neurology, respiratory, musculoskeletal etc both in the hospital  and community settings. He has attended many postgraduate training courses to supplement his skills, and he has a certificate in grade v spinal manipulations.

Ram's main area of interest is in musculoskeletal and sports injuries, and in particular treating back and neck problems, following on from his own personal high level of sports participation, His treatment approach involves dealing with specific problems in the muscle and joint systems with mobilization, soft tissue techniques and exercises, and then ensuring the patient returns to full function and pain free. He gets a great satisfaction from helping his patients achieve their goals and stay active, fit and pain free, whatever their age and physical ability.
