PATIENT OF THE MONTH - APRIL!!!
Victoria has been coming to see us since 2013, after being diagnosed with Scoliosis.
Here is what she says:
" After being diagnosed with Scoliosis, my surgeon referred me to Catherine to develop muscles and get as much flexibility in my lower back as possible prior to surgery. I was given lots of exercises to do every day, and though it was hard work and painful to keep up with my exercises, they definitely helped me recover from surgery much faster and have continued to help in the long term. Catherine has also been a huge help since my surgery. I see her every 6 weeks or so to relieve any tension in my shoulders and lower back, and stretch certain muscles to improve my posture. This has been a major help in my recovery and has enabled me to continue doing everything I want to do, without surgery stopping me! "
Many thanks Victoria.
