PATIENTS OF THE MONTH - MAY!!!
For May we have joint patients of the month. Tony and Dawn both entered the London Marathon in April completing it in fantastic times - Tony in 3 hours 50 and Dawn in 5 hours 26.
This is what Tony says:
"We first started having treatment with Catherine in November 2015 as we were both nursing injuries from running and general over training.
We had both signed up for the London Marathon so over the next six months Catherine made sure our limbs were kept relatively injury free through all the hard training and gave us lots of advice about massage, resting, taping and pain relief gadgets as well as keeping us entertained during our sessions, as a consequence we completed the London marathon in April and both with PB’s and although we both felt a little sore we came through it injury free and for this we would like to say a big thank you to Catherine and all the team at Abbey Physiotherapy.
Although Dawn is adamant that this is her last marathon I will almost certainly be applying for the ballot again, we will both continue to run and we will both be back for more sessions with Catherine and would not hesitate to recommend Abbey Physiotherapy to family, friends and other runners.
Dawn and Tony (Banana Man!!) Widdicombe"
Congratulations to both Tony and Dawn for such fantastic achievements, and many thanks for the kind words. Keep up the good work!
