Say Hello to Geraldine – our chosen patient of the month for May. These are her comments:
“In January 2017 I started attending Abbey Physiotherapy to treat some vertigo I had been experiencing. I chose Alison and Abbey on a personal recommendation from one of my friends. Unfortunately a few weeks into my treatment I was in quite a serious car crash and suddenly also had whiplash and problems with my right knee for which the hospital and my GP recommended physiotherapy.
I have found the treatment absolutely fantastic in terms of managing my pain and treating all my symptoms (including the original vertigo!) with a variety of exercises and soft tissue manipulation being utilised. We have also talked about acupuncture, and although I am scared of needles I am willing to give it a go as I have such confidence in the programme of treatments.
Alison and the rest of the staff are lovely and I would urge anyone in need of physiotherapy to come along and start your recovery.”
Thank you Geraldine.
