After a short break with patient of the month – we’re back!
Say Hello to Eddie, our Patient of the Month for March. Here are his comments:
‘I have just returned to Abbey Physiotherapy for a couple of sessions to assist with a sore achilles sustained following a return to competitive hockey. In meeting with Alison again, I am reminded of my progress over the last two years, having first attended the clinic in May 2017 following two full knee replacements.
Whilst having total respect and admiration for the NHS team completing my surgery, the rehabilitation and physio support available was limited and certainly not designed to facilitate a full recovery and return to an active lifestyle. Having managed a knee injury for 30 plus years, it was hardly surprising that I had developed some poor habits. With Alison’s help, I learnt to walk, jog and run again, never mind the hop, skip and jumping that are a central part of my everyday work!
Alison’s caring, attentive and professional support has been fundamental in ensuring my rehabilitation – I’m back playing hockey, have walked Snowdon once again and can enjoy a full day’s work pain-free! Providing regular sessions, hands-on therapy and a structured programme of exercises, the team at Abbey have ensured that I maximise the full benefits of surgery.’
