I was waiting for Physiotherapy from NHS after the back surgery, but you saw me immediately and filled the gap. The timely advice you gave on using electrical simulation for foot, back care and exercises helped me to walk again with reduced foot drop and back pain. When the NHS Physiotherapist started therapy, he was happy to see me already improving and doing right things after the surgery. Now I am back to driving my taxi

,,

Thanks for seeing my mother the same day of the referral, she is happy to start walking again

,,

Thanks for helping to manage my pain and inactivity- I was not walking or exercising due to my pain from fIbromyalgia. With your help I manage my pain better using TENS and exercises, and I feel positive
