All professions have those that excel at what they do and those that do not. Medical and health professional are no different. Therefore, it is important to equip yourself with the knowledge to be able to discern the difference. An excellent Physiotherapist, Chiropractor, Osteopath or other similar therapist will fulfil the following criteria:
If you have doubts about your treatment, the first thing to do is to discuss them with your health professional, then get in touch with Lucy and her physio team. They are accustomed to getting people better who have had lots of unsuccessful treatment elsewhere, here are some testimonials attesting to this:
I was told that I should never run again due to knee pain. I sought a second opinion and the consultant said this was nonsense and referred me to Lucy who he described as the best bio-mechanical physio he had ever come across. Within 10 minutes Lucy noticed something that all the physios and chiropractors I had seen previously had all missed. Lucy gave me simple but effective exercises and within a few sessions I was running again. I have been running pain free for over 6 months and it is all down to her skill and expertise. J Trumper
The first to take me seriously after seeing countless people. Having had knee problems for years now and seen countless people about it, Lucy has been the first to really take me seriously and tailor a training programme to my needs .I’m now feeling fitter than I have done in a long time and hope to continue making this sort of progress! J Higgins
This time last year I could barely get out of bed and move without pain killers and I was planning on running an Ultra Marathon! I asked Lucy for help to get me to the start line. As part of my training I worked with Lucy to fix a back problem I have suffered with for the best part of 25 years. Lucy was just incredible; her knowledge of the musculoskeletal anatomy is just outstanding. She hardly laid a hand on me, importantly she taught me to reconnect to my body and gave me the tools and exercises to help myself. I had a few setbacks, but Lucy was always there to get me back on track. I have been to so many physios/ osteos etc with little success. It’s not too bigger claim to say that the treatment I got from Lucy has changed my life – I now live without constant pain…and I completed the Ultra Marathon! T Barnes
