"I don't need to take so many painkillers now and sleep better"

About: Community physiotherapy / Dereham physiotherapy clinic

(as the patient),

I saw Linda Long at Dereham. She was kind and gentle. She gave me exercises that have got me walking better, even if I have to use a walking stick that I hadn't thought of (pride came first).

Also, the parking was very good and free.

I don't need to take so many painkillers now and sleep better. I would give them 10/10.
