"The physio was excellent and took time to explain the exercises"

About: Community Health Services / Community physiotherapy

(as the patient),

Fractured my ankle in September and started physio in November. Was referred to lower limb exercise class and started in March for 6 sessions.

Emma, the physio, was excellent and took time to explain the exercises and the way the body works/heals. There were approximately 6 patients in the class and she took the time with each of us to make sure we were exercising correctly.

We also had a student physio during some classes – from Salford Uni – and he too was excellent.

My main problem was confidence, but I was assured my ankle was up to it!

Well worthwhile attending. Well done Emma and thanks.
