"The physio listened to me and tailored treatment..."

I visited the Physiotherapy dept at Leatherhead hospital because I was having pains in my knee, this was impacting on my daily life, affecting my ability to exercise and I was worried there may be long term damage. The physio was friendly, calm and reassuring. She asked lots of questions, was gentle when she needed to manipulate the leg/knee and helped me understand the mechanics of my knee using a handy model. We then worked together to find exercises that would fit my range of movement - and was the real difference with some old school NHS treatments I have had in the past - I really felt she worked to find what would suit me and even gave me a print out of the exercises so I could continue at home. I left the appointment feeling positive, my apprehension gone and I am now trying to incorporate the exercises into my day to day routine to keep my knees happy and healthy. Thank you and thank you CSH Surrey for this fresh approach.
