"I feel so lucky we have such services available!"

About: St Helens Hospital / Trauma and orthopaedics

(as the patient),

AMAZING! ! ! I feel so lucky we have such services available! I have had a trapped nerve for over a year and a half (although I didn’t know that was what it was! ) I eventually went to my GP and got referred to physio with Cate at St Helens hospital.

In the first 40 minute session she had identified a stiff joint in my neck and given me exercises. I have recently been back for more work on my neck. She is incredible. I think it is amazing we have free access to people that know about our bodies and can help us fix them! I’m so grateful and happy and want to thank you all! !

Hi Fee418 and 5 Boroughs PALS officers,

I'm afraid I made a mistake whilst tagging your story. I should have tagged it to St Helens Hopspital, Trauma and Orthopedics. I have re-tagged this now, so your story is in the correct place.

I am really sorry for any inconvenience that this mistake caused.

Take Care

Natalie
