Due to lifelong manual work I developed arthritis in my shoulders. My right one was the worse, keeping me awake at nights and with very restricted movement.
I had a shoulder replacement and the after care included physiotherapy at Johnson hospital.
I was pretty stiff and sore at the first appointment even though I'd religiously been doing the exercises I'd been given when I left the hospital.
The physiotherapist I saw did an examination and looked at the exercises I was doing, improved them so I would get a better range of movement. The next time I saw her she was pleased with how I'd progressed and checked out the exercises and then did a sort of gentle manipulation and was able to get even more movement that way.
The third time I went she assessed that I'd gotten something like 60% more range of movement that was largely pain free so discharged me.
Fabulous service, lovely lady to work with.
