"About the Community Physio team from Retford"
Posted by Only844 (as ),
I have had crohn's disease and have bad inflammation in my joints for many years.
I am having ongoing treatment from the community physio team at Retford Hospital. Before I had treatment I have had to use a frame to walk with when out and a stick when inside the house. Now, after treatment, I am able to walk unaided and feel much better.
The benefits after just a few sessions have been improved mobility almost immediately.
I feel that more GPs and others should be aware of these services, due to my work connections I was able to ask for this service as I previously had knowledge of it, but many others don't. I prefer to have physio than reply on drugs and pills.
I am happy that my quality of life has improved without the need to use drugs.
