"My physio experience"

About: Newton Community Hospital / Trauma and orthopaedics

(as the patient),

I have just finished my physio treatment at Newton Cottage Hospital. I just want to say that having physio on my leg has made a big improvement to me. I was given exercises to do at home that would benefit me and gradually build up to strengthen and aid my recovery. I know that my condition is not going to go away but I have learned strengthening exercises that will ease my pain.

I was shown an exercise for strengthening my foot that if only I had discovered this years ago my situation now would have been so much better. I can't believe that this little exercise will help you with fallen arches. I was so impressed with this I have passed it on to my family.

I was in a great deal of pain when I started physio but the thought of surgery and possible knock on effects that I would face as I get older really did make me more determined to do these exercises for my benefit.

Pass on my thanks to the lady physio that helped me.
