Three weeks ago I went to see Helen in agony having sustained an inflamed compressed in my neck during marathon training. I was also terribly anxious about missing work as my occupation is with young children which  involves heavy lifting and twisting both to my back and my stiff neck, soar shoulders and a horrible heavy arm with pins and needles.  I was distraught .  I called Helen (who was busy with someone else, however Helen immediately picked up my distress and gave me some excellent advice explaining how to liaise with herself and my GP)   I was feeling so distressed and thankfully my wonderful GP was utterly brilliant and her examined me, observed my distress and much to my surprise and delight gave me suitable painkillers.


In accordance with the GP’s co-operation in administering suitable medication and Helen’s expertise, she was able to provide the most thorough, successful and value for money treatment program. This involved a combination of ultrasound, cranial and … complex machine used currently on English Premier League football teams.


Remarkable as now only ten days  later after combining with my GP and following Helen`s strict instructions of reducing all heavy activities giving is proper time to settle I am pain free. And more importantly to me I am returning back to work It was a speedy effective recovery






So happy NHS   happy you   etc
