"Lack of sleep from shoulder pain has been cured"

About: Community physiotherapy / Dereham physiotherapy clinic Norfolk & Norwich University Hospital / General medicine

(as the patient),

Physio at Dereham with a referral to my GP by the physiotherapist.

Ultrasound at N & N, combined with injections in end shoulder has resulted in a complete change/improvement in both shoulders.

Pain during the daytime and an ache at night resulting in lack of sleep have both been cured.

My thanks to Patrick O'Reilly for the help and advice.

Ultrasound and Norfolk & Norwich University Hospital was very professionally administered with a complete explanation of what was found and what treatment was considered necessary and administered.
