"Physiotherapy Department"

About: Leicester General Hospital

I attended the outpatients Physiotherapy Department, as I had trouble walking and bending my knees after falling down the stairs at my home. I saw a member of staff who showed me the excercises I needed to do, enabling me to get back on my feet without struggling. I did the exercises religiously 3 to 4 times a day; feeling somewhat better I went to Portugal for 2 weeks holiday, with the sun and continuous excercises I now feel so much better. I have been discharged with a little booklet containing more excercises which I will endeavor to keep up. My only criticism about visiting Physiotherapy, was finding it. I couldn't find signs for Physiotherapy, it is signposted Rehabilitation Unit, although it does say Physiotherapy on my appointment card. I found the staff are all very helpful and caring. Thank you and keep up the good work. Y. Jackson
