"Shoulder Injury"

About: Altrincham General Hospital

I had been suffering with a painful shoulder since Tuesday when the horse I was riding spooked and we parted company. The wind was to blame for this totally unexpected incident. I struggled on with Ibuprofen until this morning when I went to Altrincham General to seek advice.

I am most impressed with the hospital, staff and attention I received. Although the pain is still there I feel a lot better following the examination and X-ray. All the procedures were explained to me together with how I should help myself in the days ahead.

I am so grateful this help was/is available and would certainly recommend the services to anyone in need of help.

Don't sit around suffering on your own, seek help and advice and act on it!
