"Excellent care from my physiotherapist"

About: Cumbria Teaching PCT / Community physiotherapy

(as the patient),

I have been suffering with a bad back for a little while and my GP suggested physiotherapy. The physiotherapist was excellent, diagnosing sciatica rather than arthritis which she explained would have shown up on an xray. She devised a series of exercises to alleviate the pain and also used heat therapy during the sessions. As a result, whilst the pain has not completely gone, I am better able to manage it and she explained that by continuing with the exercises I should eventually be free of pain. She has been exceptionally helpful at every session I attended.
