"They've made a huge difference to my every day life "

About: NHS Dumfries and Galloway

(as the patient),

I have suffered leg pain for a number of years and over the last two has become so severe that it was difficult to carry on doing everyday things such as walking our dogs.

I referred myself to the Physiotherapist at Langholm Dumfriesshire who discovered my left leg was significantly shorter than my right, she then referred me to the Podiatrist in Annan Dumfriesshire who confirmed this and the problem has been cured by special inserts in my shoes. Both ladies gave me excellent care and have made a huge difference to my every day life.
