About: Knowsley NHS Walk-in Centre, Huyton Whiston Hospital / Rheumatology

(as the patient),

I have spondylitis and had three sessions of physio. and was advised to do some exercises at home. Despite these, there was little difference so the Therapist at Woolfall Knowsley, Joe, recommended me for acupuncture.

I had 6 sessions of this with Steven at Nutgrove Villa, and I must say they made a difference.

I appreciate I will never be free from pain but with medication and exercise I am hoping to be able to control it.

Great treatment from these very professional guys, and I have been assured I can come back should the pain become unmanageable.

Thank You
