"Physio service at the Lowe Centre St Helens"

About: Community Health Services / Community physiotherapy

(as the patient),

I was referred to see a physiotherapist due to me experiencing excurciating pain in my right wrist.

I had injured my wrist a number of years ago resulting in my having to undergo two operations on my wrist.

Following these operations the pain experinced in my wrist has continued to increase.

My physiotherapist was excellent, she thoroughly examined my wrist and arm and talked me through where the problem lay. I was given exerices to do and my progress was clearly monitored.

Following my physiotherapy sessions my wrist is a lot better and I feel that I have been given the tools to adequately manage the problems with my wrist thus preventing the return of the excruciating pain.

Overall I couldn't recommend the physiotherapy and pysiotherapist I had strongly enough. The treatment I received was excellent and from feeling very negative about being able to solve my wrist problem I now feel much brighter about it.
