I had no clue that a physiotherapist could treat my hand pain, I was told my only option was surgery. Now with only two sessions my pain has gone, I can't believe it.
You have given me the strength to get through this knee replacement and the encouragement that I needed to improve every day.
Thanks for making physio fun!
I never thought I would be back playing football with more strength and confidence after my tearing my ligament for the second time. I owe it to you. Thank you very much.
Thank you Becky for all your help and fun we had doing my scoliosis exercises. I will miss you and I promise I will keep doing them!
I've had so much physiotherapy since my brain injury happened but this is the first time I've actually looked forward to it.
Thank you so much for all your help and support after my hip fracture. I am completely pain free now!
Rehabilitation in older people is multifactorial which means you may be treating a variety of symptoms and conditions at the same time. A good understanding of how our body interacts with itself is essential.
Becky’s experience has taught her that you need a good all-round knowledge to treat senior patients. Her training includes orthogeriatric rehabilitation (specialist orhtopeadic surgery for elderly patients), oncology, falls prevention teams, respiratory physiotherapy and neuro-rehabiltiation. As well as this education she has extensive experience in treating Dementia patients (including Alzheimer’s).
