My back feels better than it has in years.
I'm very impressed by Pauls knowledge of anatomy & the golf swing.
Thanks to Paul my career has lasted as long as it has.
Hi Paul, it's Tony, Cathy's son. It's 4 years and 8 months since the specialist unit at Epsom performed a full hip replacement operation (January 2010), an outcome that was set in motion by a visit to you and following the discovery that her hip was actually broken in a fall a year earlier and the fracture missed..... She has had a mostly pain free and mobile life since then.
This followed another occasion many years ago now, when you were still at the golf club, when she was in pain and restricted mobility, you rectified her in a single visit when her GP was telling her 'you've got osteoarthritis and osteoporosis, you'll just have to grin and bear it.'
At 91, she has heart problems which would only be rectified with an operation she has refused, though she agreed to have a balloon valvuloplasty recently which may see her have a further 6-12 months of symptom free life.
In those days I genuinely used to think of you as something of a real life wizard. In any event, there can be few people who have so mastered their profession as to give such relief to people and their families where it is at all possible and to thereby lessen the attendant other suffering which goes with it. You have had a special and significant place in my family's medical history,even if in distancing years now and are always remembered.
With thanks and regards, Tony

PELVIC GIRLDE PAIN
Having suffered with pelvic girdle pain during my pregnancy, I expected the pain to go straight after birth. I unfortunately suffered terribly for 6months postpartum. I visited the GP 4 times and spoke to the health visitors who said its all part of the healing process. I could not get out of bed to feed my baby and in too much pain to fall asleep eventhough I was so exhausted. I only went out once in the 6 months, as i was in pain to walk. I was getting depressed.
My first session with Sabrina was like a light had been turned on. She listened carefully to my story and then said with such confidence "You shouldn't be in pain, your body is made to have babies. You will be pain free with treatment". I could not believe what she said, I wanted to cry with relief; but was also apprehensive as my GP could offer nothing but painkillers. Sabrina then began treatment and my muscles were so tight but I could literally feel the tension just melt away.
Forward onto three days after my first session I called my husband to watch me run up the stairs I had crawled up for the past 7 months.
Each session since has been a step forward to my independence and me feeling like a mother who is able to look after her kids; which has also improved my mental well being.
Even as a Biologist, I am amazed after each session how such a therapy has a massive impact.
Sabrina, as a professional is very friendly, knowledgeable and displays a genuine interest in her patients. You never feel rushed or uncomfortable; she is happy to answer any questions you may have.
