A Patient’s Story

Helping our patient’s get back to doing what they love is one of our prime goals. It’s always great to hear how people are getting on after treatment has finished at the osteopathy clinic in Cobham.

Chris from Cobham emailed a couple of days ago to tell me how things are going. She’d initially come in some months back for knee pain which had prevented her from taking part in her exercise classes and was having an impact on her ability to garden. Both were very important to her. We worked together using osteopathic techniques, exercise rehab and some temporary lifestyle changes to reduce pain. It was also necessary to have an x-ray done in order to clarify what level of change had occurred in her knee.

She writes:

“Since my x-ray and your exercise advice, my knee/hip problems have been almost non-existent.  I know the wear and tear there will mean pain will be intermittent but still, I’m grateful all is well for the moment.  I’m back to the level of running and other exercise that suits me and I enjoy.  So thanks so much for all your help and advice.”

Chris is a great example of someone who is self-managing brilliantly and knows what to do if her knee gets a little sore from time to time. She is a great example that perseverance pays off. Keep it up Chris!

If you need any help or advice please get in touch. Don’t let pain get in the way of what you love doing.
