“As a keen exerciser who had been suffering knee pain for years but secretly ignoring it, I was delighted that when I eventually plucked up the courage to get assessed Rosemarie understood my desire to keep exercising and didn’t tell me to stop-this is what was worrying me the most! Instead after a full assessment, introducing some simple exercises and changing my technique during my workouts my knee pain has greatly improved and I have been able to keep exercising.”
“It was my first ever online physiotherapy assessment but I had really been struggling with my low back and was keen for advice. Rosemarie guided me through the assessment with ease and I felt I had been thoroughly looked at and listened to. Together we came up with a routine of stretches and exercises I could do a home and I then recieved these via email so I could keep a track of them. My back pain has been feeling much better and I feel more in control of managing it. Really impressed-thanks again.”
“After injuring my ACL years ago and struggling to decide about potential surgery I was assessed and reassured to try introducing exercise again. I attended the Group sessions at Functional Physio Glasgow which really helped with the cost of treatment and support from other people really motivated me. The Physio input was fantastic and within the group sessions and with the equipment available I was progressed to a really high level and I feel much more confident in my knee to the point I am no longer considering surgery at this point.”
