I was recommended to Dan at Sports and Spinal Physio by Dr Capildeo, following emergency surgery to replace two discs in my neck in October 2009. I cannot recommend Dan highly enough. I was not an easy patient as I was so scared to move and push myself after such invasive surgery and had also developed scar phobia which I didn’t think could be ‘cured’ at all. My sessions were intense not just with the exercises, but also the information and help Dan was able to give me about what my surgery had entailed, how the nerves worked, how my recovery would progress – he literally got me to learn how to properly stand, sit, safely exercise and I give him all the credit for getting me back to work – something I think at times I really thought wouldn’t be possible. Dan also totally cured the phobia about my scar which I thought I’d have to see someone else for. To have confidence in your therapist is so important, especially if you’re worried about recovery and damaging yourself further. I am thankfully now fit and well, but should I ever have any need for physiotherapy in the future, I would insist upon a recommendation to Dan.
