I am a lady in her mid-fifties who has Cerebral Palsy. This affects all four limbs and I can only walk short distances unaided. Getting older I am experiencing more pain in various parts of my body which had begun to affect my daily living.
Chris was quick to identify the problems and through manipulation and gentle exercise my pain has reduced significantly and painkillers are no longer on my weekly shopping list. The tips that Chris gave me in terms of trying to move in different ways has been instrumental in managing my pain. Sometimes it’s the simple tips that I have made such a difference to my everyday life.
Frequent falls have an impact on my pain areas. To reduce the risk of falling Chris devised a six-month programme with fortnightly sessions focusing on exercises that would strengthen my weaker leg and improve my balance. Through these sessions and a great deal of hard work and commitment on my part in between sessions, my balance has improved which have meant significantly reduced falls.
I have had many positive outcomes from this programme but my favourite one has to be that I now have the strength and confidence to take myself on shopping trips using the walker rather than relying on somebody to get my scooter in and out of the car. Increasing my independence.
Chris’s positive attitude towards my disability, encouragement, and support has spurred me on to improve my mobility and to try things I haven’t done for years. I would recommend Chris’s service to anybody in a similar position to myself.
