A patient testimonial

"VCF Physiotherapy are extremely competent, considerate and highly professional"

"After visiting numerous clinics ( e.g. physiotherapy, osteopathy and podiatry) and trying may different techniques to alleviate hip pain (as a result of running), I became a patient of VCF Physiotherapy in May. Through exercises, massage and ultrasound, Vivienne Fort was able to improve my mobility and practically eliminate this hip pain, so much so I was able to ski in February the next year. Unfortunately I tore my anterior cruciate ligament on this trip and so have been under Vivienne’s care pre and post – ACL reconstructive surgery but thanks to her care, treatment and encouragement I will be skiing again! The staff at VCF Physiotherapy are extremely competent, considerate and highly professional ……… and they are really nice people to be treated by! "

"I would certainly have no hesitation in recommending VCF physiotherapy to others"

"Having suffered from low-back problems for many years, I've tried all sorts of exercises/treatments in an effort to relieve the pain. I am a great believer in trying to help yourself where possible, but nothing seemed to work and I remained in more or less constant discomfort despite my best efforts. I became very despondent, especially when my Consultant told me that the exercises I had been doing for years were not the right ones, and that I should be concentrating on core dynamic stabilising exercises instead, which at the time I had never heard of. The Consultant then recommended that I look for a physiotherapist who specialised in sports injuries, and so I found my way to VCF physiotherapy and Vivienne's capable hands. I cannot speak too highly of the professional care I have received, and due to a combination of the right exercises (carefully and patiently explained!), mobilisation and acupuncture as required, my back is much better these days. I would certainly have no hesitation in recommending VCF physiotherapy to others, and indeed have done so many times over the past few years. So when my husband recently started to suffer with a frozen shoulder you can guess who I suggested he should go to see!"

"I wish I had found VCF sooner; I have real respect and appreciation for everybody at VCF Physiotherapy."

"When I first started at VCF I was incredible shaky due to ataxia and very wobbly, I was unable to walk and permanently wheelchair reliant.  After just a few months I was given the all clear to buy a set of parallel bars which have really aided my recovery and walking.  I have now purchased a stick and am walking with the aid of two and feel I am really excelling with my treatment.  I wish I had found VCF sooner; I have real respect and appreciation for everybody at VCF Physiotherapy."
