Patient Of The Month For November

By October 28, 2016February 19th, 2019Physiotherapy


Our patient of the month for November is the lovey Alex who is about to head off into the new world of motherhood!

From Alex “Bend and Mend have been my wonderful ‘physio family’ for the past 16 months. I first attended feeling quite helpless with recurring headaches and ongoing neck/back issues, and was met with a knowledgeable, supportive and friendly team who set me on a road to recovery with a combination of treatment and Pilates. I knew I was in great hands when I fell pregnant this year to continue my weekly Pilates to remain strong and on track. I’m so thankful to Fi, Mark and Kirsty for their professionalism, perseverance and positivity!

And from Fiona “Alex first came to see us at Bend + Mend in July 2015 with not a very nice headache and neck pain. There has been a team of us working on Alex to get her back to 100%. She has been a breathe of fresh air for all of us. No matter what pain she had, she was always able to laugh and chat and was happy to keep doing her exercises at home to ensure minimal return of her headaches!! Once we got her head and neck sorted with manual therapy and then Pilates, she told us the exciting news of her pregnancy! She has continued her Pilates throughout 2016 for her neck and slowly changed the Pilates into pregnancy Pilates. She has now finished work and is ready to take on the world. We hope to see her with her little one once she has had the baby. Best of Luck Alex and looking forward to seeing you back here in 2017.”
