I was referred to Jane due to chronic pain in my lower back following a period of unsuccessful treatment with another practitioner. Jane was extremely thorough in diagnosing the causes of my pain. Unlike other practitioners I had been to, Jane was focussed on helping me understand and self-manage the condition, rather than have me returning for ongoing treatment. I made great progress over the course of four visits by better understanding the causes of my condition. I would have every confidence in returning to Jane for treatment again in the future if needed, and recommending her to others.
Jane was invaluable to the recovery of both mine and my teenage son's lower spinal injuries this year. We both saw her, on separate occasions, under emergency circumstances whilst in acute pain. Jane's physiotherapy treatment was highly effective. Her informative advice for the ongoing management of our issues was integral to our rehabilitation. Jane is an extremely professional, knoweledgeable, as well as friendly and caring specialist who we feel incredibly fortunate to have been treated by.
I have suffered lower-back discomfort for five years, since having my first child. Having heard from another physio that building core-strength can improve mobility and reduce pain, I tried a few sit-ups at home and discovered that the diastasis recti (abdominal separation) I had been diagnosed with two years ago, following the birth of my second child, hadnt healed itself as I had assumed it had. My doctor confirmed diagnosis, added scoliosis and minor pelvic-instability to my list of ailments and sent me to Jane. read more
Jane was a fantastic resource for my 12mth old little boy. He has hypermobility & could only sit up in the one spot at 1. No crawling or shuffling etc. After 3 monthly sessions with Jane, he was crawling, standing confidently & cruising furniture. Jane has a very pleasant manner with children and is great at motivating them. She only required him to come once a month & lots of exercises to be done at home. I cannot recommend her more highly, especially with children.
I had terrible pain in my back after doing stretches that put pressure on the base of my spine. At one point, I couldn't even walk because the pain was so bad. I managed to schedule an appointment with Jane and she helped me identify why I was in so much pain. She took me through how my spine was being forced in an unnatural direction by the bad stretch and gave me a few different exercises and stretches to help manage the injury. The pain is now completely managed and gone. Thanks Jane.
