I was playing tennis a couple of days ago and wrenched my back so badly I could hardly move. After lying flat on the ground for 3 days I decided it really was time to see a physiotherapist. I found Mike Squirrell on Wahanda and was really impressed with my first session.
The facilities are very basic -- really just a room with a table but I liked Mike's approach. He walked me through what he was thinking and why he was asking me certain questions. It really helped me understand what was wrong with me. Having diagnosed me he did some gentle re-alignment and massage to try and ease the tension in some of my muscles. I am still not 100% better but I have to say that a few hours later I feel a hell of a lot better than this morning.
I need to go see him again a few more times and he isn't cheap but the location is great. Most of all I trust him. He clearly likes his sports and seems to understand sports injuries very well. Best of all, he promised I would be skiing in a few weeks and I am holding him to that!
