Post-Operative Physiotherapy

Following a total knee replacement sixteen months ago, I was unfortunate to develop significant post-operative problems which were severely limiting my walking.

Dawn Davies was recommended to me by the excellent Marion Cobbold of Decoy Farm Clinics.

Each session starts with her practised eye and probing hands, reading the minutest details along the left side of my body.

As she proceeds, she draws up a plan to bring into play the appropriate muscle, soft and connective tissue.

She is keen to share information and to explain what is happening.

The whole process feels like a shared effort with Dawn in the driving seat.

This team effort obviously has to continue at home between sessions. Dawn takes great pains to explain why and how the home-based exercises need to proceed.

Despite having a two-hour round drive, I consider the time and effort spent, well worth it.
