Physio

Rebecca had her first physiotherapy appointment today. She has a really nice Physiotherapist called Hannah who was so patient and lovely to her that Bec soon felt at ease. She asked loads of questions both about her general health as well as her back pain, the examined her thoroughly.

She has confirmed that Bec has very weak back and abdominal muscles together with poor posture (because of the weak muscles) and very tight calf muscles.

So that's where we'll start.

She has to use one of those exercise balls to balance on whilst she doing her exercises, plus she has been encouraged to swim and use the gym about 3 - 4 times a week which is easy for us as we are members of a private gym. (It's about time we used it regularly!)

I'm happy her appointment went well! I had physical therapy for a herniated disc, and it turned out to be something I looked forward to twice a week. Even better, it actually worked! Good luck to your daughter!
