I had a terrible time with my back a while ago- I twisted to pick something up and felt my back ‘go’. I had weeks of pain and problems, difficulty picking up my toddler at the time, time off work and generally felt completely powerless to do anything about the pain. I saw three physiotherapists (including a highly recommended one in Harley Street)- they were all able to get me out of pain in the short term but they were unable to tell me what the underlying cause was and therefore couldn’t give me an idea of what it would take to solve the problem going forward. Also the pain would come back pretty much within an hour of leaving the therapist and I would again be walking with difficulty and terrified at the prospect of this being a permanent problem. I was so worried that nobody was ever going to be able to help me. Helen saw me, and took what seemed like forever at the first appointment asking questions and assessing me (I wondered what the point was to be honest, given the above). I had my little one with me wandering around the room singing and Helen was incredibly understanding and professional, and then somehow picked through and unravelled all the various factors which must have caused my problem. She then of course treated me with a combination of work with her and exercises to do at home to put things right. She is an incredibly smart and intuitive lady and did indeed get me up and running again, I cannot thank her enough. I am also so pleased Helen is able, and takes the time, to teach others her methods. The fear of a lifetime with back pain was really terrifying- I am a dentist and it would have had a huge impact on both my home and professional life. If I ever have a problem I know who I need to call, I cannot recommend Helen enough. Thank you again!
