I’d been struggling with pelvic and lower back pain for nearly a year; the pain was particularly bad when sitting. I’d seen more than half a dozen consultants, including specialists in chronic pain, and been through a number of examinations and procedures. No definite cause for the pain had been identified and no real progress made in reducing it. Then my pain consultant refereed me to the White Hart Clinic where I met Helen. Helen’s perseverance and multi-faceted approach, over the course of a number of months, first reduced and then more or less cured me of pain. The effect on my quality of life has been significant. For the first time in a long time I can enjoy sitting down. As someone who works in an office and watches cricket and drives an old sports car as hobbies you can imagine the benefits. Given the area of the body in question it can inevitably be awkward to discuss and potentially embarrassing to treat. However Helen’s approach put me at ease right from the start. And yes, I am a bloke.
‘Remember me with the snapping hip? So five sessions of deep tissue massage (on your recommendation) and a lot of your exercises later, I can walk without clicking! It seems like a miracle & it is all thanks to you Helen. I didn’t think it was possible and no one suggested it was possible apart from you that is. Thank you very much. I appreciate your work and remember you fondly often, in fact every time I don’t snap!’
Helen was excellent and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her
Before I can came to Helen I had over stretched my hip flexor and groin muscles doing a advanced yoga exercise. I was very unsure of where and what exactly my injury was. I had been to see a physio before and he gave me faulty information about my injury and the program he gave did not help at all. I had some reservations before coming to see Helen as your services are expensive for me as a student and I had wasted a lot of money beforehand with the other physio, so I was worried I would have a similar experience.
However that was not the case at all! Your treatment has been fantastic! Straight away Helen realised exactly where my injury was, which I thought was amazing. I was so unsure what was wrong with me for a couple of months. Helen also did treatments on me like acupuncture which I thought was great as I wanted treatments done in addition with exercises to really treat this injury as quick as possible. The best result of Helen’s treatment is knowing where my specific injury is, it gives me hope that the injury will be treated effectively!”
Helen’s expertise and knowledge is amazing – I don’t know where I would be now without her help! She helped me to understand how to activate my pelvic floor muscles and get strength back where there was nothing at all. Thank you so much!
