It’s now 12 months since the operation and the attached photo was taken at Danby Beacon on the Esk Valley Walk, North Yorkshire, part of a 3 day 25 mile walk which I did with friends just 4 months after the procedure. The treatment, guidance and support that I received from Paul and Andy have helped me to make a full recovery, allowing me to do any activity I wish, apart from any more marathons!
I have absolute confidence in referring my patients to Elite Physical Medicine. They are a skilled and highly professional team. We have constant communication and dialogue about our patients which results in seamless care.
The Oxford English Dictionary describes ‘Elite’ as a select group. Indeed so! Whether it is shoulder, leg fracture, neck, or whatever, highly qualified therapists will always ‘come up trumps’ with appropriate treatment at Elite.
I came to Elite after being diagnosed with slipped discs, Andy McCrea was my appointed physio, and his exercise program, and support for me were both excellent, every time I walked through the door I felt down and tired with this injury, however the treatment I received from Andy meant I always left feeling less pain and more positive in my attitude to getting well.
Many thanks to Gus at Elite Physical Medicine for helping me to achieve a PB at the Thame 10k this weekend. Gus devised a strength and conditioning programme over a 6 month period as part of a case study. As a result of 2 gym sessions and 2 run sessions each week, I feel stronger running, have seen a marked improvement in performance and a noticeable reduction in the usual running niggles.
I am delighted to provide a written testimonial for you. Since the inception of Elite Physical Medicine, I have been impressed by both the degree of professionalism and also care that is provided. You and your colleagues have consistently been praised by patients when I have referred them to you, and I value your close working relationship.
I worked with Andy from Elite Physical Medicine for a number of months due to a torn cartilage in my knee. The customer experience I received was outstanding. After one session, Andy had diagnosed the issue and then followed this up by writing to my GP and Consultant. Post my operation, Andy was very supportive and knowledgeable as I went through rehab. This involved explaining how the knee was repairing, exercises required and very inspirational in driving me to fully recover and very patient. I was so impressed that I recommended Andy to my wife when she had tennis elbow. Again, she received a first class experience. Thank you Andy.
Being a competitive rower, it was rather a huge hindrance in working progress when I fractured my ankle, and did critical soft tissue damage to all the ligaments and tendons as well. Initially, it was thought I’d need surgery on the ankle but after going to Elite Physical Medicine for a number of sessions it seemed to be that an operation wouldn’t be necessary. I’d used Elite Physical Medicine in the past and therefore had every faith in their ability. I’m now training and competing again to the same standard and intensity as previously.
Elite have provided excellent rehabilitation post ACL surgery. I now have full confidence that my knee is strong and stable enough to comfortably withstand all the demands associated with horse riding.
The team at Elite Physical Medicine did a fantastic job for me – not only did they quickly understand and diagnose exactly what was causing my Achilles problem, they also put my mind at rest that I wasn’t at high risk of a rupture. The recovery program was ideal for me – gradual return to exercise, specific exercises at their gym and at home, and lots of positive encouragement to reinforce my progress. I was really impressed with Paul – he took a chronic, frustrating problem and steadily got me back to normal again. Thanks for all your help and keep up the great work!
