Annies Physiotherapy Feedback - Hamstring Injury - Sport Hockey 2011

I recently got in touch with Leon, based on a recommendation from a friend from work. I am a hockey player, and have been suffering from a niggling left hamstring for the last 6 - 8 weeks, after coming back from the European Indoor Hockey Club Championships in Bratislava. 

Unfortunately, the snow and ice we had back in Nov/Dec time, meant a backlog of fixtures for our outdoor league, and I faced the prospect of three double weeekends of fixtures whilst trying to look after my hamstrings...not a great combination! After just two appointments with leon, my hamstrings have been fantastic, and much improved, with no niggling since.

A combination of both treatment, and exercises, has also ensured that I can prevent the problem from occurring in the future - and my hamstrings are definately happier and healtheir, as well as me!

I would have no hesitation in recommending Leon, who is very professional, but also flexible, with arranging appointments at your convenience - I rang on a Monday, and had an appointment the next day...so no messing or hanging about which was perfect, to fit in round a hectic sporting schedule, and working full time.

Many thanks Leon, and keep up the good work!
