I’m a keen walker and traveller, so when I tripped on a pavement and fell on my knee damaging ligaments and then a month later tripped on a root in the woods whilst walking - and fell on the same knee – it was excruciating and in so much pain. I was confined to the house with ice packs, paracetamol and a raised leg for a few weeks. During the first lockdown, the GPs didn’t want to see me once happy that it was a muscular rather than a broken bone issue and referred me to a website with exercises. I did these for a month with little progress. I was then able to get a referral to a trauma specialist and had a scan which revealed no damage to bone or cartilage, but still was in a great deal of pain severely impacting on my walking which was all that was left for us to do in Summer 2020! The outcome of that was to have a surgical investigation in the form of an arthroscopy and debridement would be likely to have 80% success. I was unsure about surgical invasion if nothing actually identified for the cause of the pain. The Malmesbury Clinic suggested that biokinetics may work for me. ‘What the hell is that?’, but after it was explained I thought it made sense and would give it a go before going for the operation. A bespoke exercise based routine made more sense to me. Robyn was a ball of energy and a hard taskmaster. She made me work hard, I did my exercises at home along with Pilates and building up my walking again. I got my money’s worth as the results were astonishing. Recovery went quickly and now I walk at least a couple of hours a day without any more pain. I still do the exercises occasionally if I feel a ‘twinge’, and Pilates and walking deffo help too.
Just would like to say that I have been visiting Robyn at the Malmesbury venue over the past 6 months. She has helped me immensely and her professional manner is superb. I can thoroughly recommend her to anyone who requires support and improvement of their fitness levels. I hope that you are able to use my comments to further develop your services in the local area.
