and post surgery
Margaret had her first hip replacement 4 months ago. She had severe arthritis in both hips and could only walk a very short distance (in great pain), with her dog.
There was no provision of NHS physiotherapy after the operation, just an exercise sheet. Margaret found great reassurance having physiotherapy in her own home. Kirsty’s experience and encouragement enabled Margaret to progress quickly addressing any concerns about stairs, even working with her to get in and out of her own car. ‘I needed independence as quickly as possible. Kirsty was brilliant.’
