I have been meaning to update you on my progress and am writing to thank you for your recent help. The two sessions of treatment improved my back a lot and I was very grateful for your help and advice and friendly and relaxed manner.I do sometimes get the pain down the outside of my right leg but it doesn't last long and reminds me that , despite the improvement in my back, I should probably still do the exercises!
Your help enabled me to go on that long car journey and so I was able to have a short holiday in Wales with my daughter. It was so refreshing to be walking in the countryside.... and was something I would never have thought possible a fortnight earlier!
I often write my diary in the form of poetry so thought you may be interested in reading the poem I wrote about my back.... a couple of days before I saw you.
When will I be on the mend
And will this pain ever end?
So many tablets, I now feel sick
And move around with a walking stick.
But most of the time I can't move at all
Or hobble and hold onto the wall.
Paracetamol, with syllables five,
At present help me to survive.
When they wear off I scream and yelp.
I hope the physio will be able to help.
Can't do a thing with this awful back.
May as well just hit the sack....
So thank you again for all your help.”

“I just wanted to praise your staff member Sarah, who deals with the elderly patients. My father in law was recently in Ealing Hospital. He is 94, during his stay he became immobile. Was sent home with very little after care. We contacted your practice and Sarah visited today with extremely positive results. We are so grateful to her.”

"Would you pass on to Tom my huge thanks for his superb care after my hip replacement? I did a six mile walk along the Thames on Sunday. (there was a seal sunning itself on a concrete slipway ) His treatment was exceptional. I followed his advice to the letter as I had confidence in his judgment and experience."Mary, Ealing (March 2021)
"I just wanted to drop you a quick note to say thank you to Sangna for her help. I tore a calf muscle in January and last Friday I ran a sub 50 minute 10k, the fastest I’ve ever done."

"Having recently had an appointment with your physiotherapist, Sian Knight, I wanted to say thank you for the excellent, professional and friendly experience for a particularly sensitive problem. Sian was extremely approachable and I am finding the backup literature very helpful for reference. A first class service."

"I have been having regular sports massage from Angela for over a year now. Angela works magic on my tired legs and I always leaving feeling brand new. Being an international athlete, I need regular massage to keep me training and competing at the highest level. I can safely say that Angela has been an important part of my training regime. A massive thanks to everyone at Ann McLaughlin Physiotherapy Practice who always make me feel so welcome."
Laura Turner, of Northolt
"Over the past few months I have been seeing one of your part time physiotherapists, Richard, as I have been training up for the London Marathon. After a few issues in my early training I opted to make a regular appointment with Richard who has been very helpful in working on a number specific muscle issues within a given session and providing me with numerous exercises to help strengthen various muscles group. Without doubt his knowledge, support and encouragement helped me complete the 26.2 miles last Sunday in a time I was very happy with. Anyway, I just wanted to let you know how grateful I am to Richard - he's a fantastic physiotherapist and a great credit to your practice."
J Duncanson, of Ealing
"I visited your clinic in April 2013, as I had fallen and injured by back. I wish to express my thanks and deep gratitude for the excellent support and advice I received. I am making a good recovery now, and can return to my ballet classes! The excellent support and advice I received from your physiotherapist Sara was really appreciated."
