Calum – Shoulder and General Rehabilitation
What was the problem Bespoke Wellbeing helped you with?
The original issue was to help my shoulder after a bicycle crash in August 2019. As I worked with Colette I realised she could help me with further issues such as balance and coordination problems and a trapped nerve in my arm.
What did you want to achieve by having Physiotherapy?
I wanted full range of movement and to regain shoulder strength following the injury. I wanted to achieve greater core stability and improve my walking gait.
What solutions did Bespoke Wellbeing provide?
Colette provided F2F physiotherapy in two central London locations. Following the session she sent me emails with the plan we’d agreed on and directions on how to perform each exercise. She also provided support through email in between sessions. In addition, we’ve had multiple online sessions during the Covid-19 isolation period.
What were the results?
So far the results have been very good, and I’ve seen improvement in all areas I wanted to address. The flexibility in how to modify exercises to suit my condition have helped me see achievement and progress equally.
Describe your experience with Bespoke Wellbeing. What made it stand out from other Physiotherapy/ medical services you may have accessed?
I’ve worked with enough physiotherapists to form a small army in my life, and I believe Colette to be one of the best. She’s the best at understanding your body and adapting a plan that will work best for the client, and not just trying to fit the client into a predetermined rehab plan. I feel after a short time she understands my body as well as I do, and provided me with a regime that is tough, achievable and provides results – everything that I want from a plan.
Her flexibility to provide online support outside of session times has made me feel that we both have the same objectives and I am pleased with my personal progress under her guidance.
