P first came to me in 2009 after her Orthopaedic specialist said she was too young for a knee replacement. She was 53 and X-rays showed severe changes in her joints. She walked slowly like a 70 year old and had pain
She had stopped umpiring & playing bowls, had gained 3 stone, was depressed, and needed to use two walking sticks
She thought it would be years before she could be better. I advised a second opinion & she had knee replacements
Before her first operation she lost weight & got strong
She made a great recovery & had the second one done.
After her second operation she developed a ridge of scar tissue which responded to treatment.
Now whenever she has a problem she calls and books straight in, last time for her ankle and broken elbow
She now walks confidently with NO walking aid

I have been consulting Jill on and off for some years. Originally, she helped with the
consequences of operations on my knees, and in fact, kept me mobile and
amazingly pain free.
In the period before both knees joints were replaced she taught
me exercises which prepared my legs for the operations.
This made the post-operative period much easier for me. Between operations she both worked on the
strength and flexibility of the replaced knee and basically kept the second knee (and me) moving
After the second replacement operation she worked on the scar tissue
resulting from the operation and converted it from a ‘mountain range’ to reasonably
Currently she is both helping me with a painful ankle, and is getting me flexible again
after a painful fall.
From observing others who had knee joints replaced Jill’s work both before and after
gave me a much easier and more mobile time.
She also helped me to return to walking normally rather than the rolling gait usually present.
The mobility she enabled me to have ensured that I was able to continue with my
umpiring duties right up to the operations and very soon after.
I would recommend Jill for her experience, diverse skills and especially her judgement.
She looks at movement and then plots the best way to make it pain-free and ‘normal’ again.
She uses both ‘hands-on’ techniques and by recommending exercises.
Thank you Jill”
