“My name is K. I started to see Jill towards the end of October 2017.
After rupturing my Achilles’ tendon in August 2017 I developed Complex Regional Pain Syndrome in my left lower leg and foot. The CRPS made it too painful for me to complete the rehabilitation exercises I had been given at the local private hospital.
I was in a state of shock at the diagnosis and in great need of support, I thought I might have to sell my horse.
Jill picked up the pieces. She put together a highly tailored, intensive program of rehabilitation for me.
It included targeted physical movements which helped me regain the use of my foot and leg without causing any pain, and then started building up the strength in my calf.
Jill understood what was important to me, that I needed to be able to ride my horse for my mental as well as physical well being, and she tailored everything to help me achieve my goal.
She had me back sat in the saddle after three sessions, and used my horse as part of the rehabilitation process.
The program also included relaxation techniques, coping strategies for pain, and brain and movement reprogramming, including mirror box and electrolysis to improve the circulation.
Jill’s approach was about me as a whole person, not just my leg. Just as importantly, my physical rehabilitation was all underpinned by constant mental support, attention to my anxiety and robust positivity.
Since attending, I have made great strides.
I dread to think where I would be now without Jill’s help.
After just two months, I am back on my horse and can walk three miles with Nordic poles, things I thought I might never be able to do again. Most important to me is that my beloved horse doesn’t have to be sold.
From having all the Budapest symptoms, my CRPS is now under control and I feel that I have the tools to keep going and I know who to turn to if I ever need help which is a big emotional support.
I would recommend Jill. If you want to come back fighting from the most serious of situations, then you couldn’t have a better person leading the charge.
Thank you Jill for all your time, commitment and support.
Once again, thank you so so much! “
