I was referred to Maxine because I was suffering from chronic pain in both of my forearms that had also recently spread to my neck. My pain had initially started around 6 years prior to this, but had worsened over time and was now having a serious impact on my daily life.
I’d seen numerous consultants and a previous physiotherapist, tried various medications and had several different procedures to try and alleviate my pain, but none of which had any lasting effect.
From the very start of my treatment, Maxine understood my pain more than any other medical professional I’d seen for my condition. She described the reason behind every symptom I experienced, and often she’d know where I was going to hurt before she even touched me! Her reassurance each week also enabled me to stay focused and positive with the treatment, especially when times were tough.
With a combination of direct treatment from Maxine and the specific exercises she gave me to do at home , I gradually began to improve. She has been honest from the start about the length of time the treatment would take, and now after 2 years under Maxine’s care, the difference has been amazing. The pain that has plagued me for so many years rarely bothers me nowadays and I am still continuing to improve.
Maxine’s kind and approachable nature, as well as her extensive professional knowledge, has enabled me to regain my life and with Maxine’s guidance I am now rebuilding my strength.
I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Maxine to any prospective patient.
