Our physio and Bristol Manager Leanne reveals how a tailored treatment plan is essential for the successful treatment of sciatica. “I have sciatica.

I was in considerable pain and was struggling to stand up as I couldn't straighten my back. Maria Kanaki came out to my house on two separate occasions. She slowly got me to make a number of moves and exercises as well as massaging my back. This made a tremendous difference. After the first visit I was able to move quite a bit more freely and the pain was significantly reduced. Progress continued with the second visit and I was able to move a lot more and stop taking painkillers. Maria made a massive difference and I am extremely grateful to her. I could not possibly have got to a physio [clinic] and it was a weekend. [Furthermore] it was brilliant to have a physio come to my house within 24 hours of my making contact. The service was excellent and I would not hesitate to contact Physiocomestoyou again if I was suffering from similar back problems again. Thanks from a satisfied customer.

My experience with Physiocomestoyou has been a very good one. Problems were always patiently and sensitively treated, and the physio was sensitive to my limitations. Appointments were always punctual and never cancelled. I would certainly recommend physiocomestoyou.

I was extremely pleased with Maria Kanaki; she was very calming during what was often quite challenging treatment, particularly at the start, and found her to be extremely effective and beneficial during my recovery. Always very prompt for the appointments and we were very happy to have her in our home. I will certainly let Mr Jonathan Webb [Orthopaedic Surgeon] know how well your practice works and how pleased I am with the results and service you offer. Thank you very much.
