Joy and George

Joy and George Kitchen told us about their experience of using St George's Community Hydrotherapy Pool.

George feels that hydrotherapy has done him the world of good.  He no longer wears a support belt for his back and does not need to take painkillers anymore.  Before coming to the pool, George tried sessions with a chiropractor but that did not help: within two weeks of coming to the pool, his condition had improved.  The spa has also helped George, he says, “It is the best massage you can get, so gentle on your muscles”.  Before he started coming to the pool, George could not lift his arms above his head; now he can do this easily.

Joy has hip trouble and her physiotherapist recommended she try St George’s.  She can do exercises in the water that she cannot do on land.  The hydrotherapy is enabling Joy to reduce her painkillers.  Because the regular pool sessions help her to manage her condition, Joy has declined to have hip surgery for the time being.

Both Joy and George say they enjoy their sessions at the pool.  “It is the best exercise we have and we would recommend it to anyone.”
