Participant Quotes

'After four weeks into the course it became noticeable that the continued movements had freed the muscles of my left side considerably'.

'Having attend the programme I can now reach further up my back with both arms and I can turn easier'.

'I now go out independently again. I don't use a stick now unless my hip is painful. I move around the house much more quickly and get up and down more easily'.
