"I have been attending Physiotherapy here since March 2021. Due to an acquired brain injury, I needed Physiotherapy to help restore functional ability to my limbs. The physiotherapy I have received here has helped me to regain strength and build muscle. Excellent Physiotherapists!"

"I have been under the excellent care of Ms. Sarah Carroll at Kiltipper Woods for a few months now. I had been suffering with acute arthritis in both knees and walking and movement was almost impossible. The hydrotherapy treatment has transformed me in just a few weeks and the encouragement and drive of Sarah has improved my condition so much that I am walking so much better now. I was able to walk my daughter up the aisle at her wedding last week unaided, a feat that seemed impossible only weeks before. I recommend the superb professional treatment of the Kiltipper Woods Practice to everyone."

"My name is Patrick, and I was diagnosed with Primary Progressive MS nine years ago when I was sixty years of age. Up to a year ago I managed to maintain a reasonable level of mobility through regular physiotherapy and an exercise regime. In December 2021, I contracted Covid pneumonia and was confined to a hospital bed for three weeks. On my discharge from hospital, I could just walk a short distance with the help of a Zimmer frame. My physiotherapist recommended that I should go to Kiltipper Woods for Hydrotherapy treatment. Over the following three months I attended Kiltipper twice a week for Hydrotherapy treatment. In May of this year, I joined my family who were walking stages of the Camino in Spain. I managed to walk 5KM each day , admittedly on some of the easy stretches. The remarkable improvement in my mobility is entirely due to the wonderful physiotherapy team in Kiltipper. I look forward to my weekly Hydrotherapy treatment and engaging with the friendly and caring staff in Kiltipper."
