'I am aged 81, a DIY enthusiast and a keen gardener; I also play indoor bowls in the winter.
Three summers ago I developed lower back problems and as the summer progressedmy condition got worse. DIY had to be curtailed and only light gardening work undertaken. There were periods when the pain was so bad with muscle spasms that I had to go to bed for the remainder of that day. I attended various physiotherapists during this period but any pain relief was short lived.
In late Autumn that year a friend suggested I try Seamus McCallion. I found his intensive 'hands on' treatment, advice on posture and instructions on regular home exercises produced a remarkable improvement in my condition. Such was my recovery that by January and Feruary I had completely redecorated two bedrooms including painting the ceilings.
I have since enjoyed the last two summers of relatively pain free gardening and other activities. I still visit Seamus once every six weeks to help keep me in shape and rectify any slight aches which develop when I forget my age and get over enthusiastic regarding my physical capabilities.
Based on my personal experience I whole heartedly recommend Seamus McCallion to anyone who requires physiotherapy treatment, no matter their age.'
I can't speak highly enough of the wonderful treatment received at McCallion Physiotherapy practice. After almost 1 year of permanent pain around the hip and decreasing ability to even walk, I approached Lesley and Seamus who began a process of therapies which has resulted in my being pain free and able to return to 'normal' life. Particularly useful has been the PRI therapy (Postural Restoration) introduced by Seamus which has been so effective in restoring my fitness levels. This, along with attending regular Pilates classes held by the practice has been remarkable in aiding my recovery and I am so grateful for their expert care.
