Recent Scottish Government announcements mean I’m OPEN again. This is the guidance for the Scottish Government and my registration Body that I’m having to follow. Please have a read (here) . It doesn’t require you to do much. There is also a short covid screening form link in your appointment reminder email.
Online booking is open, and so is phone booking. Both are convenient and really easy use!
So happy to be back with you and thank you all for waiting for me during the Covid lockdowns.
Online appointments have proved really successful, with patients saying how happy there were with them. They were happy with the ease and effectiveness of them, that I’m keeping these as a general appointment option.
I’ve been taking case histories, doing movement and joint exams. I’m then able to diagnose, give reassurance and guidance for you to treat yourself at home and I also prescribe rehab exercises too.
These have got easier and easier to book and attend as the software has improved over the period of the lockdown. Booking and paying has become almost fully automated and is now as easy to book online as a standard appointment.
Attending an appointment is a simple as clicking a button on the confirmation email. The appointment can be done at a time and place that’s convenient to you. You don’t even need to leave your home. .
During Lockdown I managed to slip on ice and fracture my shoulder. Here’s a photo of me with my sling on. What you can’t see is the degree of bruising and swelling going on under the shirt sleeve. I was, as you can probably guess, not thrilled to have done this, but rather than seeing this as solely a negative phenomena, I wanted to see what I could learn from it..I’ve been doing regular, warts and all YouTube videos on my broken shoulder. I’m now well into the rehab phrase. It never gets easier if you push it. You just move further.
