Despite playing football and netball all my life I had never sustained an injury. In April 2014 whilst dancing at a wedding my Achilles tendon completely ruptured. After the operation I was assigned to a physio at the hospital. I knew within minutes it wasn’t going to work. Fortunately a business colleague recommended G4 – Glyn Forshaw. I was at ease with Glyn straight away.
Glyn showed empathy and gave me targeted exercises to aid my recovery he kept me motivated when the going got tough. He went that extra mile and let me use his ice sleeve to reduce the swelling. My consultant said I was the fastest patient he had ever had to be out of the air cast boot after that type of injury I believe that was down to Glyn’s expert treatment and guidance and of course coupled with me being a good patient! Glyn also showed me how to use crutches sounds simple but it’s not with his guidance the sores on my hands disappeared and I was soon gliding like a swan !
In order to aid my rehabilitation, build up my muscle again and get my fitness back after an inactive period I booked some personal training sessions with Glyn. Each week he put me through a tough regime and each week I got stronger and stronger. Whilst at the gym I used to watch people having personal training and thought that’s not for me I was happy just doing my hour at the gym, you think you have had a good work out but you haven’t. Working with Glyn taught me to push the boundaries and that you have the ability to do more and to dig deep and use your body’s reserves.
Glyn has good communication skills and quickly makes you feel at ease he does a complete assessment and he genuinely wants you to recover quickly. When the pain was at its worse Glyn encouraged me and assured me that I would get better. Glyn is very knowledgeable and explains in detail what your injury means.
