I have just completed my final physiotherapy session with Mike Kennedy and I would like to express my sincere gratitude and appreciation for the outstanding treatment and support given to me.

I am a professional dancer/teacher and Ashtanga Yoga instructor, who is currently recovering from a total hip replacement which took place late January. I am fully aware of the importance of appropriate rehabilitation following surgery and my recent experience has more than exceeded my expectations.

I found the sessions both enjoyable and highly informative. Mike provided me with a personal programme designed specifically to meet my needs, in order to achieve the strength and flexibility necessary for classical ballet and contemporary dance. Following my surgery, I felt extremely anxious and doubtful about my ability to return to professional dance. I found that my sessions with Mike helped me enormously, both physically and mentally, as he was able to combine his role of an excellent Sports Physiotherapist with that of a mentor and personal trainer. His subject knowledge is exceptional and he was always able to answer any questions and reassure me.

I am delighted to say that my recovery has been truly astonishing. My students cannot believe I've recently had a hip replacement when they now see me demonstrating. I fully intend to carry on with my rehabilitation programme as I feel fitter and stronger than I have in years!

In conclusion, I would have no hesitation recommending physiotherapy at Spire Manchester Hospital to anyone. For me personally, I can say with confidence that the treatment, care and support provided has been of a level equivalent to to that of a professional dance company.
