“Taught my legs how to run again!” - S Keen, hip replacement patient

Following my second hip replacement, I wanted to resume training fast. Sophie helped me in this immensely, initially through massage and manipulation and providing me with a set of strengthening exercises I could do whilst I was still on crutches, and subsequently through assisting with gradual mobilisation and articulation of my legs. Whereas with my first replacement I was on crutches for six weeks, after the second, with Sophie’s intervention, the time was more like three. She also, in effect, taught my legs how to run again, and with better technique than I had used before. Though recovery from any injury has to start with you, having the right support accelerates the process, and Sophie was there when I needed her, helping me hit all of my targets for returning to fitness.
