I was diagnosed with Parkinson’s in May 2006 and it was then that my Consultant Neurologist recommended heads up!
My first assessment at heads up! and the tailored programme which was specifically created was of immense benefit to me. The whole team were extremely helpful in giving guidance and support particularly in the first weeks of living with Parkinson’s. As soon as I started the exercises I found some relief from pain and improvement in my mobility. My posture was a problem as I began to stoop but with the exercises given to do every day at home, it became easier.
Having spent 9 years with regular treatment from neuro-physios, I feel my quality of life has been upheld as much as possible. The team know their patients’ abilities and needs, and they are able to guide patients in a very professional way.
For me the team at heads ups! have a professional attitude to this challenging disease, they are always helpful and flexible with the timings of my appointments.
