I was playing rugby on Saturday and got myself injured in a bad way! Seems I have torn my Medial Collateral Ligament in my left knee, if there is one thing I will say its extremely painful!

After getting it initially checked out at Nobles hospital I was recommended a Physiotherapist by the name of Susie Horsthuis BSc (Hons) Phys,M.C.S.P. Susie has just recently qualified and is working up at the Onchan Physiotherapy practice under the supervision of another extremely good physio by the name of Renier Stoffberg.

Susie was extremely gentle and precise in her diagnosis and treatment and it is great to see someone so keen to learn and improve her understanding of the subject. After a thorough hour of treatment I felt a lot more confident and reasssured that my injury was not as serious as I initially thought and as long as I stuck to the execise routine I had been set and attended regular ultrasound appointments in the coming weeks, I could be back running in as little as six weeks. Great News!

If anyone else requires the services of a Physiotherapist then why not contact Susie at Onchan Physiotherapy, 2 Avondale Court, Avondale Road, Onchan, IM3 1AD or call 625200
