“I went to see Andrew Spaak at WBIC with two injured and painful knees. I wrenched both skiing, straining ligaments, one particularly badly, but they have also had over 70 years wear and tear and been a weak point of my body. I had previously seen another physio who had given me some simple knee exercises, but the problems had not gone away.
Andrew’s diagnosis was very thorough and surprising: he identified that I had developed a significant weakness down one side from my buttock on downwards through that leg and knee, and that a fall I had 14 years before that fractured two vertebrae was almost certainly contributing to an imbalance and the particularly bad knee.
He devised a series of exercises that I followed, that he evolved as my condition developed and improved. Within a few weeks I was able to do things without pain that I had not been able to do before. My leg strength and knee resilience has improved markedly – even remarkably.
If I do overdo it and get a twinge from a knee, it is not lasting and there are no ongoing effects. My active life has been revived.
Hopefully with continued application of Andrew’s exercises, and occasional checking in with him to evolve those as needed, that active life will last significantly longer than I had hoped for a short while ago.
His video sessions have proved to be a very easy and effective way for him to monitor my progress and to suggest changes to the exercise regime.
I owe Andrew a large Thank You and recommend him very highly.”
