“I decided to fight to get back to my sport. My wife, a chiropractor, knew of the Horder Centre’s reputation so I decided to have physio there. I have to say that without the input of the physiotherapists, first Sam, then Annemarie, at The Horder, I don’t think I’d have got the 95% movement back in my arm. It helps if you’ve got a fighting mentality, and you’re not going to accept the injury, but the work they did was essential. It was quite radical physio and there were many sessions but it worked and I am forever in their debt.”
“I limped through 2013, constant pain mitigated slightly by exercises and drugs. I began to think of myself as disabled. Not getting a parking place near my destination could reduce me to tears.
When I finally decided to have a hip replacement, I was in The Horder Centre for two nights, then home walking on two sticks. For me it was a miracle to be able to walk again, without pain. The expertise of my surgeon Hugh Apthorp was key as he is a genius but I am extraordinarily grateful for the care and exceptional nurses at The Horder Centre which is a beautifully designed facility. Everyone was so efficient and kind.”
"After I broke my leg, I had one leg half an inch shorter than the other so always had to wear orthotics. Now for the first time, this isn’t the case. At the Horder I was blessed with a top surgeon, Hugh Apthorp, and the quality of nursing was excellent. There were real elements of old fashioned nursing care. The food was excellent and everything was of a much higher standard than I expected.
Walking has always been such an important part of my life and I now feel that I can plan ahead for some of the experiences that I was beginning to fear would elude me before I had my hip replacement.”
“The worst thing was that my hip stopped me working and the pain meant I couldn’t even put my shoes and socks on. I am already starting to feel better and am walking on crutches and can go up and down stairs. I hope to be back at work towards the end of February.
“Everything about The Horder Centre was really nice. The staff were lovely. I’ve been to a few hospitals and just found the staff there so friendly – they would do anything for you.”
