Patient Stories: rehabilitation at The Horder Centre

“The whole experience of the rehab service took away the anxiety of returning home on my own and wondering how I would cope. It was very reassuring and meant that by the time I returned home I was able to do everything myself." Julie Sparshatt

What our patients say

  • Julie Sparshatt

    Postoperative rehabilitation | The Horder Centre

    "The whole experience of the rehab service took away the anxiety of returning home on my own and wondering how I would cope. It was very reassuring and meant that by the time I returned home I was able to do everything myself.

    I think the kindness and compassion received from everyone, at all levels, during my extended stay played a large part in my recovery".

  • Dr Lee

    Knee Replacement (total) | The Horder Centre

    “My experience was absolutely marvellous but the two things that made the most impression were the care and cheerfulness of everybody, even the person who dropped off the newspaper was cheerful, and when people are like that, you can’t help but be the same.”

  • Michael Smith

    Physiotherapy | The Horder Centre

    “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.”

  • Lyn Thomas

    Hip Replacement (total) | The Horder Centre

    “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.”
