Her words

I wanted to get in touch to say thank you for what you have done for me, it has just passed my 2 year anniversary since I had my 3rd discectomy, September 2018, but first one under your care.

At just 25 years of age I was facing a life of discomfort with no more team sport, this was heart breaking as sport has been such a huge part of my life. However, I am very pleased to inform you that just before lock down, February this year, with approval from my physio John Murphy, I returned to playing Volleyball and then a couple months later back to Gaelic Football with absolutely no trouble at all...I feel stronger than ever and I have both you and John to thank for that.

I wish you and your loved ones all the best, seems too early to wish you a lovely Christmas, but I guess I just have...

Thank you again, you will never know, just how much you have done for me.
