Russell was involved in a road traffic accident on his motorbike where he sustained a fractured pelvis and crushed discs in his lower back.
He needed two crutches to be able to mobilise and was in a great deal of pain due to the fracture and subsequent nerve compression.
Russell’s programme at H2O Physio has comprised of sessions in the underwater treadmill, together with physiotherapy treatments.
The objective has been to build supportive muscles, build core strength and promote faster recovery.
We are pleased to be able to report that Russell is now able to walk without crutches and feels that he’s well on the way to make a full recovery.
