A truly amazing story is that of Natasha, it was decided if Natasha was able to learn to weight bear on her legs the planned surgery would not be necessary...a challenge the Positive Steps team were definitely up for, a challenge that we achieved! Natasha's Dad said "Positive Steps Physiotherapy has been amazing...It's changed all our lives thank you SO much!"

If you would like to contact us at Positive Steps to discuss your child/young adult further, please call Positive Steps Physiotherapy on 07801 238819 for an initial free telephone consultation.

Although Physio is very tiring I do feel a lot better afterwards and it helps to have a Physio that I can have a laugh with and that I can talk to. I feel it is very beneficial.

From A.D

Lorna makes the hard work of Physio fun. She has children of her own and relates well to my 7 year old boy. He has made good progress since she started working with him.

From R.G

Thank you Lorna, I cannot recommend Positive Steps Physiotherapy highly enough to support anyone needing specialist physiotherapy help.

From R.C

Lorna has been my son's Physio for over 3 years. He has a complex medical history and I can not underestimate the impact that Lorna has had on his life and ours as a family.

From V.F

Lorna has been my Specialist Neurological Physiotherapist for a few years now. Her cheerful encouragement plus broad knowledge and experience helps me to make, 'positive steps,' on my own every day.
