Testimonials for Sandra Snell Physiotherapy

The following are some of our recent certified testimonials (patient identity is removed for confidentiality):

"'THANK YOU! I walked and I walked and I walked, in Dublin, and I went up and down so many stairs that I've lost track of where and when!
My mobility was WAY more than I could ever have hoped. I'm SO grateful for the help you gave me –
I couldn't have dreamed of walking for hours day after day before I saw you!
So thank you SO SO much! You and I achieved together what I never thought would be possible.
Yes, I’ll certainly keep up the exercises! I certainly want to maintain the mobility I’ve got now! It’s marvellous!" JB


"'When I first contacted Sandra I had been struggling with a number of weaknesses caused by an intense cross country season,
and a number of upper body niggles caused largely by climbing. Sandra was great from the first session,
her assessment was thorough, identifying tightness and weaknesses, while explaining the effects these were having on my performance.
Sandra's holistic use of treatments was incredible, from shockwave and acupuncture, to traditional massage and adjustments.
For any runners or athletes that have struggled with tension around the back of the ankles and calves,
shockwave worked absolutely brilliantly for me, greatly improving the flexibility of my calf and ankle,
combating crippling shin splints I had been running through toward the end of my season.
Acupuncture in the upper body allowed me to climb more efficiently after a shoulder dislocation.
Both of these, along with traditional treatments, have meant I am now putting in quicker miles than I have before,
and have given me the ability to train at a higher intensity, while mindful of keeping the more minor muscle groups in good condition.
Sandra would always explain any treatment given, and suggest ways in which to loosen or strengthen the muscle or joint in question,
providing any resistance band needed to achieve these exercises.
I cannot recommend Sandra enough, and even if your injury is not localised or major,
she will ensure you can train more effectively and achieve your goals no matter if it's a 10 or 5.30 minute mile. " JB


"After months of excruciating back pain after a sciatic injury, I went to Sandra
and after only 3 sessions I can finally return to sleeping in my bed, bending easily and going about normal activities
without the incessant discomfort, I had unfortunately grown accustomed to prior to my acupuncture treatment.
Although I was hesitant at first, Sandra made me feel entirely at ease and went out of her way to provide a reassuring,
relaxing atmosphere which made the experience a tremendously positive one. I cannot thank Sandra enough for bringing relief to an issue
I thought I was stuck with, and would highly recommend her to anybody looking for an accommodating and potentially life changing physiotherapist. " MW

"I Have received excellent supportive physio treatment following major back surgery.
A clear programme of exercises has helped me towards a speedy recovery."
"Very worthwhile and highly recommended." J (aged 66)


"Thank Goodness for Sandra. I had been suffering with a weak, painful and tingling
wrist and hand for over 2 years after lifting more than I should.
I had been to another therapist first but to no avail.
After only 5 or 6 treatments, I'm fixed.
I can now get on with all those jobs I couldn't do, even the hoovering and gardening
is now a pleasure rather than an impossibility.
Thank you Sandra, I will always recommend you. LB


"After suffering a shoulder injury playing rugby I was lucky enough to be referred
to Sandra through my work's health scheme.  After only 5 weeks of treatment
 I now have no joint pain and have full range of movement.
Sandra is an extremely professional, caring and friendly lady
and I would have no hesitation in recommending her. Many thanks. MC.


"Hi Many thanks for the huge part you have played in his recovery
– when I took the case on I was worried that he would be left very incapacitated
but you have worked wonders!"  E H Independent Occupational Therapist and Case Manager.


"Hi Sandra, I've been meaning to send you a quick message to express my thanks to you.
It's probably been a couple of months since my last appointment and
I haven't had a twinge in my neck at all. I really wasn't expecting too much from the acupuncture,
but I'm amazed and I'm very grateful for your help.
I've gone from several years of recurrent pain occurring up to twice a month, to problem free.
I couldn't recommend you high enough to everyone I know." JD


"I had a lot of pain in my knee and all my doctor gave me were painkillers.
In the end it was affecting my everyday life and I felt I just had to do something.
I had never used a physiotherapist before, and really did not know were to start.
I found Sandra Snell on the internet and took the plunge and gave her a call.
It was the best thing I ever did. Sandra is a very caring and approachable lady who puts you at your ease,
who clearly is a very proficient and knowledgeable physiotherapist. Sandra contacted my doctor for copies of my x-rays
and wrote to my doctor informing him of what treatment I received. The treatment helped and alleviated the pain
until such time I could be seen by a consultant and underwent knee surgery.  In future should I require such help once again,
I would not hesitate to make an immediate appointment with Sandra." RS


"Dear Sandra, THANKYOU! my recent acupuncture and kinesio taping certainly turned

I will not hesitate to call you again should I need any further treatment!!” MS
