How Mend saved me from knee surgery

The Mend team transformed my knee cartilage pain. Through careful and caring advice, Helen created a detailed exercise plan that has saved me from a replacement knee – possibly two – diagnosed by a clinical consultant.

The wide range of self-support was vital and did not involve extensive visits to Mend.  However, the visits for massage sessions really made a huge difference alongside my plan, especially the explanations and home exercise the masseurs prescribed.

I now feel completely able to self-manage the knee pain when it arises, as its bound to, whilst carefully enjoying many sports I couldn’t possibly continue with a replacement knee.

My advice as a result – never commit to surgery without visiting Helen and her Mend team – money very well spent!
