WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING

ABOUT OUR PELVIC HEALTH SERVICE

"I cannot recommend the Pelvic Health service at Inverurie Chartered Physiotherapy Clinic highly enough. It was so good to be able to speak to someone with so much knowledge and who fully understood my symptoms. Isuffered for a long time with nerve pain until I searched for a pelvic health physio and then found Inverurie Chartered Physiotherapy Clinic."

february 2021

"I had 2 face to face appointments with Alison, and a follow up on Skype. The support and advice she gave me have helped me make great changes, which have made my pelvic pain so much better."
