I am very grateful to Mr Mark Phillips. I can now play the piano again!

Thanks to Mr Makki, my elbow pain has completely gone!

 PRP injection with dry needling of the tendon

Tennis and golfer’s elbow in my left arm caused me such intense pain, and I’d been living with it for more than six years.  I tried everything – slings, creams, pills, cortisone injections. Nothing worked. The pain was horrible. There was no end to it.  Just doing daily activities, like washing my face, really hurt.... Continue reading

I have had two reconstructive operations on my right & left shoulders with Miss Beckles. I’m a stage builder and play rugby, so my body has taken quite a bit of abuse! I’m also involved in a roller disco in London Roller Nation. I went over on a wet floor and landed on my left... Continue reading

I suffered from cubital tunnel syndrome for almost 8 years before I took the plunge to have surgery. This was after all the non-invasive options were not enough to manage it, and the symptoms were starting to become a daily/nightly occurrence.
