NHS system. I was told to rest my leg and It could take up to six months to heal. Glen examined my knee joint and recommended I have an injection there and then and I would be up and running after a couple of weeks. I must admit I was a bit sceptical but this boy knows his stuff and I was golfing two weeks later. Not only that but I then some months later I had a shoulder problem which Glen also fixed with a single visit. I have recommended Sports Medicine NE to some of my friends and would suggest that anyone with this kind of problem pays a visit to Glen. It’s money well spent with great results. “DONT SUFFER ANY LONGER!”
