I don’t know what I would have done without him

“When you leave hospital with a spinal injury or neurological problem one of the biggest shocks is going from up to three hours of physiotherapy a day to practically zero. Since I left hospital two years ago with C6 incomplete paralysis, Kenny Thoms has helped me every week.  His part in my continuing rehabilitation has been vital – I don’t know what I would have done without him.”
