Angus’s Consultant Paediatric Oncologist referred him to Kate Gatehouse, the Physiotherapist for Robbie’s Rehab, who worked miracles with Angus in just a few months. Kate set up a personalised training programme for Angus, recommending exercises to strengthen his muscles, improve his muscle length and keep his joints flexible. We visited Kate at the hospital for an assessment and she gave us a programme of exercises for Angus to do at home, and subsequently, Kate visited Angus at home to chart his progress.
Kate’s enthusiasm, advice and support gave us great confidence in helping Angus exercise safely and get back to the sporting activities he enjoys so much. It’s had an incredibly positive impact on Angus’s recovery and it’s hugely reassuring to know that Robbie’s Rehab exists to support other children, like Angus, and their families.
