" After a freak accident left me with the prospect of being wheelchair bound for life, Charlie King is helping me make the impossible a reality. Charlie's approach using Neuromuscular Energising Therapy (NET) has given me the motivation and education to keep going even through the hard times and the outlook is a lot brighter now"
Charlie has been helping me beat the odds since I sustained my injury back in 2013, at 29 years old I was at a fundraising event in my home town of Retford when my whole world turned upside down. What should have been harmless fun on a bouncy castle ended in catastrophe, with an accidental knee to the back of my neck resulting in me being air lifted to Coventry Hospital. I always remember my partner Emaleen saying to me just before i got on the bouncy castle, " don't you dare go injuring yourself when we go on holiday tomorrow." Little did I know what would happen next.
I spent the first month in a coma and was diagnosed as a C4 complete injury.I was paralysed from the shoulders down with little movement whatsoever. I was told by professionals that I had plateaued and my rehab progress had halted.
My family and I searched for a private practice that could help aid my recovery and this is where Charlie King came along. I began weekly sessions at Libery to help improve my mobility one step at a time. Charlie has a completely different approach, we began slowly with therapy and with the motivation and education that Charlie provides I am able to carry on through the hard times. The outlook appears a little brighter than it did 18 months ago.
I have progressed to the point where I am taking aided steps across the treatment room at Liberty Physiotherapy. Nothings ever definite, and sometimes I think what's happening is witchcraft. With Charlie he took the time to believe in me even when I thought I couldn't.
I was told that nothing else could be done, but the enlightening therapy that Charlie provides does prove that nothing really ever is impossible.
