Welcome to our Wonder Wall of testimonials.
It is a selection of comments from our clients who all have a story to tell about their return from injury.
Thanks to everyone who has taken the time to give us their feedback. We really value that word-of-mouth support.
“Having had the privilege of working with Julie Hayton, she has demonstrated a wealth of experience working at an elite, professional level.
She is a calm, assertive, positive and likeable team member. Jules is very engaging and explains why and what is needed for an individual and the team so that everyone understands and buys into what is required for a successful outcome.
Jules is very organised and is able to structure departments to function together, utilise and maximise that important factor of time.
The benefits that Jules brings to an elite, professional environment are numerous. She understands the dynamics, egos and competitive mindset. Jules functions in gluing the teams within the team, together.”
Nigel Adkins (former Sheffield United manager)
“My overall impression of the ‘Improve Your Performance’ day that Function Jigsaw hosted at Giant UK, was of one that was well prepared and well presented. Julie Hayton’s presentation style was perfect for that type of event and she got her messages across very well, including some interesting myth busting.
Tom Heeley’s use of an audience member in his demonstration was particularly interesting and his post-ride stretching session was also first class.”
David Cook (cyclist with Team Bottrill)
“Having a regular sports massage has really helped with my recovery from ACL surgery, I can highly recommend Lauren Dobson and Function Jigsaw not just for their treatments but for their professional knowledge too.
“Lauren has been a great help with my recovery from injury, excellent massage treatment and great advice on regaining full fitness.
“I was having very little success getting back to full fitness post ACL surgery. But after just one session, I felt the difference and was very impressed by the whole approach which was highly professional.”
Tom Horrocks – Director of Oz Media
“I used Function Jigsaw for pre and post-operation recovery on a torn ACL. Before the operation, to stabilise it and try and get it in the best possible position for surgery. Then, afterwards, for a gradual recovery from that surgery.
I had my accident three days into a three-week training visit to Colorado. I have really enjoyed coming to see Tom Heeley every week. We never do the same thing and we are focused on something new.
It’s great because the recovery process is one that I don’t want to do – but I have to – and Tom has always made it interesting and put me in the right frame of mind, even on a bad day. Now, I am back on my feet – and skis too!”
Molly Summerhayes (British Ski & Snowboard, Park & Pipe Team)
“The worst feeling I have experienced since my achilles rupture is fear. It has had a huge effect on the future of my career as a dance choreographer. Lauren Dobson has provided the care I needed, she has given me a detailed and accurate assessment of the injury and given me the green light to go forward with the potential to return to where I used to be, which I didn’t ever think was possible.
“Her treatment and rehab is effective and we have already seen huge positive results. My main satisfaction with Function Jigsaw was Lauren’s extremely detailed initial assessment and the support and belief she gave me. I am now on the road to recovery with treatment and an intense rehab programme planned. I’m also very happy!”
Helen Striland – Dancer
“When injuring my knee back in March during a netball match, I really didn’t think my knee would be able to recover the way it has done in such a short space of time. I really owe that fact to Lauren Dobson at Function Jigsaw.
“Post injury, I went through the NHS to try and determine the extent of damage – they did stretch tests and an x-ray, but swiftly discharged me with some follow-up physio sessions.
“As good as these were, it was going to take me 12 weeks to get seen by a specialist. That’s when I decided to seek the help of FJ. After two weeks on crutches, lots of rest and ice, I started my physio and very quickly started to feel the benefits. Lauren sent a referral note to my GP suggesting the benefit an MRI scan would bring which really helped to speed up the waiting time and got me fast-tracked to an orthopaedic surgeon consultation.
“I have to admit it has been tough sitting on the side-lines watching matches and frustrating at times when you just want to be back on a court. But with a structured regime, the support of Lauren and that extra push (that was definitely needed at times), my recovery has really come a long way and I’m well on track to being back up and running at full capacity.
“Certain aspects of my game have even improved – such as my balance and jump.
“I can honestly say that Lauren saved my winter season this year and with team selection coming up in a few weeks, I now have a fighting chance!”
Kathryn Prusek (Liability and Motor Trade Underwriter)
“I played my first game of rugby yesterday in over three years after seeing Tom for a groin injury and it felt really good.
“I scored a try and set up a few too. I also really felt like I got my step back!
“I wanted to say a massive thank you for your help.”
