Speed up recovery from your hip replacement at the Bodyworks Clinic

Speed up your recovery from a hip replacement

Valentine’s Day – Appreciating the people who trust us

Today is Valentine’s Day, soppy hearts and too expensive roses! And while it might not be your idea of a good time, I do think it’s a great reminder to show the people you love how you feel. Now, I’m afraid I’m going to get a little soppy and emotional, because over the last 15 years I have been repeatedly overwhelmed by the love and support shown to me and…
