I cannot praise the treatment I have received at the Artemis Clinic enough. Both Elaine and Chloe have helped me overcome restricted movement and ongoing pain resulting from surgery. I am much more active now and pain is reduced immensely. I have gained confidence and have been able to return to a job which I love. Everyone at Artemis is so caring and positive.
