A Physio’s Dream

Jan Lawrence – a physio’s dream Physiotherapist Jan Lawrence provided both an entertaining and educational demonstration for the Montgomery Flower Club in February 2016. Jan shared with us the aspects of physiotherapy that she was passionate about, including acupuncture. She kept us enthralled all the way through. The first of the four displays involved how to look after your back, particularly when gardening.
