I’ve been with oapl in Shenton Park for 5 years. I found them really helpful, professional and knowledgeable. Thanks to their great care I’ve been able to regain some control of my legs and even gone on to walk my style of Marathon! Thank you very much Shenton Park

I can't speak highly enough of the care that oapl give and the extra mile they go. I've been seeing Sally for a few years now and I'm very happy. I'm now able to walk independently thanks to my new AFO. So again I say thanks to Sally and the oapl team.
