I nearly gave up Sports Therapy!

I nearly gave up Sports Therapy!

In 2019 I picked up a fracture to my spine, 2 bulging discs and two vertebrae shunted forwards along with spinal stenosis!

I went over night from the guy in the picture completing Obstacle Races, playing Masters Rugby and doing Charity Challenges to someone that couldn't even walk his dogs!

It took a year and every available scan to get to the bottom of my injury and at my worst despite a cocktail of prescribed medication I struggled to stand up long enough to do a single treatment or demonstrate the most basic of exercises.

Covid lock down came making rehab progress worse and the subsequent lack of activity and love of chocolate has seen an approximate 3 stone weight gain.

When Covid closed my Riccall clinic down I was seriously considering quitting all together as starting again seemed a big mountain to climb.

Now 18 Months after starting my business all over again in a new area in Castleford I'm so glad I persevered.

Whilst my own progress back into the gym is slow and my love of chocolate still strong I'm still making progress and my understanding of the mental aspects of what my injured clients go through has increased 10 fold.

The fresh start in Castleford has been very well supported and I can't thank all those of you that have supported the business, had a treatment and referred a friend enough.

The positive reviews I've been receiving lately on our Google listing and facebook page have reminded me exactly why I do what I do.
