I started training for my first 10k and Duathlon race back in October 2013. At the end of each training session I kept getting a consistent pain in the back of my right knee. It felt like a cable was snagged at the back of my leg and the pain was getting worse all the time. With my mind now in the gutter, fatigued with the uphill battle I faced getting ready for my first 10k with this injury, I nearly threw in the towel.
Before admitting failure, a friend of mine recommended I go and see David from the Pain Relief Clinic. As this goal was so important to me, I decided to book in a session straight away and see what could be done. I had attended physiotherapists in the past and knew that I was in for weeks and weeks of trying different things until I felt better and knew full well that I was not going to recover in time.
Turned out I was completely wrong, David from the initial scheduling of the therapy right through my set of treatments was so professional, he explained what he was doing at all times and gave me tips on how to reduce the chance of the injury recurring in the future. David’s knowledge, skills and treatment equipment is excellent, he really worked his magic and got me over the finish line and under my planned time as well. Without David’s help, I would not have been able to make that all important first goal. By applying his amazing talent, David has allowed me complete my first 10k run, first Duathlon, Hell and Back and in a few weeks I’ll be running my first half marathon.
David’s energy, enthusiasm and encouragement has helped me accomplish many of my fitness goals, what he has given me cannot be truly put into words, my wife and 3 children have a healthy happy husband and father and I have gained a whole new beginning. I have booked in to do many more adventure races this year, knowing I have David at the end of a phone is half the battle already won. I would not hesitate to recommend David to anyone suffering pain and discomfort, he runs an unbelievable service and is a fabulous individual to get to know.
