After moving house in the summer I suffered with crippling lower back pain which after a few more weeks of moving furniture and DIY, eventually spread down my right leg and then all the way up into my neck too. The final straw was when I could barely get out of bed without prescription painkillers and driving and getting in my car were agony.
I contacted Function Jigsaw, as a friend at my gym had recommended them to me and Michael got back to me straight away and booked me in. I went for an hour a week for three months for a combination of deep tissue, core training and resistance exercises.
Michael was understanding, professional, friendly and very knowledgable. I actually enjoyed going to my rehabilitation sessions! I particularly liked that it wasn’t just about treatment, as Michael would work with me to demonstrate correct form and how to prevent future injury, whether in the gym or in everyday life.
It didn’t take long for me to see progress with the sessions, the pain had stopped spreading to my neck after just the first few sessions and by two months I was having completely pain free days, which shortly afterwards turned into pain free weeks.
My final few sessions focused on building my strength back up to a level which meant I could return to my usual routine at the gym and play football with my son once again.
I’m much more aware of my form now when weight training and since my sessions, my increased core strength has also helped with my yoga practice. I haven’t had any back pain at all since the last session I had three weeks ago.
I highly recommend Function Jigsaw to anyone who is struggling with injuries and chronic pain.
