As many in the industry will attest to back and knee issues as the time goes by in the industry strain builds up,
For me all this came to a head in late November last year, I felt a twinge and thought no more shake it off work on.
Next day I was fine for about 2 hours then a niggle, began to arise and grew to an unbearable agony I was on my knees washing down (shift nearly done). It’s a me thing I cant lie down I don’t go home early.
Day 3 I was handed some tiger balm to ease the pain for a small amount of time. I managed the weekend through deep heat and tiger balm so easy working, I still refuse to go home or stop it’s me most people no chance not coming in.
I then received a number to go to a person in Castleisland who I now refer to as my pint size punisher.
I explained my story and she said come in and she’d look at it.
Met her on the Tuesday and my 1st session I was in pieces the day after I barely moved Thursday I felt back to “normal” no pain working that weekend.
The next week another session and the week after another session.
Moral of my story ask for help. The stain on muscles builds up over time and it takes time and is extremely sore to put it right. Worth every penny of the recovery not for the pain just not worth it when you feel the knots in your shoulder popping like bubblewrap, sorry but no chance.
I’ve been planning this piece for a bit but never came to the right way to put it.
Her information please contact me directly.
