Following a snowboarding accident I started to suffer from severe migraines and neck pain. At times the neck was hurting so much, it was keeping me awake at night. I was suffering from debilitating migraines at least twice a month.
In the past 2 years I saw a sports and musculoskeletal medicine specialist and 3 different physiotherapists. These treatments didn’t leave a mark on my almost daily neck pain and headaches.
I love exercise. I enjoy swimming, pilates, running, gym and box-aerobics. But the pain often used to get worse during and after exercise.
I was so frustrated by lack of any progress, when one of my colleagues recommended that I should see Vitalis.
I’m enjoying life so much more now. I said good-bye to all the painkillers. After suffering for such a long time, it feels so great to be pain free! I can concentrate at work again, I enjoy my exercise so much more, and overall I’m much more balanced and happy.
