Prior to my injury I was very active, I played rugby 5-6 times per weeks for school and at county as well as regularly partaking in various other sports.

I had a back injury whilst playing rugby which left me unable to sit down and I was in chronic pain. I had seen numerous health professionals over many months who, at best, only gave me strategies to deal with or manage the pain. I was close to losing hope, so seeing Jim was a last resort before I finally came to terms with the fact I may never be able to exercise again. Not only did Jim restore my hope but he took a truly holistic approach which covered all aspects of my health. His support helped me stay motivated and stick with my programme through all the lows.

I’m proud to say that having been supported by Jim for a number of years, I am now pain free and have no trouble sitting. Not only am I back to playing rugby, I regularly partake in: gymnastics, parkour, Olympic weight lifting, cycling, and running. I’m fitter and stronger than I have ever been which is far more than I could have wished for.

It has been a long process, but I now feel I have been given the tools to never be in a similar position ever again. Jim has been an inspiration and helped me become a far greater health care practitioner as I aspire to do the same for other as Jim has done for me.

UPDATE June 2017: 

A bit of an update with me, really happy, I'm 15st 13 this morning and that's a lot healthier than when I was just under that weight when was struggling after the cancer.  This time it's having cut out a lot of the crap.  So your flyer is out of date I make it 1 maybe 2lb off 4 stone!???

Food and drink -  I've rarely drank over last 3 months... feel so better for it.  Eating wise - probably been never so on it. No gluten/ dairy - it's a way of life now AND I've cut out a lot of the naughty snacks!!

Exercise-wise - cut down on the running, not everyday!  I still go 2 times a week 3 tops, less distance.   I play squash again!!!!!   Ok this one I think you're have alarm bells about but I hadn't played since the crashes and for the first time it felt right! First time I played ... it didn't feel right after- I could barely walk but I've made a few changes and now it's all cool ! - for me this is quite an achievement- I really didn't think I'd ever play again.  I play table tennis at work every day... didn't think I'd play that like I used to with all the reactive moves and forehand smashes, this has been really good for me.  I do a bit of swimming and I've started popping to the gym a bit again too in the last few weeks - and this is what I need to do more of!  

All in all ... I've tried to carry on all the good I've learnt and basically I've got my life back!! I still have niggles, I don't get worried by them and have confidence the body now fixes itself and when it doesn't I know who to call!! What I'm doing and done I really wouldn't have dreamed of!

=====================ORIGINAL TESTIMONIAL======================

After being hit from behind in a road accident in November and a same again subsequent one in June, 18 months later my neck, shoulder, back and leg problems were getting worse and not better. These had caused serious problems at work and I was unable to complete simple chores around the house. I was at an all time personal low. I had been passed around by the NHS and discharged from physiotherapists despite my problems remaining unfixed.

I had been sent to a pain management centre who instead of trying to fix my problems, were merely trying to get me to accept the pain I was enduring daily. A hospital specialist was set to operate on my shoulder. When I met Jim I told him my goals were simply to return to work (I was on unpaid sickness at the time) and return to the normal life of a 27 year old, as I was so limited with my mobility my 80 year old grandparents were more active than me. To be honest I was very sceptical when I met Jim, I didn’t see how he could succeed where the other medical opinions had failed.

I started seeing Jim in November and now, May I feel a complete different person. Jim fixed my neck, shoulder, back and leg problems. My shoulder that was due to be operated on, no longer required surgery. My surgeon said “you are very lucky to find this man, ’ when I showed him my movement following the Atlas correction Jim had performed. He got the MRI scans out, looked at them and laughed, saying the MRI’s don’t lie. He said lets see if you still feel like that in two months, my next appointment he was astounded with my progress and discharged me again reiterating I had been very lucky finding this therapy.

I returned to work in March, went on holiday in May and went walking, swimming and cycling. Unimaginable at the end of last year. Had I not been introduced to Jim I dread to think where I would be now pain, mentally or financially. Had I lost my job, then house and car etc would have been lost adding further pressures to my fragile state.

When I started with Jim I was unable to run through “plantar fascia-itis” and pregnant. I was unsure about what exercise to do within these constraints. I wanted to run. I had tried various other personal trainers, medical advisors and got no-where.

This was my last chance if you like – I was ready to give up hope of being able to run again. I am now running!!!! (within guidelines managed by Jim) And continually improving. (Stef has recently completed a 10km run and is about to do another in April 08 and is currently working up for her first triathlon)

Due to your careful management of me I have achieved my initial goals. I trust your judgement and do try to do what I am told. You also understand external pressures and allow for this. Overall the goals and workload are realistic and therefore manageable – and effective.

Working with Jim has been an excellent means of getting focused on personal specific goals. Achieving things that I had previously discounted as impossible/unattainable. Jim is excellent and changing the “impossible” to the “I’m Possible”

I originally came to Jim with a dream. The idea was to give myself the best possible chance in pursuing a career as far as possible in rugby. I arrived with this dream being non-existent and impossible, in my physical shape and lack or rehab on my knee. Now without a doubt, and I don’t say things lightly, if it had not have been for the hard work of Jim and his help I would definitely not have recovered from my injury and I certainly wouldn’t have had the chance to make my idea and dream a reality and for that I will always be internally grateful to him and the work he put into me. Not just this but I thoroughly enjoyed working with him and will always be proud of the journey I went through with him.
