I was recommended to book in with one of the physiotherapist’s at Didsbury’s G4 Clinic in October 2012. I had been suffering from persistent left sided groin pain and stiffness particularly after intense training sessions or playing matches on a weekly basis for my club.
Being a professional footballer, it was important that I remained injury free and that I was available for match selection every week. The demands of the weekly training sessions are intense and my body is put under extreme pressure with excessive loads place upon it as expected at the level of my sport.
I have found that the treatment of ‘Acupuncture’ in conjunction with other forms of physiotherapy and a specialised rehabilitation programme provided by the team at G4 has enabled me to continue training and playing during the season. The treatment has allowed me to train as hard every day and has helped me to maintain my match fitness and sharpness.
A big highlight of my career has been playing against the big clubs and playing against world class players like Steven Gerrard and Luis Suarez.
The hard and dedicated work of the team at G4 allowed me to play against Liverpool Football Club in the recent FA Cup tie which we successfully won and progressed to the next round to play Everton Football Club.
I have recommended the treatment of ‘Acupuncture’ to my friends and team mates as the work that the G4 team have done has been tremendous.
