These chronic problems could be musculoskeletal with pain or issues with cardiac, respiratory, auto-immune or mental health. Here is feedback from three clients on the effectiveness of our approach.
“After countless visits to numerous physios, sports massage, chiropractors and back specialists, I was finally referred to Brendan by a friend. For three years I was living with chronic pain in my lower back, which radiated down my leg and into my ankle, hindering my sport and work life. Sitting and standing became almost unbearable, the discomfort and frustration of trying to fix an issue that felt unfixable. Surgery was looking like it would be the only option. Thanks to Brendan, I had a targeted, challenging and sometimes interesting exercise programme. I now live pain-free and continue to work on stabilising the core muscles to support my back, to prevent the same injury reoccurring. Thank you Brendan and the team at BodyLab Wellington.”
“I was referred to BodyLab to help me recover from a serious cancer diagnosis. BodyLab gave me a focus and sense of purpose at a very difficult time. It built up my strength significantly but more than that, it gave me renewed confidence in my body and a more positive outlook mentally. Brendan and the BodyLab team made a huge difference to my recovery.”
“Highlight of my week: I decided to try a 40-minute walk through native bush up a hill that was mostly steps so it really put my legs to the test. I felt good in the first few minutes, so I just kept going and made it all the way to the top without any of the pain I’ve had in the last year with climbing stairs. It felt amazing and I was so proud of my body for the progress it’s made. These moments make me realise how much the work I’m doing is actually helping to build strength, even though it’s a gradual process.”
