John Morland: Masters athlete
John originally came to see us several years ago when he had been suffering with back and hip problems for quite some time.
As an accomplished Masters athlete (discuss) the problems were so severe that they had taken John out of action and he thought he would have to hang up his training shoes for good.
Our thorough assessment showed that John’s pain was primarily caused by spinal dysfunction as a result of his many years of heavy training.
John was initially put on an intensive course of chiropractic and massage therapy treatments and given targeted exercises. In time the frequency of treatment was reduced to a ‘maintenance’ plan.
John is now fully rehabilitated and was able to take up his beloved athletics again – taking part in and winning a number of medals in Masters World Championships.
