“Following a recent sporting injury I was finding it difficult to walk. Whenever I would sit or lie down for an extended period, my leg would seize up and I’d experience a throbbing pain. An examination revealed an injury to my iliotibial band which I was assured was easily treatable. I started a physio program and within a few weeks I was noticing a huge difference.”
