"I was getting reassurance from somebody who competed at an elite level. I survived the marathon and managed to complete the course well inside my 4 hour target!"
A patient story from a patient who recently completed the London Marathon
I was introduced to Elizabeth by JMax Fitness when I hurt my knee in an accident. I had just over 3 months to train for the London marathon, and having missed out through injury the previous year I would have been gutted to miss out again.
Elizabeth quickly diagnosed my injury and got to work on rehab with no fuss, continually reassuring me I would be fit for London. Keeping it simple meant the rehab protocol was easy to follow and carry out and therefore more likely to succeed … which it did. From being fearful at my first visit that I might miss out to being back running in a few short weeks is testament to the expertise of Elizabeth. The aspect of the service and treatment that impressed me most was the emphasis on rehab and recurrence prevention and not just pain management. This along with the fact that, as a runner I was getting reassurance from somebody who competed at an elite level I was able to approach my heavy training schedule with confidence and knowledge that I was injury free. And the result speaks for itself … I survived the marathon and managed to complete the course well inside my 4 hour target!
So thanks to Elizabeth for playing a massive part in that … your knowledge, professionalism and calm demeanour all contributed hugely to me getting to the start line … never mind the finish line!
