Having suffered with a slipped disc and back pain for 7 years, after several epidurals, I still suffered from chronic pain that interfered with my day to day life lifestyle.
With constant pain, restricted movement and little to no flexibility or strength, I was referred by a consultant to the arena clinic as a patient of Róisín Egan. Within weeks, Róisín had broken my pain cycle, made me stronger through physio while also educating me on pain. I understood my body more and became less afraid of doing the things I usually avoided from fear of past pain.
I now do physio with Róisín through Reformer Pilates, something I have always wanted to do, but never dreamt possible. My flexibility, strength and endurance has sky rocketed.
Through physio therapy, I have learnt pain is not permanent and anything is achievable with the right physiotherapy.
