Physiotherapy is often an alternative to surgery – as keen footballer Chris Wearing has found.
As part of the ctchealthcare team, Chris put faith in the abilities of colleagues after suffering a nasty knee injury in a football tackle.
An MRI scan revealed a torn cartilage but the 29 year-old turned down surgery in place of the less invasive therapies offered by colleagues.
Now after a course of treatment at our Crewe clinic, he’s set to run the 26.2 mile London Marathon in April!
Chris, 29, said: “I am living proof that in the hands of a skilled practitioner, physiotherapy works. Thankfully for me I was in the right place to receive care from the best in the business.”
After a programme of acupuncture and strengthening exercises in our gym, Chris is set to notch up another medal for long-distance running.
He added: “Too many people opt for surgery which is invasive and carries risks. I’m so glad I didn’t go down that route as now I am pain free and back to full strength.
“I’ve done half marathons in the past but always wanted to do the London event before I hit 30 and now I can.
“I know they are my colleagues but I can honestly say their knowledge and dedication is off the scale.”
Not only achieving an life-long ambition, Chris is also running the marathon to raise money for a Cheshire children’s charity.
