TESTIMONIALS

"Very quickly after seeing Jen my life was changed, not only because I felt physically better, but because she is someone who takes care of the problem, studies the case and provides clear explanations."

MARTA NICOLETTA
GRATEFUL TO JENNIFER RATH

"Such a major achievement to be able to do these swims again, and the same with my spinning. Without the constant support of UPANDRUNNING these activities would not be possible."

MARIA
THANKS FOR THE SUPPORT

"My son recently hit his head while playing rugby. He rested but a couple of days later he developed a headache. After testing at UPANDRUNNING he had suffered a minor concussion. UAR were extremely professional and knew exactly what to do."
