Triathlete Richard Brittan races ahead

We love hearing from our patients! Physio Jeelna Ruprelia forwarded the amazing success story of Richard Brittan- a dedicated triathlete whom she has been treating.

My pre-race expectation was to race the swim and bike, and jog the run. Come the day, I was able to race the whole thing, including the run without any pain. Well to be fair there was pain all over but no specific hamstring pain! I achieved a time just under my 2 ½ hour target (by 32 seconds!) 16% quicker than my time doing the same race 6 years earlier, and an overall race position difference of 41% in 2012 to 26% just now! And beating my work colleague by 25 seconds (that was crazily close!)!! It was an awesome event.

As for now – I am still resting, with decent walks as per your advice. Thanks for getting me through it!! – Richard Brittan
