Welcome to The Fibro Guy

I have seen a myriad of people in my years as "The Fibro Guy" and along with the continued client success stories, I have continued to learn and have over the years, branched off into many different conditions. Due to my own personal experience of chronic pain and years of working with those with lifelong health conditions, I know that I can support those even with the more severe mobility and health conditions; supporting people to regain a more active and pain-free lifestyle.

  • Kriss- I first met Kriss in March 2017 and due to Ehlers-Danlos syndrome her mobility was incredibly poor and she was still struggling after her lung had collapsed the year before. Kriss relied on a smart crutch to get around and was prone to constant dislocations, crushing fatigue and chronic pain. Kriss managed to eliminate the pain, fatigue, and dislocations and currently now works full time. What Kriss achieved I could never put into words, so please watch the news piece that ITV News did on her to really do her justice— Watch here 

 

  • Lisa - After a freak accident in 2014, involving a blow to the head from a falling can of hairspray. Lisa slowly began to suffer from chronic pain, loss of movement in her neck and rapidly lost her mobility, eventually ending up in a wheelchair. Lisa’s progress over only 5 weeks of her programme gained media attention and is truly inspirational! You can read Lisa’s Newspaper article here

 

  • Debra - After being diagnosed by one of the UK's top rheumatologists, 51-year-old Debs spent nearly 8 years in chronic pain along with having crushing fatigue. In October 2017 she answered a post asking for a volunteer to work with me for free and we recorded Debs recovery from fibromyalgia as a mini-documentary, which was later picked up by the press. You can read Debs story here or you can watch her recovery here.

 

  • Lauren- Nicknamed Bambi by her friends due to frequent dislocations, fromHypermobile Ehlers-Danlos syndrome. Lauren went from dislocating multiple times a day, having practically immobile hips and suffering from chronic pain, to surfing in Mexico and wearing high heels again. You can read a press Article on Laurens story here.

The individual programme was created by myself, many years ago. Over the years, my client base has expanded and branched into many conditions, so the programme has evolved. The programme is a generic framework based on the one I used to help myself. However, it is adapted to the individual, dependent on several factors, including how they respond to the previous sessions. There is a considerable educational element to it, along with physical activity. I am not a fan of manual therapy, as it encourages people to rely on someone else to provide only temporary pain relief. So, during your time training, we will be preparing you to be able to maintain results yourself after you leave. Most people can complete the programme in 8 weeks, with many going from relying on crutches, being in constant pain and fatigue, to returning to work. If, however, you feel you would like to continue sessions after 8 weeks that is fine. There are many clients that stay for months, simply because they want to keep getting stronger or simply enjoy the sessions. Ultimately though, my aim is to get you into the studio, educate you, show you what you need to do to maintain the results we achieve together and for you to be able to go off and live your life.
