When I found out about Adam and The Fibro Guy I had been struggling for 23 years.

I faced various physical challenges that affected my daily life, impacting my mobility and comfort. I also experienced additional health challenges that further complicated my situation.  My quality of life was nil, I wasn’t sleeping, I had to give up my career in IT and every day was an uphill battle to get through.

Over the years I tried absolutely everything I could find to try and get well again. My house became full of supports, cushions and physio equipment. I even moved abroad for 3 months and had intensive treatment at a specialist centre in Malta, which did succeed in getting me out of a wheelchair and able to walk 20 metres or so unaided. It was then a long hard process of building up and over the next 20 years, I spent 4 hours a day doing physio exercise and very, very slowly regaining some quality of life.

During the lockdown though things really took a turn for the worse, and my much relied on neuro-physio, who was putting back joints for me every week, was no longer able to open. By then I could only stand for about 2 minutes, I couldn’t sit on most chairs, I had loads of neck, back and shoulder pain, migraines, head of the fibula popped out on a daily basis, I couldn’t bend down or lift anything and my ability to drive was limited to 40 minutes because I had so much SI joint pain. 

It was then that someone on an EDS facebook group recommended Adam to me.

I was intrigued by the experiences shared on The Fibro Guy’s website, though I was initially skeptical, wondering if it was another case of overpromised results. Deciding to give it a try, I visited The Fibro Guy’s studio in Melksham. 

The first few weeks challenged me both physically and mentally, but I started noticing personal improvements fairly quickly. My journey over the weeks involved learning and practicing various exercises and techniques that contributed to my personal sense of well-being. The experience helped me gain a new perspective on managing my daily activities with more comfort and confidence. 

What I appreciate most is the support and guidance I received, which empowered me to engage more actively in life. Reflecting on my journey, it’s clear that the effort and dedication have been valuable to my personal growth.

I am grateful for the support and encouragement I received, which positively impacted my personal well-being journey. Thank you, Adam!
