Around two years ago I seriously injured a leg muscle while running and tore a hamstring. I went to an NHS and an independent Physiotherapist, both of whom failed to diagnose underlying problems or listen properly. After a year I developed severe lower back, as well as hamstring and adductor pain in both legs.
At the end of January 2011 I saw Gal. He properly assessed my injuries and he refused to let me leave until he felt confident in his diagnosis. Gal quickly recognised I had critically weak leg muscles and that I am hypermobile. Here, my muscles have to work harder to keep my limbs in place. But, as I didn’t have much muscle, my tendons were doing their job, and I developed tendonitis and strains. No other physiotherapist had noticed this.
