My job requires me to lift fairly heavy objects on a daily basis. I love it, but after my surgery it became very difficult. Anj helped me get back on track.Andrew
When I first came to Beyond Pain, I felt debilitated and worthless. I had lost confidence in my body, particularly after my surgeon told me that I would never be able to run again. Beyond Pain changed my life. I have lost weight, improved my fitness and most importantly I can now run around and play with my kids.Andrew
