“I HAVE SINCE BEEN ABLE TO BE ACTIVE ONCE AGAIN, WITHOUT THE NEED TO POP ANY PAINKILLERS. MY LIFE SAVER CHEE!”
I experienced increasing sciatic pain after being diagnosed with PID (prolapsed intervetebral disc) since 2014 which impeded a lot of my daily activities as simple as standing up for my bed in the morning or even walking down the stairs. Over the course of these 2 years, i had no choice but to increasingly consume large amount of painkillers such as NSAIDS and Gabapentin, in combination with regular physio sessions, to temporarily relieve the sharp and acute unbearable pain i had to live with everyday. with no improvements made after half a year, my doctor then decided to refer me to a pain specialist to better manage my pain by undergoing epidural and steroid injections. I knew it was time for me to listen to my body and get into shape, not just conditioning, but at the same time strengthening. with that in mind, i got in contact with my long time friend Chee Chong at Elevate Gym after much procrastination to help me out. the arduous and rigorous process over the next 6 months not only vastly improved my condition but also increased the understanding of my back with the help of my extremely patient and knowledgable private trainer Chee Chong.
