Some of you know I suffered a back injury December 2013 resulting in five bulging discs in my lumbar spine (EVERY disc). Then October last year the nerve at L5/S1 became compressed resulting in foot drop. Walking, something we all take for granted, became a chore. It was exhausting. I couldn’t walk far at all. I had been seeing a physio since the back injury but sadly treatment was not helping. I lost hope, I resigned myself to never walking properly again and being stared at by strangers. I was devastated.

Then a friend @cinty17 recommended I see @paulpegs from @s.t.a.r.t_training. I thought I would just be wasting more money but I rang Paul. He said give me eight weeks and I’ll have you walking. I felt a glimmer of hope return and thought ‘what do I have to lose’. So I gave Paul those eight weeks and guess what?? I am now walking again.

Due to permanent nerve damage I will never walk perfectly again like you do but I am so bloody happy right now. I cannot thank @paulpegs enough for not only giving me hope again but for enabling me to walk. I now have a new challenge for Paul, I want to run!! Paul has accepted this challenge and today I actually ran for five minutes on the treadmill, not a big deal for most of you but for me this is fantastic (remeber I couldn’t even walk let alone run)!!

For everyone out there don’t give up, keep trying, keep searching for that one person to help you along the way. I’m proof it can happen!! If you need help give Paul a call @s.t.a.r.t_training, he’s always up for a challenge!! The videos are how I was walking with foot drop and how I am walking now.

I can’t recommend Paul highly enough. I used to injure my hamstring quite often over the past ten years (usually at least twice a year) but after going to Paul, I haven’t had any issues in over 14 months. Recently, I have sought his help with lower back issues and it has felt as good as ever

Sami has been so great in helping me with my hip and back issues. I cannot thank her enough!
Thank you, Lisa! Your sessions have been so beneficial and I am moving and feeling so much better!
Lisa Campbell has been exceptional in helping with my athletic development and rehabilitation of previous injuries. 6 months with her is all it took to be fitter and stronger than I’ve ever been! I have also recently begun to see Will for massages and these have been sublime in helping to keep the body going on a weekly basis. All in all, a group of physiological wizards. 11/10 would recommend.

I wrote a review for testimonials but dont know where it ended up. Lisa has helped me so much the last year after wasting the previous one with a useless physio at Kallangur. Paul is now helping get me baxk on my feet so hopefully l can walk without pain again

Jack Tag
Between Paul and Sami, I'm pretty sure they have repaired and rehabbed my whole body! From general skeletal issues, to tight muscles and injuries, and on to training for specific events they have everything covered. I'm moving forward better than ever before and am grateful to have discovered this practice 🙂
Ainslie Berg
Paul and the team are fantastic. I am recovering from a broken ankle. Paul helped alleviate the pain that was caused by my muscles being in hibernation, in a cast for 6weeks and Lisa helped by getting me back on my feet with strengthening exercises.
