Because of the car accident my life completely changed
Eight years ago, I had a car accident that stopped me from moving normally and changed my life completely upside down. I had to put my dreams and thoughts of my future in the Great Britain ski team behind me, and focus on something else. In the accident, I hurt my back – 3 herniated discs, nerve damage, and muscle degradation required a whole body rehab approach. It was tough – my pain level was constantly from 8 – 10 /10, and I struggled even with walking. I was told that this is my life now and that I will spend all of my life on painkillers.
With new skills, I came from having trouble walking to pain-free strength and mobility training
But I didn’t accept this answer, and I decided I don’t want to live a life like this. That’s why I took the theories used in rehab and applied them to gain more skills. To have even more knowledge, I chose to study mobility and FRC training.
The pain did not go away overnight, but with new skills, I came from having trouble walking to pain-free strength and mobility training. And because I know I learned a lot in this process, and I want to help others too, I became a mobility coach. I specialized in mobility & rehabilitation, and getting others out of pain. Life really is a crazy journey, and I am glad it turned out this way for me.
