In 2011, I finished in 5th place at the Duathlon World Championship in Spain. As a competition enthusiast, I had previously competed in more than 25 running, decathlon and triathlon competitions during that year. In the course of that very busy season, I suffered from a very painful heel spur. Right after the world championship was over, I had to stop running for 6 months. I tried every possible health treatment under the sun and, finally, I turned to Shockwave therapy with Alain Scheldeman. I had already gone to Action Sport Physio and benefitted from the services of a physiotherapist, who had given me excellent practical advice to heal a plantar fasciitis and I did not hesitate to go to that clinic again. I met with Alain, the jovial owner of the clinic, and he gave me 3 Shockwave treatments. I was told it’s a painful treatment. To be honest, it turned out less bad than I thought. It only lasted 5 minutes and the pain diminished with every session. Then, on Alain’s recommendations, I gradually started running again 6 weeks later. I was pleasantly surprised by Alain’s exceptional follow-up. Even after therapy was over, he kept asking me how I was doing. Alain was really taking my healing to heart and I found it reassuring to have such a support. This year (2012), I have gone back to competing. I perform at the same rhythm as last year, minus the pain. I get great pleasure from training for my new goal: the Half Ironman World Championship (on September 9, 2012). And to avoid injuring myself again, I now see Christophe Szumski, an osteopath for amateur and elite athletes at Action Sport Physio. He helps me correct my posture so that I perform at my very best. Also, he guides me nutrition-wise so that I tap into my full potential during the many competitions. His help has become indispensable. In other words, I feel lucky to be able to count on a team as professional and dedicated as this one. I have not hesitated to refer many of my friends to Action Sport Physio (West Island). I trust them completely!
