OVERCOMING PAIN & GETTING BACK IN THE GAME WITH FORMER AFL STAR HEATH SCOTLAND
Heath Scotland Went From A Daily Struggling With Movement To Playing Footy Again With PainPod™
I don’t know about you, but I can certainly say I take my ability to walk from A to B for granted, daily. For people like former Collingwood and Carlton Football Club AFL player Heath Scotland, that basic necessity wasn't always readily available.
“When I finished,” Scotland explained when asked about his retirement from professional AFL, “I was struggling to get up and down stairs. It was just movement. I couldn't run for days. .. I struggled a lot with movement, and in the end that’s sort of why I pulled the pin.”
After 268 games across two different clubs, Heath Scotland was eventually forced to retire due to a degenerative ankle injury. Movement and pain was getting the best of him. It was time to fight back.
“Since I have found the PainPod... to be able to help overcome the pain and injuries, to be able to run and train three days a week... it’s been fantastic.”Said Heath. “Although I am older and getting a bit slower and stuff like that, it’s fun to still play with mates - and pain free is important.”
