After eight months of being unable to walk and after countless other treatments, Franco Gasparotti turned to Leon Almashan at PhysioExtra – and today Franco is setting off on an expedition to Mount Kilimanjaro.
Franco suffered Post Traumatic Stress Disorder after being seriously injured in the Coldstream Guards in Ulster. His weight ballooned to 27 stone as a result.
After losing an incredible 17 stone and reducing his waist size from 72 to 32 inches he is now a fitness consultant
He still needs skinfold removal surgery and is raising funds through the Kilimanjaro expedition.
The whole trip was put in jeopardy due plantar fasciitis.
“My heels were so bad, I could hardly walk,” says Franco. “I tried everything, then heard about Leon’s Shockwave treatment at PhysioExtra. I could hardly walk 12 feet, but the day after the first session I walked 12 miles and I’ve been walking 15 miles a day ever since, catching up on eight months of missed training.
“I can only describe the results of Leon’s treatment as absolutely phenomenal!”
