Focussing on sports
The infinite possibilities of physical activities, doing different kinds of sports and enjoying nature with all its elements triggers a feeling of liberty inside me that plays a central role in my life.
Due to my urge to move I started to passionately indulge in sports already in my early childhood. I was particularly drawn to all kinds of gliding sports. Snowboarding, skiing, kite surfing and surfing still belong to my favourite pastimes.
As a result of several sport injuries I was suffering from chronic pain. A blunt pain that was continuously phasing in and out had become a constant part of my life. My main problem areas include the hip joints, the lumbar spine and the thoracic spine including the surrounding muscular areas. At the age of 33 my quality of life was severely affected by these issues, my capacity reduced and my mood gloomy.
Did I have to resign to this state? Would the pain disappear, as quickly as it had appeared? Would the condition get worse, or was there maybe a simple solution for my problems?
My body was communicating unmistakably that something had to change.
