Going the extra mile

Wayne Stuckey, a 42-year-old Field Sales Manager and running enthusiast from Shrewsbury, talks about how Pernaton® Gel Forte has kept his running and fitness on track.
Many runners will know all too well some of the injuries that can be easily sustained from clocking up the miles. One of the most common complaints are shin splints; the excessive force that causes muscles to swell and increases the pressure against the bone, leading to pain and inflammation.

For Wayne Stuckey, a keen half-marathon runner, the pain suffered was sometimes unbearable and stopped him enjoying a hobby he’s pursued for over 20 years.

Wayne explains: “I live in a beautiful part of the country and the way I relax is to set out for a run to enjoy the countryside and wildlife. I try to run three times a week, however about 18 months ago I developed shin splints. It was very painful and prevented me from running which I found really frustrating.

I went to see my GP and they sent me to a Physio but it wasn’t until I used Pernaton® Gel Forte that I was able to see results and enjoy my running again, pain-free! After a week or so of massaging the heated gel onto my legs before each run the inflammation was reduced.

I feel like I have found something that really works and I have set myself the challenge of running 500 miles this year.”
