A sports injury many years ago has seen him greatly restricted in what he can do and he is in pain for lengthy periods of time.

“I’ve tried pain killing drugs, spinal blocks, physio, massage and other treatments but none has given any lasting improvement in my condition,” he said.

“It’s just so frustrating trying to run a business and relying on others to do my job.”

Hope however is at hand with Glen taking part in a trial which promises to give relief from his debilitating problem.

“I’ve recently been given an implant which stimulates muscles on either side of my spine.

“It works by electrical pulsation and to activate the unit I wave a magnetic device across the targeted area.

“This procedure lasts for two thirty minute periods each day while I’m at rest,” he said.

The good news is that the trial is free as it is part of a research study by a private company.

It is still too early to judge if it has been beneficial.
