What should I do if I’m in pain?

When you have pain, it’s very confusing to know exactly what to do. This often leads people to put off making a decision about what to do to fix their pain. Worse, many people just end up accepting it as part of life. As if it is normal and it has to be that way.

If any of these have happened to you, we would love to help you by inviting you to contact our team to find out what can be done to help you. ​

If you're new to LGOST, we invite you to try a free 15-minute trial of our Alter G treadmill.
