One year ago I decided to go on a cycling trip with 40 other bikers. The challenge was to bike from Kolding, Denmark to Paris, France – 1,300km in seven days.
The training started in September 2018, Around New Year’s my joints in my knee started to ache, and it was especially painful in my left knee. I visited several doctors that all suggested to take anti-inflammatory medicine and use a heating and cooling method on my knee. I used a knee brace and took anti-inflammatory medicine before every practice, but after trying that for some time I did not notice a change.
It wasn’t until March 2019 when I heard of Active Joints. I decided to try it because nothing else seemed to work. I had been taking Active Joints for a couple of weeks when I started to feel a change and before the trip, the pain in my knee was almost all gone. I finished the challenge and biked 1,300km in seven days without any medicine!
This trip was very strenuous on the body due to the fact that we biked for 6 to 8 hours every day, or about 150 to 200km per day.
I was the only one in the group that did not have to take any pain killers for pain in the knees, hips, back, or shoulders! I firmly believe that I can thank Active Joints for that.
