He was constantly experiencing pain on the Lateral knee and ITB area and unable to walk without hobbling. 
He sustained the injury during CrossFit competition with the symptom, sudden and acute pain, coming from a heavy squat clean. 
Having given time for it to rest he was still experiencing chronic pain and other symptoms. 
He did the smart thing and booked himself in for treatment to the only place that can address injuries like this, quickly – so he can get back to competing and he’s well on the way there. 
Back in a fortnight to continue his treatment plan.
