Peter was a lifelong soccer player, until he suffered his first anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tear when he was in his late 20's. In his 30's he became less coordinate when playing sports and had put on weight. Then during a basketball game his right knee blew out, tearing just about everything possible in the same knee.

After surgery the pain was intense, especially at night, but he went back to work, crutches and all. He started to notice forgetfullness and soon depression set in. His wife suggested he start Pilates which got him to move again, but that's just the beginning.
