After 14 seasons in Formula 1, the body has had to endure harsh stresses. In the last couple of years it has settled on my shoulders and I sometimes have poor mobility and a lot of pain.
Much of the training has therefore gone into strengthening the shoulders and neck. Together with Aleksander Treidene at Naprapat and Health, we have found a way to maintain a reasonable level of load and training, and the shoulders are better than they have been for a long time.
The treatment has resulted in increased mobility and pain relief. The most important thing, however, is the idea of help for self-help. Where others advise rest, Aleksander has given me good exercises that enable me to prevent and strengthen where the problem lies.
