Scottish Drummer Hit By Crippling Pain To Share Story Of Recovery To Help Others Battling Conditions

From Scottish newspaper the Evening Express:
ABERDEEN DRUMMER HIT BY CRIPPLING PAIN TO SHARE STORY OF RECOVERY TO HELP OTHERS BATTLING CONDITIONS
A talented musician who was left bedridden by a painful muscle condition is to share her miraculous story of recovery with other chronic pain sufferers.
Drummer Mairi Newberry’s career had been progressing quickly when she was stuck down with fibromyalgia – a long-term condition that causes pain all over the body.
The 41-year-old from Ferryhill in Aberdeen went from playing the Royal Albert Hall and training with drummer Kimberly Thompson – who has toured with Beyoncé, Jay Z and Kanye West – to fearing she would never drum again, all in a matter of weeks.
But a year on and Mairi is back drumming and says her life has been transformed, all thanks to a muscle stretching technique called Active Isolated Stretching (AIS) which allows her to manage her fibromyalgia.
