«Rafa Nadal visited his doctor in Barcelona two days after the victory at Roland Garros, where he was visited by Dr. Ángel Ruiz-Cotorro, Rafa Nadal's doctor, from the RFET and Director of the Mapfre Clinic for Tennis Medicine», explained the tennis player's environment.
«Sensitive nerves that occupy the pain in the affected area and give it sensitivity. With this treatment the nerve is temporarily numb," the statement added.
