‘Should I rest?’ – ’Can I run?’- ‘I felt it pop!’
Sudden muscle or ligament injuries need a speedy diagnosis and the right advice to promote healing without causing further damage. My physiotherapy guidance will ensure you return to your sport without a hiccup, preventing stiffness and weakness occurring as your body heals.
I deal with all kinds of sports – Running, Tennis, Swimming, Cycling, Golf, Martial Arts, Yoga, Salsa. I’m a movement engineer.
A niggle that is getting worse will affect your sport, your speed, your ability. Resting settles the problem only for it to recur . I will thoroughly assess you to reveal where the fault lies, sometimes not at the site of your pain.
Manipulation can free up stiff joints and interesting exercises will strengthen weaknesses.
If you are starting a new sport or wanting to train for a challenge, I suggest early assessment to spot areas that could let you down as you increase your training.
I’m happy to have a quick telephone consultation to advise and discuss options -message or contact me for help.
Great outcomes – Rhyannan – back to skiing!
Rhyannan developed knee pain that stopped her skiing. She was deteriorating rapidly. As she was doing a ski season in Canada this was a big problem. Linking online to Canada I diagnosed patella-femoral problems relating to strength issues, slightly altered her ski position and within 4 sessions she was off-piste skiing all day.
Listen to Rhyannon explain how physio made the difference to her sport and gave her the confidence to push her capability and skill to better than before injury.
Great outcomes – James Richardson – ‘I couldn’t just run or cycle this off!’
I learnt more about my body in 2 sessions than I had in the previous 20+ years with other physios. My training improved and my body began operating more effectively and efficiently than before my injury! I am now fully recovered and aiming for endurance events with new confidence in my capability.James Richardson
