There is nothing more frustrating than being injured because of participating in your sport. Often athletes will try resting from their sport for a week or so. Whilst rest may reduce the pain of an acute injury, it will not address the underlying reason why the injury occurred in the first place.
Sometimes self-diagnosis can lead to a frustrating relegation to the sofa that not only makes athletes twitchy, but may also be unnecessary.
I am a Coach in Running Fitness for the Quakers Running Club, physiotherapist for Darlington Gymnastics Club and deliver Pilates for Richmond Triathlon Club, I work with a wide range of athletes.
Commonly sports injuries have an underlying biomechanical issue, muscle imbalance or technique fault. I pride myself in being able to track down and treat the underlying cause of your symptomatic injury ensuring you are back to training and competing as quickly as possible.
I can assess and treat a wide range of musculoskeletal disorders such as:
- Spinal and peripheral joint pain
- Muscular/ligament soft tissue dysfunction
- Pre and post-operative presentations
- Running injuries, running gait dysfunction and gait retraining
- Pre and post-natal pregnancy related low back/pelvic pain
Whatever your problem, pain or performance issue, I can help and I offer a personal, friendly service which begins with a no-obligation chat.
