I have worked in the health service as an advanced level practitioner, as well as in private healthcare; approximately half of my career has been spent in elite and professional sport. Over this time I have come to understand that the principles underlying sports physiotherapy, and performance generally, can be applied to anyone, whatever their current level of activity.
When I see new patients the first thing I do is analyse your complete history, especially focussing on your physical activities, past and present, whatever they may be. Next, I look at how you perform basic movements, moving up in complexity, depending on the context and goals that you wish to achieve. These might be completing your first Park Run, completing your first Ironman triathlon, having a safe first skiing trip, or managing the stairs without pain.
Once I’ve identified any impairments in strength, control or flexibility, I will design a specific rehabilitation programme to address these, so that you can achieve your personal goals. If you would like to get-off the treadmill of recurrent injury and under-performance, to enjoy the simple pleasure of moving without pain, please get in touch.
