Physiotherapy For Running Injuries

Physiotherapy For Running Injuries.

 

Running injuries can be particularly frustrating.

 

As a runner there’s nothing worse than a niggling injury holding you back from your personal best.

 

Running is freedom. Whether you prefer running alone or within a group it offers a unique connection with nature and a safe space to escape.

 

This can mean that when we are injured it can result in low mood, poor self esteem and feelings of frustration.

 

Physiotherapy is a fantastic way to return to optimal fitness in the quickest way possible.

 

Rather than waste time with Dr Google, unsuitable exercises or the wait-and-see approach committed athletes take advantage of our expertise and elite equipment to help get you back on the road.

 

Whether your injury is an overuse problem or as a result of trauma we can help. We see a range of runners from those who go from a jog in the park to those competing at national level.

 

Our experience working with international rugby players allows us to understand the return to train principles and apply these to ensure you reduce your risk of injury.
