I have been a competitive runner for more than 20 years. I compete in fell, mountain marathon, road and cross country events. I am a member of Helm Hill Running club, Kendal. During my running career I have had my share of aches, pains and injuries. I know what it’s like to not be able to train or perform to my optimum as a result of sports injuries. It is this experience that I bring to my sports therapy practice. Through my own sports injuries I have generated an interest in muscle maintenance and sports performance which has led me to developing my sports therapy and running performance business. In treating sports injuries I understand that there needs to be a partnership between the patient and myself. This partnership requires both partners to play their part in rehabilitation and restoring the patient to full functional fitness. Alongside sports therapy I also provide strength training classes for runners which aim to educate runners in developing core strength and the strength of specific running muscles.
I am a member of the Sports Therapy Organisation and I hold a Diploma in Sports Therapy and a Sports Massage Certificate. During 2016 I undertook further training in lumbar spine, pelvis and sacral dysfunctions with John Gibbons and during 2017 I will be attending CPD courses with the Sports Therapy Organisation.
