With running being one of the largest participation sports in the UK it’s not a huge surprise that running injuries are common. There’s nothing better than the freedom of pulling on your trainers after a long, hard day, to go out, run and unwind. But when you’re no longer able to run all your troubles away, we understand it can leave you feeling frustrated and start to affect the quality of your life.
At Swindon Sports Therapy we use an advanced approach called Progressive Sports Therapy. Progressive Sports Therapy encompasses the best of tried and tested Sports Therapy, Sports Massage, Joint Mobilisation and Muscle Activation – a new and amazingly powerful treatment which has staggering, immediate affects.
“I assure you that if Dan is given a body suffering in any way from the traumas of sport, he will have you diagnosed, and be working on the problem within the first 30 minutes of your appointment, and you WILL leave after the 1st hour already aware of improvement.” – DP
You’ll be treated by highly experienced and skilled therapists who have a deep understanding of the mechanics of running and know what is required to help you get back on track. They will quickly identify what is causing your problems, ensure that your running technique is correct and not exacerbating any further issues and will soon give you the green light to get your running shoes back on, sometimes after just one session.
“I’m a Personal Trainer and athlete/runner and have been seeing Swindon Sports Therapy for many years now for both myself and for referring clients. They’ve always been very personable, approachable and most importantly knowledgeable. Their healing hands have sorted out many a niggle and more and they always try to get to the root cause of the problem rather than just treating the symptoms. I’ve always had good feedback from clients that have seen them. Great professional Sports Therapists.” – GB
