After persistent back problems caused by a rugby injury and having seen physiotherapists with varying degrees of success I contacted Swindon Sports Therapy and arranged an appointment. Their approach and explanation of what was wrong and how it would be treated inspired confidence, and after the course of treatment, my back is at its best for years.
What Would You Give To Do Triathlons Pain Free?
Triathlon is a tough sport period. As such it’s participants are prone to many overuse injuries, not to mention the odd tweak from ‘incidents’ on the bike. What if we told you that over use conditions don’t exist? Controversial maybe but that’s our experience of treating triathletes.
A better way of looking at overuse conditions would be to say “you have a condition that is caused by the overuse of certain muscles that is a reflection of your current bio-mechanics.” Or more simply you’re body can’t currently deal with amount of work your putting it through. Now you might think it would take weeks maybe months of training to change this and how you work. But sometimes it takes a matter of minutes!
As part of our Progressive Sport Therapy treatment this it what we regularly see. It is possible, with the right knowledge and techniques, to change movement patterns that have been there for years in a matter of moments. What does that mean in real terms? Less pain training and competing. In fact usually none, well, other than what is perfectly normal in such a grueling event.
“These guys know their onions! After several Ironmans and too many marathons I was looking for someone to activate underused muscle groups and to help me feel less creaky overall. After sessions with BST I felt great and left with a whole new understanding of the human body. They shared a lot of new and interesting insights and gave me a series of treatment that really worked. Recommended.” SC – Ironman
The best thing about the way we work is that you can carry on training. We may have to modify things a bit depending on the state of you, but our goal is always to keep you working as closely as possible to your planned training schedule.
“As an ultra-runner I approached Swindon Sports Therapy with much trepidation, expecting the usual advice to stop running silly distances and I wouldn’t be complaining of injuries. Instead, I was met with complete acceptance of ‘what I do’ combined with consistent ‘work’ on the source of my injuries/complaints. I couldn’t recommend Swindon Sports Therapy highly enough. It has been a joy to finally run pain-free again.” – AH – Ultra-Runner
