Runner’s Corner

This page will provide you with the knowledge to improve your distance running times and reduce your risk of developing common running injuries. If you are currently injured, you should see me as a matter of urgency in order to ensure you heal correctly and follow the most suitable rehab protocol before returning to running. With prevention being the aim ahead of cure, an Injury Prevention Screen and regular Sports Massages are excellent ways of ensuring you can run injury free.


To book an appoint for an Injury Prevention Screen, Sports Massage or if you are currently injured, call me on 07768 660077 or Contact Me with details of your symptoms.
