Rehab through movement
The biggest criticism of Personal Trainers seems to be that we try to be physiotherapists. I like to stick to what I’m good at and that is movement.
There are a couple of key things to note when recovering from an injury.
Firstly pain is in the brain and injuries are in the body
We’d like the former to be an accurate indication of the latter but that’s not always the case.
Pain and discomfort are not the same
We will work through discomfort along the way but we want to stop when it’s painful.
With any injury, the main goal is to create an environment for the body to heal itself. That’s why the exercises a Physio would prescribe you are often targeting areas around the injury but not the injury itself. We want to be strong all around the area and facilitate the body’s natural recovery. That can be fairly difficult for an area that is used a lot.
How can we load the legs and get them stronger without putting strain on the knee joint? The solution will be specific to you and how you move.
“I can now train 5 times a week, and I’m not injured. I haven’t been injured for a year. I can walk down stairs in heels without using the hand rail, and I can balance on one leg on the kitchen worktop while getting the spare coffee down from the high shelf (its the little things!)…”

I can help teach you to feel the difference between pain and discomfort and help your body learn whether the pain is phantom or whether an injury is present. I can work with your physiotherapist/chiropractor/osteopath and if you haven’t seen one but need one I can help refer one for you.
