Treat. Prevent. Perform.
Over the years, I have developed a special interest and set of skills to help athletes (we are all athletes!) optimise their performance, recover from injury and develop pre-habilitation programmes.
My approach is to design treatments and management plans tailored to the very specific needs of the athlete, in partnership with the athlete. This specifically involves:
Mechanics: teaching the foundation of functional movement principles and reviewing specifically with the athlete. I specifically look at the interaction between the athlete’s technique and mechanical load on the whole body.
Movement control: help the athlete to optimise their movement control through individualised skill sets. I specifically look at optimising the technique of the athlete in order to optimise the loading of the body in a controlled manner.
Strength and Power training: looking at specific skill sets which can be easily integrated into the athlete training programme to optimise the functional movement principles.
Return from injury: specific treatments and advice covering movement control, strength training and technique to help the athlete return to competition and prevent re-injury.
Programming: help to identify periodisation for pre-season and in-season training loads.
I like to work closely with the athlete so my input optimises the athlete’s training sessions, performance and helps with injury risk reduction.
I take the time to share my knowledge with the athlete as I believe empowering the athlete is key in their success.
