Do you want to get the best out of your physio session?
Running is the simplest and most effective way of getting fit, relieve stress, lose weight, increase your confidence, but this has to be done with care. Here are some tips from the senior Physiotherapist Jadwiga at Therapy First “The Physio Clinic” for injured runners.
Our expert at Therapy First advises injured runners should bring to their physio appointment:
It’s always beneficial for a physio to look at your cross training and training pattern.
Injury can take place at any time any place anywhere, so it’s useful for our physio to see how the injury occurred.
Record a Video:
Record a decent footage of your training session, possibly from behind, side and the front, this can help a great deal.
Make your treatment experience a pleasant one by dressing in comfortable clothing,
shorts and a sports bra / crop top (for women). This will allow comfortable musculoskeletal assessment.
We always suggest you record your exercise programme so it’s easier to remember.
Bring your Orthotics (insoles) if you use these in your running shoes and your running shoes. Just by looking at the wear pattern we can learn a lot about you run.
