Anna and David both work with injured clients. These clients might be suffering with overuse injuries from their running or back pain from sitting down all day in an office.
Whatever is causing your pain, it is important to take a positive, active approach. David and Anna have the experience to know exactly what exercise programmes are appropriate whilst understanding the problems that you face as a result of your pain and being able to help you deal with these too.
The majority of overuse injuries are caused by repetitive movements coupled with poor mechanics, so they will approach your injury from this perspective.
“I have degenerative disc disease and limited mobility. Anna has worked closely with me for 10 months to develop exercise routines to increase my core stability and to mobilise and strengthen muscles which have been dormant for some time. As a result I feel much stronger and have become very aware of posture for the first time. Anna treats me holistically by ensuring she knows about my day to day life and monitors my levels of pain closely, changing exercises accordingly; she also offers help with pain management by giving me relaxation exercises.
Anna is very sympathetic to clients in pain and gentle in her approach, important for chronic pain sufferers who often feel vulnerable. Regular contact with Anna is very important to me, her input helps me to remain positive and focused, I feel she genuinely invests in my progress. Most importantly exercising gives me the sense that I am helping myself, that my recovery is in my own hands”.
“Before working with David I was finding it increasingly difficult to walk downstairs without holding on for fear of falling due to knee surgery I had over twenty years ago. My GP had told me that he couldn’t do much more for me and that I definitely shouldn’t run again."
