Patient: Jo had a trapped nerve which nearly prevented her from doing her first 70.3 triathlon.
Jo has been a patient of mine for a number of years having had a few running injuries. She came to me with acute neck and a trapped nerve a few weeks before her first ever triathlon – a half ironman. She was devastated that she wouldn’t be able to continue training; she could hardly move her neck at all! Months of training and commitment seemed to be dashed.
After calmly working out that it was due to a long open water swimming session battling with a tight shoulder/wetsuit we quickly sorted out treatment, rehab and training plan. I even altered her swim pattern. A few sessions and lots of guidance and we achieved full neck movement, painfree arm and continued training.
Having done the same distance event myself I could guide Jo on many levels and Boom! She nailed it. When I receive that finisher photograph it made my day.
Patient: Danny plays LaCrosse. He kept hurting his knee and had to cut down his training and sometimes had to come off when he was needed on pitch.
When we looked at his knee it was very painful but wasn’t injured. It was being overstrained. His strength in his hips was poor so his knee wasn’t supported during fast turns.
He thought he’d damaged a ligament but when we showed him how poor his balance was he realised that he needed to be stronger. We sent him a video of his exercises so he knew he was doing them correctly.
Suggesting some orthotics and a strengthening plan was all it took to get to full capability – and probably even better than before!
Patient: Graham Knight snapped ligaments in his shoulder during enduro off road motorcycling.
“I am participating in a sport that is really for the younger generation, enduro off road motorcycling, I have ridden across Morroco, the length of Portugal and through Tuscany and Umbria all off road and competed in off road events in Wales , Yorkshire and the North East…
Lindsey and Bridge Physio have through that period kept my body maintained and repaired, with them it would not be possible. The attention to detail, the simple and understandable explanation of your individualised treatment and the hands on approach is second to none. As I write this I am on my way to Portugal to do 5 days off road riding,this is only 5 weeks after snapping the ligaments in my shoulder. Three weeks ago I would have not thought it would have been possible.Thanks to Lindsey I am on my way. Thanks to Lindsey and all at Bridge for there kind and caring attention . I am sure that with there help I will still be able to do this when I am 70.”
