I live my life by the simple mantra of “Movement as Medicine”. Whether that’s through the restoration of movement after an injury, or making a movement more efficient for a performance benefit, I'll assist you in restoring your best mobility.
I grew up competing at an elite level in gymnastics, and later in distance running. I know the demands that sport and exercise, especially at the elite level, can place on the body. Throughout my athletic career I have had my fair share of injuries. I understand the importance of managing pain, restoring function and gaining strength/mobility in order to achieve a healthier and happier life.Take a Look At My Bio >

RUNNING! It's a wonderfully addictive sport and as far as km's go you can feel like a kid in a candy store who's saved a tonne of pocket money. We discover new trails and parks, run longer/faster/harder and it almost becomes a game of 'running roulette': how far can we go and still tolerate the impact?
Maybe not straight away but, inevitably, we fall victim to injury and niggles at some point to varying degrees which can be multifaceted in cause.
BUT How do we bounce back safely and effectively without running the risk of re-injury? What does a 'Return to Running' program look like?
Here are my thoughts....
If you are a runner, inevitably someone has said something along the lines of:
"Oh No! Your poor joints. How do your knees hold up?!"
We can often dismiss this, but the question does not go unwarranted....
There IS a knee condition that is close to my heart and can side line you from running which is called patellofemoral pain or RUNNERS KNEE. It doesn't mean you are going to have "bad knees when you're old" but if you ignore this condition it can kneecap your training for months (pun intended) and take the buzz out of your training. Been there.
Here is the low down!
