When beginning a plan it is really useful to have a physio movement screening. This helps us to ensure we are putting a plan in place that meets your needs most effectively. For instance, if you have tight hamstrings and posterior chain, obtaining a good aero position on the bike is going to be difficult, and knowing this will change how we would structure your training.
We use the services of PhysioSynergy Ltd which is a Chartered Physiotherapy and Sports Rehabilitation Service located in Nottingham, UK.
PhysioSynergy is owned by Claire Howard, Chartered Physiotherapist, a Specialist in Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy with over 13 years of clinical experience, and all clients will be dealing with Claire.
Claire is committed to providing patients with an exceptional level of care using highly specialised and comprehensive assessment skills, expert diagnostic clinical reasoning and evidence-based treatments to alleviate pain, restore function and aid rehabilitation.
A patient may only need to be seen for assessment and advice or a longer treatment programme may be required – all of which will be discussed in the Initial Assessment and a treatment plan formulated which specifically targets the patient’s needs.
Each follow-up session will begin with a reassessment to ensure progression is being made and treatments adapted in line with the clinical findings to aid a speedy recovery.
As many of our clients are not local, Claire has devised online conference call based protocols for initial assessments and screenings. From this, she can advise on a plan of action which may be various exercises to rectify issues, or if a more hands-on, detailed treatment will be required, she can advise on where you can access this if you are not local enough to Nottingham.
