ProActive Sports Therapy

With the tag line of “Let’s Get You Moving” it seeks to do just that, whether for the sporting athlete, to those just wanting to regain movement.

After graduating the University of Bath with a 2.1 grading classification I have decided to create my own business as a Sports Therapist to begin in my profession. Many people misinterpret the role of a Sports Therapist. We cover those who suffer from a continual problematic issue, to the regular gym-goer, recreational runner, up to the semi or professional athlete. Even individuals who are just s

📍NEW CLINIC LOCATION📍

Alongside the clinic situated in the heart of Pangbourne, I have now increased the scope of my work, being offered the opportunity to practice at Bradfield College in their Sports Complex!

Bradfield College is a very renowned private school, accompanied with its own state-of-art sports complex. It boasts unrivalled facilities in the area, from a strength and conditioning performance gym, sports hall, 25-meter swimming pool, grass and astro-turf football pitches, a Golf course, and a Tennis Centre with Indoor hard and Outdoor clay courts. It’s got it all!

I’m beyond excited and feel extremely fortunate to be approached for this opportunity! Time to get the head down, and keep pushing everyday! 🙌🏼

FEEDBACK SERIES... ✍🏼

In my upcoming posts I’ll be uploading comments and feedback from a variety of my patients regarding the work I do/ have done. Working in such a confidential environment, it’s always extremely hard to showcase treatment results, and rehabilitation successes. I post little about my week-to-week practice as I prefer to focus solely on treating my patients and solving injuries, than taking my phone out during treatments and doing it for the socials.

However, keep following the next few posts to find out more about my practice and results with comments from my patients. If there are any patients that would like to send in their feedback, and are happy for me to share, than I would absolutely love to hear from you. Just email or message me. Every bit of feedback and success story goes a long way.

Keep following! Stay safe! 🙌🏼

LOCKDOWN 3.0 UPDATE 🔒⬇️:

In accordance with guidance from the Government and my practicing Federation, I am allowed to remain open through the current restrictions and continue treating patients.

It is stated, “Personal care services provided for essential medical and health needs, which cannot be deferred, may continue. For example, treatments for a diagnosed health condition or injury that is currently causing severe pain or mobility issues, or severely impacting quality of life.”

From the beginning I have adopted strict procedures and protocols that my patients have to abide by, implementing further pre-treatment screening measures than those I am instructed to complete. Those who don’t pass these screening measures, or fail to complete them are turned away.

Maintaining a COVID-secure environment to practice out of is paramount. As a professional therapist we are drilled in virus control methods to stop cross contamination of patients, more so now than ever. However, if any of my patients want to know any further details, or have any concerns, please just get in touch!

I look forward to seeing you soon!

Since returning to work, I have personally had the attitude of working as hard as I can to regain my patients back to their optimum health after having such a long-period without treatments. I’m one who seeks there to be positive opportunities and outcomes in tougher times.

It’s been a year to be relentless when I have been able to work. I’ve worked hard, and have been approached to be part of two incredible projects, expending my practice bases even further. Big news coming in the next few weeks! Exciting times ahead! 🙌🏼

⬇️🔒LOCKDOWN 2.0. UPDATE ⬇️🔒

On Saturday 31st October, the Prime Minister announced that due to the rapid rise in COVID-19 cases, a range of national restrictions will take effect across the whole of England from Thursday 5th November for a minimum of 4 weeks.

Initially, as happened earlier in the year the belief was that I would be forced to close and postpone treatment to patients for this period. However, finally after greater clarity from the government, and consistent lobbying from my federation, I’m over the moon to announce I can remain open, and continue the delivery of care to my patients.

Anyone who has contacted me within the last few days, I’ll get back to you in due course. As you can imagine, there’s been a lot going on over the last few days! Any patients who I have postponed/ rearranged for this week I will contact you and place you as priorities for available treatment spaces over the coming weeks.

This is the best news possible, and I can’t wait to continue the best care I can. See you all again very soon. 🙌🏼

🎉 WE ARE BACK!!! 🎉⁣

After nearly 16 weeks, I can finally return to practice in the clinic, and I will be on Thursday 16th July, and Friday 17th July. ⁣

To any previous patients, I’ll be working methodically through my patient database across the weekend and I will contact you to make your appointment. But feel free to contact me in the meantime if you are wanting to get booked in as soon as possible. I will be taking new patients on as well, so if you’d like to make an enquiry, just drop me a message. ⁣

If anyone has any worries, feel free to message me if you have any questions about COVID-19 procedures/ protocols that are in place. Having studied all the latest information out there, I have worked hard on new screening measures that will occur before every appointment, these will include temperature checks, and Pulse Oximetry readings.

Beyond excited to get back to it, even in the new “normal”. See you all soon! 😅

🦠 CORONAVIRUS STUDY⁣ 🦠

I’ve just taken my Coronavirus Test for the I.C.L. and Ipsos MORI study, as I was randomly selected to voluntarily participate to help the government measure the prevalence of COVID-19 across the country.⁣

I’ve been lucky enough to never need a test or have any symptoms at all, but wanted to do my bit! The test is straight forward, so make sure you get tested if you have any symptoms at all! ⁣

I understand the changes to the lockdown can be confusing, but make sure you keep yourself informed. The transmission rate is still at a reasonable level, and the longer it stays at that level, the longer someone in a sector like I’m in, can’t work! So follow the guidelines/ rules for yourself, and others, whilst we continue to slowly emerge out of the lockdown. ⁣

Hopefully, it’s not too much longer until I can practice and see my patients again!

WE ARE NEARLY BACK... JUST NOT YET!⁣ 😅

To All My Patients,⁣

Following today’s government announcement, my sector has been confirmed to be one of those to remain closed until it is safe to do so. My federation has made clear that face-to-face and close contact appointments are still prohibited. ⁣

But don’t worry, our time will come! I’ve been working hard on new procedures for when we are back open, and have stockpiled the relevant P.P.E. so we can hit the ground running and are COVID secure!⁣

I can’t wait for the day I can return, and I sincerely look forward to seeing you all! As already mentioned, please contact me if you have any questions, or need some advice. I will contact you to rearrange proposed appointments, and again if anything changes to allow us to come back sooner, I’ll be in touch. ⁣

See you all very soon!

SWISS BALL CORE CONDITIONING WORKOUT⁣⁣ 🏋🏻‍♂️
⁣⁣
Your Core is the foundation to everything! A conditioned Core of all the musculature groups associated with it can reduce the possibility of injuries and improve sporting performance. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
I have used a Swiss Ball for all the people I have seen doing Quarantine home workouts for something a little bit different. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
The exercises are:⁣⁣
1. Swiss Ball Crunches⁣⁣
2. Swiss Ball Bridge⁣⁣
3. Swiss Ball Pass Through⁣⁣
4. Swiss Ball Side Plank (with arm movement)⁣⁣
5. Swiss Ball Abs Roll Out⁣⁣
6. Swiss Ball Plank⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Apart from the normal Swiss Ball Plank (hold for 30 seconds), complete each exercise for 15 repetitions, twice over. Focus on engaging through the Core (belly-button in), and your breathing through each repetition. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Any questions, send me a direct message!⁣

STRETCHES TO RELIEVE STRESS AND ANXIETY⁣ 🧘🏻‍♂️

Now more than ever, the uncertain times we live in will undoubtedly create a lot of stress and anxiety about the future ahead. ⁣

The body deals with this state in many ways, but psychological/ mental anxiety has a huge impact on physiological/ bodily stresses and tension, which place themselves predominantly onto musculature throughout the body. ⁣

We are all unique, having a tendency to hold stress and tension in different ways, and to different regions of the body. Not everyone is the same. But the most common area I have seen my patients succumb to stress and tension is the Neck, Shoulders, and Mid-Back (Thoracic Region). ⁣

I have put together some simple stretches that can be completed daily that will combat the stress placed in these regions. Follow the flow in the order set. Hold each stretch for 30 seconds, twice over, using deep breathing techniques to develop your position in each stretch. ⁣

Any questions, just drop me a direct message! ⁣

- Hypervolt⁣⁣⁣⁣
- Trigger Point Foam Roller⁣⁣⁣⁣
