On the occasions when an injury persists for longer than you expect, or if it hurts more than you can stand, a a sports therapist is most likely the right person to see.
A sports therapist is dedicated to returning you to your usual activities as soon as possible. They will, most likely, identify causal factors in your spine and posture, gait and flexibility, that are causing injury to recur.
They promote the fastest healing of injured tissues, so you can get back into it as soon as possible, often better than ever.
My friend and colleague, Lee Lawrenson, holds a wealth of experience from his training and work in the field. He is located in Penwortham and Preston, and is busy treating people all week, every week, with soft tissue and joint injuries, therapeutic massage and rehabilitation.
