Seeking advice from a chartered physiotherapist

No one can doubt the beneficial effects of exercise – for instance improved stamina, weight control and better resistance to illness.
However, few sports people avoid some form of injury. National estimates based on work by the Sports Council and Medical Care Research Unit of the University of Sheffield suggests that in 1990 alone, 19.3 million incidents resulted in new injuries with 1.4 million of these resulting in time off work, the average time being 6 days. From the professional footballer with the broken leg to the recreational runner with a calf strain, the questions asked are the same.
If you have any concerns about an injury, or there is little or no improvement, seek early advice.
Parks can provide its services to a wide area, including those in Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire, and Huntingdonshire.
