Cornwall Physio for Runners

At Cornwall Physio we love to help runners to keep doing the thing that they love, run!. Which means a life free from constant niggles, where you don’t have to worry about bothering the doctor, and can enjoy running, without the fear of injuries holding you back. 


When something like a sore knee, tight calves, or a painful Achilles - we know it’s very tempting to leave it and hope it’ll simply “go away on it’s own” with time and rest… Or even that you can ignore it and fit in a few more training session - but that’s usually not the case, and often the pain ends up worse than it was when it first started.


It’s very easy to reach into the back of the cupboard for the painkillers, take a few painkillers and carry on running, but this will do nothing but mask the pain instead.


You might be feeling confused, even sceptical because you’ve sought advice from your GP, or a Physio in the past, and nothing they seemed to say or do helped. Perhaps they just told you to rest until the pain went away, or otherwise they didn’t really seem to understand running.


Can you relate?

If that sounds like you, you’re not alone. At Cornwall Physio we hear this all the time… In fact people who come to see us have often:


  • - Thought the pain would go away on it’s own - but it didn’t

  • - Seen their GP, only to be told to “rest” and “take some painkillers” 

  • - Been put on the usual 6-12 week waiting list after being referred to see an NHS Physio, then when after waiting so long to be seen - were given a sheet of exercises, which did nothing to help you get back to running

  • - Tried a few YouTube exercises, but those exercises either didn’t do a thing or aggravated the pain making it 10 times worse because they weren’t specific to you and your problem.

  • - Thought may be you should rest because it had become so uncomfortable to run, but all that did was make the area even more stiff and tight

  • - Been told by friends at your running club or group that they’ve “had exactly the same problem” - making it easy to accept it’s “just part of being a runner”

Any of those sound familiar?

If any of these have happened to you - we would love to help you by inviting you to book a call with our lead Physio and Running Specialist, Lou Nicholettos. The fact that you’ve tried any or all of these things already, like many people we see, is actually a GOOD THING because when you know what doesn’t work - you are closer to finding the thing that does!


Please email us on info@cornwallphysio.co.uk if you would like to get some solid advice. We can either give you a call at a convenient time, or Lou can answer your questions via email. Our goal is to help you make the right decision about what to do next for the best, so that you can get back to running as soon as possible.


In 2017 we also added state-of-the art 3D motion analysis at The Run Lab. This new facility at Cornwall Physio allows us to help you to run faster, prevent injuries happening in the first place and discover the route cause of any recurrent or on-going problems. Get in touch, let us know about your running goals, and we’ll help you decide whether a session at The Run Lab would help you.
