Rob’s maintenance physio
As we hit Autumn Marathon season, runners and non-runners alike can benefit from regular Physiotherapy sessions to keep on top of any aches or pains.
This year one of our Physio team, John, took part in the London Marathon and went through the same training ups and downs as many of our clients:
“Marathon training can be a bumpy road for most, and speaking to some of the more seasoned marathoners we have treated lately it seems almost a given that there will be a few niggles along the way, especially as the mileage starts to peak.
There have been a few times where I've been grateful for the Anti-gravity treadmill (yes, there are perks of working at a specialist Physio clinic!), as my legs have started to complain after some of the longer runs.
I’ve also made sure to have regular Physio sessions with one of my colleagues, for a monthly loosen-up and MOT”
Here at Cornwall Physio these regular loosen-ups are known as ‘maintenance Physio’, and they really are the best way we know of keeping any niggles or chronic injuries at bay, so that runners can maintain consistent training and reach their full potential.
Maintenance Physio is Not Just for Runners
People generally come to see us once a month (or every 4-6 weeks), once they have finished a course of Physiotherapy treatment and this helps to stop aches or pains coming back.
It’s not just our runners who love maintenance physio but we also see many of our active patients with anything from chronic back pain to arthritic joints who just want to keep on top of things so that they can enjoy living their lives without constant aches and pains.
