If you are counting down the days and weeks to your skiing holiday, you might be thinking about how best to prepare your body to get the most out of your trip. The team at Keith James Physiotherapy can help you to get ready to hit the slopes.
As well as treating the injuries that happen during the ski trip, physiotherapists are really good at preparing you for your holiday. They can help you with niggling back issues, which can get worse on hard-packed snow. And when the snow is deep, catching your skis in the snow can cause knee ligament issues to be exacerbated. Why not make an appointment to see one of our physios and sort out any pain or stiffness before you head off.
Physiotherapists find that preparing for a ski holiday by investing in fitness, strength and endurance training can help you to avoid succumbing to common skiing injuries. Why not book a series of Personal Training sessions with our Personal Trainer, Kirstie. She can help you develop the flexibility, power and balance that will allow to you move well on the snow.
And when you return from your skiing trip, don’t forget to book yourself in for a relaxing massage to help with the aches and bruises you picked up along the way.

In the summer month’s we certainly see an increase in the number of ladies who visit the the clinic with foot, ankle, shin and calf pain.
One of the reasons is the change from enclosed shoes in the cooler months to flipflops and strappy sandals when the weather warms up. Although very appropriate for warmer weather (if we’re that lucky), these types of shoes give less control and stability to the foot and as a consequence muscles in the calf and foot have to work that little bit harder. This can lead to conditions like Achilles tendonitis, plantar fasciitis and Morton’s neuroma or just good old fashioned painful feet.
It may be entirely appropriate to wear summer shoes in summer but have a little think about your feet and try for at least some periods, to wear a more controlling pair of shoes interspersed with the flip flops.
If the problem is limiting you, pop in and have an assessment with one of the physio team.
If you’ve taken a battering on the court, our specialist massage therapist can help release and realign your body.
It’s that time of year again; the sun is shining, there is an abundance of fresh Strawberries and Cream and of course Tennis. Now we aren’t all lucky enough to play at Queens Club but our massage therapists can help you improve your muscle flexibility and work out any aches and pain to get you back on the court. Sports massage helps release, realign and re-balance the muscles and ligaments of the body and help relieve pain or discomfort caused by over use. Regular massage can also help to prevent injuries on the court.
