Stronger... fitter... faster!
When it comes to setting targets in sports performance, we think this is a pretty good starting point - and the highly experienced team at Next Step have the expertise to help you achieve to the highest possible level. One of the core roles of a sports physiotherapist, as defined by the International Federation of Sports Physical Therapy, is to develop performance and skills. Our job is not just to treat your injuries and move on.
You might not consider asking your GP for a referral to physiotherapy to help improve your 10k run time or your golf swing but, surprising as this may seem, that IS something that falls well within our remit. Many Next Step clients initially come to us for help with injury management but our aim is that they don't just make a successful return to their chosen sport - we want them to bounce back much better than they were before.
We use measurable, objective and sports specific outcomes to monitor progress throughout the treatment phase. Then we turn to tried and tested "return to play" methods similar to the ones used at top Premiership Rugby and professional football clubs.
Now do you want to know the best news? You will receive the same attention to detail and standard of care that Keith, Tim and the team have delivered to a multitude of amateur, professional, international and Olympic athletes over the years.
