Assess the movements and strength elements required to run well, in conjunction with video analysis, to improve self awareness and highlight run technique areas to improve. A video report and individualised flexibility and core program, along with cues and strategies to improve run form, are all part of the package to help you run your very best and avoid recurrent injuries.
Flexibility, strength and control issues that most commonly result in swimming injuries, we can highlight areas of concern to prevent injuries before they happen or identify why a swimmers struggles with recurrent injuries. The screening is used to devise a land-based program specifically for each swimmer and will reduce ongoing niggles or recurrent pain.
Parys is by far the best sports physiotherapist I’ve seen. She has helped me on many occasions and her treatments have allowed me to race competitively when I would otherwise have been sidelined. She is extremely knowledgable and very thorough in her work.
Parys has been an enduring supporter to me over the years through too many injuries to count, including acute and chronic Achilles injuries to a broken collarbone. She is empowering, passionate, and has an overwhelming 'can do' attitude. Her knowledges as a physio, combined with her background as a fun loving professional triathlete makes her the ideal person to help athletes get stronger and faster, to manage niggles and to be able to race injury free for longer.
Parys comes with a mountain of international experience, specifically in the area of diagnosis and injury prevention. it comes across immediately that she loves what she does and has genuine concern for her patients, helping them along their journey. Truly an expert in her field.
I have recently been recovering from a pelvic stress fracture and as a professional Ironman athlete it was really important to me that I could return to training safely and healthily without risking a relapse in the injury. I sought advice from Parys and she guided me as I picked the training back up. As a professional athlete herself, she was able to combine her expansive physiotherapist knowledge with a depth of understanding of the demands of professional racing and the emotional stress of injury. She was always firm with her advice so I was never tempted to do too much. Parys gave me the support and advice I needed to enable me to return to racing with confidence. She is always keen to learn and increase her knowledge so advice is up to date and specific. She was never to busy to help. I can’t recommend her enough.
