Sports Care Patient Testimonials
This year I determined to run a half-marathon. I trained conscientiously, but as my distances increased so did a pain, which started out as a niggle in my ankle, until it affected my whole leg. A week before the Big Day I had to stop running altogether and so I missed my target and was bitterly disappointed.
After an enforced rest period of a few weeks I started anew with my sights on another local half-marathon, but this time, fearing a repeat of what happened before. I went to see Robin.
He soon found the cause of my problem. It wasn’t my leg, it was my back! In that first session he treated my back and taught me exercises to do at home. I even found I could touch my toes – the first time for many months. I left my appointment feeling optimistic and very pleased. The next day I started my training regime, and to my delight found that not only could I run without a twinge in my leg, but that I could go faster and further!
One more session with Robin consolidated my previous treatment and not long after that the half-marathon day arrived. I’m pleased to report that not only did I get round with no pain, but I finished having done a personal best. Thank you Robin!

“I was training for the Windsor Half Marathon, and picked up an injury in my foot, which left me hobbling around work, and not able to train. It was in fact extremely painful. I visited Karen, and after one session, walked out of the surgery, started training again and completed the Half Marathon” “All the best.”
