At some time or another most of us will suffer from back pain or other muscular-skeletal injuries sustained through sport, or just daily life.Often these injuries are a result of muscular imbalance or weakness – and long gone are the days where bed rest is recommended. Nowadays in fact, it is quite the opposite, the advice now being to keep moving as much as you’re able and stay active.
Our trainers have worked with all kinds of sporting injuries, from an Achilles tendon rupture to everyday lower back pain. Manyof our clients that start out with other goals often end up receiving training for old injuries that were never addressed in the past. Back pain can sometimes be caused by poor posture as a result of being overweight, so again weight loss can help to put an end to on-going aches and pains.
Oakfields PT have also forged close links with Bristol Physio (www.bristolphysio.com) and we work with them to help clients with injuries get back to their best as soon as possible. This relationship creates a very effective bridge between treatment and training and ensures the client gets the best possible service.
