Having met Andy Strong from Fundamentally Fit I was most impressed with his personal journey towards health and fitness. This means he is uniquely positioned to relate to his clients and partner with them on their journey.
We have been working with Foot Mechanix for a number of years. Karen Knightly and her team have an great understanding of the value that a combined Physio and Podiatry approach can have for patients with challenging problems.
We really believe in the value of community and the importance of creating healthy and challenging environments for people of all ages. Our sponsorship of Weybridge Rowing Club is a reflection of this.
Rachel Kornberg and the team are doing an amazing job with rowers of all ages and abilities to the point where Weybridge Rowing Club has become the one to watch. Having experienced rowers in our team helps us in our other aim of helping club members stay injury free and so doing help them to reach their sporting goals.
In simple terms a muscle imbalance in when muscles (or groups of muscles) attached to either side of a joint (that usually work against one another to control the normal position and movement of the joint) do not have equal strength, length and/or activity. This results in the part of the body effected being pulled out of its normal position.
Typically, treatment involves direct mobilisation of the joints involved, most often the top 3 vertebra of the neck. This is combined with Myofascial (muscles and soft tissue) mobilisation and specific muscle strengthening and specific postural alignment retraining.
This is why, in order to be truly effective, the Physio has to have a good understanding of the inter-relation of these systems and be able to treat accordingly. This is also why any approach that just focuses only on treating the symptoms is unlikely to be effective in the medium to long term.
