How To Get Back To Training After Injury
There’s a big gap between injury and full fitness and after injury it’s common to go through your rehab but still experience limited range of motion or pain when you move.
If this sounds familiar then we can help…
What Happens When We Get Injured
If you’ve been unlucky enough to experience a sports injury then you’ll have experienced your body projecting you by producing pain and perhaps altering your movement so that your body can heal.
After experiencing an injury the best thing you can do is get your injury diagnosed and follow the medical advice for recovery and rehab.
A big problem though, is that after the injury’s healing time has passed (the time it takes tissues to heal), pain can still persist and our movement may not have returned to ‘normal’
This is where we come in…
How We Can Help
Here at Sport Function we pick things up after the initial stages of rehab, focusing on the specific skills you want to perform better and building your movement back up.
We look at the things you do well and things you don’t do so well and put a program together for you to help you get your movement back to where you want it to be.
Our research-driven approach is based in skill development, biomechanics and pain science and when delivered through our unique coaching method, provides a complete route to help you get from rehab back to full fitness.
After assessing you move we will create a program of exercises for you to perform daily or a part of your workout or warm-up routine.
Our unique approach has helped our clients overcome a wide array of musculoskeletal injuries and conditions like:
- Shin Splints
- Runner’s Knee
- ACL/MCL surgery post-op
- Gastroc Release surgery post-op
- ‘Flat Foot’ reconstructive surgery post-op
- Lower Back Surgery post-op
- Non-specific Lower Back Pain
- Shoulder impingement
- …and much more!
How we helped trail runner Cameron avoid his usual training niggles and get race-ready…
“Finished up an amazing 12 week program with @sportfunction and even though this picture shows some great visual improvements, more importantly I feel like I’m running so much better. Running feels easier and a feel like I’m floating along trails right now.”
“3 months of training has lead me to my first big race this year in 10 days time. The first time I’ve got myself to the start line without a major setback”

L5/S1 Fracture (Lower Back)
“After 5 months off due to a fractured L5/S1 I sought Petes help for some form of help/rehabilitation training. Had a 90-minute session with Pete today and he had me walking pain free by the end of the session. This has NOT happened in 5 months and I’m elated and very impressed. He was very knowledgeable and even took the time to explain the technicalities to my PT and in simpler terms for me.”
– Joanna Murphy
Post-Hip Surgery Rehabilitation
“Fantastic bespoke rehabilitation sessions post hip operation for arthritis. I have gone from believing I would never be able to ride my horse again without significant pain to real optimism that I WILL be able to ride pain free again! I can’t tell you how amazing that feels. Thanks so much Pete!”
– Fiona Lewis
Ankle Injury Rehabilitation
“I started seeing Pete after sustaining ankle ligament damage when playing rugby.
Working on increasing ankle range of movement, foot movement mechanics and stability combined with some additional hip work my ankle has improved significantly and I have returned to playing rugby thanks to Pete’s help.”
– Katie Davies, Physiotherapist
Groin Injury Rehabilitation
“I’ve had a history of groin and hip flexor injuries and tried many different rehab strategies, with limited success.
Amongst other things, Pete designed a warm-up routine that targets the area of my previous injuries and have kept me injury free through a pretty tough training year (which seems like a fair trade).”
– Gareth Revell, Touch Player & Coach (Cardiff Raptors & Wales)
“I have started working with Pete following a physio referral for a list of mobility issues that have led to difficulty performing pain free squats and lunges in particular.
After just a couple of sessions with Pete, he has assessed my movement and identified what causes the pain and I have been able to perform a weighted bar squat pain free for the first time in years!”
– Kayleigh Rosewell
