How To Get Back To Training After Injury
Getting back to training after injury or surgery can take time and getting your rehab right is an important part of the process.
Unfortunately there a few common misconceptions that leave many people going round in circles with their rehab and stop them from achieving long-term success.
A big problem is that many rehab ‘treatments’ are focused around short-term fixes – a treatment can feel great short-term but the results often wear off after a few days.
Quick fixes are always appealing (and sometimes an important part of the process) but working with pain that has been present for a long time often requires a more sophisticated and personalised approach.
How Pain Works
Unfortunately pain is far more complicated than just “tight muscles”.
As well as physiology and structure (muscles, tissues etc) pain can be influenced by biomechanics (how you move) and even psychology – what you believe about movement and pain, and what you fear.
Comprehensive treatment of pain starts with the person and considers all factors that could be contributing to that person’s pain experience.
The good news is that once you start working on the right things you can start moving in the right direction with your rehab.
Our unique approach is based on a combination of coaching, skill development and pain-science and is designed to help you rebuild your movement and regain confidence so you can get back to training.
Our approach is centred around YOU and along with full biomechanical assessment of your movement (every movement is an assessment!) we provide you with a full set of exercises that will help you get back to training, building physical skill and confidence every step of the way.
How It Works
After your free initial consultation we’ll conduct a full movement assessment live in-person or online via Zoom.
We completed 100% of our work online between March and November 2020 and have seen the same great rehab results with our clients.
Our process will help you:
- Understand pain on a deeper level
- Discover your ‘bad’ movement habits
- Learn how to build new ‘good’ movement habits
- Improve strength, range of motion, stability
- Increase your confidence around movement
…and much more.
Once you’ve had your initial assessment you’ll know exactly what to do to avoid the common rehab mistakes and get back to training in as short a time as possible.

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!”
