How To Get Back To Training After Injury

post injury rehab specialists
We bridge the gap between physio and full fitness

There is a big gap between injury and full fitness and after injury it’s common to have good rehab initially (ie. from a physio) but still feel like you lack strength, range of motion and confidence in your movement.

If this sounds familiar then we can help.

We help you find the missing pieces in your rehab and help you get back to moving, training and performing at your best.

Step 1 – Discover Exactly How You Move

Assessing Cameron’s movement as part of his trail running rehab program

We start by assessing your movement – bone by bone, joint by joint, muscle by muscle – and take into account everything that might be contributing to your pain, such as biomechanics, structure and even your psychology.

If you’re a runner we will watch you run. If you’re a powerlifter we will watch to you lift.

We all move in our own unique way and learning exactly how YOU move is the essential first step.

Step 2 – Uncover The Hidden Movement Problems Holding You Back

After assessing your movement we will then look at any specific areas that might be contributing to your movement problem.

This is where we test:

  • Range of motion – joint and skill specific
  • Stability – joint and skill specific
  • Strength and power – muscle and skill specific

Most rehab is focused around specific muscles of joints but looking at your movement as a whole is often a missing piece in rehab.

Step 3 – Learn New, Better Ways Of Moving

We then coach you into finding new ways of moving that will help you experience less pain, more strength and more confidence when you move.

You’ll also get a personalised program of exercises for you to perform daily or as part of your workout or warm-up routine that will help you get you out of pain and back to moving, training and performing at your best.

Real Results

“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 I 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” – Cameron Lacey-Coles

    L5/S1 Fracture (Lower Back)

    jo“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.”

    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

    Ankle rehabilitation exercises with Physio KatieI 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.”

    Groin Injury Rehabilitation

    Improving thoracic spine ROM in a step“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)

    Pain-Free Squatting

    Pain-Free Squatting“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!”
