We carry out your assessment using three simple steps:

FIND - First, we will ask you to perform a series of specific movement tests, which are designed to determine the locations of your body’s uncontrolled movements. From here we are able to identify and assess these weak links.

ANALYSE - Following this we create a personalised report that details which areas of your body are at low, immediate and high risk of injury.

FIX - Using this report we are than able to generate a tailor made retraining programme that combines low threshold and high threshold training. Low threshold training helps to provide the improved co-ordination needed to acquire better movement control. High threshold training creates the speed and strength conditioning necessary to protect you from potential injury.

“Trying to bridge the training gap to take on a marathon only to have to pull out due to a combination of shin splints, calf strains and back ache has been my problem for years. Janet’s expert treatment of the initial injuries led to a quick recovery. However the sports injury screening and subsequent training plan that Janet developed to solve the route cause (lower back problem) has been a revelation. I now have my own web based training programme which targets and strengthens muscles I never knew I had!!
The quick and easy training programme is now firmly part of my weekly training routine. First marathon now complete and smashed my target time – injury free – thanks Janet”
