Injury Rehabilitation

Sports Therapy is all about treating musculoskeletal injuries, whether you are an sports person or not makes no difference. Andrew is qualified in Sports Massage, Dry Needling, IASTM and Spinal Manipulations. Sports Massage is an extremely effective treatment for a variety of injuries and body issues and even if you have no injuries at all and just want to improve your performance on the sports pitch or your state of mind and body. Regular massage:

Gait Analysis

Gait analysis is a fantastic way of delving into your running style allowing us to get to the bottom of injuries and sources of inefficiency when running. Not only will you be video assessed on a treadmill, but I will also put you through full “run specific” strength testing. This will allow us to identify any potential weaknesses that could be improved through gait re-training or by implementing a strength plan.

Personal Training

One to One personalised sessions for people who really want to challenge themselves to create change in their body, this includes a training programme and constant support throughout.

The Gym based sessions take place at Morgans Wellbeing Centre, Plymouth an absolutely fantastic Gym facility with superb space for Personal Training so each session is tailored exactly to your needs.

Or, if you want to bring a friend to train with you and create change together, Two to One sessions are available as well. It’s a fantastic way to get fit with a friend or partner and really push each other to be the best you can be.

Tailored Pre-Armed Forces and public service fitness plans

As a former Royal Marines PTI I have worked with all of the other forces, especially the Army and Navy. I have an in-depth knowledge of the standards required of potential Recruits and Trainees and I still have a close link and work with many of the Armed Forces training establishments.

Whether you are looking to join the Royal Navy, Army, Royal Air Force or the Royal Marines your programme will be specifically tailored to you and the tests you will encounter in training. There will be plenty of inside tips on the Military and the sessions will build up to give you a good insight to the world of the Armed Forces. If you are looking to join the Police or Fire Service programmes can also be tailored to ensure you success with the physical aspects of the respective joining processes.
