This is a regular feature of introducing some of our businesses and sharing their top tips on sports injuries, recovery and finding treatment
Who are you and where are you based?
Pete Lion, Sport Physiotherapist and Director of One Physiotherapy, Madejski Stadium, Reading. We specialise in:
Strength and Conditioning
Hand and Upper Limb Therapy
High Level Rehabilitation
What are the most common sports related injuries you see?
We see a range of sports injuries ranging from knee and back pain to post-operative knee, ankle and shoulder problems. We specialise in taking people back to performing at their best.
What's your top tip for reducing the risk of injury?
Be aware of your training load and how you progress. You want to get stronger and fitter as fast as you can without increasing the risk of injury. We can help guide this progression.
Are there any ways people can speed up their recovery?
Be thorough in your rehabilitation and take an active role. Understand your injury and the things that aggravate it and those that help you get better.
What should people look for when choosing a treatment provider?
Someone with good clinical experience who has ideally undertaken further Masters Degree level study. Most of all someone who listens to your story and your understanding of your injury and makes the rehab process relevant to you. There should be a focus on what you can do, not what you can't do.
