Injury Prevention

Improve the way you train

 

We scrutinise the way you train in the gym or dojo; on the street, field or pitch. We analyse the way you run, throw a kick, kick a ball or lift weights so we can improve the way your body moves and protect against future injury.

 

A detective for the body


Even if you’re not injured now, you may well have injury skeletons in your locker. So, using interviewing and slow-motion, full-body video analysis of the way you move, we build up an historic injury profile and current movement profile, then create a risk analysis for the future. We crack historic injury cases like a detective for the body. No matter how long ago you suffered an injury or trauma, and regardless of how you think it affected the movement of your body, it’s all connected and it all leaves a trace. Even psychological and vascular traumas take their toll on the body.

 

Not injured and want to stay that way?


Exercise forms the foundation of ProCare's philosophy but we are also experts in other areas which affect performance including nutrition, sleep, relaxation and psychology. We combine skilled movement and physical training with optimal rest, recovery, appropriate diet and a strong mind so you can excel in your chosen sport. Whatever it is you want to do: lose weight, gain muscle, or perform better, we will help you achieve it.

 

A mindful approach


We use a mindful approach to athletic training and are realistic about goals. It's important that you understand where you are starting from and where you want to be in the future. Collaboratively, we set short and long term goals so that training is tailored to you, and around your life. If you only have 20 minutes for a workout, we’ll design one for you. After spending time at the proCare clinic you will be robust, adaptable and complete.


 

I teach martial arts and also compete at an international level. I had persistent, worsening hip pain for about a year. I had seen various NHS physios and doctors and the answer had always been the same: "if it hurts, stop". As I had invested years of my life into my sport I was reluctant to take this advice and it was crushing to be told this by a professional. After a surgeon advised me to have open hip surgery, I knew that I needed to find an alternative solution and I'm so thankful I found Andrew. He is positive, proactive and inspiring to work with. In addition to treating my injury, he has shown me new ways to train, to strengthen myself and has helped me understand how I move and look at addressing issues, which can lead to pain. I feel stronger, faster and most importantly aside from stopping the pain, he has given me back the confidence that my body will work as I need it to. With his help I have just won two gold medals at our European championships and am preparing for the worlds next year. To achieve that 6 months after being told I'd never train again is incredible. I can't recommend ProCare highly enough.
