Rehab the body – not the injury!

Speaking at the recent Physiotherapists in Sports conference, former Olympic USA coach Vern Gambetta called on delegates to consider the whole body and the brain when treating patients. ‘If it hurts, we look for where it hurts, and we rehab the hell out of that, and leave the rest of it,’ he said.

‘You can see a lot by watching’ – Gambetta said, ‘We miss what we don’t see. Sometimes it’s as simple as watching someone from all sides.’

This approach resonates and underpins everything we do in the AAA-Physio clinic at Moti – Which is why we get great results!
So if your are stuck in a loop of; injury – rest – re-injury and can’t see a way out. Book some expert help from the Therapy Team at Moti

Athletics and Triathlon – Physio #1

Having visited John with a right knee problem prior to the Portishead Traithlon, I have with his help managed to complete 3 events without any further issue. John worked on my running technique and my back to great effect.I picked up a pain in my left knee a few weeks back following a hard track interval session, having rested for a week I then aggravated it again this Tue and decided to visited John on Thursday. Later Thursday I was able to run 10k without any knee pain, which I could not believe and have had no issue with today.

Fabulous effective physio – Thanks KL

John was great for treatment, coaching and advice. I would have really struggled to run 26.2 miles without his help. Thanks!

Can’t think of anything.

Outstanding – I have used many therapists both here and in London. It’s been a great “find” to get a depth of knowledge and shared concern for a really optimal outcome right near my work in Bristol. I will certainly be recommending but maybe not quite yet to my race colleagues!
13/8/2011 3:49
Much more thorough explanation of both problems and treatment given than I have ever experienced before.
12/8/2011 16:46
Very happy just keep up the good service level – Sometimes have problems with appointments running to time.

John is the best physio I have ever seen
27/4/2011 12:53

Really happy with the treatment. i struggled to get time off work otherwise i would have had a few more follow up appointments.
29/3/2011 22:27
Unknown condition but John still took time to write a letter to my doctor recommending I get referred to a hospital. Thank you!
29/3/2011 21:13
Gave me a brand new neck/back?!?
29/3/2011 18:04
It was very good I am attending aqua fit and over 50 circuit training classes, when I get the chance and slowly improving. Many thanks.

An exceptional experience with outstanding results! Lizzie has regained almost all movement in her arm and shoulder without pain. – She would benefit from a follow-up appointment as suggested, but as her problem was worsened due to the length of time it had gone untreated – it was inevitable that she would experience some pain in undoing the problems that had developed as a result.
At the moment Lizzie can’t be persuaded to come back for a follow-up appointment as she is wary of any more pain even though it was explained to her that the worst is over! She is only 13 so is not able to see the ‘no pain no gain’ situation she was in and she feels back to normal so it’s off her radar, as it were!
Nonetheless there can be no doubt that John’s skill has enabled Lizzie to return to the very active life she led before the injury and diverted the situation from becoming intractable. Many, many thanks!
