I started Sports Injury Fix having lived in lots of different places, had regular sports injuries, and got frustrated with the inability to quickly and easily find the best local specialists that understood my injury and the sports I did. I wanted to easily find the right treatment and make it easy for others to do the same.
I didn't want to receive another list of generic exercises, be told not to exercise for 6 months or have someone that wouldn't take the time to understand the issue and get to the root of the problem. I wanted to know more about the other professions that could help me, to clarify what physiotherapists, sports therapists, osteopaths, chiropractors, sports massage therapists, sports rehab specialists, podiatrists etc actually were and how each could help.
There are many experts that are excellent at treating sports injuries and providing advice and guidance to avoid and/or treat injuries. My aim is to find and promote this.
As a former footballer and tennis player turned runner and Ironman triathlete, I've had my fair share of injuries from either pushing too hard, not listening to my body and a bit of bad luck! Each time, it's been a long and expensive process to find someone good. Talking with friends and family made me realise I was not alone having these frustrations, they are an everyday issue for many people who love sports and exercise.
These experiences led me to develop Sports Injury Fix. Businesses can personalise their listings, you can see their reviews, qualifications and which associations they are members of helping you to make an informed choice. In short, I wanted to develop the resource that I've always craved and I hope it will prove useful for you too. Best of all, it's a completely free service concerned only with helping you find what you need! At our first event, the National Running Show January 2018 the photo below shows how well received it was.
