At Monkman Physiotherapy we have extensive experience of working in sport and in the acute hospital setting where taping is a very popular treatment tool. We have the skills to use taping of many different shapes, sizes and colours to help you manage your injury.
BENEFITS OF TAPING
Tom has been instrumental in my recovery from a repetitive calf injury. As as keen endurance athlete himself, he applied his passion for sport and understanding of anatomy to create a program that would suit my training. His follow up and after care is second to now. Would highly recommend to others.
Tom has always been a great physio for me, I recently had a long term back pain that I did not know the source. He checked me over and advised me what to do and within a couple months it has completely gone.
I’ve had multiple calf injuries due to level of exercise required to compete as a semi professional Ironman athlete. Specifically an injury picked up during a middle distance triathlon. Through using his specialist knowledge around triathlon, Tom used massage and showed me some great exercises to assist me back to competition.
I suffered a double break to my collarbone after a cycling accident. An 8 week recovery process proved to be only partially successful and I required surgery. Post surgery I spoke to Tom who recognised the importance of getting my mobility and strength back so I could get back on my bike. Tom provided me exercises to do, which helped to restore my range of mobility and importantly provided me with some strength that resolved the numbness I would feel on rides longer than 30 minutes.
Tom is a great professional who understands the passion we all have for sport and will have you up and running again in no time.
