Aches and pains can dramatically impact on our lives. Former athlete Angela trained in Switzerland, where she specialised in sports physiotherapy. She’s a great source of information for anyone in pain.
I come from a sports background, having spent more than 15 years in athletic competition myself. I’m also currently dancing and teaching Argentine tango classes.
I’ve experienced many injuries myself and with this personal experience I can quickly recognise any symptoms you’re describing. Plus, I have wide experience in treatment of whiplash injuries, neck and back pain and pain during pregnancy.
Aches and pains, chronic or acute, can affect our lives in unpleasant ways. We all hope they’ll disappear with time and when they don't we try to get used to them. This usually results in a gradual restriction of our freedom of movement and a reduction of our energy and enthusiasm in everyday tasks. Our general performance can be affected, in sport, at work and even in our sex life.
I have 17 years experience in treating patients, lecturing students and coaching athletes. I trained in manual therapy as well as many other therapeutic techniques, and specialised in sports physiotherapy.
Through Greatvine I can offer you the chance to take the first step away from your injuries and pain. For example, some advice about stretching exercises or how to recognise wrong movement patterns and habits and how to change them can help to decrease discomfort and improve your general day-to-day quality of life.
