“WHERE YOU THINK PAIN IS, THE PROBLEM IS NOT”
Ida Rolf founder of the Rolfing Technique
I studied Level 3 Sports Coaching, Sport Development and Fitness at Graig College, Llanelli and then went on to
Level 5 Advanced Diploma in Clinical Sports Therapy at Active Health Group in Manchester which was a great place for me to learn all the techniques and experiences.
I am currently using and developing these skills by working self employed in The Injury Clinic, St Clears. To add to my ever growing experience I am currently working with Crymych Rugby Club as a Sports Therrapist and have experienced treating professional rugby players and also professional golfers.
Treatment would involve testing and therefore a treatment plan which goes with the results of the testing. Techniques used in the sessions include trigger points, myofascial release, soft tissue release and mobilisation, deep transverse frictions, muscle energy techniques and also rehabilitation exercises. Electrical devices such as ultrasound or muscle stimulator can be used depending on the clients needs.
I am fluent speaking in Welsh and English and will happily speak either language to my clients.
My interest outside of work is rugby and I'm currently playing for Division 1 side Crymych Rugby Club.

Who is treating you?
The treatment used will depend on the injury or problem diagnosed.The following are some of the usual methods used at the clinic;
- We conduct a detailed case history of the condition.
-We then carry out a comprehensive range of diagnostic tests.
-Following this we generally mobilise the effected area by means of deep tissue massage.
-By this time we can ascertain not only the injury but also to what degree it is injured.
-From this stage a specific treatment plan can be implemented.
-There are a wide range of treatments available including electro-massage, ultra sound, interferential and manual manipulations to increase range of motion and flexibility, thereby reducing pain and promoting recovery.
Suspension Training for strength and rehabilitation
Treatments are run over a course and the normal duration is 3-5 sessions. Marked improvement is usually evident following 1 to 3 sessions. With home stretching exercises in your own time progress is much quicker,your co-operation in your recovery is absolutely paramount.
