Topic - Physio recommendation

BusyLizzie on 30 Jun 2013
Could anyone recommend a sports physio in Reading (where I live) or central London (where I work)?

Oh, and in case anyone has a similar experience and bright ideas: for months now I have had, well, how can I put this, a (mild) pain in the bum and down the backs of the thighs when running, and to some extent in between-times too. It is not stopping me doing things - I climb a couple of times a week, and run likewise. Don't usually run very far, but did a half marathon in April - so the pain is not stopping me doing things, but it's a nuisance.

My own armchair theory is that, having started climbing and running rather late in life (was 48, now 51) I have needed to develop muscles that i just haven't had before. It's only in these last few months that I have felt that I am starting to use my legs more effectively when climbing (rather than hauling myself up on jugs!). I've wondered if the pain was all about growing unfamiliar muscles, which are constantly being stressed while they are growing.

Anyway, I'd be interested to try a physio who is going to understand about exercise (rather than saying "stop larking around you daft old woman and get back to your knitting").
