Hello UKC collective!

The short version - any climbing/sports physios in Cardiff that anyone would recommend? =)

The long version, in case there are any bored physios on here....Last year I broke my ankle and tore one of the ligaments. 13 weeks in plaster, a ton of physio later and I was released by the physios in August. Then, in October this year, I managed to break/badly sprain (the doctor wasn't sure. Either way, plaster cast for 6 weeks!) the same ankle. Gutted doesn't quite cover it, especially as I was assured there was only a teeny tiny chance of me re-injuring the same ankle.... =(

I'm currently waiting for physio on the NHS, but after having the doctors appointment from hell this afternoon (the best thing for my injury is not to put any weight on, to avoid sport and he reckons it'll be weak forever and plague me in my old age) I'm wondering if coughing up for a sports physio might help recovery?

Cheers for reading and any help/advice.

Gemma =)

In reply to Gemma: Just recommended to me, but not tried. Sports treatment rather than physio, but having shelled out quite a bit on my back and hamstring recently, it's the treatment you want, not diagnosis and advice.

Also close to Uni of Glam.

Often wondered if UWIC must have a sports injury dept with lots of trainee people wanting to practice?

Sorry to hear how things have been going for you.

I was recommended this guy by a runner I know;

Mr Erjan Mustafa - he is an osteopath in Cardiff that specialises in sports injuries.

He sorted my leg problem in 4 appointments when doctors advice was 6 months rest. A quick google search will show his details and credentials. I was very pleased with the results, however, it was painful.

Fingers crossed for you,
