Injury Prevention

Tim Budd physiotherapist mountain biking

Preventing injuries is part of what we do at Global Therapies. One aspect of this is periodic (weekly, bi-weekly or monthly) maintenance massage, which many of our regular clients benefit from. Another very important aspect is for you to be fully aware of the reasons behind injury and to know ways in which you can help to prevent injury.  To help you achieve this goal we like to educate our clients, either in person during treatments, or through the articles we write on our blog.

While you can search through all of our articles we thought we would help you find some of the most frequently read posts relating to Injury Prevention:
