Here is Claire’s patient journey:
“I was doing a Tough Mudder event, and my foot got stuck in the mud. When I tried to pull it out, my trainer came off and I twisted my ankle. I knew I’d done something bad straight away. But I suppose the adrenaline made me carry on – plus I didn’t want to quit after training for 6 months.
I came to ThreeSixty Osteopathy through a friend who had also done the Tough Mudder, and I’m so glad I did. They didn’t make me feel silly for not stopping when I knew I’d injured myself and I felt relieved that I could get some treatment on it quickly.
What I found the most useful, was the stretches they gave me to do so that I could carry on running and keep my fitness up. I was previously doing lots of stretches, but none of them were really focused, and after seeing the osteo I had less stretches to do, but ones that were better for me.
For anyone thinking about trying osteo, I’d say give it a go. I didn’t really know much about osteo before, and I thought they only treated backs and necks. I felt that they really listened to me, and I’m really glad I went”.
